Last night Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds played the second of two shows at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga, New York. The duo have performed 90+ different songs during their current North American tour, and continued to add new songs to their setlist at the penultimate stop.
The first third of Dave and Tim’s setlist last night leaned heavy on tour staples including takes on “Bartender,” “So Much To Say,” “Grace Is Gone” and “Warehouse.” Around the midway point of the pair’s main set they offered up the tour debut of “Long Black Veil.” The Lefty Frizzell-penned tune, which has been a staple of Dave Matthews Band setlists since 1999, was played for the first time since August of 2015. Two songs later guitar-wiz Tim Reynolds took center stage for a solo instrumental rendition of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes,” which marked the debut performance of the track from Gabriel’s 1986 album So.
The tour debuts weren’t done there, as the guitarists played Daniel Lanois’ “The Maker” for the first time on the North American leg of their tour. Later in the set the pair offered up their fourth rendition of the Allman Brother’s track “Melissa,” ahead of DMB’s “Everyday” and another tour debut the old-school crowd-pleaser “Typical Situation.”
Dave and Tim closed out their two-night SPAC stand with the three song encore of “The Space Between,” “Halloween” > “Ants Marching.”
Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds conclude the their tour tonight, with a show at the Frank Gehry-designed Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD.
