Dead and Company started their two night run at historic Fenway Park in Boston last night. The special venue made for an oh-so special show. The boys treated Boston to one of their best shows of the tour.
John marked this historic by wearing what looked like a picnic blanket
Luckily John’s guitar playing was just as bold as his fashion sense. Mayer and the boys were on fire. This crew is turning out to be among the best post-Jerry ensembles we have ever seen. As Reddit user jaghutgathos said:
It took Bobby 20 years to get “his” band done proper. This is it. He’s out of Jerry’s shadow now. As leader of the band. Not just any band, but a smoking fucking band that can bring it night after night & brings freshness to the catalog.
Some of the highlights include a first set Help > Slip > Frank and the entire fricking second set.
