I have a request of Furthur...
Please, please provide us with some info about New Year's 2013/14. Perhaps you feel it self-evident, but your hiatus announcement says "After the four night Furthur run in Mexico in January, the band will take the rest of 2014 off", which does not include New Year's 2013/14, so it's not so clear.
I'm sure I can't be the only person out here that really wants a New Year's run, but would rather see an announcement saying no New Year's shows this year than to continue being overly anxious about getting tickets, a hotel room, and transportation at this late date. Last year I bought tickets on October 19, but we don't even have an "official" announcement yet. I saw people discussing deposits they were going to lose a month ago, but still no announcement.
We happily buy your tickets, but we really need an announcement so we can make our New Year's plans. Hopefully, before we can't get airline holiday season seats and hotel rooms. So how about it, please make an announcement, one way or another...
