I certainly hope that there is some shows planned for out west. When The Dead toured last spring they only played a few shows out here. What's the deal do the tour planners only believe that sellouts occur east of the Mississippi?

Hopefully this is just the first leg of a Summer tour with more shows to be added. Let's do a Fall Tour too and swing back through Florida and do some more dates. I'm thinking a three night run at the Cruzan Ampitheater in West Palm Beach would be great, 20,000 seats plus a lawn plus a huge parking area for the Shakedown St. The guys did Furthur Fest there in '96 and '97 and it worked great. More shows for Florida, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, we love shows in Florida. On the BUS since 12-29-1968, and I'm never getting off.

Did you ever read that book, "Stranger in a Strange Land"? That's how it seems sometimes when I read the weirdness here and elsewhere. Time comes on around for all of us, the river can't be pushed, it flows by itself. We'll see 'em when we see 'em, in the meantime save up and listen to 'em on archives. BTW, 2/24 was amazing on that website.

This is cruel, cruel, cruel!I couldn't make any of these winter dates (though still crossing my fingers for Chicago) and I'm gonna be on the West Coast all of June and Hawaii all of July. Not that I'm complaining about spending a couple of months amidst tropical loveliness, but damn! Oh well, have fun everybody and save me a hot Scarlet/Fire and a veggie burrito.

Guys, I'm sure there will be more dates added. But with that being said, bands like to play where they sell the most tickets. If Furthur sold as many tickets in Ohio and Indiana as they do in MA and NY, I'm sure you'd see more shows in the midwest. And I don't feel bad for the West Coast heads. Sorry folks. Hard for me to feel bad for you. The Grateful Dead and it's various offshoots have played and continue to play more shows in the Bay Area than anywhere else in the world.

That's the summer tour?? What?? I understand though, you know, NY doesn't get enough shows. Give me a break. As far as selling out - you don't think they would sell out red rocks?? Please!! For the winter tour I'm travelling 3,000 miles to see a whopping 2 shows. That's a lot of miles and a lot of hotel rooms... not to mention the 3,000 some miles I travelled for the Dead. Lets see that's over 6,000 miles to catch 5 shows.. I enjoy road tripping and all but still. Ratdog tours around the 4 corner states why can't Furthur?

I'd love an Ohio date. Buffalo got a show this winter and now another in the spring. If I gotta, I may make a road trip up I90 for a nice long weekend and a stop at the Anchor Bar.

The NE provides the means for having a bunch of shows within a couple hundred miles of each other - less travelling for them. But I admit I am jealous. For once I'd just like to drive oh maybe "only" a 1,000 miles while catching a good 6 or 7 shows ... that's all I'm asking ... :-) "Here's my half a dollar if you dare .. double twist when you hit the air.

You people complain a lot, for a bunch of folks who were just informed that their favorite band is going on tour.My only complaint was directed toward myself and my lousy timing! "You guys suck"?!?!? Come on, did you really just say that? In case you missed the last few decades, Phil is about to turn 70! Any touring they do at all these days, be it in Saskatchewan or Kilimanjaro or New York City, should be counted as a blessing.

Awesome venues for Summer Tour! Coney Island, AWRIGHT!! According to the NYC Mayor's office, Coney is slated to be improved with the addition of about 15 new rides in time for this summer's season!! It is so fabulous that Furthur is playing at Coney, you all are in for a real treat!! Swimming in the Atlantic, playing on the Boardwalk, seeing the boys....fun in the sun at my favorite subway station mecca, Stillwell Avenue. I can taste the salt now...see, a Brooklyn peach is when you run back to your blanket at Coney, and you aunt hands you a warm, juicy peach, and when you bite into it with your salty lips, it's the best thing you ever ate in your life...Coney is also the home of that gift of Poseidon, cotton candy blown free from the candy machine by a good stiff sea breeze! Sadly for me this weekend conflicts with the Kate Wolf Memorial Music Festival here in Cal., or I would surely fly out...David Grisman and the Neville Brothers versus the boys at Coney...that's a tough one for sure. I checked Wikipedia about this stadium and it said people could not pass between the seats and the field, so that's something to be aware of. The Gelsten Castle Estate looks fabulous, too, reminiscent perhaps of the Saratoga Springs venue. I believe we will see some more shows announced. I wish people wouldn't leave selfish, mean posts, as though acting like a spoiled, nasty child is going to get you anywhere. Quit the infantile foot stomping, people.

I made one complaint and its a valid one. Trust me I'm grateful for what I can get but we don't get too much out this way and so we have to make sacrifices if we want to see our favorite band. Good for you that you all in the NE get so many shows! That's awesome and you are lucky. "Here's my half a dollar if you dare .. double twist when you hit the air.

I didn't really mean to admonish a bunch of people just for the simple wish that the tour would come to their neck of the woods; hell, I wish they'd come to Detroit for the first time since like 1998. It was mainly the guy who hurled the "you guys suck!" that made my mouth agape.

