Cary, NC – Get out your tie-dye t-shirts because Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of Grateful Dead fame are bringing their band Further to Booth Amphitheatre in Cary this July 11.
Further Goes Beyond the Dead
No doubt, Lesh and Weir and the band will play lots of Grateful Dead. But the new band covers other artists too, including Pink Floyd and the Beatles. The late Jerry Garcia did some memorable covers, including his take on Dear Prudence.
Further puts their own post-Dead stamp on some more classic material, giving Dead-fans and rock music lovers of all stripes something to appreciate and consider.

Koka Booth Amphitheatre
Tickets are priced at $59.50 for Reserved Pit, $39.50 for General Admission Lawn. Lawn Price will increase to $45 on the day of the show.
Internet pre-sales begin March 12, but check the Booth Amphitheatre website for updates and mark your calendars. You can also visit the Further 2012 tour website.
Keep on Trucking
There are a lot of poor quality clips of Further on YouTube – bad cell phone video, shaky, dreadful sound. Maybe an opportunity for KBA to record a live show? I happen to know an Emmy-award winning producer who lives right here in Cary.
In the meantime, how about some vintage Grateful Dead from a 1972 show at the Koncertsal in Copenhagen, Denmark. You can also see this clip on YouTube.
