As 2016 made way to 2017, stages across the landscape paid tribute to the year of the fallen musician. Covers from Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, George Michael were as common as a band original during many NYE performances, In many ways this New Years can be taken as both a celebration for the end and mourning for what it was. At least we had bands, bands and more bands filling out the calendar on this live music holiday as Govt Mule, Widespread Panic and others performed some of their most memorable shows ever during this night of “Auld Lang Syne.” Lets check out all the setlists and the highlights from the other night….
