What you said, Marye!

Whoever cooked up that show deserves a lot of credit! It will be a fun, festive atmosphere. Hopefully a fine, fine summer evening and also hope they come up with a good poster for the show like the one of Phil & Bob in the baseball uniforms.

Thursday evening in the park... A***, incense & balloons... People laughing everywhere.

Yeah, I know. It ain't that way anymore. Well, we can still remember the good old days and be ever grateful for what we have right now....

that does

sound like a great venue for a fun day.

It really is pretty remarkable, all things considered, how many generations are getting at least SOME personal experience of this thing, and their own version of it too. It's a good thing.

Errr-uhhhmmm

That would be July 5th in Pawtucket, Fluffanutter. I think you got too much hair tucked up under that Pawsox cap, dude!

We're on tour this summer. Will be there with bells on!!

April in Boston!

Looking forward to the shows at the Wang Center less than a month away. Bringing 2 Furthur newbies with us who should really enjoy themselves. Expecting a fun time!

Love the venues for 2012

Yeah, they are definitely selecting the venues with more care. A lot of these shows will now sell out. One that won't will be a triple A minor league ballpark called McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, RI on July 6th. For each full admission payed one child twelve or under will be allowed to accompany that person in. That still won't make it hard to get tickets. This should be a great show from a fabled venue in a blue-collar working-class city just North of Providence.

See ya' on the diamond!

furthur & furthur & furthur

As I'd imagined, they are playing smaller halls in the Spring. Phil's b'day in SF every March, I guess it goes and goes till... Sure seems like a deal with the devil, though.

I guess some people call it dedication.

Further reflections on the last Furthur Tour

The boys are plying great with some intensity and a really incredible work ethic. They usually played 2:45 to three hours of music. Everybody needs to know that the setlists are pre-cooked by Phil's wife and Bob's manager. I don't mind. You can tell when they are hitting all on all cylinders.

The crowds just aren't there anymore. If they want to keep playing, it's going to be in smaller and smaller halls except for a few select first-rate venues such as Red Rocks. I personally like it better that way. It's more laid back.

The crowds are younger in the East, Older in the West. The good vibes are back and I wish everybody has a ball for the upcoming Christmas run in SF. All another year older and wondering how much longer it can last.

That last tour I did from Eugene to Las Vegas (skipped Cali) was awesome. Met some great people and had a high time or two. I never minded the driving considering I had my entire CD collection with me. Going across the Rockies at Lake Couer D'lene, Idaho was just the peak of the trip, with the mountains perfectly reflecting in the placid Lake.

The best show was in Missoula where Barlow has a studio and Bob often went to work out new tunes. When Bob and Phil really want to throw down and make a statement, they can still do it. The sure did it that night in Missoula.

WilI I ever do another tour? No.... But I'm sure glad I had the blue skies and high vibes following me for the last one.
