Full Show Audio & Pro-Shot Video: Dead & Company Conclude Hollywood Bowl Run

Dead & Company returned to the famed Hollywood Bowl on Thursday night for their second of two shows at the Southern California venue. Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart along with Jeff Chimenti, Oteil Burbridge and John Mayer continued to mainly focus on staples from the band’s first two tours and welcomed Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident for “Drums.”

Weir led the six-piece through “Hell In A Bucket” to begin the show. Mayer then fronted D&C on the blues classic “Next Time You See Me” ahead of a frisky “West L.A. Fadeaway.” The first set rolled on with “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo” and “Little Red Rooster” before a nicely extended “Uncle John’s Band” served as the improvisational highlight of the opening stanza. Dead & Company concluded last night’s first set with “New Speedway Boogie” and “U.S. Blues.”

The sextet kicked out the jams in the second set, opening with an adventurous “Estimated Prophet,” intense “St. Stephen” and slow-paced “Terrapin Station.” Dead & Company then dove into “Dark Star” with the song’s verses split by “Drums” and “Space.” Hann joined The Rhythm Devils for a jamtronica-heavy “Drums” before the instrumentalists explored “Space.” Mayer shined on the “Morning Dew” set closer before the band brought the evening to a close with a “Not Fade Away” encore.

Dead & Company now heads to Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California for shows on Saturday and Sunday. Webcasts of both concerts are available via nugs.tv.
