Last evening at Furthur’s Capitol Theatre show, Bob Weir fell down during the performance and was assisted off stage. The incident took place late in the second set as the band played “Unbroken Chain.” Crew members helped Weir move over to the wings and Furthur continued the song. Weir had been experiencing issues throughout the night and during “Unbroken Chain” a chair had been provided for him. Then after a brief break the show resumed, with Lesh indicating that Weir had injured his shoulder in a workout. It is believed that the guitarist took a muscle relaxant which ultimately inhibited his performance. Following his departure the group closed out the run with a pass from “Stella Blue” into “China Cat Sunflower” and then “I Know You Rider” before a “Built To Last” encore.
John Kadlecik posted a few things about the incident earlier today.
