Well I thought today would finally be the day they announced some shows but nothing. What gives?

Not a good idea to release dates on April Fools.
The Deadheads gather at the rim of the volcano to dance and sing joyful songs in honor of their fallen hero.

Last year Eugene and Portland were sooo sweet. Eugene was a rain show, but nobody gave a fuk...we were all too blissed out and happy to have the band at this small, sweet venue. Pleez visit Eugene again Furthur....so nice and much Dead history there!

>>>"the problem with the West is...it's the West. It's spread out, sparsely populated and tough to book gig"<<<<

Furthur (and previously Phil & Friends) are the ONLY band that don't do quality West Coast/SW tours... Ratdog did awesome tours west of Colorado! Check out WSP's summer tour: www.widespreadpanic.com/ontour.php

Even Phish spreads it out out here..


..and by the way, "Spread out" is a damn good thing.. These nightmare urban area shows just give me the concrete blues.. Gimme more shows surrounded by trees and up in the thin cool air of the mtns...


Just take a looks at Ratdogs last summer tour: ratdog.org/2009/setlists#0705
Great venues-
East: Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey, NY, Penn., Georgia, Florida, N. Carolina, Hampton, CT.

West: Oregon(Jacksonville, Eugene), Seattle(WA), Spokane(WA), Missoula(MT), Boise(ID), SLC(UT), Colorado(Boulder, Denver), Las Vegas, San Diego, Greek(LA), Pozo(CA),

Then back east for a big run in NYC!

Now that is a killer tour!!!! Cover both coasts, a few mid-west, then a run in NYC to cap it off!! Everyone is happy

Who can argue with that.. ..and people still will say that Furthur can't fill places out west. BULLSH*T! Ratdog packed'm in.. When you put together nice tours it pulls people in. People will travel with the tour. The tour gains hype. Furthur never gives it a chance to get hyped up. Just a mess of shows in the NYC area and a few SUPER SPREAD OUT shows on the west coast that just don't make sense for travelers

As long as we all have a resonable shot at a show or two. I love summer tours. Best time of the year! : )
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.
