On Sunday night, Umphrey’s McGee rounded out their four-night southeastern run with a performance at Wilmington, NC’s Greenfield Lake Amphitheater.
Umphrey’s McGee opened up their first set with “Nipple Trix” before smoothly sailing into “August”, led by Brendan Bayliss on vocals. Following “No Diablo”, the sextet worked through an exploratory “Attachments”, which was left open-ended. The biggest surprise of the evening came next as the band dove into a cover of Wilco‘s “Handshake Drugs”, a tune off of their beloved 2002 Yankee Foxtrot Hotel LP. UM continued on with “The Floor”, “You & You Alone”, and a set-closing “Draconian”.
Following a brief setbreak, the band returned to open their second set with “Maybe Someday”, a tune off of the band’s 2018 it’s not us release. Umphrey’s moved forward with “Syncopated Strangers” before sandwiching “End Of The Road” and a cover of The New Deal’s “Home” in between a massive “Wappy Sprayberry”. Played by the band for only the second time ever, “Home” was last played on April 2nd, 2014, a gap of 513 shows. The end of “Wappy” coasted back into Wilco’s Handshake Drugs”, which was followed up by the proper ending of “Attachments”. The sandwiches kept coming as Umphrey’s tossed Pearl Jam‘s “Release” in between a soaring “Ocean Billy”. A cover of Bob Seger’s “Hollywood Nights” brought the exceptional set to a close.
The band returned to deliver one last sandwich of the night for the encore as they placed Bruce Springteen‘s “I’m On Fire” in between “Resolution”.
Next up for the band is a performance at The Signal in Chattanooga, TN on Thursday, August 22nd. Head to Umphrey’s McGee’s website for a full list of the band’s upcoming tour dates, ticketing, and more information.
