Dave Matthews Band Welcomes James Casey At Rescheduled Jones Beach Concert
Dave Matthews Band played a concert at Northwell Health At Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York on Thursday night that was originally slated for Wednesday night. Bad weather led DMB to cut Wednesday’s show short but there were no such problems on Thursday as the band pulled off a 21-song performance that included a guest appearance from Trey Anastasio Band saxophonist James Casey.
Casey augmented the band on a version of “Jimi Thing” that gave way to DMB’s recently debuted mash-up of AC/DC’s “Black In Black” and the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” as well as their cover of Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like An Eagle.” James last performed with the seven-piece last summer at the same venue. Jeff Coffin made it through the concert without incident one night after leaving the stage in the middle of the group’s shortened set due to illness.
When Wednesday’s stage setlist circulated, fans were shocked to see “The Last Stop” included. DMB had only performed the song from Before These Crowded Streets once since 2016. Thankfully, atttendees didn’t have to wait long to see if “The Last Stop” would make the setlist on Thursday as DMB opened with “The Last Stop” for the first time since November 3, 2010. Other standout moments from Thursday at Jones Beach were another version of the recently revived “Joyride,” the tour debut of “Come Tomorrow,” and rarities “Lover Lay Down” and “Where Are You Going.”
Tonight (Friday, July 19) the septet plays PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte. A live broadcast will air on SiriusXM’s Dave Matthews Band Radio (Channel 30).
