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.

What a great show and what a run. All three were very different from one another. Bobby sounded GREAT!, and the band was as tight as I've heard them. It was a really special stand:

My favorite was Saturday. I thought the 2nd set was truly epic, not a word I use lightly; and a killer 1st set to led into it.

Sunday was beautifully balanced, and was probably my favorite 1st set....really, both sets were chalk full of gems.

Friday delivered the goods with an odd 1st set mix, played beautifully.

Anyways, all going to Vegas and beyond have a wonderful time, we'll be listening (thank you Taperrob!)

I had a great time at the 3 shows. Surrounded by friends from all
over the country, many of whom have been close for 3 decades, we
reveled in the beauty of the scene.

Musically, highlights for me were: Friday: The Wheel, and Eyes of the
World which soared, and Scarlet-Fire and I Know You Rider in Set II
which got the place jumpin'.

On Saturday, my brother joined us (a non-deadhead, and he had a
blast-how could you not with the scene we were in?).

Musically very solid: Loved Candyman, Big River, Bird Song and a
smokin' set closing Passnger.

In set II Box of Rain was sublime; I love the expanded version of that
wonderful song. The Dark Star had some nice spacy exploration, with
Chimenti synth and rhythm and tempo changes that I always like Furthur
to do, so I was into it. There was a beautiful jazzy piano solo by
Chimenti prior to Days Between as I had heard him do in Atlantic City.
Very cool.

Shakedown and Not Fade Away once again got us dancing our butts off
and smiling ear to ear.

Sunday's Here Comes Sunshine opener was languid and delightfully
stretched out, and the transition and subsequent Crazy Fingers were
just right. Cumberland, Wharf Rat and Sugaree also did it for me.

The 2nd set Playin' on Sunday was so smooth, just flowing.
Then the rest of the set was just spot on: every song: Uncle John's,
St. Stephen (at a nice clip) an emotional Comes a Time with Sunshine
harmonizing on the whole song, Let it Grow and Help Slip Franklins were
just about as much fun as is possible.

The US Blues encore was slightly blown by Bobby but we made up for it
by singing along.

At times the band's pacing was a bit plodding, which can be the case,
but they always work their way through it and end up delivering.

A number of my crew are picky Deadheads and have their complaints
about Furthur, but the bottom line was even the picky ones came to have
fun with their friends, and nobody sat with their arms crossed. We
all danced and laughed and loved.

I'm not going to go into a whole lot of analysis of Furthur vs GD,
John K vs Jerry, whether Phil or Bobby are jerks to other former band
members, I don't know any of the backstory and the comparisons have
already been hashed over. I just love being in that beautiful scene
with my friends with our beloved songs played live and with feeling,
so we can celebrate our short time together on this earth.

Thanks Furthur for setting the stage for an unforgettable weekend,
and one I will treasure forever.

Considering the state of the government, I think US Blues was an appropriate encore.

Thoroughly enjoyed this show, despite the many repeats. It was a great closer show for me personally since no Vegas or LA in my future....

Loved the shows... but did everyone miss the Supplication Jam in the middle of the Uncle J's?
