On Tuesday night, Tedeschi Trucks Band rolled into the beloved Saratoga Performing Arts Center in New York with The Marcus King Band and Drive-By Truckers for the fourth stop on their 2018 Wheels of Soul tour, following shows in Jacksonville, Tuscaloosa, and Charleston. While the previous two tour stops saw collaborations from both support acts and their headlining hosts, the SPAC show marked the first to welcome special guests from outside the tour’s billing.
One of the greater parts about the annual Wheels of Soul tour is the freedom it allows for Tedeschi Trucks Band to explore: TTB decides who they want on the road, they show everyone why with stand-out sit-ins across all three sets, and both the artists and the fans benefit from the pristine interactions. So, on the night before July 4th, it’s no wonder TTB welcomed out some more friends to celebrate. Following sit-ins from Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood on Wings‘ “Let Me Roll” and Marcus King on Charles Segar‘s “Key to the Highway”, frequent collaborators Eric Krasno (Lettuce/Soulive) and Tash Neal (The London Souls) joined the twelve-piece ensemble for a rocking “Statesboro Blues” to close out the night.
