Last night, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros made their way to the newly opened The Fillmore at Harrah’s New Orleans for a Sunday performance in the Crescent City.
The trio—comprised of Bob Weir, Don Was, and Jay Lane—delivered two sets bookended by Grateful Dead favorites for their New Orleans crowd. First, the Wolf Bros used “The Music Never Stopped” as the bread in their first set sandwich. After opening with the Bob Weir/John Perry Barlow classic, the band worked through “Lay My Lily Down”, “Peggy-O”, Johnny Cash‘s “Big River”, RatDog favorites “Even So” and “October Queen”, and “Easy Answers” before making their way back to “The Music Never Stopped” for a set-closing reprise.

The band opened their second set with Kris Kristofferson‘s “Me and Bobby McGee”, which earned some appreciative cheers and applause from the local crowd with its “rode us all the way to New Orleans” line. From there, the Wolf Bros moved into “Playing In The Band”. The rest of the set flowed from there as the band embarked on a “Supplication” jam followed by “He’s Gone”, Howlin’ Wolf‘s “Smokestack Lightning”, The Beatles‘ “Tomorrow Never Knows”, “Passenger”, and “Stella Blue” before once again calling back to earlier in the set set with a “Playing In The Band” reprise. Finally, Weir, Was, and Lane returned to the stage for a sing-along “Touch of Grey” encore.
