On Tuesday night Dead & Company Fall Tour 2017 continued at the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. The sextet of Bob Weir, Oteil Burbridge, Mickey Hart, Jeff Chimenti, John Mayer and Bill Kreutzmann treated Deadheads in the U.S. capital to a show focusing on Grateful Dead classics from the ’70s.
The band opened with a Weir-sung “Feel Like A Stranger” and a Mayer-led “Bertha” that gave way to “Black-Throated Wind.” Bobby belted out the Ace gem to the delight of the D.C. crowd. Next up was a loping “Tennessee Jed” ahead of John and Oteil sharing vocals on a beautiful “Ship Of Fools.” Dead & Company then took “Cassidy” for a ride and ended the frame with a “Deal” featuring a scorching solo from Mayer.
Dead & Company opened the second set with a punchy “Help On The Way” > “Slipknot!” > “Franklin’s Tower” sequence. Weir then turned up the passion on “Looks Like Rain” before the sextet linked “Terrapin Station” into “Drums.” Hart and Kreutzmann pounded out tribal beats and worked in jamtronica samples ahead of Mickey strumming The Beam as the basis for a quick “Space” that led into “Days Between.” Once again, Bob was in good voice for the slow burner. D & C then ended the set with a somewhat exploratory “Throwing Stones” and a euphoric “Touch Of Grey” opener.
