I know! I was worried about El Paso too but he nailed it, he stood up and everything! Of course he botched other lyrics but not El Paso.

Yes, Bobby stood for El Paso. In my humble opinion, that's when things really got going. He nailed the entire piece, hitting some highs that he missed in Bombs Away. Still loved to hear Bombs-love heaven help the fool album.

All in all, a truly grate nite and so happy to be a part of it.

he slows El Paso down quite a bit but judging by the stream it sounded good... he nailed it in Pittsfield to, was about the same pace.

Adding to my review....

share.shutterfly.com/share/received/welc...p;sid=0CbN2LNu0YtXJw

Pictures at the above link; only a couple are keepers and where I was sitting, Bob’s mic was in the way.

Fun show, sweet seats thanks to GDTS. Jackie asked us to have Bobby tell us a joke, didn't happen. He also said it is a lot of fun to tour with Bob. Played every instrument he brought in his set. Took a hit from an oxygen tank half way through his set because “We are so high.” This guy really brings it. No break between Jackie and Bobby.

Bob gaffed the first couple tunes, looking to the heavens for inspiration about the next verse or redoing a lick till it was nailed. He was definitely having fun. I thought he was going to start the third tune by saying “Here's one I know".... Bombs Away got the show kicked into gear, and his voice sounded real good, especially on El Paso. Nailing the highs. I was impressed. Bob really does have good guitar skills ta boot.

Before the Winners he talked about how some of the lyrics came from Rudyard Kipling, and that we should check out his stuff because “He is way cool.”

Had to use Corinna as a pee break. Hard Rain was the highlight of the night for me, but then again, I got lit during my pee break.

Real short set break and the hallway was jammed. Bet half the folks missed most of the second set in the bathroom or bar lines.

Don’t know what kind of guitar Bob busted out for the last part of the set but it was loud and funky. Sound down low was perfect. Kind of a pain being near the aisle as the ushers are hyper vigilant about all the people coming down to take pictures etc. Kept coming over and complaining that the guy next to me was filming. Hey, can you tell him to stop? Last show I went to here (Winwood) they told the yakers to STFU, which I was totally cool with.

Show started couple minutes early, one short break, and 11 pm cutoff, so about 2:40 worth of tunes. Crowd demanding more and doing the NFA chant even with the lights up. Roadies came out to break down the gear and that ended it.Great show over all and I’d go again if they were playing tonight!

Review By Candace Horgan from Reverb

121312.jpg


“Something wasn’t right,” Bob Weir said Thursday night after he muffed the lyrics during his opening song, a jaunty “The Music Never Stopped.” The cagey, veteran performer quickly recovered, and finished the song with no further mishaps. Of course, the adoring crowd ate it up, and screamed for more, not caring for perfection, which has never been what the Grateful Dead and its many offshoots have been about.

Over the course of the two sets at the Paramount Theater, Weir entertained the faithful in fine fashion. The second set was played with opener Jackie Greene, who has become a favorite of Deadheads over the last year, due to his playing with Weir and also with Phil Lesh and Friends.

If there was any sort of theme to the evening, it might have been Bob Dylan songs. Weir dropped in three Dylan covers during his two sets, and Greene debuted a fine version of “4th Time Around” during his set, singing in almost pitch-perfect Dylan style.

Hearing acoustic reworkings of many Dead faves can be a treat, especially if you don’t bring in expectations of how things should sound. Weir’s take on the classic “El Paso” brought the crowd to its feet early in the first set.

Weir’s guitar playing has often been criticized by fans of the cult of Jerry Garcia, but as he demonstrated on Thursday night, he is a capable player in his own right. His guitar work on “Peggy-O” was almost enough to offset the rather scratchy and rough singing, which really didn’t go over well on the folk standard.

The quality of the first set dropped with Weir’s song “Corina,” which dragged on too long, but Weir did find a groove again on the set-closing “Not Fade Away,” slowly fading out his guitar playing and letting the crowd sing the anthemic chorus.

The show really took off when Jackie Greene sat in for the second set, and it proved that Weir benefits from having a foil to play off of, someone who can rein his tendency toward excess back in.

After the third Dylan song of the show, a solid “All Along the Watchtower,” Greene’s guitar solos found a perfect backdrop in Weir’s rhythm playing on the classic Garcia tune “West L.A. Fadeaway.” Green switched to banjo for “Bird Song,” playing some of the same lines as Garcia used to in his solo, but using a rolling fingerpicking style to great effect at on a long jam.

Weir brought things full circle at the end, as out of a jam on a cover of Delbert McClinton’s “Standing on Shaky Ground,” he returned to “Not Fade Away” and closed with the second verse of the song. After he and Jackie took a quick bow, they left the stage and the house lights came back on, leaving the fans without an encore to go home to.

Lots more cool pictures from the show here
