Yesterday (November 27), the legendary Bob Weir sat down with CBS to discuss his recent work and what his future holds. Weir is coming off of a completely sold-out run of shows at the Kennedy Center where he and his band Wolf Bros teamed up with the National Symphony Orchestra for an extensive deep dive into Weir’s songbook. During his interview with John Blackstone, Weir announced that the band is heading down south to Atlanta for a similar orchestral approach to live rock with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in February.
The Atlanta run will feature a new setlist every night with songs from Weir’s solo catalog along with cuts from the Grateful Dead discography. When asked about performing songs written by his late, great bandmate Jerry Garcia, Weir became sentimental. “He left some unfinished business”, says Weir, “I’m going to do my best to tidy some stuff up for him”.
