Grateful Dead fans might want to start tie-dying now for this summer's Furthur Festival, which kicks off at Atlanta's Lakewood Amphitheater on June 25 and will wind its way across America before ending at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California on July 22.
As we previously reported ("Surviving Dead Members To Play Further Festival This Summer"), this year's festival will include performances by Hot Tuna, Rusted Root and The Other Ones -- the band comprised of ex-Dead members Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Bruce Hornsby and others.
On-sale dates for the shows have not yet been announced, but tickets will be available from regular outlets as well as the Dead's ticket sales office, GDTS Too. More information and updates on the Furthur Festival can be found online at the Dead's website at www.dead.net.
In other news, the Dead camp has just released
advanced sketches of the proposed Terrapin Station complex, which is expected to be completed over the next few years. No site has been chosen for the museum-cum-gathering spot, but it will undoubtedly be situated somewhere in the San Francisco bay area.
