Dead and Company, ramping up for their summer tour, hit the Jimmy Kimmel show last night for a extensive (for TV) set. Watch the full set (with a partial Althea performance) in this playlist. Hats off to Kimmel for hosting the Dead and giving them the space to jam. Unfortunately the pro-shot footage that Kimmel hosted on his channel breaks apart the songs, including the transition in Scar>Fire. Boo.
Dead and Company went outside the studio and played the set outdoors to a pretty decent sized crowd. From the sound of this set, the band is firing on all cylinders and we are going to be for a great summer tour!
For those of you keeping score, here is the full set:
Scarlet Begonias>Fire On The Mountain
Not Fade Away
Not only are Dead & Co. gelling on stage, but it looks like they are having a good time offstage as well.
