The General Manager of the Tower Theater gave a presentation in one of my classes at Temple this past Monday night, and explained how since Furthur was such a big deal and since the Tower was so honored to have them for 5 nights they wanted to do something nice for the band.
The staff at the Tower apparently re-furnished and re-painted the backstage VIP area specifically in an attempt to please our boys. I guess Jill got backstage before anyone else and supposedly the smell of the paint was overwhelming and she didn't want Phil around the area until the smell resided.
So Jill, if you see this 1. please don't hate me, and just know that it was the best intentions of the staff at the Tower to make the backstage area extra accommodating and pleasant for y'all, not to gross you out.
The whole run was magical, and I thank you all so much for making it a reality.
