Ween wrapped up a three-night run at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas on Saturday. The band offered the first “Falling Out” since 2004 about halfway through their final set in Sin City.
Ween — guitarists/founders Aaron “Gene Ween” Freeman and Mickey “Dean Ween” Melchiondo, drummer Claude Coleman Jr., bassist Dave Dreiwitz and keyboardist Glenn McClelland — got things underway with “I’m Dancing In The Show Tonight.” The band filled the first half of the set with favorites like “Captain Fantasy,” “Transdermal Celebration,” “Happy Colored Marbles,” “I Don’t Want It,” “Did You See Me?” and “Chocolate Town” among others.
After “Chocolate Town,” Ween dusted off “Falling Out” for the first time since October 14, 2004 in Santa Cruz, California for a total gap of 319 shows, as per Brownbase. The Vegas ‘23 “Falling Out” also marked just the fifth appearance for the White Pepper (2000) cut. Alongside the song’s scathing subject matter about two relationships between “lovers” and a “brother” figure ending, “Falling Out” also carries the Vegas-appropriate line “The cards are up, the chips are all cashed in.”
Additionally, Saturday night in Las Vegas also saw Ween breaking out “LMLYP” for the first time since November 27, 2016 at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York for a total gap of 114 shows. Ween wrapped up the main set with “Tender Situation.” The three-song encore consisted of “The Mollusk”, “It’s Gonna Be a Long Night” and “Buenas Tardes Amigo.”
