Fare Thee Well co-organizer Peter Shapiro was David Gans and Gary Lambert’s guest on yesterday’s Tales From The Golden Road radio program on SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead channel. Kline called into the show and asked Shapiro about the possibility of more Fare Thee Well. Shapiro didn’t give a definitive answer one way or the other, but did say, “There will be more ‘stuff,’ there will be more stuff of scale like Trixie said.” The impresario was referring to Garcia’s remarks to Glide Magazine in which Jerry’s daughter said, “There will be more events. There’s no one looking at all of those 70,000 people and thinking it’s not going to happen again. In some shape or form obviously – with that exact lineup I highly doubt – but we’ll see. There’s definitely going to be more large events.”
Peter went on to say, “it’s very rare that something gets to end like that” about the way Fare Thee Well concluded in Chicago. “That energy, that was not normal. It was unlike anyone has ever seen. There’s two sides to this, there’s the pull of ‘we want more of that’ but there’s also everything went right and I know enough to know that doesn’t always happen.”
Here’s the chat between Shapiro, Gans, Lambert and Kline:
