Hot on the heels of two blistering shows at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, we brought you the news yesterday via the headiest cable news channel out there, CN-Brah-C, that Phil Lesh & Bob Weir’s latest project Furthur – and I’d even argue their most successful post-Dead band – would be headed out for a string of summer dates, offering up tickets at around 40 bucks a piece.
Well, as promised Phil, Bob and the 4-Js have revealed a handful of dates up and down the East Coast – in addition to their previously announced festival appearances – that includes a two-night stand at the recently renamed MCU Park in Coney Island. Fans will have a number of ticket purchasing options available as traditional mail order begins tomorrow, while a pre-sale will begin on March 1 and finally the regular on-sale will commence on March 5.
If Wednesday night’s show at RCMH was any indication of just how locked in this band is you’re going to want to snatch up tickets ASAP as they tore through a night of Dead classic’s highlighted by a sublime Althea and the underrated American Beauty chestnut ‘Till The Morning Comes in the first set and monster second set that closed out with the segue induced run of St. Stephen -> Born Cross Eyed -> Eyes -> Morning Dew -> Playin’ (Reprise).
