One night after making their triumphant return to Red Rocks, Ween played the first of two shows at Denver’s Ogden Theatre on Thursday evening. An audience recording of the 28-song performance has surfaced and can be streamed and downloaded below.
Guitarists Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo and Aaron “Gene Ween” Freeman, bassist Dave Dreiwitz, drummer Claude Coleman Jr. and keyboardist Glenn McClelland didn’t repeat any songs from Wednesday’s Red Rocks show last night in Denver. Ween played at least one tune from nearly all of their studio albums at the Ogden including four from the 20-year-old The Mollusk.
Deaner, Gener and the gang also treated Denver fans to a number of songs they recently dusted off. “There’s A Pig” made its second appearance after the group busted it out for the first time in 887 shows on June 11. Ween debuted the live version of “Pink Eye (On My Leg)” on June 30 at High Sierra, performed it again the next night and played it once more last night in Denver. Additionally, “Seconds” continued its return just over a month after it came back to the fold following a 613-show layoff. Thursday’s concert also featured just the third “The Stallion Pt. 5” since Ween ended a hiatus in February of 2016.
There were plenty of live staples included in the set such as “Exactly Where I’m At,” “Bananas And Blow,” “Piss Up A Rope,” “Roses Are Free,” “The Argus” and “Zoloft.” Ween brought last night’s show to a close with an encore of “I’m Dancing In The Show Tonight,” “Mister Richard Smoker” and “I Can’t Put My Finger On It.” The quintet returns to the Ogden on Friday night.
