Warren Haynes Joins Grace Potter For "Gimme Shelter"
Warren Haynes joined Grace Potter & the Nocturnals for a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” last night at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. Haynes made his surprise appearance during the last song before the encore break. In addition to the Stones cover, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals also did renditions of Heart’s “Crazy On You” and Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” as well as a crowd pleasing tease of Neil Young’s “Cortez the Killer” during an acoustic “Falling or Flying.” The show was the second of the band’s two night run at the Beacon Theatre.

Haynes will be returning to the Beacon Theatre in New York City for Gov’t Mule’s New Year’s Eve shows December 30-31.
