The Grateful Dead's 72-year-old bassist Phil Lesh returned to The Capitol Theatre for the first time since 1971 for a four-day run this past weekend.
Phil Lesh and Friends, singer/songwriter Jackie Greene, guitarist John Kadlecik, drummer Joe Russo and keyboardist Adam MacDougall, played some of the Dead's most loved and well-known songs and covered songs by the Beatle's, Eric Clapton and other blues and rock artists during the Nov. 15-18 shows.
Psychedelic projections of bubbles, tie dye, stars and other trippy images custom-designed to match the band's music covered The Cap's dome and walls throughout th show.
On Saturday, Nov. 17, Phil & Friends opened with "Alabama Getaway" and played mostly songs from the Dead's era, including a cover of Eric Clapton's "After Midnight."
The second set opened with a fast-paced New Orlean's classic "Iko, Iko," and included more classics like "Terrapin Station," and "Shakedown Street."
