Umphrey’s McGee wrapped their two-night run at Harrah’s Cherokee Center in Asheville, NC on Saturday, where the rock band was joined in support by Billy Strings and Empire Strikes Brass. The latest stop on Umphrey’s Hindsight 20/20 Tour saw the band welcome both Strings and Empire Strikes Brass during their headlining performance.
Strings took the stage for his own performance following a warm-up set from Empire Strikes Brass. The folk-rock guitarist treated his fans in attendance to originals including “Turmoil & Tinfoil”, “Everything’s The Same”, and “Meet Me at the Creek”, in addition to covers of William “Billy” Hayes‘ “‘l’ll Remember You, Love, in My Prayers” and Pearl Jam‘s “In Hiding”.
Umphrey’s’ own two-set performance on Saturday included “October Rain”, “Roctopus”, “The Silent Type”, “Made to Measure” and more during the first set. The band then welcomed members of Empire Strikes Brass to join them for set-closing renditions of “National Loser Anthem” and “Bad Friday”. The second half of the show saw Umphrey’s deliver “Dark Brush” and “Dump City” before they welcomed Strings to the stage to tear through Jimi Hendrix‘s “Voodoo Child” before continuing the set with “Night Nurse”, “Pay the Snucka”, and “Bridgeless”.
