Furthur Add Ninth Capitol Theatre Show

Furthur have added another show to their upcoming run at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The band will now play a ninth gig at the venue on April 15. Tickets to the newly announced show are currently on sale. As previously reported, Furthur announced an eight-night run at the Capitol Theatre last month.

The Grateful Dead have a long history with the Westchester County theater: In the early 1970s, the Dead played 18 shows there during a span of only 11 months. Bob Weir performed at the venue’s reopening HeadCount celebration this past September and Phil Lesh & Friends played a multi-night run at the Cap in November. Jerry Garcia once called the theater one of his top venues.

This spring’s Furthur shows also mark the 20th anniversary of Cap proprietor—and Relix and Jambands.com publisher—Peter Shapiro’s first Grateful Dead shows.

Nothing like paying $100 for a really awesome cover band….. cover band

@big ron…..who’s the “really awesome cover band” you’re speaking of? Clearly not Furthur. They’re barely tolerable! They have no idea how to play Grateful Dead music…it’s all scripted by Phil when they’re on stage.

Huh? Why hate? You obviously have warped your mind with too much of something and too little musical enjoyment. Why would you post hatred about people who started this type of music and who continue to enjoy playing? Why don’t you enlighten us with who you think “rocks”?
