By now, everyone should know that Bob Weir was in Tennessee last night. Just one night prior, the Grateful Dead guitarist appeared on stage for an extended performance with the jam band Phish, before making his way over to the Ryman for his scheduled stop on the “Campfire Tour.”
Weir has been on a tear of late. The guitarist spent the summer performing with Dead & Company, and followed that up with the release of his solo album Blue Mountain. He’s been on the road for the past couple of weeks, bringing along an all-star ensemble that includes Steve Kimock, Bryan Devendorf, Scott Devendorf, Josh Kaufman and Jon Shaw. Last night was no exception, as they played the penultimate stop on their fall tour at the famed Nashville theater.
With the band in Tennessee, naturally the performance called for a rendition of the classic “Tennessee Jed.” Watch a video of the song below, courtesy of YouTube user Bill Magee.
You can also watch the show-closing performance of “Ripple,” streaming below.
Weir will conclude his tour tonight, October 20th, in Chicago, IL. You can see the full setlist from last night’s performance, below.
