Wilco Welcomes Garth Hudson At SPAC AmericanaramA Stop

The AmericanaramA tour moved on to Saratoga Performing Arts Center, aka SPAC, in Saratoga Springs, NY last night for performances by Ryan Bingham and tour headliners My Morning Jacket, Wilco and Bob Dylan. The big news from Sunday night’s show was legendary The Band keyboardist Garth Hudson and My Morning Jacket front man Jim James sitting in with Wilco.

Wilco continues to switch it up from night-to-night on the tour and their SPAC set was no exception. After opening up with Mermaid Avenue track “At My Window Sad And Lonely,” Jeff Tweedy and his band treated attendees to a mix of classics (“Poor Places,” “Handshake Drugs” and “Reservations”) and more recent material (“Bull Black Nova” and “Art Of Almost”) before bringing out Hudson seven songs into their set. Garth sat in with Wilco on “California Stars” and a cover of “Long Black Veil.” The keyboardist then delivered his trademark “Genetic Method” intro to a scorching take on The Band’s “Chest Fever” that also featured Jim James. Once their guests left the stage, the Chicago-based band reeled off a four-song string of “Born Alone,” “Impossible Germany,” “Walken” and “I’m The Man Who Loves You” to bring the set to a close.
