Bob Weir And Wolf Bros Weave “Dark Star” Throughout Second Set In Salt Lake City [Videos]

first_imgOn Friday, October 26th, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros continued their cross-country trek with a performance at Salt Lake City, Utah’s Eccles Theater. Bobby, drummer Jay Lane, and bassist Don Was kicked off the show with a first-set mix of Grateful Dead favorites (“Friend of the Devil”, “I Need A Miracle”, “Althea”, “West L.A. Fadeaway”), RatDog cuts (“Even So”, “October Queen”), and classic covers (“Good Morning, School Girl”, “Queen Jane Approximately”).Set two got significantly more interesting. After beginning with Little Feat‘s “Easy To Slip”, and Rob Wasserman‘s “Easy Answers”, Weir and company commenced their second “Dark Star” of the tour. As he’s made a habit of with Dead & Company, Bobby spread the “Dark Star” out amid interspersed song selections. This time, the first verse of “Dark Star” led into “Tennessee Jed”. “Jed” led back into a brief instrumental “Dark Star” interlude, which in turn shifted gears into “Cassidy”. From there, the band worked its way back into “Dark Star” for the song’s second verse before once again touching on “Cassidy” and, finally, landing in Bob Dylan‘s “All Along The Watchtower”. The band followed-up this complex segment with a heartfelt reading of The Beatles‘ “Dear Prudence” before finishing up with “Turn On Your Love Light” and encoring with their third Dylan song of the night, “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue”.You can watch a selection of fan-shot videos from Bob Weir and Wolf Bros’ Salt Lake City performance below:Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – “Good Morning, School Girl” [Sonny Boy Williamson cover][Video: malady]Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – “Friend of the Devil”[Video: malady]Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – “Althea” [Partial] Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – “Dear Prudence” [The Beatles cover, Partial] Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – “Tennessee Jed” [Partial] Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – “Dark Star” [Verse 1] View VideosBob Weir and Wolf Bros tour continues tonight, Saturday, October 27th, with a performance at Kiva Auditorium in Albuquerque, NM.
