Furthur Winter Tour Preview!

This Friday, February 5th, Furthur kicks off a lengthy winter tour in Miami, FL at the Bayfront Park Amphitheatre. The tour runs from Feb. 5th to Mar. 12th (see dates below) and treks all the way up the east coast before making a few stops in Chicago, Oregon, and a final blow-out 70th Birthday celebration for Phil Lesh in San Fran. The band’s recent ‘public rehearsals’ included many first takes on not-yet-Furthur’d dead tunes and covers including On the Road Again (Traditional), Get Back (Beatles), Hurricane (Dylan), No More Do I (Phil n Friends), Maggie’s Farm (Dylan), and  the pigpen classic I’m A King Bee (Blues Traditional).

In case you didn’t catch these guys in 2009, here’s some of the best jams from the Oakland shows and December run:

TRACK 1: Bertha (9/19/09)
TRACK 2: The Eleven (12/09/09)
TRACK 3: Shakedown Street (12/11/09)
TRACK 4: Passenger (12/12/09)
