Re: Summer Tour 2011 Predictons!!!#7530 3 years agoLowell was a sweet show but they were not prepared for the traffic at all, I moved about a mile in an hour and a half going to park......and they had this big huge parking garage right near the place that wasn't even being used! what was up with that?
Everybody complains about tickets prices......I don't know many cheaper bands to see except maybe local or unknown ones, and considering the show these guys put on, there worth every penny I pay!
I paid under 100 bux for front row at Wallingford, any other popular band would of been 200+....
Also whos to say theres only doing long runs in small places?? ........incase nobody has been paying attention - every one of there tours is pretty damn different, the current one is mostly small venues while the last was big arenas and last summer was a good mix of ballpark and other outdoor venues.......
Why, or should I say HOW are you people complaining??? enless your out west or middle of country then I understand but come on, complaining about prices???
The way I see it......the cheaper the price, the more people you get at shows that don't care about the music!
I'd rather be surrounded by good vibes at the shows and people that don't talk through every quiet part then to have cheap tickets and be next to a bunch of people looking to get fucked up and not into the music.....
As always, I mean no offense to anybody with anything that I say...

Re: Summer Tour 2011 Predictons!!!#7719 3 years agoLast 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!Peals of fragile thunder...keeping time...

Re: Summer Tour 2011 Predictons!!!#7787 3 years ago>>>"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
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

Re: Summer Tour 2011 Predictons!!!#7818 3 years agoAs 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, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.
