East coast got 3/4 of the tours this year and now your bitching about a little drive? Suck it up! Like queenie said, back in the day deer creek>st louis then back to chicago, and we did it lovingly and happily. Granted (newyawker) we did have a day for travel. But that's why you travel with friends and share the driving.


Funk: I think perhaps we may be talking past each other. I am not bitching, just asking a question!! My question is based on the historical fact that when I toured there was alway a travel day. Just wondering why there is not this leg. I am fine doing what i can. I am just not slingshotting across the NE. Besides the fact my night vision sucks big time!!!


Sorry dude I didn't mean to come off as an ahole. Like I said maybe you can get some friends to travel withand share the driving.


No worries marc. This is an example of internet blindness. Calrification is needed more than we sometimes do compared to being face to face.

As an aside, I bet they have 2 road crews.

Guess I should clarify too. "east coast old tours" pretty much went in a straigh line north to south or vice versa. The one I am really referring too is MsG>Syracuse>AC>Buffalo East-west-east -west. AC>MSG>Sryacuse>Buffalo makes a lot more sense. I am going to go out on a limb that some of the larger venues are not going to be nearly full. Looks like only WB here this go round (after 3 red rocks). Patch our bones and look forward to another 5 night tower run in the spring (fingers crossed)

We really have nothing to complain about. With most likely 2 more shows in December that will make 74 shows for the year. Hopefully Phil will want to continue to do more show per year than his age.

first Furthur show: 2/19/10

Re: Tour manager must be on crack!

#57111 2 years, 11 months ago
you wont see me complaining...I live in Southern New Hampshire so The Amherst, Ma show and Manchester, NH are less than an hour and half from me with only three days between to wait for the next show!! I could also Truck on up to Portland if i really have the cash. Just keep this train rollin!! The only logistical problem is from the heads that try to get to EVERY show, but that's a only a small number of us. No fair complaining, just feel lucky these guys still tour in this fashion, simply amazing.

newyawker- well they closed one of my favorite places - clark's ale house is no longer! so maybe the blue tusk or there is a cool bar on state street (name not comming to me right now) and if it is not snowing- there will be a shakedown! will have to see when it gets a bit closer.
DON'T TELL ME THIS TOWN AIN'T GOT NO HEART....JUST GOTTA POKE AROUND!

i think bob and phil arent really concerned with making a tour that is easy to follow and see every show. they seem to be doin short runs of shows in areas then hoppin somewhere else, with very few diehards doin the whole tour. i think they are trying to make it more about the music and less about the whole lot scene. i love haning out in the lot b-4 the show, and after, and i like to buy food, art, beer, etc in the lots, but i dont htink the boys want the scene to explode into something that they cant control and might get them banned from venues/citys, like back in 94-95. not that they are selling anywhre near that many tickets. i totally dig they tour layouts, out here on the west coast, what im doin is, see i live in nor cal, so im goin up to eugene(3 shows) then doin hardlystrictly in the park, then catching LA and Monterey(4 shows total) so i see 7 furthur shows on my west coast tour, plus a free 3 day concert in golden gate park thrown inthe middle to help avoid the temptation to go to the missula or utah or colarodo shows. they will probably be epic shows, but its kewl seeing the first shows of tour, then seeing them at monterey to end the west coast tour. THANK YOU BOB AND PHIL
