Kevin Morby Joins Whitney In Chicago


Whitney held a five-show hometown residency at Thalia Hall in Chicago that concluded with a performance on Sunday night. The final pair of concerts featured special guest Kevin Morby sitting-in with Whitney in the Windy City.

Whitney’s show Saturday largely stuck to the setlist they have played this tour in support of their new album, Forever Turned Around. The band led by drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek were supported at various points by a string section and welcomed rapper Flowers who freestyled during “Rhododendron.” Toward the end of the main set, Finally Aaron joined Whitney on Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay,” and the previous collaborator stuck around for the set-ending “Golden Days.”

The encore began with “Used To Be Lonely” and a cover of Allen Toussaint’s “Southern Nights.” Morby then emerged to helm a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Knocking On Heaven’s Door.” The guest guitarist then led the group through his “I Have Been To The Mountain.” The night ended with “No Woman” and Finally Aaron coming back for “Valleys (My Love).” Watch Saturday’s collaborative “Knocking On Heaven’s Door” cover via Jeff Bentoff below:
