I am disgusted that Further hasnt come to play in my backyard here in Corvallis, Oregon. They should also make me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Can you believe I saw Ratdog play at a bowling alley in Omaha, Nebraska 3/24/02? I think the Furthur guitarist is from Omaha/ Council Bluffs so maybe they'll come back? Not holding my breath!!! DSO used to come through Omaha and play some great venues as well. God willing I'll see you guys somewhere soon!!!
to have some time with the boys.
We in the midwest don't have alot of shows but we have had some and I regret that 10Klakefest isn't hosting a Furthur in the northern plains.
Maybe you guys down under would actually be able to get a ticket without them all being scooped up by ticket brokers who could then gouge by doubling or tripling the price.
Here is hoping that you guys get some love from the band.
The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
you guys have it the worst, at least we have a chance, my sincere apologies.
... to all the poor suffering Heads on the west coast, Pacific north-west, wherever ... hurting coz this particular tour is passing them by.
Kenny, on behalf of my fellow Melbourne GD brethren, DeadHeads of Australia/New Zealand, indeed GD fans of all persuasions wherever they may be in the Southern Hemisphere - where not a single GD-family band has played a single gig in more than four decades.
My heart truly bleeds for you ...
Best wishes to our friends in CO tonight - hope you have a great concert, great time!
whatever, our summer in the NW is only 30 minutes long anyway, and i 'spose Washington will jus' hafta suffer.
All summer tours are in the east as they should be. Oregon and Northern Cali will get some added on. No worries west coast.
and they could do the same thing in the bay area, with a multitude of venues right there, and a short run up north (tacoma, portland.....seattle)...i dunno much about the midwest except there is a large following.
Since1965, perhaps you need to re-read your original post to see why some folks may have been offended. It wasn't a "light-hearted jab," but a dig at Heads across the country who are not lucky enough to be on the east coast. You are lucky enough to have 6 shows within 6 hours of your house while the rest of the nation's Heads get nothing this summer (at least as announced).
I think that if you reworded it to be something along the lines of how lucky the east is to have so many shows instead of a condescending remark about how "it's where it's happening" and "it's about people and music," with the implicit suggestion that the other parts of the country don't have what the band is looking for, folks may not be offended. Personally, I am not offended, I know hot air when I see it, but if you think there aren't plenty of Heads across the rest of the country, you are mistaken and need to go to a few shows in the Midwest and out West. I don't think they have had trouble selling tickets.
I just saw Furthur in Chicago (traveled from Michigan and I am certain there were Heads from across the midwest there to rival your list of states you mentioned) and believe me, the vibe was great, the band rocked, the crowd danced and everyone had a great time.
The one argument that makes sense to me is the traveling one-- they can hit many nice venues without a lot of travel in a short period of time. That makes sense.
