Bob Weir Performs at United Nations Gala in New York

The United Nations Development Programme held a 50th anniversary celebration and Global Goals gala last night in New York City, and Bob Weir was on hand for a performance during the star-studded affair.

The night was hosted by New York Times bestselling author Padma Lakshmi and counted as guests some UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors like actresses Connie Britton and Michelle Yeoh and Norway’s Prince Haakon.

During the event, Weir took the stage to share a short set of songs, starting off with “Loose Lucy” and “Walkin’ Blues” before covering Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece” and closing with a run of “The Other One” into “Throwin’ Stones.”

Weir recently announced a 2017 tour schedule with Dead & Company, and the guitarist will also appear with his Campfire Boys at next year’s Wanee Festival.
