, Staff

Road warriors Furthur will hit the pavement again this fall for a tour to close out the year. Led by former Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh & Bob Weir, the band will continue their musical adventures this fall with a pair of shows in Massachusetts and New Hampshire

Furthur will perform at the Mullins Center in Amherst on Sunday, November 6. They’ll launch the tour a few days earlier in New Hampshire, when they rock the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester on Thursday, November 3. Tickets for both shows, which range in price from $37.50 to $57.50, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

Fans, new and old, can expect Lesh and Weir to “furthur” explore some of the Grateful Dead’s classic songs with help from an all star band featuring keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (Rat Dog), drummer Joe Russo (Benevento – Russo Duo, Trey Anastasio), and guitarist John Kadlecik (Dark Star Orchestra) and vocalists Sunshine Becker and Jeff Pehrson.

In July, Further headlined the Comcast Center in Mansfield and also performed at the Gathering of the Vibes music festival in Bridgeport, Connecticut. In March, they delivered a three-night stand at the Oprheum Theatre in Boston.
