The club performance tonight by Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Jeff Chimenti, Jay Lane, John Kadlecik and Joe Russo did not solely function as a warm-up for Furthur’s December dates. The show at 19 Broadway in Fairfax, CA also helped call attention to the band’s extended late winter tour. Furthur is confirmed to perform from February 5 through March 8, crossing the country to appear in a variety of large theaters and arenas. Highlights include a two night stand at Radio City Music Hall (February 23 and 24), a Valentine’s Day show at Cornell University’s Barton Hall, site of the Grateful Dead’s celebrated 5/8/77 performance, a stop at Virginia’s Hampton Coliseum (February 12) and two dates at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago (March 2 and 3). Presales for the tour will begin on November 30.
