Dead & Company wrapped up a two-night stand at Citi Field in Queens, NY, on Saturday night, and the band continued to dig into the extensive Grateful Dead catalog to offer their debut of “The Eleven” during the second set.
After a first frame that kicked off with “Sugar Magnolia” and featured staples like “Bertha” and a “New Speedway Boogie” fit between two sections of “Bird Song,” set two opened with “Help On the Way” into “Slipknot!” and “Franklin’s Tower.” Dead & Co. then went into the live favorite “St. Stephen,” eventually using the “William Tell Bridge” to make their way into their live debut of “The Eleven,” which lead into “Space” and the set-closing run. The night later ended with the timely “One More Saturday Night.”
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section, along with video of “The Eleven” above. Dead and Company keep their summer tour rolling tomorrow night in Darien Center, NY.
