STS9 and Umphrey’s McGee Collaborate During Tour Opener
Umphrey’s McGee and STS9 kicked off their co-headlining tour at Louisville, KY’s Palace Theatre last night. The two acts will alternate closing duties throughout their joint run while Up Until Now will provide support duties.
Umphrey’s McGee played first yesterday and opened their show with a run from “Push the Pig” into “1348” and “2×2.” Their show climaxed with another extended segue from “Triple Wide” into a jam based around Blue Oyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” “Triple Wide” and “1348.” The cover, which was a live debut, was played in honor of Blue Oyster Cult co-founder Allen Lanier, who passed away on Wednesday.
While STS9’s 2008 co-headlining tour with Umphrey’s McGee was
was noticeably short on sit ins, members of the two bands collaborated last night. During STS9’s encore, Umphrey’s McGee guitarist Jake Cinninger emerged for a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil.”
The tour continues at Indianapolis, IN’s Lawn at White River State Park this evening.
