Several posts on the Ratdog chat board said Bob Weir was just taken by ambulance from the Capitol Theatre. Don't want to freak anybody out, but lets just hope Bob is okay.
Peace.

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. — A belligerent and incoherent Bobby Weir lilted and collapsed onstage at about 11 p.m. Thursday night during a Furthur concert at the Capitol Theatre and was assisted off-stage by crew members.

Police told me he was taken away in an ambulance and the Furthur Website had no update on his medical condition as of nearly 1 a.m. Friday.

Weir, 65, is the longtime rhythm guitarist of The Grateful Dead and the band Furthur was playing its ninth sold-out show in 12 days.

“Hope he’s OK. I wish they would have pulled the breaks before it got to this point,” one fan wrote on ThePhilZone.com, a fan Website.

At about 11:10 p.m., the lights went on inside the theatre and the show was briefly halted as crew members helped an incoherent Weir off-stage.

Some fans in the 4,000-seat arena left the building, but Phil Lesh, Weir’s longtime Grateful Dead collaborator, opted to play on after a break.

“I mean, Phil almost stopped playing when his buddy took a dive onstage and buddy gets carried out by the audience,” another fan wrote on the site.

Lesh told the audience that Weir strained his shoulder in a workout and the band continued to play an encore set of “Stella Blue,” “China Cat Sunflower” and “I Know You Rider” without him.

At least one fan who left after Weir collapsed verbally lashed out in the front of the theatre that Lesh kept on playing despite the incident

Standing to the left of the stage during an opening set that began with with “Feels Like a Stranger” and included “Eyes of The World,” “Uncle John’s Band” and “Scarlet Begonias”, Weir could barely remember the words to several songs and was increasingly unable to stand up.

He nearly fell into the amps behind him at one point before tense crew members brought out a chair as the band played on. Weir kicked the chair and continued to play guitar standing up. He then lilted to his left and fell down, stunning the audience.

With the help of crew members, he was assisted up and sat in a red folding chair before nearly falling over several times.

Eventually, after Weir began to play something on the guitar by himself, the crew unplugged his guitar. Lesh and bandmate John Kadlicek walked off stage, leaving Weir alone before he was escorted off by the crew.

The band is scheduled to play Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday.

I cannot believe they just continued to play while Bob flopped around on the stage. I mean really, I expect better from Phil at this stage in their careers. They could have helped the guy up and off the stage and them come back and finished if they must but to just look over at him and keep on. Shameful.

Man I hope he is OK everyone is Monday morning QBing this incident. It sure looks like some kind of meds were involved (pure speculation of coarse) lets hope it all works out for the best.

This is what I was thinking. Phil said something to the crowd about Bobby straining a shoulder earlier in the day. If he did, then I'm sure he had some pretty strong pain meds for that, and probably over did it (not hard for that to happen).

For years now, I've been hearing that Bob doesn't need an injured shoulder to abuse pain meds Throw a legitimate injury into the mix, and you have a recipe for overindulgence.

I think Bob's years of partying are finally starting to catch up with him. If so, I hope this is a much-needed wake-up call.

From Jambands:

John Kadlecik has posted a statement regarding Bob Weir’s collapse last night during Furthur’s performance at The Capitol Theatre. A post on the Furthur guitarists Facebook page reads: 1st reaction: holy **** , man down! Then, I see several crew racing to help, going to be by his side faster than I can put my guitar down… Next thought: what is Phil going to do? He’s playing on… Bobby had help at this point, so the next person in need of support was Phil… Pretty f*d up moment… but Bobby wanted to finish the show! Sometimes the rock n roll life is not all rainbows & fairy dust… While we can’t find the original post for this next statement, multiple sources have reported that Kadlecik also posted the following response: Bob (weir) wanted to play… if Phil, the crew & management couldn’t talk him out of it, you think i have some magic power? This wasn’t overpartying, btw, it was accidentally taking an ambien instead of a painkiller… the shoulder injury is real, & the white guitar just showed up the last couple of shows because it only weighs 3 or 4 lbs As previously reported, Bob Weir collapsed on stage during the second set after struggling through the final show of Furthur’s nine-night run at The Capitol Theatre last night.

Tonights show was fantastic. He's back and he's fine. He has a lighter guitar to help w/ the shoulder problems.
