STS9 Joins Umphrey’s McGee for David Bowie Cover in Chicago
STS9 and the Liquid Horns joined Umphrey’s McGee at Chicago’s FirstMerit Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island last night. The musicians emerged at the end of Umphrey’s McGee’s encore for
a cover of David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance.” The members of Umphrey’s McGee and STS9 have regularly collaborated since their co-headlining tour kicked off on Thursday night.
STS9 got some help from the Liquid Horns during their set as well. The horn section took the stage for takes on “Vibyl,” “Simulator,” “Be Nice” and “King Pharaoh’s Tomb.”
Umphrey’s McGee and STS9 will continue their joint tour tonight at the Meadowbrook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, MI.
