Death and Company at Burgettstown [Videos]

Death and Company Tuesday in the penultimate leg of their summer 2022 tour with a show at The Star Lake Pavilion. The Grateful Dead Offshoot’s first performance at the Burgettstown, Pennsylvania location since 2017 was highlighted by a second set encompassing “Dark Star”.

Bill Kreutzmann stayed away from a positive COVID-19 test for Tuesday’s show, appealing to his understudy Jay Lane to fill in on drums as he did for much of the summer tour. Joined by Bob Weir, mickey hart, Burbridge eyeand Jeff Chimenti, Lane counted the group in the opening “The Music Never Stopped”. Dead & Company then fired him in 1970 while Mayer was conducting “Dire Wolf” The worker is dead and Weir retorted with “Friend of the Devil” from american beautyboth released that year.

The group performed their third version of “Foolish Heart”, the Built to last gem debuted on June 18 at the second of two Dead & Company shows in Boulder, CO. This concert at Folsom Field also marked Kreutzmann’s last full performance of the tour so far.

The back and forth between Bobby and JonBo continued as the pop star offered a slightly more upbeat love song with “They Love Each Other.” Out of the loving bounce of the Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter composition, Dead & Company shifted gears to the seedy belly anthem “West LA Fadeaway.” The In the dark cut and then paved the way for a closing couple of “Lost Sailor” and “Saint of Circumstance.”

Back for the second frame, Mayer belted Noah Lewis“Big Railroad Blues” in front of the improvised centerpiece of the second set, “Dark Star”. The Dead’s open opus selection, the fourth on the tour, arrived the same day NASA shared the first images of the James Webb Space Telescope. The group’s band spirit traveled to relatively remote regions of deep space before Weir, armed with an acoustic guitar, brought the jam for a close encounter with Marty Robin“The Paso”.

The vintage pairing led to the meat of the second set with a transition to “He’s Gone”. Dead & Company’s dependable improv vehicle served as the launch pad for fan-favorite “Eyes Of The World,” with Weir stripping his acoustics in favor of a Stratocaster as Burbridge provided the basis for the jam. After Mayer and Chimenti connected on the jazz-infused breakdown and after a final chorus, Weir, Mayer, Burbridge and Chimenti faded as Lane and Hart took over for “Drums”.

The traditional rhythm split saw Hart buzzing over the Beam before the rest of the band replaced “Space”. Keeping the intergalactic possibilities open, Dead & Company returned to the second verse of “Dark Star” to chart another journey of sonic exploration. Back to tangible form, Weir led the band through his 80s rocker “Hell in a Bucket” before the first performance of The Beatles“Dear Prudence” the whole tour. Without taking a rest, Dead & Company followed up with the patriotic “US Blues” banner to close the second set. Taking to the Pavilion stage at Star Lake once again, Weir and Mayer, dressed in acoustics, took the band through “Ripple” to close the show.
