Interesting. What is the connection between ABbey ROad and Furthur? So we're going to get the rest of Abbey Road over the next several nights?
Crazy first set list. How do they follow that in Set 2?!?
As Charlie would say...Is this set going to be WINNING?? n;-)
Is there a stream tonite?
Thanks Z Man for the stream...
Zman Pigpen left us on 3/8/73 at age 27
Here is the stream from Zman...if it goes out just wait a few it will come back..
great still shot be i guess that eats up some bandwith also
Poor John K. Left a perfectly good GD cover band for a Beatles cover band. Guess he couldn't have predicted it.
All kidding aside, I really dug the Harrison Any Road from a little while back.
Hey, any body remember the Duprees Diamond News handouts at shows from the mid '80's, before it became a real magazine? They would have a little "last time played" section; e.g., "last Darkstar, 7/13/84" etc. I distinctly remember something like, "last Unbroken Chain - never played," "last Octopus's Garden - never played." Look's like it won't be long now.
Thought I figured it out myself, but I see it was mentioned above. As far as playing it in order, THEY'RE PLAYING FRIGGIN' ABBEY ROAD...IN ORDER!!!!
3/8 Oh!. Darling
3/10 Octopus's Garden
3/11 I Want You
3/12 Here Comes the Sun
3/13 Because (out of space I hope)
3/15 If they play the whole side 2 suite together I'm going to come in my pants! WHO'S GOT MY TUESDAY BEST BUY?!?!?!?!
Furthur – Setlist March 6, 2011 Orpheum Theatre Boston, Massachusetts SetII
Furthur – Setlist March 6, 2011 Orpheum Theatre Boston, Massachusetts SetII
Time was recorded at the Abbey Road studios for The Dark Side of the Moon album in 1973 (the year Pigpen left us) by Alan Parsons who also produced The Beatles' Abbey Road album.
Per the following website -- http://fullmooncalendar.net/ -- the moon is dark until 3.8.11 (anniversary of Pigpen's death).
Nice cosmic theme interwoven (ok, more blatantly than normal I mean) ---> So far, we have heard songs re the sun, dark stars, the moon (Time), rainbows (the eleven)....Cosmic Charlie to end a set or encore?????
this china doll is really sweet
Set 1: Here Comes Sunshine

Darkstar 1st verse
Touch is my bet.
bid you goodnight.
We bid u good night
No double wish they did thats no encore sry PHIL
not a big fan of how second set looks on paper
joined in on the stream late.
Oh, Yeah. 3/15 is Phil's birthday too. What a present.
listened to stream live of Set II. It was great.
Who said they were not a phan of how the second set looks on paper??!! They need a piece of paper...with Drs. orders to get their head examined!! One of the best I've EVER seen. That's almost 40 years worth. Can't say much else but spectacular. Bobby had a small Alzheimers like moment (or two) during Sugaree but what the heck. It was really great seeing this whole show. 3 verses of Viola Lee, a Stephen, Star and Time wow. Earlier today I blogged that I wanted to hear some "S" tunes in the second set. I got two outa my three, not a bad night, missed Stella but Time was excellent. See ya down the road!!
OUT FUCKING STANDING !!!
Throughly enjoyed each night. Best 3 night run in a long time. They fucking rocked !!!
Didn't hear the stream. Not my dream set list, but that's ok, but I gotta say, when I've been witness to it, I enjoy seeing bobby sing sugaree.
wish they never did Time, EVER. And splitting up St and 11 with it??? Blasphemy, I tell ya. BLASPHEMY.
can't finish a show better than with And We Bid You. Can't. Just cannot outdo that.
Time is Timeless!!
>>>>>wish they never did Time, EVER.<<<<
One man gathers what another man spills ... could be one of the better "new covers" I've heard post Jerry. I especially liked the first rendition at the NYE '09/10 ... it was a treat to hear & Jay added tons on percussion. It's only gotten better over time ... at least as far as improving all segments of the song.
I wish Jerry and Pigpen were still here to decide what cover songs should (and shouldn't) be played.
I'm sorry, but I don't go to Furthur shows to hear Beatles songs. I'd rather hear them bring a song like "Mission In The Rain" out of the woodwork for the loyal fans.

If you are trying to take nit-picking to a new level, you have succeeded!
Whittman Mayo Brady - you are quite the witty communicator. I was merely expressing my opinion, which I even apologized for in the same sentence. No need for clever insults. Save those for the people who don't care enough to be in this discussion board.
As For "TIME" it was David Jon Gilmour, CBE (born 6 March 1946) Birthday yesterday...
Franklin's child, you are quite the statman. Very good and for the record I think they played it very well at that!! So tomorrow will clinch the effort to do Abbey Road in order when they do Oh Darling. Wonder what they are going to do with the Flip side? Hey who knows, maybe next Halloween we'll get "dueling" album covers by Phish and Phurthur!!
Ahhhhhh, very interesting! That explains why I also heard "Time" exactly one year ago last night (at the MONSTEROUS 3-6-10 Broomfield show.)
That's for the info Franklin's Child.
