I'll be there. I'm primarily a freak for the '60s through mid '70s stuff and have only been to about 7 shows featuring any Dead members(am I welcome here?) so I can't really offer any predictions and my wish list includes a lot of songs that many hardcore fans are sick to death of but here it is-
Golden Road, Other One, New Potato, St. Stephen, China Cat, Dark Star, Eleven, Uncle John's, Casey, Friend, Sugar, Ripple, Truckin', Jack, Eyes, Wheel, Unbroken, Scarlet, Estimated, Terrapin, etc..
Lucy In the Sky or anything from Magical Mystery Tour would be great too!
I'm sure that's eye roll inducing to many of you but I haven't heard most of these songs more than a few hundred times even on my own stereo system since I started getting into the Dead about 11 or 12 years ago so I'm not sick of them yet
I've seen DSO at least as many times as I've seen Phil, Ratdog, The Other Ones, and "The Dead"(no Jerry for me
) combined and I usually really like their shows. This will be my first Furthur show and I'm quite excited!
I have been a lot more hyped on the dead lately and want to buy the studio albums I still don't have and check out live recordings from the '80s and '90s. It's partly a matter of money and time but hopefully I've got another good 50 or 60 years left to do it, Bobby and Phil keep going as long as possible(and Bill and Mickey!), and DSO continue indefinitely! Grateful Dead music is right up there with Yes and Sabbath for me! Old rock rules!
I'll be in row 20 riding the fun gus bus
