Dead Tour Opens In Greensboro

The Dead began their spring tour last night in Greensboro at the

Coliseum. The group opened with a fitting ‘Music Never Stopped’ and delivered
two sets of fully-segued music. Vocals were shared by Bob
Weir, Phil Lesh and Warren Haynes. Weir
led the group through such songs as ‘Jack Straw,’ ‘Estimated Prophet,’ ‘I Need A Miracle’ and
‘Truckin’,’ while Haynes sang on ‘Touch of Grey,’ ‘Shakedown Street,’
‘All Along The Watchtower’ and ‘Caution.’ Lesh mostly contributed bass
and harmony vocals although he did deliver lead vocals on ‘New Potato
Caboose.’ Also of note was the Rhythm Devils sequence that took place in
the second set after ‘Caution’ which began with Jeff Chimenti and Haynes
joining the drummers. Haynes and Chimenti then briefly dropped out
before returning later to help guide the band into ‘Cosmic Charlie.’ The
encore closed in fitting Sunday fashion with ‘Samson and Delilah.’ The
Dead will next appear at Washington D.C.‘s Verizon Center on Tuesday.
