Over the weekend, Marcus King took his current tour, which supports his sophomore album, Young Blood, to the House of Blues in Boston. The Sunday night show saw the Southern rocker welcome his opener, Neal Francis, on stage during the Sept. 11 encore, which consisted of a cover of The Beatles’ 1969 track “Hey Bulldog” and King’s original “The Well.”
King’s Bean Town performance featured several tracks off his latest release, including the night’s opening number, “It’s Too Late.” After dipping back in time with 2018’s “Virginia,” King returned to his Young Blood tracking list with “Hard Working Man” and “Whisper” before the artist worked in a number off El Dorado with “One Day She’s Here.”
Next, King and his band returned with “Blood on the Tracks” before covering Jimmy Cliff’s “Many Rivers to Cross.” “Blues Worse Than I Ever Had” landed next, before “Aim High” and “Young Man’s Dream.” Then, King ran through “Rescue Me” and “Trouble Man.” To follow, the band played “Pain” and “Good and Gone” before an epic drum solo opened “Wildflowers & Wine.” Finally, to cap the main set, they performed “Lie Lie Lie.”
The night’s encore began with solo acoustic “Goodbye Carolina” before the night’s opener, Neal Francis, descended upon the stage to assist King on a cover of The Beatles’ “Hey Bulldog” off their seminal 1969 album, Yellow Submarine. Then, to finish the night, Francis stuck around and helped the group with “The Well.” Watch a fan-shot video below.
