Set 1 - dig the opening jam to Jack Straw, and that ballsy Helf-Step vocal chorus they repeat FOUR times before the Rio Grand-io. I tell you, they know what they're doing with this - they're unafraid, taking real chances with some of the music's sound. Check out how they enunciate and layer the vocals around the 'round and round' part of Dear Prudence. And how 'bout that insanely fire-driven Alligator?!?
Set 2 - a long, quite diverse jam that is akin more to a Phil & Friends exercise than anything else - John K. is given a lot of room here to explore, and do lend this guy your ear - here he's earned it.
It's up to you, whether or not you like what Furthur is trying to accomplish. I myself love that this band gives me something challenging to digest and think about. I, too, was initally put off by some of the vocal liberties they *seemed* to be taking with Half-Step, Shakedown, and Good Lovin', but I also believe this band knows fully what it's doing. To experiment at this stage of the game takes some serious balls. Bravo, boys.
Subject: hot stuff!
and cant wait for spring dates. Sad to say but I think they are more inspired now than they were from 92-95 even more. Its amazing how this music almost "has" to be played. It never gets old. Im never getting
off this bus! When the band is running on all cylinders they smoke anyone! Nobody jams like this band! Nobody. Period! GBTGD DEADICATED FOR LIFE! :)
Subject: Great sound this tour!!!
Subject: The Beat Goes On.......
Now, I am a bit troubled by seeing reviews that dis John because he doesn't sound like Jerry. C'mon, nobody, never,ever, will be able to replace Jerry. That is a given.
Now with that being said, the beat goes on, for this is life and I would rather have Bobby, Phil, and John, etc., play than not play at all.
Without music, life would be a mistake and there would be this empty void in my heart. So, I think it is high time we all open our minds further and let's go to places musically that is beyond our wildest dreams.

I'm with Mr. Skjellyfetti below; I'm a weeper, too. The Grateful Dead were the soundtrack, the symbol, and the inspiration of so much that we all went through, and their music encompasses so many roots from all different influences. They had it all, and it is so heavy that it is now going FURTHUR!
I'm don't get the criticism of Bob's singing. He's not doing it just like he used to, but I give him credit for evolving. Some may not care for it, but an artist has to change to grow.
I don't think we hear much criticism of John K as this tour goes on. His skill and spirit are beyond reproach. In truth, he does lack a bit of that subtlety and lightness of touch that we heard from Jerry, but that's OK; he isn't him. Garcia was one of the greatest artists and human beings ever, so all we can do is carry on as best we can.
One final comment - Jeff, the keyboard player is just incredible. He's all the keymen the Dead ever had and more. The guy is a monster and so much fun to listen. He really drives the music.
Subject: great list
Highlights: Tom Thumb, Dear Prudence, 2nd set, and unplanned double encore.
Subject: One Hot Night!

Subject: Furthur 2010-11-12 - WOW
That said - GREAT show! The boys were smokin. First set was short, but really sweet. And yes I am a "don't let Bobby sing" guy too, but this show was still great. Just listen to them all listening! They were "in it" all second set. The second set just smoked, and was an incredible experience. I thought night two back in March at the Auditorium was good - WOW, this one was up there too. Thanks!
Subject: THANK YOU!!!
Another really nice show. Didn't make it last night but going tonite & I can't wait to hear those first chords and all the troubles of the world seem to float away.
Thanks for keeping the music alive!!!
