Louisville rockers My Morning Jacket played a pair of shows at the iconic Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado on Saturday and Sunday nights. As reported, the band treated fans to a slew of covers both nights and we’ve compiled the best available fan-shot footage of each.

The first cover played was MMJ’s first version of Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” since their One Big Holiday destination festival in 2014. My Morning Jacket was joined by former member Johnny Quaid for the Dylan cover on Saturday. Watch footage shot by DarkStarFlashes:

Quaid was also on hand as MMJ dusted off a cover of Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone” on Saturday which also hadn’t been performed since One Big Holiday ’14. Here’s video captured by andeb3:

Saturday’s final cover was another shred-heavy version of Prince’s “Purple Rain” featuring Quaid on guitar. Check out video of “Purple Rain” shot by Mike Murphy:

On Sunday, My Morning Jacket unveiled another Prince cover as they performed the Purple Rain track “Take Me With U.” Watch video captured by 1201 Mac:

The encore of Sunday’s show featured two covers MMJ hadn’t played in years. Up first, check out the band’s version of “Peaceful Easy Feeling” by the Eagles shot by EasyMorningRebel:

The other cover My Morning Jacket busted out was Lionel Richie & The Commodores’ “Easy.” While we await high quality footage of the entire cover to surface, here’s two clips captured by Steve Belinksi:
