Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds wrapped up their destination event in Riviera Maya, Mexico, on Sunday night, offering their third and final performance of the weekend and welcoming a few special guests for the occasion, including Warren Haynes and Brandi Carlile for multiple songs each.
The evening kicked off with “Don’t Drink the Water” and featured other Dave Matthews Band staples like “Crash Into Me” and “Lover Lay Down” before the guitar duo once again welcomed out flutist/saxophonist Carlos Malta to help out on “One Sweet World” and “Typical Situation.” Malta also stuck around for some improvisation with Reynolds.
Next up was Carlile, who emerged to guest on a run of three tunes, starting with “Come Tomorrow,” the title track on DMB’s latest album that also features Carlile on the studio version. The singer-songwriter also lended her vocals to “Spoon” and her own (Grammy-winning) cut “The Joke,” which was a debut cover for Matthews.
Two songs later, Matthews and Reynolds welcomed out the final guest of their Mexico stint, as Haynes came out for two expansive covers, first Neil Young’s “Cortez the Killer” and then a set-closing rendition of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.” Matthews also sat in with Haynes during his set earlier in the day, helping out on “Forsaken Savior” the Gov’t Mule cut from their 2013 album Shout!, which featured a version of the song with Matthews on vocals.
See last night’s full setlist below. Matthews and Reynolds will get back on the road with DMB next month with a run of European dates. See the band’s full schedule here.
