Just got a text from an old friend whom I gave my tickets to. (health problem got in my way), all it said was "Wow"...I'd say it was a good first set :>)

I hope that works for other folk. I followed the same pathway again to make sure it was a good URL, but the search didn't give the same results. Let me know.
thanks for the update, sailorsaint

Sugar mag sunshine day dream, doner rap
E: revolution, satisfaction
Colors was tight and the whole 2nd set finished strong from where they left off in 1st set.
Place was much more intimate only being half to 3/4 sold.
Sataisfaction summed it up! If you were not satisfied after these three, you just weren't trying!
Phil looked a litte thin, but was again strong in the mix and wore a jacket most of teh show, a little drafty what with the empty space.
I have got to give strong kudos to Jeff, for MVP; whenever the temp might start to drag, he kicked in some top notch up tempo keys and aways we would go !
As sexy and as solid as the scarlet>fire>estimated>eyes.... It was the wheel>NFA>Wharfrat>sugar Mags for me... the playing was tremendously solid... Awesome double encore.
wow, pretty much classic 80's typical set
we would bitch, and now miss SO much.
Check it out:

Supposedly a Valentine's day gift from Phil to Jill:
From another Web site:
"Isn't that '82 Warfield show the one that Phil brought Jill to for their first date? "
'It's in his autobiography.
That's a nice Valentines day present.'
Mini-review because I’m pretty wiped after having to get up after 4 hours sleep to get to work….
Went to the show looking for tickets and should have bought them on craigslist. Tix still on sale at the venue and I went with only 50 bucks….found one right at showtime, went to the door and was turned away as “not valid” but was with the guy who sold it to me and he was pissed, had to go to the ticket window and were given no explanation, just new tickets.
Missed Minglewood and I asked three people around me what they opened with and no one had any clue….
First set was sweet and really started cooking with the last 3 songs. Floor was not too crowded and plenty of space and good sightlines….On the road again was pretty sweet too.
Set 2: scarlet>fire>estimated>eyes high energy and awesome, matter of fact the whole second set was this way. Wharf Rat: JK has the vocal and guitar chops down.
Sugar Mags/Revolution->Satisfaction major crowd participation and fun!
I walked away thinking Furthur is the real fucking deal, very tight, almost flawless last night, best 50 bucks I’ve spent all year.
Last night Phil said "Colorado brings a weird vibe - thanks for that. It's always great to get something you can't get anywhere else". Last night had that old school-day 3-Sunday vibe where the band knows that everybody is there ready to have their minds melted. I think they delivered. I was on the floor, center, approximately 10-15 rows back (GA floor) and we were all dancing without hardly touching each other. It was the closest I've felt to the early eighties shows (and I was at plenty). I have not done a three night stand in years but I'm so glad I went last night. Fri was a little tentative but got better as the show went on, Sat was the Furthur rocking crowd pleaser, and Sunday was Good Ole Grateful Dead - at least in my mind. I also just think that the 1st Bank venue does a great job of hosting a party. Three nights in a row without any problems. Very short lines to get in, $5 microbrews at the bar, parked for free and no cluster*&^% getting out. I'm not going to comment on the music since you can listen and judge for yourself but no complaints here. We had fun. Your experience may vary. Mine was 10/10.
A pretty generic show. Well played though.
Headlight-glad you enjoyed the show. Did you find some nice people to give my tickets to?
The entire run was amazing. If you don't like Furthur by now, it may not the band that has changed, but it is most likely you.
I am finally getting around to writing this review after 12 hours of sleep and a day at work. From top to bottom this show was stellar.
The first set would of made it worth my time, and money, but the second set was explosive.
They brought it all, all three nights. Thanks. It is going to be a great summer.
Large photo, enjoy!
Awesome picture...looks like a fun three nights
Great picture Derek, thanks for posting. Did you take it?
the last night of an ecstatic run of furthur shows. everyone was in the mood this night band and audience and we had plenty of room to get down. minglewood opener was not what i expected but was played really well and bob had good vocals, also gave us that san francisco verse at the end. sugaree to follow was very sweet sounding with absolutely mind numbing work from jk and jeff. these two have found their groove amongst these musicians on the stage and it is shining more than ever tonight. bob does a good job with the vocals on this one as well in my opinion. last september i was not thrilled with the version in redmond WA. i distinctly remember at this point saying to a friend phil or john must take the next tune because bob just did two...well i was wrong, and i didnt care that i was wrong because on the road again was a good version. PRIDE OF CUCAMONGA was fantastic john had the perfect southern twangy pedal steel sound goin on it and the jam in the middle seamed flawlessly. is john going to sing yet? nooope. CC rider was a treat i think vocally the song was done really well, i was DIGGIN the backup vocals..tennessee jed and bertha were both fun versions had people smilin and dancin, and a ROCKIN man smart woman smarter to close the set. jk was using midi and lots of other pedals and effects and seemed to have a better grasp of his equipment while playing with phil and bob (im sure its not easy). second set opens with colors of the rain, a shorter version than most others but very poignant. then we are just massacred with a remaining second set that just rocked. scarlet>fire>estimated>eyes was a meaty sandwich i had been calling the entire weekend and shocked/grateful it came in such force, although do not let this undermine the remainder of the set. that part of it was just a personal gift isuppose y ou could say, im really not sure. the wheel was one im surprised did not appear in the first two nights but segued into a great not fade away, had me thinking it was a little early for it but they kept going with a soulful wharf rat and rockin sugar mag. the encores would not have been my guess or my choices but were fun. i think this show showcased the talent of jeff chimenti. he is an absolute monster on the grand piano and B3 and he is given complete freedom to show us on this night.
this run was a very stellar three nights, with great consistency we do not always see. it is obvious they practiced in between NYE and these shows. i can only imagine what they will bring to the table here in the east in a couple weeks..see ya'll there
