Dead & Company passed the 100 show benchmark on Wednesday, June 20, serving up a number of covers and old favorites at Ohio’s Blossom Music Center.
The band opened set one with classic “disco Dead” tune “Feel Like A Stranger.” John Mayer then took the lead for “They Love Each Other,” followed by a thematically opposed “Used to Love Her” led by Bob Weir. The band closed the first half with the Fleetwood Mac-inspired “Passenger,” which could have been a nod to former FM guitarist Danny Kirwan, who passed on June 10.
Set two started off with the always-emotional pairing of “Lost Sailor”> “Saint of Circumstance.” The band also offered a nice “Scarlet”>“Fire” segment before diving into “Drums”>“Space”>“I Need A Miracle”>“Dear Prudence.”
Dead & Company closed their 100th show with the politically-minded “Throwing Stones,” and encored with Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.”
