Umphrey’s McGee Busts Out Beatles Cover In Tulsa

Jam sextet Umphrey’s McGee kicked off a southern swing on Wednesday night at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The band performed eight songs they hadn’t played in at least 10 shows including a Beatles cover that had gone missing since 2013.

Umphrey’s opened with “Room To Breathe” ahead of “In The Black,” an original they debuted at UMBowl VI in 2015. “Intentions Clear” was jammed into “Get In The Van” before UM went old school for a run of “Example 1,” “The Fussy Dutchman” and “Sociable Jimmy.” Another song unveiled at UMBowl VI, “Make It Right,” brought the first set to a close.

“Bright Lights, Big City” returned after a 21-show layoff to begin the second set. “The Linear” and “Booth Love” were both extended and gave way to the jam vehicle “Nothing Too Fancy.” Up next was UM’s first cover of “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window” by The Beatles since April 26, 2013 – a span of 391 shows. Another bust out followed in the form of the year’s initial “Little Gift.” The second set concluded with “Mulche’s Odyssey,” while the evening’s encore featured the instrumental “Kimble” and the end of “Nothing Too Fancy.”

Tonight, Umphrey’s plays Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin. A free webcast is available via TourGigs thanks to Jamble.
