On Saturday, Dave Matthews Band returned to The Gorge to continue their annual three-night Labor Day weekend run at the breathtaking George, WA venue. After Lettuce opened the show on Friday night, Saturday’s performance included an opening set by Gov’t Mule.

Following Mule’s performance, DMB dove into their set with “Louisiana Bayou” followed by a well-received “So Much To Say” > “Anyone Seen The Bridge” > “Too Much” segment. A pair of less frequently-played tunes followed in “You Never Know” and “Again and Again” before the audience sang along to a rendition of “Satellite”.

The first “Big Eyed Fish” since early July came next before segueing into an always-welcome “Bartender”. Fan-favorites “Warehouse” and “Can’t Stop” followed before the band took things down a notch for a tender “Grace Is Gone”.

From there, Dave Matthews Band jumped into one of their recent go-to covers, Peter Gabriel‘s “Sledgehammer”, before Dave issued a solo rendition of “Here On Out”. After “The Song That Jane Likes”, Matthews welcomed out Gov’t Mule guitarist Warren Haynes to assist on a rendition of Neil Young‘s “Cortez The Killer”.

This marked DMB’s second “Cortez The Killer” of the year, as well as the second time it featured a high-profile guest sit-in (Susan Tedeschi joined in for the cover in her native Jacksonville, FL on 5/1/19). This was also not the first time in the last year that Warren Haynes had joined Dave Matthews onstage. Back in December 2018, Haynes sat in with DMB at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where he played on both “Cortez The Killer” and the “Tripping Billies” that followed it. Watch a video of the Haynes/DMB collab at The Gorge below:

After Haynes made his exit, the band wrapped up their main set with “Lover Lay Down”, “Shake Me Like A Monkey”, and “Ants Marching” before encoring with “Pig” and “Grey Street”.
