Furthur is canceling a tour date after guitarist Bob Weir fell onstage at a concert last week. Weir, 65, said on his website Tuesday that the Grateful Dead offshoot is ‘‘unable to perform for the next several weeks . . . due to unforeseen circumstances.’’ They were scheduled to play May 9 in Napa, Calif. Weir was quickly helped off the floor after collapsing onstage at a concert last week in Port Chester, N.Y. Weir formed Furthur with fellow Grateful Dead member Phil Lesh. Furthur’s summer tour kicks off July 11 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Van Gogh Museum reopens after work
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has reopened after a seven-month renovation, kicking off with ‘‘Van Gogh at Work,’’ an exhibition of 145 paintings and sketches that show the famously tortured artist’s working methods right down to his paints, brushes, and other tools. Appropriately, the final painting curators hung Wednesday was a self-portrait in which Vincent Van Gogh painted himself behind a canvas, brushes and palette in hand. Nearby, on loan from the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, are an actual palette and paints that Van Gogh used. Marije Vellekoop, head of collections, said they were preserved by Dr. Paul-Ferdinand Gachet, the physician who treated the artist in the final months before his 1890 suicide.
