Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir & Phil Lesh played Chicago Theatre (pics)
Founding Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh continued their first ever duo tour, which kicked off at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, over two nights at Chicago Theatre. We caught the Saturday (3/10) show, which you can find pictures of in the gallery above.
Jambase was there, and they write:
Throughout the tour, Weir and Lesh have played as a duo, trio, quartet and quintet. Last night the pair had their biggest lineup yet as they expanded to a sextet as Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams returned for a third night along with Jeff Chimenti who emerged to play the piano that had been sitting out on the stage since the start of the show. The current Dead & Company keyboardist is no stranger to the Grateful Dead songbook as he’s had a longstanding history of playing with Weir that dates back to the late-1990s when he became a full-time member of Ratdog. Chimenti also logged time playing alongside Lesh as a member of Furthur and was also tapped to be in the lineup for the Fare Thee Well shows.
Jambase also has full show audio from Sunday’s Chicago Theatre show.
