Phil Lesh has no friends

Tickets went on sale today for the Phil & Friends shows at the Beacon Theater & Hammerstein Ballroom. Didn't get tix because he hasn't announced who the band is yet. We saw him at the beautiful Newark PAC right before Thanksgiving and he was great with Chris Robinson singing. I would definitely go again if he was part of the band but for $40+ a ticket I want some guarantees. Phil is usually good but I'm really not looking for a Warren Haynes slide guitar wankfest. Had enough of that at the Allman Brothers show at Jones Beach over the summer (although it was well worth the $15 with moe. opening). A repeat of the April '99 friends would be off the charts. Come on Phil, who are your friends?
