Blues Traveler hosted their annual 4th of July celebration at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Wednesday, offering a career-spanning collection of live favorites and cuts from their upcoming album Hurry Up & Hang Around (out October 12), plus a couple of sit ins from fellow acts on the bill G. Love and Duane Betts.
Along with classics like “Runaround,” “The Mountains Win Again” and “Hook,” John Popper and company also played Hurry Up & Hang Around tracks “Accelerated Nation,” “The Wolf is Bumpin’” and “Ode From the Aspect.” Near the end of the set, the host band brought out G. Love for a collaborative jam before welcoming Betts to the stage for “Carolina Blues.” Betts had played earlier with the Devon Allman Project, who helped open up the show along with G. Love and The Wailers.
