Bob Weir :: 10.16.16 :: The Capitol Theatre :: Port Chester, NY

Last night Bob Weir brought his Campfire Tour in support of the recently released Blue Mountain to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. The evening marked Bobby’s 69th birthday and the crowd recognized the occasion by singing “Happy Birthday” as the Grateful Dead guitarist took the stage. Weir started his first set with a solo acoustic segment that included “One More Saturday Night,” which Bob mentioned he didn’t have time to play the previous evening. Bobby then welcomed an expanded version of his band for the tour as guitarist Aaron Dessner joined the core band of Josh Kaufman, Steve Kimock, Scott Devendorf, Bryan Devendorf and Jon Shaw for the rest of the concert.

Dessner wasn’t Bobby’s only guest as vocalists The Bandana Splits added to “One More River To Cross,” “Darkest Hour,” “Lay My Lily Down,” “Ghost Towns” and “Gonesville” in the first set, while Leslie Mendelson also contributed to “Dark Hollow.” The second set saw Mendelson contribute to “Mama Tried” and “Eyes Of The World,” while both Leslie and The Bandana Splits lent their voices to “Uncle John’s Band.” For the encore, Weir was given a birthday cake and wore a cowboy hat (which were also distributed to the entire crowd and his band mates as per on a solo acoustic “Ki-Yi Bossie” before bringing out the band and The Bandana Splits for “Brokedown Palace.” Photographer Andrew Blackstein was at The Cap last night, view his gallery of photos below as well as pro-shot video:
