first_imgBob Weir kicked off his Campfire Tour last night in San Rafael, California. The show, which took place at Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium, featured a hodgepodge of fan-favorite Dead songs, as well as several tracks from his recently-released album Blue Mountain. The show kicked off with the Grateful Dead guitarist delivering a solo acoustic rendition of the album’s title track, before the band, which features Steve Kimock, brothers and members of The National Bryan and Scott Devendorf, Jon Shaw, and the album’s producer Josh Kaufman, took the stage for the remainder of the show.Set one focused on mostly material from the new album, with “Only a River”, “Lay My Lily down”, “Whatever Happened to Rose”, and more leading the charge, before the band busted out the Dead’s “He’s Gone”. “He’s Gone” was followed by the appropriately titled “Gonesville”, making for a great pairing of tunes while bringing the set to a close.Set two featured a much heavier variety of Grateful Dead material, opening with a rocking “Althea”, before the band launched into a great version of “Me and My Uncle”. What followed was a show-closing sequence that started with “Playing in the Band”, transitioned into “The Other One”, followed by “Looks Like Rain”, and finally a reprise of “Playing In The Band” that brought the house down.The encore featured another Blue Mountain track with “Ki-Yi Bossie”, before the band brought things to a close with great versions of Merle Haggard‘s “Mama Tried” and the emotional “Ripple”.Weir returns to the stage tonight in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theatre.
