Bob Weir Cancels Tour

Bob Weir and RatDog have cancelled the Summer and Fall Tour. The statement on the Furthur Facebook page says, 

Circumstances have necessitated that all scheduled tour dates for Bob Weir and RatDog are being cancelled. This applies to all dates on the summer tour starting in Thursday, August 14 in Boston through September 14 in Nashville and also includes the Jamaica event in January of 2015. Full and complete refunds are available at place of purchase. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

So we do not know what this means for the Furthur show that was coming up or for the shows that Chris Robinson's band was going to open up for. More to be revealed.
