Former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh brought their Furthur band to Colorado for a 4 day run that started with a Thursday evening show at the Ogden Theare in Denver and finished with Friday, Saturday and Sunday shows at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield.
Ogden Theatre Furthur ticket was a treasured item indeed. The show sold out in less than two minutes and if you were not one of the lucky ones that were able to purchase a ticket and you wanted to go to the show, then chances were, you were going to pay. Tickets were selling over CraigsList and other ticket re-sellers for an average of $420 each with some sellers asking as high as a thousand dollars for the “golden ticket.”
There were some kind deals and yes even some miracles for this show that pitted a major touring band in a small venue for a special one of show for dedicated fans.
As expected, by show time the place was packed and the anticipation in the room palpable.
The first set opened with Feel Like a Stranger and continued with some of the bands slower songs. The second set was a fun ride from beginning to end with the highlight for me being the St. Stephen>The Eleven into Stella Blue.
Here are some photos and video from this historic one of event.
