So some of you swear by 3/18/11? I think the next night at the Tower was one of the best Furthur shows I've seen. If I had one song to demonstrate to someone who'd never heard them what all the buzz was about I'd choose the Slipknot! from that night.

Of the 16 times I've seen the band so far, the other shows that really stand out are the second night at the Mann last year, the second night at Best Buy last summer, and the first night at MSG.

I'm also someone who loved all five Tower shows but if I had to be real selective, the four I mentioned above would be my top picks.

first Furthur show: 2/19/10

Re: name your favorite furthur show

My first Furthur show, 2/19/10 which was also me and my fiances 5th anniversary. Phil was playing the glowing blue ritter bass and bobby played the black and PINK ibenez. They still had jay lane jumping around and hitting stuff. Mushroom chocolates and and headies all night, puffin made in the second row made things nice. The second set was just all I could ask for:
Creaky wooden boat sounds gave way to the best version of lost sailor>saint ive ever heard, 20 minutes total
Lost sailor> (11:01)
Saint (9:06)
New speedway boogie> (9:56)
King solomons marbles> (9:33)
Caution> (13:54)
Dark star> (20:34)
Otherone> (8:26)
Let it grow> (13:47)
Not fade away reprise (8:41) (reprised from first set, kicking off the first set!
Encore of a reggae infused knockin on heavens door!

I'm in complete agreement on 3.19....

I was lucky enough to be there and finally listened to soundboard last night. What I thought then and was reconfirmed on second listen is that it is in my top 10 GD experiences....and I saw some classics from 79 to 90.

The show is rippin' from top to bottom, with Music>BEW>He's gone opener, but that second set had some exploration that makes it special..Dark Star >We Love You> sandwich into Help>SllpfuckcrazyKnot> into who knew where it was going, drop 11.

I love "fantagical" What a perfect word ~ Tnanks

My fave show is always changing, I start listening to one and then I almost listen to it to death, then I let it rest and come back to it later.

This year I did it to all the Broomfield shows, the March 12th Best Buy show, the Broome county(3/29/11) show the Boca Raton show & both nights at Shoreline. I am now in the process of doing it to the Vibes show of this year.

Anyone can recommend another show from this last tour and I'll give it a whirl.

I saw all the shows from Bethel to PNC, but I never process how I felt at the actual show with how it sounds listening to them until waaaaaay after. Sometimes I am completely surprised.

Someone on twitter said Mansfield ~ anyone concur??

i don't know if i'm the minority here but as much as i love a good sound board recording i really enjoy the energy and sounds of people singing from the crowd recordings.

The music that pops out in the SBD is pretty amazing, lots of subtle notes and melding of instrumets is really enhanced on the live SBD's. But if you want a more authentic feel of the show u have to listen to a high grade audio. Of course the matrix mixes really bring the best of both worlds.
