The String Cheese Incident brought their tour to Chastain Park in Atlanta, GA, last night for the first of two shows at the venue, and the band used the opportunity to honor an area legend in Gregg Allman, whose iconic band made their name starting down the road in Macon.
The tribute came near the end of the first set, following the first “Blue Bossa” since July 2015, when SCI ran through the Allman Brothers Band’s classic “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” one of the several songs that have been used to honor the late ABB founder in the wake of his passing. The night also featured two Peter Rowan covers, “Walls of Time” and “Midnight Moonlight,” a New Riders of the Purple Sage tune also adopted by Jerry Garcia, along with a encore-closing cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire.”
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section, along with full audio of the show taped by Dillon Fries. String Cheese return to the Chastain Park stage tonight for round two before their tour heads to Colorado’s Red Rocks for a three-night run starting July 21.
