According to many news sources including the Bay Areas renown SFGate, Furthur will not be playing at Napa, CA’s BottleRock Festival on opening night. No other replacement has been announced at this time. According to Bob Weir‘s website:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, Furthur regretfully will be unable to appear as scheduled at BottleRock Napa Valley on Thursday, May 9. Grateful Dead & Furthur Co-Founder Bob Weir, is unable to perform in any capacity for the next several weeks. Bob looks forward to resuming his “Weir Here” broadcasts from TRI Studios in mid to late June and performing his Solo acoustic shows June 26-30. Furthur featuring Phil Lesh & Bob Weir look forward to returning to the road as scheduled on July 11 in Brooklyn for their Summer tour, which carries them through early October on the West Coast.”

Hope you feel better soon Bobby. Much love!!
