Big Concert at Cooperstown’s Doubleday Field

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

There’s more to historic Doubleday Field than just baseball.

The intimate baseball park just down the Thruway in Cooperstown has also played host to some top-flight concerts in recent years, and it looks like this summer will be no different.

Furthur – featuring both Bob Weir and Phil Lesh carrying on the musical traditions of the Grateful Dead – is slated to make a tour stop at the historic ball park at 7pm on Sunday, July 14. The concert will take place rain or shine.

All tickets are general admission, priced at $53 and on sale now.

Furthur is back, and this time around the Times Union Center in Albany has got ’em.

Back in July, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir led Furthur into the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (our review/photos here), and now they’ve announced their return to Nippertown just four months later.

The Furthur concert is slated for the TU Center at 7pm on Tuesday, November 15. The Albany concert announcement came in the wake of the cancellation of a Furthur concert slated for the same date at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, PA, due to “unforeseen production complications.”

Tix are slated to go on sale to the general public at 10am on Saturday (October 15). Ticket prices TBA. UPDATE: Tix are $45 and $55.
