Re: the longest...tour vets please

I would say I've been to 90% of Bokomaru's shows that they've played in the last 20 years or so.
They really haven't played all that often lately. Couple of times a year.

GD spring tour 1991, I saw 11 shows almost consecutively over 16 days, I skipped one Nassua so I could go skiing at Straton VT and what do you know they played Reuben and Cerise that night and when I found out I was pissed though I did catch it at Landover. The tour ended for me 2nd night Greensboro and at that point I was joyously fried. The Eyes that night was off the charts.

Four shows in row is best I could do I think. Maybe five.

Hmmm I don't know that I've ever done a full tour, probably not.... I'm from NY & considered Florida & Chicago out of show range, I've probably done quite a few east coast tours minus those or one of those...

I don't always have the stamina, like I skipped whatever was between Long Beach & Vegas (81 & I think it was Tempe?) so I wouldn't have to drive thru the desert for hours & hours & hours with no ac. Stuff like that.

That was 30 years ago, forget about it now. Three maybe? Lol. If I'm lucky.

In 1980 I did 15 shows at the Warfield, then two in Luisiana, then 8 at radio city for 25 in a row. I also might have done a few shows prior to that run as well as seeing Weir 3 or 4 days later in NYC. That was my longest run without missing a show I think. Ive done many a spring east coast tour in the early 80's, 5 or 6 years in a row.

I once did almost an entire winter tour. I couldn't make the first night but I made it to every other show. All 3 of them. It was in Colorado and it was awesome.

The 80s were great (started in '81) but I like talking to the vets that were there in the 70s. Like seeing the wall of sound, now that would have been cool.
