The Chris Robinson Brotherhood Honors Leon Russell In Richmond

Advertisement

Last night the Chris Robinson Brotherhood held a concert at The National in Richmond, Virginia. The band took the opportunity to pay tribute to the late great Leon Russell by covering a pair of his songs to open their second set.

The band was among the many musicians that shared condolences in response to Russell’s death last week at the age of 74. The CRB posted a message which read:

The master of space & time has left the planet. Long live the man under the top hat! Truly one of our biggest influences & a real American music legend! We love you Leon!

At the start of their second set, frontman Chris Robinson led the outfit through covers of Russell’s “Stranger In A Strange Land” and “Alcatraz.” Both songs were recorded on the landmark 1971 LP Leon Russell And The Shelter People. The full CRB setlist from their show on Monday night can be seen in the graphic below.
