This weekend, Tedeschi Trucks Band capped off their annual Wheels of Soul Tour—which featured tour mates The Marcus King Band and Drive-By Truckers this year—with a two-night stand at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The collaborative tour always features a number of sit ins during TTB’s headlining sets, and the last two nights were no different.
On Saturday night, Tedeschi Trucks continued their collaborations with the supporting acts, first welcoming Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley of Drive-By Truckers for Bob Dylan’s “Going, Going, Gone” before bringing up their bandmate Jay Gonzalez for The Coasters’ “Let’s Go Get Stoned.” Gonzalez returned for the encore-opener “High and Mighty” before Marcus King and his horn section of Justin Johnson and Dean Mitchell came out for a Sly and the Family Stone medley of “Sing a Simple Song” and “I Want to Take You Higher.”
The sit ins were somewhat swapped for night two on Sunday, with King, Johnson and Mitchell joining TTB during their set for Joe Tex’s “Show Me,” King helping out on a set-closing run of the Allman Brothers Band’s “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed,” and Hood and Cooley returning for the encore finale of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.”
Below, see the setlists from each night and video of both encores and the TTB/King “Liz Reed” collaboration. Tedeschi Trucks Band are off the road for a few weeks before playing the New York State Fair in Syracuse on August 23 and Virginia’s LOCKN’ Festival on August 25.
