Dead & Company Bring Tour To Bristow: Full Show Audio


Dead & Company featuring Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann joined by John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti continued a lengthy summer tour last night at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia. The band continued to expand its repertoire with four tour debuts mixed among more familiar material.

The sextet opened with Mayer-sung “Cold Rain & Snow” ahead of Weir growling out “New Speedway Boogie” and the tour’s first version of Marty Robbins’ “El Paso.” John Mayer was then back in the spotlight for “They Love Each Other” and a pretty version of “Candyman,” which was a tour debut. It was in “Bird Song” that Dead & Company showed off their jamming skills as they took the song deep before concluding the set with the tour’s first “Don’t Ease Me In.”

Dead & Company’s second set began with Bobby leading the “Lost Sailor” > “Saint Of Circumstance” pairing. “Viola Lee Blues” featured plenty of impressive improv and gave way to “Terrapin Station.” Oteil then joined the Rhythm Devils for a particularly untz-y “Drums.” The evening’s free-form “Space” segment led into a cover of The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence,” the show’s final tour debut. A boisterous “Sugar Magnolia” ended the second set, while the second-ever D&C “Black Muddy River” served as encore. Next up for Dead & Company are a pair of shows at Citi Field in New York City on Saturday and Sunday.