Thanks for once again blowing off the PNW. Yes, I grew up on the East Coast and it's winters and summers suck, it's flat, and the people, naw, no thanks. There are tons of people like me that moved to the Western states over the last 20>30 years, so why no love Phil. Is it truly just about the money. At least Bob brings Ratdog through yearly, and yes I buy as many tickets to those shows to show my support. So Phil why is it that you hate the PNW so much? Starving Heads want to know.

NY showed their support by selling out shows in the middle of the winter. Now we get some nice outside shows in some nice weather. Phil in 08 & Bob in 09 played Highland Bowl in Rochester and loved it...perfect place to open the summer leg. I'm sure more dates will come so be patient and show some love.

For all of you kevetching about how they are not touring here or there, has anyone taken a second to look at the low ticket prices being offered on this tour?? Just a year ago everyone was bitching about $100 seats, and this year the ticket prices are all under $50! Yes, we are missing having the entire original core here without Bill and Mickey, but the fact is that they are playing these shows at a fairly low price regarding ticket prices these days. Back in '95 Seattle, I paid $35 plus service fees; in 2010, tickets are going for $39 plus service fees. I think the guys deserve a big thank you for keeping these tickets affordable. As far as the West coast goes, we do get a show here in Portland in a little over a week, and for those of you in California and elsewhere, you know they'll be adding more. Just give it time. Peace y'all!

Anyone know how long it takes to get confirmation from GDTS TOO about mail order with the credit card form? Last time I did mail order was Fall 1995. Why do they do mail order, pre-sale and outlet sales all within a week? It seems you don't get confirmation until after the pre-sale and outlet sales are over?

right on glen,last spring it was sick how much i heard about ticket prices.the boys must have heard it cause the low prices now are no accident.I am sure this is a third or maybe half of the complete tour.there will be ,I believe,many more dates announced.60 bucks less per ticket pays a lot of travel expenses!!!

I absolutely loved the Grateful Dead and they indeed changed my life, but.... Why do people wanna see/hear Phil who can't carry a single note? A lame Jerry Garcia imitator from a local Chicago band? Bob Weir is the only one with the chops. Hearing a bunch of late 60 year olds singing Sugar Mag gives me a bad taste. We can't relive the past, but we can appreciate it. Bob should go back to Ratdog and play some orginal stuff. Evening Moods was amazing. Phil should just play bass. And John Kadelick should learn that music isn't about imitation, its about exploration. Sorry to sound like a troll, but this FURTHUR tour is just a huge letdown that I'm sure even Garcia would despise.

Man sour grapes do you have it wrong... the spirit of this music lives on. Have you even seen furthur yet? I almost feel sorry for you, a sad cynical man who can't find joy in this beautiful music. Hopefully you can get the taste of sour grapes out of your mouth and you can get out and enjoy this celebration of dead music.

good music is ALWAYS good music, no matter who plays it, or when, or how old the players are. when jerry passed, alot of us were hurt for a long, long time. i for one, do not mind trying to soothe the ache...it will always be there, like fuckin' arthritis, but we can make it easier to live with....chill!! when you get confused, listen to the music play...........remember?

A solution to our "touring" problems. How about more "live" broadcasting. Whether it is through Sirius or a Pay Per View event. Its not like people are not going to show up at the shows, because its on radio/TV. If you play, we will be there and tape it. Thanks to all who make these tours happen.....and Thanks for playin Phil and Bob

What an appropriate moniker. However, you are so wrong. Believe me, I realize this is not the Grateful Dead. Indeed, in my eyes they were not "my" Dead after about 1983. I am not trying to relive the past; just trying to enjoy myself and hear my favorite tunes live, even without Jerry. You certainly have the right not to see Further and stick to your memories. That is cool. But I choose to see what the boys are up to. Trust me, I listen to as much classic Dead as you do and I know Kadelick is no Jerry. But even Jerry wasn't Jerry for over ten years. I went to see them at Radio City. It was a fine show. Solid. Phil is still an amazing player, worth the price of admission, alone. Also, they were playing the songs we all love, and it was cool that a whole bunch of people who never got to see the Fat Man could still get to see the songs done live. It may not be to your taste, but have no right to disparage those who choose to go and enjoy themselves. Their choice is just as valid as yours. So keep listening to those tapes and before you know it Bobby and Phil will no longer be touring, and all we will have are the tapes. Think about it. Peace.

We don't know what's up...but we do know that the ticket office staff is small, and since orders are handled by post-mark date, smaller batches of envelopes with a particular date would be easier to deal with. I'll bet the folks at the small Stinson Beach post office will be glad not to be innundated with huge amounts of envelopes at one time, too. Logistics, people, logistics. As for the utterly superflous comments by the haters of the music as it is now: NEWS FLASH: Music is an art form, it's participation voluntary. If you don't like it, what are you doing here? Move on and quit wasting both your time and ours.

That's the kind thing to say.

What you said Rosa was very refreshing thank you!! "Here's my half a dollar if you dare .. double twist when you hit the air. Look at Julie down below .. the levee doing the dopaso"
