WATCH DMB COVER "(DON'T FEAR) THE REAPER" AND "GOOD TIMES, BAD TIMES"
The Dave Matthews Band played their second of two consecutive shows at
Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY last night. The band kicked off the show with the extremely old
sequence of "Seek Up," "Proudest Monkey" and "Satellite" and wound up focusing on material
from their oldest albums including five songs from 1996's Crash, a pair of songs
off their Remember Two Things debut and three tunes from their breakthrough
Under The Table And Dreaming LP.
However the evening's biggest surprise came nine songs in the set, when Matthews and his
band dusted off their cover of "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult. DMB first
covered the tune on September 3, 2011 at The Gorge, but had yet to play it again until
last night. Matthews mentioned that the late LeRoi Moore was a huge fan of the song and
that 'Roi always wanted the DMB to cover the FM radio staple.
At the first Jones Beach show, DMB dusted off another classic rock cover by performing
their version of "Good Times, Bad Times" by Led Zeppelin which had also gone unplayed
since the Gorge shows in 2011.
