moe. kicked off a two-night run at Apple Valley Park in Lafayette, New York on Saturday. The Buffalo-bred band dusted off their cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” for the first time in more than four years during the second set.

moe. — guitarists Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey, bassist Rob Derhak, drummer Vinnie Amico and percussionist Jim Loughlin — got the show underway with the Derhak-penned classic “Captain America” before heading through a well-jammed version of Garvey’s “Bullet” and “Hector’s Pillow.” The Schnier tune “Bring You Down” capped off the seamless set-opening sequence. Chuck’s “Where Does The Time Go” followed ahead of relatively new tune “LL3,” which opens the band’s 2020 album studio album, This Is Not, We Are but debuted in 2018. A massive “Recreational Chemistry” clocking in at over 30 minutes closed out the set.

The quintet kept up the Schnier composed staples in the second set with “Bring It Back Home” followed by “Big World.” The band then segued through “Ricky Marten” and “Mar De Ma.” moe. returned to newer material with “Along For The Ride” before busting out the Floyd classic “Comfortably Numb.” moe. last played The Wall cut on April 8, 2017 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, as per Phantasy Tour. The Apple Park play marked just the fifth time the band has performed the song since debuting it in 2016. After some teases of “La Grange” by ZZ Top — whose bassist Dusty Hill passed away on July 28 — the quintet headed into their own classic “Opium” ahead of set closer “Plane Crash.” moe. brought the concert to a close with “Wind It Up” for the encore.
