Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir was one of many legendary musicians to perform at a Rennsport Reunion event held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna in Monterey, California on Friday night. Dhani Harrison hosted the surprise concert which came in celebration of Porsche’s 70th anniversary.
Harrison served as part of a house band that also included Benmont Tench and Steve Ferrone of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture, Brian Bell of Weezer, Noah Harmon of The Airbone Toxic Event and Josh Giroux. Dhani led the ensemble through Jimi Hendrix’s “Lover Man” and “I’m So Glad” by Cream to start before Alison Mosshart of The Kills and The Dead Weather emerged for songs by Iggy Pop, Blondie and Bruce Springsteen. Next, The Cult frontman Ian Astbury fronted the house band on Doors classics “Roadhouse Blues” and “5 To 1” as well as David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream.”
Jane’s Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell stepped into the spotlight to sing “Mountain Song” plus Petty’s “Breakdown” and The Rolling Stones’ hit “Sympathy For The Devil.” Seal then came on stage to lead the house band on his own “Kiss From A Rose” and Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel.” Bob Weir was the final featured performer of the evening.
