John Mayer played Jerry Garcia’s famed Wolf guitar during Dead & Company’s concert last night. The summer tour stop took place at Citi Field in New York City. Wolf has been on display at The Met as part of the museum’s Play It Loud: Instruments Of Rock & Roll exhibit.

Mayer joined Garcia’s former Grateful Dead band mates, guitarist Bob Weir and drummers Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, on a show opening selection of “St. Stephen.” The band rounded out by keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and bassist Oteil Burbridge then turned to “Cold Rain and Snow” and the Sunday staple “Samson & Delilah.” Oteil and Bobby split vocal duty on “High Time,” which was added to the band’s repertoire earlier in the tour. “They Love Each Other,” “Ramble On Rose,” “Sugaree” and “Jack Straw” filled in the rest of the first set.

Mayer and Wolf began the second set with “Lady with a Fan” > “Terrapin Station.” Wolf had another chance to shine as Mayer led a subsequent “Althea,” which was followed by the coupling of “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire On The Mountain.” The band continued playing through the P.A. at Citi Field cutting out during “Fire.” As is often the case, Oteil stuck around with The Rhythm Devils for the “Drums” portion of the second set. The band conjured “The Wheel” out of “Space” and then turned to “The Other One” before “Morning Dew” ended the second half. Mayer remained on Wolf during the “Brokedown Palace” encore that saw Weir switch to an acoustic guitar. Watch a set of videos from Citi Field below:
