Lukas Nelson + POTR wrapped a two-night stand at The Fillmore with a concert at the storied San Francisco venue on Thursday. Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir was back at The Fillmore last night and joined frontman Lukas Nelson and his bandmates on a performance of the Grateful Dead’s “West L.A. Fadeaway.”

Weir and Nelson have shared the stage many times over recent years and continued their collaborative streak Thursday night at The Fillmore. Weir played guitar and sang lead on “West L.A. Fadeaway,” a song written by Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia and lyricist Robert Hunter. Weir previously played “West L.A. Fadeaway” with Lukas Nelson in San Francisco in 2017.


Lukas Nelson’s brother Micah Nelson played lap guitar during Weir’s sit-in, which came during the encore of Thursday’s concert and also saw both guests augment a subsequent “Not Fade Away.”

Prior to Weir’s sit-in, Thursday’s setlist featured several selections from Lukas Nelson + POTR’s excellent 2023 album, Sticks And Stones, as they offered live takes on “Alcohallelujah,” “Icarus,” “Ladder of Love,” “Lying,” “Wrong House” and the title track. Micah Nelson came out to play guitar and sing lead on his Particle Kid song “Everything Is Bullshit.”

The main set also worked in covers of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars?” and Willie Nelson‘s staple, “Bloody Mary Morning.” Prior to Weir’s emergence, the encore kicked off with Pink Floyd’s “Echoes.”
