Dead & Company Bring Summer Tour to Atlanta

Dead & Company continued their summer tour at Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta last night, and though the band halted their tour-opening streak of shows without any repeats in the setlist, they packed the night with some tour debuts—including a couple choice covers—and of course a number of Grateful Dead favorites.

Set one kicked off with the New Orleans classic “Iko Iko,” followed by “I Need a Miracle” and Dead & Co.‘s recently debuted version of “Alabama Getaway.” The set also included Dead staples “West L.A. Fadeaway” and “Brown-Eyed Women” and closed with “Lost Sailor” and “Saint of Circumstance.”

The band returned to the stage for set two with “Here Comes Sunshine” before a run of Dead classics: “Eyes of the World,” “Althea,” “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire On the Mountain.” A “Drums” and “Space” segment then led into a rarer cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.” After a set-closing “Morning Dew,” the band wrapped up the show with a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.”

See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section, along with pro-shot video of the set openers. Dead & Company keep their tour rolling tonight with a show in Raleigh, NC.
