Furthur Loses Vermont Date

Officials at the Shelburne Museum near Burlington, Vermont concluded that concert organizers had not done enough to guarantee security at sold-out concert scheduled for Monday (7/5) featuring Furthur, the group that includes former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh.  The band's publicist. J.C. Juanis, was quoted in the Burlington Free Press as laying blame on 'local authorities' for revoking permits - a claim state and local officials called bogus.  The decision to pull the plug on the event appears instead to have been reached by the Museum over concerns that attempts by ticketless fans to gain access to the grounds could pose a threat to historic artifacts on the site, which sits near the shores of Lake Champlain to the south of Burlington.  The band has booked a Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania show to replace the lost Vermont date.
