Dead & Company on Saturday headed to Bristow, VA for their final performance at Jiffy Lube Live, a frequent tour stop throughout the band’s eight-year tenure. In Bristow, the Grateful Dead offshoot featuring Bob Weir, John Mayer, Mickey Hart, Oteil Burbridge, Jeff Chimenti, and Jay Lane dug into the Dead’s deep bag of tricks to pull out a number of songs not yet played on the band’s The Final Tour.
After beginning the show with “Here Comes Sunshine”, “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo”, “Mr. Charlie”, “He’s Gone”, and “Brown-Eyed Women”, Dead & Company started up the stream of 2023 debuts with a set-closing pairing of The Beatles‘ “Dear Prudence” and Bobby “Blue” Bland‘s “Turn On Your Love Light”.
Set two got going with a seamless swing through “Deal”, “Scarlet Begonias”, “Playing In The Band”, “Cumberland Blues”, and “Uncle John’s Band” ahead of “Drums”/”Space”. The remainder of the set from there was comprised entirely of 2023 debuts, from the Miles Davis “Milestones” jam out of “Space” to the ensuing takes on “Days Between”, “Throwing Stones”, and “One More Saturday Night”. The show finally came to a close with a sing-along “Ripple” encore.
Dead & Company’s The Final Tour continues on Monday, June 5th at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, PA. For a complete list of upcoming Dead & Co shows, head here. Scroll down to check out the setlist and a selection of videos from Saturday’s Bristow, VA show.
