John Mayer and Grateful Dead author Bob Weir brought the house down on Monday( Aug 8) when they took to the state at Pine Creek Lodge, in Livingston, Montana for an intimate open air aural guitar set.
The brace are more generally set up packing out parks and colosseums across the country with Dead & Company, but this performance under the trees was a special occasion.
It was the first of a triad of Rise for the River benefit shows listed by Mayer to raise plutocrat for those affected by June 13 flooding of the Yellowstone Swash, which damaged homes and impacted jobs across Park County, where Mayer has called home for over a decade. The flooding closed the entrance to the demesne, devastating an frugality that’s reliant on tourism, with hospices reporting that between 50 and 70 per cent of reservations have been canceled. Mayer and Weir opened with Friend of the Devil, taken from the Grateful Dead’s 1970 reader American Beauty, and played 13 tracks in total, including Dead classics similar as Bertha, Uncle John’s Band, Jack Straw, Terrapin Station, Eye of the World and a bravura run- through of Brown- Eyed Women.
