The Phil Lesh / Bob Weir-led Furthur kicked off a quick jaunt through the Tri-State Region last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City where they played the first of two shows at the venue.

The sextet tackled some of the more well-known material in the canon including Truckin’, Touch of Grey, The Other One and Scarlet > Fire. Furthur also took a stab at one of the more complex Dead tunes – King Solomon’s Marbles. For the band’s first few gigs, John Kadlecik didn’t sing all of the Jerry tunes and that was true again last night as Bobby either sang or shared lead vocals on Cosmic Charlie, He’s Gone, Touch of Grey, Days Between and Ramble On Rose. The former DSO “Jerry” did get to sing lead on Dire Wolf, Doin’ That Rag, Reuben and Cerise and Fire On The Mountain.
Let’s take a look at the setlist…
