Thinking of going to see Furthur in LA next month but I'm having sticker shock on the $60 tickets. I'm a fan of the dead (listen to stuff from the archives, go frequently to local cover/tribute bands) so I feel like its probably worth it, but the price combined with the fact that its assigned seating (used to dancing it up at GA tribute shows) makes me hesitate. Anybody with experience seeing Furthur or with knowledge of the venue have thoughts on what I should expect?

Thanks for the feedback on Furthur, I got tickets and will be seeing them on the last scheduled 2013 date! I'll post my impressions in a couple of weeks.

Okay, at the encouragement of some of you deadgoons I did end up going to see Furthur at the Greek on the last night of the tour. What a fantastic experience! The crowd was really into it (and full of serious deadheads of all ages) and the parking lot scene was very interesting. Everyone was dancing like their lives depended on it and the number of people who were in enhanced states of consciousness seemed like it would rival a music festival. The music was very satisfying, and to finally be at a dead family event in person was a more sentimental experience than I had expected.

I've listened to the archive tapes a couple of times now, but does anyone know if it's worth picking up the multi-track recording from Furthur's website?

I really enjoyed the St. Stephen.

I'd get on the bus for a reunion.

Anyone else trying for mail order tickets?

I don't quite understand how this works. You decorate a lucky envelope and stuff in a money order? Can you request for all 3 days?

Thanos, breaker of tables and quintessential deadhead. Is that your envelope art or something groovier?

Saturday's ticketing is going to be a real 'more butts than seats poo poo show' situation. How robust are ticketmaster's servers?

The second release of tickets for Chicago today went just about as well as the first for me.

I thought nights 2 and 3 of the Chicago run were pretty fantastic, all things considered.
