Bob Weir is Back in Form

Bob Weir returned to the stage with Furthur last night in Atlantic City, NJ and by all accounts he was in fine form. Following Thursday night’s show at the Capitol Theatre when he was forced to leave the stage late in the second set, reportedly due to complications associated with medicating a sore shoulder, Weir appeared to the resounding cheers of the audience at Boardwalk Hall. He then took a an active role from start as the show opened with “Jack Straw,” in which he shared vocals. He remained an active presence throughout the night, as if to demonstrate his health and vitality. The complete setlist appears below as drawn from the Box Scores section.

Furthur’s next performance is on May 9 at the BottleRock Napa Valley Festival.
