Bob Dylan Teams With James And Tweedy For The Weight

The AmericanaramA tour moved on to Farm Bureau Live at Virginia Beach in Virginia Beach, VA last night for performances by Ryan Bingham and tour headliners My Morning Jacket , Wilco and Bob Dylan . We’ve been a bit disappointed with the few collaborations Dylan has taken part in, but we’ve got no complaints about what happened last night as Zimmy brought out Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy and My Morning Jacket front man Jim James for a gorgeous take on “The Weight.”

The guest spots started at the end of Wilco’s set, when they brought out My Morning Jacket for another cover of “Cinnamon Girl” by Neil Young. Then, Dylan welcomed Tweedy and James 14 songs into his set for “The Weight.” All three men shared vocals on The Band classic.
