Furthur September 2010 Tour
Thursday, 12 August 2010 01:42
Furthur’s west coast run in September will see the band hitting some magnificent venues. The first stop features two nights at the magical Cuthbert Amphitheatre in what is likely one of the most Dead Head-friendly cities in America, Eugene, OR. The first time any GD members played here was in August, 1999, when Phil and Friends played two nights at Cuthbert as part of the Summer Sessions, a tour featuring String Cheese Incident, Gov’t Mule and moe. These two shows are followed by another small Pacific Northwest gig near Seattle, in Redmond, WA, followed by a show at another great venue, the Santa Barbara County Bowl, a small outdoor amphitheatre familiar to southern California Heads from Jerry’s and Bob’s appearances there in the 1970s, as well as Phil and Friends’ appearance on that August, 1999 tour that hit Eugene. The Greek in LA is up next, followed by the Joint in Las Vegas, with the tour ending with what is the most anticipated series of Furthur shows since those of a year ago when the band debuted at the Fox in Oakland, with three nights at Red Rocks. The Grateful Dead’s history at Red Rocks since 1978 is well known, and has continued with numerous Phil and RatDog appearances over the past decade. It’s as though they’ve been there so long, they’ve got to calling it home.
