Vegas, no Rumor shakedown, what now?

#67434 2 years, 9 months ago
Anyone know where it's going down? The folks at Rumor Hotel have said there is absolutely no vending or any Furthur-friendly activity at their property Tuesday.

Any vendors or locals or insiders have good info on where the pre-show is? Hard Rock is not a head-friendly place at all. 4 of us are here from NY for the show. Would rather spend time with the show family instead of at the craps tables on Tuesday =)

Side note - fondly remembering the days when one of the Books here had a line on what the band would open with at high-profile shows

No "authorized" vending. Not surprised. This is downtown Vegas, right?

its vegas, just go,, and when you get there, follow the hippies, im sure in vegas they wont be hard to find. and im sure, they will have a lot, you probably have to pay to park in, that will have hippies wondering around, wispering strang things, if not a full blown rainbow kitchen. people worry so much.

Not worried. Just prefer hanging with the family on show days over the Casino crowd.

we WILL be the casino crowd. The place is usually a ghost town on tuesdays. They better be "head friendly" we will bring in lots of money for them tuesday. The Hard Rock is not doing splendid these days financially.
Let's all meet up and be kind.

Exxxxcellent, Smithers.

I wasn't there, but my wife fondly remembers one of the 80s shows at the Aladdin where all day long people were using the courtesy phone.

That's hysterical! I bet a casino show would be a lot of fun.

Same thing happened at the airport in 91. Constant pages for Phil, Jerry, and Jack Straw. Bummer about shakedown. I was really hoping to score a Little something to make the Vegas lights shine a bit brighter. Let me know if you'll be in Vegas and have the hook up.

Ah jeez, my message was lost. So I'll put it out there again.

We flew in from NYC a few days early for our 16th show of 2011 - our furthest trek for Furthur to date! We've done Vegas plenty, every which way, but never for a show, not even in 80s-90s. Heard there was great music and positive vibes at a pre-show gathering last year near Hard Rock. Hope to find those positive vibes this year. A bar playing the boys' music, new friends to be made.

Maybe some people worry about where to buy...whatever..in the city they're rolling into. I'm not. This whole city is a shakedown 365/24/7. I figured the vend crowd would have info on friendly spots to congregate pre-show.

Maybe we'll see hippies near the Bellagio tomorrow, or someplace near venue. We just want to be social. This place is sprawling. But you're right, we'll find our good vibes in Vegas. The responses here felt a bit dismissive.

good show y'all
