Really tough. Best 3 or 4 based on plain ol' fun:

* MCU 7/13/12. My first east coast show.......ever after 31 years. Also a trip to NYC to honor my parents who both had passed away in the prior 6 years. Met so many great people out in Shakedown and then in at the show. The Jack brought the place down, I was ready to go home but it just the end of the 1st set.

Second set was just awesome, with a great mix of songs and the best part, the fireworks. The next night wasn't too bad either.

* Cuthbert 9/23/11. Sunshine Daydream day, easy walk from hotel and a great crowd. Got great seats and called the Stranger > Shakedown opener. Loved the Strawberry Fields, very psychedelic. Funny walk back to hotel. Great time.

* Gilford 7/16/13. Just an absolutely beautiful place in America. New to me so the adventure was a blast, I really love that element of the touring. Great crowd, fun people I was hangin with. All met that night. Don't even care that I got my pipe confiscated on the way in.

* LA Greek 10/5/12. Great seats but perhaps my favorite dancing show. Had section A ticks but spent most the time dancing in the aisle from one side of the venue, across the front, to the other side of the venue. I have realized that I truly love 3D dancing with linear motion. Ok, I am crazy.

* Broomfield 2/22/13. A great day of skiing followed by a great nite of music. That says it all. I could also easily choose all 3 shows from 2011,

DeadlyDan asks: List the top 3 FURTHUR shows you have attended based on the overall experience not just a killer setlist or epic RR venue.
It may be difficult to stop at three but what the hey I'll give it a shot:
12/31/09 - First new years show. Three sets plus encore. Stayed with friends who lived in the city by the bay and had come to the east coast in Sept of 09 to see the first five east coast shows (2 in Manhattan 1 in Wallingford Ct and 2 in Asbury Park). My friends were so kind and took such good care of me. Luved the Dark Star > Time. Also breaking in the new decade with Golden Road > Let it Grow. Good Stuff.
3/15/11 - Best Buys. NYC - Phil's birthday. Free cupcakes. Side 2 of Abbey Road. Phil singing Mean Mr. Mustard and John applauding right after. What a super duper birthday party. On a purely musical level 3/12/11 was probably a better show but did I mention that it was Phil's birthday?
3/26/11 - Radio City Music Hall NYC. For those not familiar Radio City is a beautiful place to see a concert. Acoustics and architecture are the best of the best. Second row seat on the first loge all the way on the right. Could either sit or stand (unobstructed view) with plenty of room to dance. Beautiful people. I fell in luv with three women in front of me and I was in the second row. I know the song selection is not suppose to be part of this but... Set one Golden Road Viola Alligator. My only Alice D Milionaire > Cream Puff War. Set 2 Dark Star > Eclipse > Mountains of the Moon > Dark Star > Terrapin > Stella. Well played. Very special night. After two killer sets I was not even overly bumed by the Sat Night encore. LOL.
I left Red Rocks out of this list but... Best outdoor venue ever. Three days and nights with the best FFF folks ever. Party by the pool after the show. Luved the Sunday show. 5 PM start. Steal Your Face set list. Did I mention that Red Rocks is a way cool place to hang.

top 3 shows....
I'm going with

1. Red Rocks 2012 night 3
2. Boston 2012 night 1
3. Cooperstown, because I'd been chasing Bertha and finally caught her after 17 shows!
Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry
