Re: Furthur please let us know if Nov. tour is on

#54211 3 years ago
MSG will be available in November - they already have a bunch of stuff booked, I think construction ends in October sometime.....

as much as I would love another long NYC run at a small place like Best Buy or Beacon, I think its unlikely for this tour but much more likely for a late winter/spring 2012 tour.....

---- Mansfield was the emptiest Furthur show I've seen, also Jones Beach had tons of tickets left the day before the show - I dunno how many sold the day of. Jones Beach was such a perfect place for them to play though - heres hoping for a return next year!

Furthur doesn't need to sell venues out to make money. The band gets a guarantee from the promoter, and probably part of the gate. If they are filling 5000 seats they are making money. The venues are making tons of money on concessions alone. Last year in St. Louis they sold out of beer at set break. Thats a ton of money at $10 a pop.

Another thing I noticed last year is that the show was not promoted very well in general. Their were ads in the RFT, our free weekly, but there weren't any right ups . They also don't use the Grateful dead connection in the ads. Everybody on this board knows who Furthur is, but many casual fans out there don't. That's why the Dead could sell put a 20000 seat amphitheater, and Furthur didn't sell out a 10,000 seat arena.


I didn't think Furthur would come back to St.Louis because the arena was only half full. But getting guarantee from the promoters gives me hope! Plus I think they should play the new Peanody Opera house. It's opening in October so they can help put some energy into the place! And I didn't know we sold outta beer. That's funny! But then again I don't drink...

A funny story I'll share though. I went up to Chicago right after and the first night I was waiting in line for the cd. I was standing next to this beer cart on wheels. But it was shut down and pushed to the side. Some concertgoer walks up to the spout thing and starts to pour himself a drink. I thought it was so funny. He left then came back with his friends and started filling everyone's cups up. It was the funniest thing! Well the next night I'm waiting in line for the cd and my friend points out to me that they had a security guard standing next to the closed down beer cart......o BUMMER!

Yeah Peabody would be amazing. WSP is playing there in October. I am really hoping for anything close, KC, Indy, Chicago ETC. I will do all those dates. I guess will will know tomorrow either way.
I wish I was the headlight on a northbound train.

I have 2.5 vacation days left to use in 2011. Should I use them while the weather is nice, or hang on to them in case there is a weekday out of town show I want to hit?

I kind of like when they dont use the GD connection in ads.Makes for more room to dance and spread out.Plus,i'm guessing alot of you are younger but the GD played to small crowds in half empty rooms more times than you would think.We are a quirky group. Bob Weir and Phil Lesh are not playing music together for money.I hope you guys dont think that.Anyway, I hope they come east in Nov.
At least I'm still enjoying the ride !!!!!
