Dave Matthews Joins Blue Man Group

Last night Dave Matthews performed an eight song solo acoustic set at New York City’s Astor Place Theatre. His performance included his first-known version of Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade of Pale.” The occasion was the 20th anniversary celebration of Blue Man Group and a benefit for the BMG’s Blue School. The original Blue Man Group trio of Chris Wink, Philip Stanton and Matt Goldman then reunited for a performance following Matthews set and later invited him out for “Little Thing” and “Sing Along.” Matthews first joined Blue Man Group for “Sing Along” on the 2003 album The Complex.

Here’s the setlist, as drawn from our Box Scores section

Whiter Shade of Pale is a Procul Harum song; it’s not by the Moody Blues.

The only version of “whiter shade..” that I knew of is by Procol Harum.
