To All Of Our Fans Who’ve Purchased Tickets To Our July 5 Show in Shelburne, VT:
After days of meetings to address and alleviate last minute concerns being expressed by State and Local Authorities, Furthur is very disappointed to learn that today, the local authorities, citing an inability to deal with an expected influx of ticketless fans, traffic concerns, and other issues, have revoked the approved permits for the show and have decided to cancel Furthur's concert at Vermont's Shelburne Museum on July 5. As the decision made today by the local authorities has been made so close to the event date, unfortunately we are unable to find a suitable alternate venue. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience!
Full & complete refunds are available at point of purchase. If you purchased online you'll automatically be refunded. In the meantime, please be assured that we are working hard to find a replacement show on July 5 somewhere outside of Vermont.
We plan to announce plans for a replacement date later this evening.
Please stay tuned for updates.
Sounds to me like they don't want another Coventry on their hands.

One of the greatest jam bands around, (or the greatest if you ask me) is Phish. Currently embarking on a summer tour of the U.S, Phish is a constant fixture at some of the most classic summer concert venues including Alpine Valley in Wisconson, The Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland, and Jones Beach in Wantagh New York. The top 10 most expensive Phish venues for this summer’s tour however, are topped by the Greek Theatre in Berkeley California, with an average transacted price of $170.04 for the three shows Phish is playing there on August 5-7. All three shows are sold out, but August 5th Phish Tickets, August 6th Phish tickets, and August 7th Phish tickets can be still be found at SeatGeek.
A pretty cool breakdown of the Phish ticket demand with charts, graphs, and whatnot.
RR: I imagine the members of Umphrey’s have always been their own worst critics.
JC: Definitely. Definitely. And it’s funny because I feel like a lot of the things that we are critical about are probably things that a half a percentage of our fanbase notices. (laughter) We want to go out there and we do want to put out our best show every time, and when that doesn’t happen it is frustrating for all of us because we know how good we can be. I know one of the more recent sets that we played, the late night set at Wakarusa (June 5), was one where things were just happening, and falling into place. It was like 8 to 10,000 people, everybody, gettin’ down. We really felt good about that recent performance, and I think a couple of our Summer Camp shows, too, we definitely felt really good about those, too.
So, overall, our consistency level has gone up in 2010 both with the creativity with the setlist and the improvisation. Those are the two things that really keep our core fanbase interested in coming back to see us time after time. We just plan to keep on focusing on those this summer. It’s really exciting because this is our first real summer headlining tour that we’ve ever done. Of course, we have a few festivals here and there that we’re still doing, but, for the most part, these are headlining shows. The biggest thing our fans have asked for is “Can you do a summer tour where we get to hear more than 90 minutes of Umphrey’s McGee?” (laughs) I think every single one of these shows, except for a scant few, we’re either doing a two-hour set and an encore, or we’re still doing two sets. It makes me really happy that we’re able to accomplish that, and get into a number of venues that we wanted to play at, and places where we could have success from a business standpoint, and also, have success with making our fans happy.
