Tedeschi Trucks Band’s annual Wheels of Soul tour rolled on on Tuesday night with another sit in from members of opening band Blackberry Smoke, TTB’s tour mates for the summer along with Shovels & Rope.
After kicking off the tour with some shows in their home state of Florida the weekend before last, all of which featured guest spots from Blackberry Smoke guitarist Charlie Starr, the collaborations continued in Simpsonville, SC, and Charlotte, NC, with Starr joining TTB each night for covers of Charles Segar’s “Key to the Highway” and Leon Russell’s “Stranger in a Strange Land,” respectively.
Last night’s performance doubled up on the guests and songs, as Starr emerged to kick off the encore with “Key” and also stuck around for “Stranger,” which also featured Blackberry Smoke drummer Brit Turner, to close the show.
Check out last night’s setlist below. Tedeschi Trucks Band, Blackberry Smoke and Shovels & Rope continue the Wheels of Soul Tour tonight in Philadelphia. TTB have also announced that their previously scheduled show at Charleston, SC’s Volvo Car Stadium, originally set for July 5 (and postponed due to severe weather), had been rescheduled for Aug. 4.
