Over the weekend, Umphrey’s McGee rolled through Utah and Colorado for a series of performances with opening act Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country. On Thursday, the Midwest-bred act appeared at Salt Lake City, UT’s Red Butte Garden, and invited out Donato for a take on their Death By Stereo tune “Booth Love.” The following night, the run rolled into Vail, CO’s Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and Donato emerged once again, this time with Cosmic Country drummer Will Clark, for a rendition of “Cemetery Walk II” at the end of Umphrey’s McGee’s first set.

Then, on Saturday, Umphrey’s McGee headlined Morrison, CO’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Donato and Cosmic Country kicked off the festivities and Cory Wong supplied direct support duties for Umphrey’s. Near the end of Umphrey’s McGee’s first set, Clark, Wong and his drummer Petar Janjic all joined the evening’s headliners for a guest-heavy “Night Nurse.” After the song’s conclusion, Wong remained onstage as Donato sat in on a set-closing cover of David Bowie’s “Golden Years.” It was the first time Umphrey’s McGee had taken on the song since March 10, 2017.

Umphrey’s McGee will perform next at Sioux Falls, SD’s The District on Thursday.
