Ween :: 07.12.17 :: Red Rocks :: Morrison, CO
New Hope rockers Ween made their triumphant return to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado for the first time in nearly eight years on Wednesday night. While Ween has focused on their massive repertoire of originals since reuniting in 2015, they ended last night’s marathon 31-song main set with the debut of a Led Zeppelin cover.
Guitarists Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo and Aaron “Gene Ween” Freeman, bassist Dave Dreiwitz, drummer Claude Coleman Jr. and keyboardist Glenn McClelland fit a whopping seven songs from The Mollusk, an album which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, into Ween’s Red Rocks return. The band mixed staples such as “Take Me Away,” “Transdermal Celebration,” “Happy Colored Marbles” and “The HIV Song” with more rare material including “Frank,” “Beacon Light” and “Help Me Scrape The Mucas Off My Brain.” For the finale of the main set, Ween presented a spot-on rendition of “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin to the delight of the crowd. The band then returned for an encore of “Polka Dot Tail,” “Someday” and “Fluffy.” Check out photographer Jeremy Williams’ images from the show:
