Bob Weir and The Avett Brothers Cover the Grateful Dead at Red Rocks

Bob Weir & RatDog opened up for The Avett Brothers at Morrison, CO’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and both parties traded collaborations throughout the night. Members of the Avetts joined RatDog for one song, “Franklin’s Tower,” which closed the set.

During The Avett’s headlining set, they invited the guitarist out for a trio of songs including “Going Down the Road Feeling Bad,” “Little Sadie” and “Uncle John’s Band.” Watch a video of “Going Down the Road” above.

Weir previously joined the Avetts during their set at Mountain Jam earlier in June for a take on George Jones’ “The Race is On” as well as “Go To Sleep.”
