The inaugural Bob Weir and Wolf Bros tour moved to Seattle on Tuesday night for a performance at the Moore Theatre. Bob Weir, drummer Jay Lane and bassist Don Was were joined by Seattle’s own Jori Chisholm for portions of both sets in the Emerald City.

The trio opened the evening with “Scarlet Begonias” and then brought out Chisholm. Jori last contributed to a Weir performance way back on February 17, 2007 at the same venue as part of a RatDog show. Bagpipes added an interesting element to Bob’s Blue Mountain gem “Lay My Lily Down.” Next came covers of Kris Kristofferson’s “Me & Bobby McGee” and Willie Dixon’s “Little Red Rooster” before the biggest setlist surprise of the evening. Bob Weir & Wolf Bros dusted off “Josephine,” a song Weir wrote for his Bobby & The Midnites studio album and side project. The guitarist last performed “Josephine” on October 10, 2015 as per Setlist.FM.

Bob Weir & Wolf Bros capped the frame with “When I Paint My Masterpiece” by Bob Dylan and the beloved pairing of “Lost Sailor” and “Saint Of Circumstance.” Last night’s second set was heavy on Grateful Dead classics such as “Jack Straw,” “Bertha,” “Bird Song” and “Throwing Stones.” The closing stanza also included “Gonesville” off Blue Mountain, a rare audible as Weir went with “Corrina” instead of “Deal” and another beloved pairing in the form of “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider.” Chisholm returned to lend his talents to the “Wharf Rat” jam. Tuesday’s concert came to a close with a “Brokedown Palace” encore. The tour continues tonight in Missoula.