VERY good show last night.
"I'm sorry, but I don't go to Furthur shows to hear Beatles songs."
or Dylan covers. Leave the 80s and 90s in the 80s and 90s. Just not interested. Never was interested in those particular covers. Play the exact same Primal Dead setlist night after night, but leave that stuff alone.
Yes, last year on 3/6 they did a Time/Breathe combo sandwiched in between a Dark star and Death Don't have no Mercy. Check it out on Archive.org and search Live Music Archive for Furthur shows and you will see it. Listening right now!!
Sorry it was sandwiched in betwwen New Potatoe and Death but another show had it in between Dark Star and then a Dew after. I believe it was the Rochester show.
Had a great time in Boston. I don't know if it was me or what but I thought the sound quality improved significantly for the second set. For me it was the best sound quality of the 3 shows. I think that room is difficult for sound. I thought the playing was stellar. Phil is playing the best of his life...just smashing it over and over again...I've never enjoyed Phil so much and I started seeing the Dead in '72. Bob is also tearing it up with incredible rhythm rock guitar. These guys are really doing it and I'll see them every chance I get.
David, I agree with your comment about the sound quality improving in the second set. I was sitting directly in back of the soundboard and the volume gradually increased almost all night. Seems like they really cranked it up for St. Stephen.
Sound was very good and I've been seeing all kinds of shows at the Orpheum for @35 years now. The best spot for sound there is the Mezz. I'm a glutton for a front row Mezz seat It's so cool!! But there used to be days when they would not even let you stand up in the Mezz. Now I guess it's structurally sound?! The old days when Jerry used to play there they wouldn't let anyone dance in the Mezz. Jerry used to play an early show and then a late show. I was there for the early show once and someone was wasted and fell off the Mezz. They ended the show at that point so I think it was one of the shortest shows ever. Any of you super computer stat guys confirm this?? Well enough about Boston-can't wait for Radio City!!
Way too exhausted/sleep deprived to compose a thorough review. Needless to say, the 1st set was Lawrence Olivier-in-Lawrence-of-Arabia-esque in it's "Take No Prisoners" attitude. I mean, fuckin' WOW!!!!!! 2nd set right up there too - very jammy/spacey. I LIKE the Nobody Girl song - but I can see New Englanders being tired of it since it's been played in the same area 3 times (New Hampshire last Feb, then Worcester in Nov, then last night). They need a setlist guy like Panic has who analyzes what songs they play by geographic area (sorta like 2000 thru 2005 when Ratdog played Stuff - Come Together in CT/ Western MA about 11 times in a row). But anyway, one of the most interesting moments was during the final Viola Lee buildup, Bobby interrupts it with a "two fingers" gesture, the jam falls apart, it sounds like they are going into another song (I thought maybe they hadn't finished Passenger?), then they build back up to the Viola ending. Phil seemed very disturbed by all of this, and when the set ended, the lights were on, and everyone else had left the stage, he stayed on, literally lecturing Bobby about what he wanted to do, then, with his bass still on, played a clear "The Seven" riff, showing it to Bobby. This was very amusing to watch. Oh, and in the Dark Star there was a Miles Davis So What tease (going into 1st verse), then after the 2nd verse Bobby teased Sage and Spirit a little.
Yes I did catch the "schooling of Bobby" at the end of the first set and thought the same thing as you. I did not catch the Sage and Spirit riff. I'll have to check that out. Yes, all in all the show last night was just what I was waiting for. Loved it. Hey, what is the story with the repeated tributes to David Gilmore's Birthday?? I thought it sounded better than the one a year ago in Colorado but does Gilmore even know about these tributes? Just curious.
So this is the first time I have seen Furthur since 2009, and I was pleasantly surprised at the improvement in both consistency and flow. John Kadlecik seems to be much more a full-fledged member of the band rather than the new guy. He actually sounds less overtly Jerry like to me and has definitely started taking the music in his own direction.
I was psyched to see John play slide on Passenger – which was the first song to really cook. After an Alligator and psychedelic Viola Lee Blues sandwich in the first set, I fully expected a Dark Star was coming in the second set, but I would have to wait. St. Stephen started the proceedings with a jolt and they didn’t let up for the next hour, getting trippy through the Eleven, Time and eventually a fine Dark Star. China Doll was just sung beautifully and I am always a sucker for a good Ryan Adams song.
The Dark Star, compared to 2009 was very improved, and the covers - Time and Maxwell’s Silver hammer were both pulled off impressively. On Time, in particular, Joe Russo played with more abandon than previously, freed of having to coordinate the time-keeping with another drummer. And the two back up singers add immeasurably to the vocals – that made the Bid You Goodnight encore a real treat.
My only minor complaint is that I never got my big second set closing rocker. Sugar-Ree->Goin’ Down the Road is not exactly a barn burning way to close a show. But seeing THAT show in the Orpheum with a SEVENTY-year old Phil was a pisser. The closest I’ll ever get to Halcyon days of yore….
After hearing OH! DARLING last night, I take back my negative comment about Furthur playing Beatles songs. They rocked it!
