Bob Weir and John Doe Help Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Bob Dylan Close AmericanaramA

The traveling AmericanaramA tour came to a close at Mountain View, CA’s Shoreline Amphitheatre last night. The evening featured performances by Bob Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham. Bob Weir, who took part in the first few AmericanaramA dates, made surprise appearances with both Wilco and My Morning Jacket. X frontman John Doe also made a cameo during Wilco’s set.

My Morning Jacket opened their show with “Circuital,” one of their most played songs all summer, and moved into “The Way That He Sings,” “Off the Record” and “Golden.” Then, Weir emerged for a cover of Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” the Grateful Dead-adopted “I Know You Rider” and “Brown-Eyed Women.” Weir returned a few songs later along with Bingham and his band for a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” (MMJ have covered Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” a few times this summer; MMJ leader Jim James has been on a Springsteen kick since seeing the Boss last year). Bingham remained onstage for a song he has regularly performed with My Morning Jacket this summer, “Don’t Do It.”

As expected, Wilco offered the evening’s most eclectic setlist. They ran through a few of their own songs first—“Via Chicago,” “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” and “Art of Almost”—and brought Bingham’s fiddler Richard Bowden out for “Passenger Side” and “Forget the Flowers.” After “Born Alone,” John Doe took the stage for a version of his X classic, “The New World.” Weir returned to the stage for a few songs he played with Wilco earlier on the tour: “Ripple” and a fusion of the Grateful Dead’s “Dark Star” and the Woody Guthrie/Wilco hybrid “California Stars.” He also helped Wilco through their first cover of the Dead’s “St. Stephen.” Then, the members of My Morning Jacket and Bingham’s band took the stage with Weir and Wilco for a cover of Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece.”

In many ways, the all-star Dylan cover served as the tour’s official finale. Though Dylan invited James and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy onstage for a few songs during the course of the AmericanaramA tour, his set remained guest-free last night. Colin Linden played lead guitar throughout Dylan’s set.

was there…epic performance by all performers across the board. Dylan can’t really sing, but whatever. He’s got the crowd and his band was smokin hot. Both MMJ and Wilco were amazing and it really did seem like they were sad to stop touring…
