Tedeschi Trucks Band closed out their seven-night run at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night. As a fitting cap to the annual residency, the ensemble invited out Warren Haynes–Trucks’ fellow Allman Brothers Band guitarist and the musician who has performed at the Beacon Theatre the most–for a selection of songs.
Haynes emerged partway through TTB’s second set for a take on the Allman Brothers’ “Dream”–a tune the ABB guitarists often alternated solos on–and remained onstage for Tampa Red’s “It Hurts Me Too” and the Allmans’ “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.” (TTB opened their Beacon run with a pair of ABB setlist staples as well.) The guest guitarist then emerged for an encore rendition of The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends.” Not only did the tune feel apt given the guest-heady run, but it was also one of the tunes originally debuted during the LOCKN’ set captured on the new documentary Learning to Live Together: The Return Of Mad Dogs & Englishmen.
In other TTB Beacon news, on Friday another of the band’s close friends, Tash Neal, played guitar on Elmore James’s “The Sky Is Crying.” TTB will kick off their next run November 10 at Orland, FL’s Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
