Furthur: 8-Night Run at The Capitol Theatre

FURTHUR, FEATURING PHIL LESH AND BOB WEIR,
CONFIRMS 8-NIGHT RUN AT THE CAPITOL THEATRE

Following a sold-out run by Phil Lesh & Friends and an acclaimed solo performance by Bob Weir opening week, The Capitol Theatre will host both Grateful Dead icons onstage together when Furthur hits the newly- reopened rock palace this spring. The band will play an eight-night stand April 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, and 25. In addition to Lesh and Weir, Furthur features Jeff Chimenti, John Kadlecik, Joe Russo, Sunshine Becker, and Jeff Pehrson. Tickets go on sale today at noon via http://www.thecapitoltheatre.com and http://www.furthur.net.

"It's no secret that the Grateful Dead loved playing at the Capitol Theatre," says the band's archivist David Lemieux. They performed there 18 times in 1970-71 alone. In a recent interview with CBS This Morning, Bob Weir said The Cap "was always at the top of the list because we knew we were going to have a good night. That's what we lived for." Jerry Garcia once said, "There's only two theaters...that are set up pretty groovy all around for music - The Fillmore East and the Capitol Theatre."
