Dave Matthews Band kicked off a two-night stand at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, New York on Friday night where they busted out “Joyride” for the first time since August 30, 2013 and also treated the SPAC audience to a mash-up of AC/DC’s “Back In Black” and the Bee Gees‘ “Stayin’ Alive.”

The show also contained favorites like “Tripping Billies,” “Minarets,” “Satellite,” “Crush,” “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin),” “Where Are You Going,” “The Song That Jane Likes,” “Everyday,” “Ants Marching,” and a cover of Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like An Eagle.”

The encore included the band’s classic closer, Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” with elements of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway To Heaven.”
