I too think Gorge will happen, as it's "their thing" like someone mentioned above. I also think the Gorge community depends heavily on that weekend, as there are only a handful of events at Gorge. And I just don't see DMB giving someone else the weekend for a year, but I suppose anything is possible if they truly wanted a break.

Fingers crossed for a few Caravans. Someone in the Gorge thread suggested the idea of a festival in Atlantic City since LiveNation signed a deal there. Not sure if it's even remotely possible that they do a 3-day festival, but that would be pretty awesome.

What, in any way, has indicated they will play full band shows next year?

The rumor is 2 D&T shows at the gorge on labor day.

    Seems like Dave could be working on a new solo album next year.

    My guess would be the Caravans, but I'm not sure if its fair to count them.

    yeah I definitely wouldnt count that. Individual performances, I would like to know myself. I find it hard to believe they would play at the gorge just as D&T.

    Re: 2017 Rumors

    It's just my thoughts, no credible sources. If anything, what I heard from crew at Gorge was that this was the first year they don't have the Gorge booked yet. I still think it'll happen. When was the last time they didn't play Labor Day at Gorge?

    The rumor is 2 D&T shows at the gorge on labor day.
    Not sure when D&T 2 shows on Labor Day became a feasible rumor. I imagine it would be 3 shows if they did the Gorge on Labor Day, but it also just seemed like more of a what if question than a rumor:

    actually DMB has right of first refusal at the Gorge for Labor Day Weekend IIRC

    which means they have the venue booked in perpetuity

    they played Red Rocks in 2008

    it was an event in anticipation of Denver hosting the upcoming DNC

    short set, but that's 9k + venue in any case

    Re: 2017 Rumors

    do they sell the whole venue for that (meaning CMAC) or is there some portion blocked off?

    This is what I would assume as well. And I imagine that even though they don't have it firmly booked/locked down, that window for refusal is probably still open, and may be for a few more months.

    A lot of speculation, but this band has never taken a full year off, Dave/others have talked about the itch to play live, and I would think that if they were to play any shows, Gorge would likely be very high on that list. I'm not just saying that because it's my home venue, I actually wouldn't mind getting a chance to see Phish at Dick's or just do something else for Labor Day Weekend. When they announced Caravan in 2011, they only announced the first two off the bat if I remember, but everyone knew the Gorge was coming.

    Not sure I'd buy into D&T at the Gorge. I feel like the sound would get lost on the lawn.

    I have been wrong (many times) but I think there is precisely zero point zero chance of a D&T show at the gorge (freestanding)

    also, if we aren't counting CMAC, they played Veteran Memorial Coliseum (Winston-Salem, NC) in 2003 which has a capacity of 14,655

    it's the Wake Forest Bball arena

    Re: 2017 Rumors

    they played the convention center there, much smaller

    edit: convention center is the wrong term....it's a smaller theatre space meant for smaller crowds but is still within the footprint of the joel coliseum

    This too. Even seeing them on the small side stage at Gorge wasn't very good. As much as I love that amphitheater and would love another weekend with my Gorge friends, I'd much rather see them play a show in a theater in Vancouver/Seattle/Portland, or even a venue I'd have to fly to.

    weird, wonder why that isn't noted

    i'd probably say Red Rocks is the largest then if CMAC had sections blocked off

    selling out the space that is made available is different than selling out all the space, though

    they very well could have had all 15-17K available, but they also may have blocked some areas off, I don't know

    I dont know why they would block off a lawn section, because they didnt block off seats. Nor do I see why they would limit lawn ticket sales if whatever allotment they were using did sell out.

    Guessing CMAC is the correct answer as far as biggest Dave and Tim headlining venue.

    D&T sold out CMAC in 2012. See the comment below the picture: http://www.fltimes.com/news/local/cm...9bb2963f4.html

    Edit: Looks like it sold out in 2016 as well: http://www.fltimes.com/lifestyle/dav...09291e224.html

    But it doesn't say how many seats were made available.

    Assembly Hall at Indiana University for Obama was a pretty large venue.
