After checking Furthur's web page this morning and seeing that the summer tour will be going as scheduled I bought my ticket for Meadowbrook Amphitheatre.
If you are going to this show you should know that they've changed policies and that it costs money to park:
$5 to choke in the dust on the pavement
$20 for premium parking on the grass
$40 for VIP parking
I opted for lawn seats and premium parking. The only good thing I can say is that it only costs $1.50 for total service charges that get you hard tickets mailed to you.
Once again hoping that Bob has a good rest during his time off and is back on his game this summer!
In my opinion, this night was so special, great setlist. Kadlecik was kicking on his new kustom guitar,a real beauty. His vocals on "Reuben and Cherise" were out of this world. "Built to last" done real well. Kadlecik was kind of taking over this night when Bobby was kind of in his own world. I think I had better get a CD of this Show. How good are the CDs done by the company that records them and sells them on the Furthur website?

I must concur all folks out there that haven't seen Furthur in the past three years are missin' out. I've seen nearly every new incarnation - The Dead - Phil & Friends- RatDog... and to my mind this is the one that gets me to the closest I've been to what Jerry once described as "Little Golden yummies that last for moments on end" or something to that affect. It's that thing that comity and conne ction,,The spiritual Big O that kept us all addicted to the Show! I'm jonesin' just thinking about it.We here in the South feel a bit gipped at times. Hope to see some FL. and Atl. shows on the summer sched. Till then I'll have to be content to see Warren and the Bros at Wanee next month. Also NMA, Galactic...
is there anyone out there that can tell me why Canada is ignored year after year by these guys. As a head that can't tour, i'm cryin up here. A couple shows in T.O once in a while wouldn't kill anybody would it?
This was different than playing in front of 10k varied people. So many thanks to the band for letting us all in on it!
What a wonderful run of shows at the Sweetwater! The folks in the band played and sang their hearts out. It was an absolute treat to see and hear them play in such an intimate and friendly venue. Leaving the building after the show, I experienced the same sense of satisfaction and wonder that I used to feel exiting Winterland, Kaiser, the Greek, etc. I am truly grateful that Phil and Bobby have assembled the talent to continue bringing us all the sweet music that has been branded onto our DNA for decades now.
To the Furthur naysayers out there: you're missing something special, because the MUSIC never stopped.
THANK YOU ALL!
For all the all of it all.
It's been so endearing for me,
I didn't dance much this time around
but laying on the speakers made
for permanent contentment.
That's plenty for me.
May lovingkindness and good fortune be
ever returning to you, all, xo. What goes
around does come around, so enjoy it.
Back of my memory is still troubling me but
this has helped me so much and the miracles
of tomorrow are at my door...today.
I love you, ALL, xo.
