Tedeschi Trucks Band returned to the Beacon Theatre stage in New York City last night for the fourth installment in their current six-show run at the venue, and the band filled the evening with a parade of all-star guests.The show marked TTB’s 25th appearance at the Beacon since their first stop at the famed venue in 2011.
After beginning the performance with some of their live staples, TTB kicked off the sit ins by welcoming past collaborator and guitarist Doyle Bramhall II up for a run of four tunes, “All the World,” “Part of Me,” a cover of Johnny Watson’s “Lovin’ You” and Elmore James’ “The Sky Is Crying.”
Immediately after, Bramhall was swapped for Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, who helped the band run through Miles Davis’ “Ali” that led into their own “Let Me Get By.” Founding Allman Brothers Band drummer Jaimoe was then brought out for a cover of ABB’s “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More.” The guests for the set then rounded out with Norah Jones lending her vocals to a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “Love Has No Pride.”
Keeping with their traditional theme of welcoming their opening act for their headlining performance, TTB then played a three-song encore with guest guitarist Luther Dickinson, who’s Mississippi Allstars opened the show earlier in the evening. The collective ran through “Statesboro Blues,” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” and “Bound for Glory.”
See the full setlist below, along with some video highlights thanks to Sean Roche. Tedeschi Trucks Band return to the Beacon this Friday and Saturday, October 13–14, for their final two nights at the venue.
