Big Something and Andy Frasco & The U.N. continued their Royal Rumble 2020 tour last night at The Basement East in Nashville, TN.
Andy Frasco & The U.N. started things off for Round One of last night’s royal rumble. In traditional Frasco fashion, the drinks started flowing from the first notes, treating the crowd to the typical Frasco party fans have come to expect. It wasn’t business as usual, however. A highlight of the set, and potentially the entire evening, occurred when they invited Billy Strings and Jesse Hensley (Big Something) to sit-in on a cover of Rush‘s “Tom Sawyer”. Guest announcer Kyle Ayers welcomed them to the stage for an electric performance.
Watch a fan-shot video of the sit-in below.

Big Something then took The Basement East stage for a set complete with originals, covers, and sit-ins galore. They kicked things off with a run through “Plug”, “Megalodon”, “Getaway”, and “Passenger” before “Waves” and “Tumbleweed”. Then, after the original “UFOs are Real”, the sextet performed a cover of AC/DC‘s “For Those About to Rock” with The U.N.’s Shawn Eckels sitting in on lead vocals and guitar.
After closing out their set with “Vibrations” and “Song for Us”, they returned for a two-song encore. All members of Andy Frasco & The U.N. joined in on “The Flood” and a cover of Peter Gabriel‘s “Sledgehammer”.
