Last night marked the 32nd anniversary of John Lennon’s tragic death, so the Phil Lesh Quintet, aka The “Q”, paid tribute to the fallen Beatle at the end of the group’s third of four shows at Terrapin Crossroads. Phil Lesh, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Rob Barraco and John Molo treated fans to an interesting arrangement of The Beatles’ Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds as the lone encore.
The band also tipped their hat to Lennon’s Beatle band mate George Harrison by covering Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth) in the middle of the second set. The second set was a massive Help > Slip > Frank’s sandwich as Help On The Way > Slipknot! opened the closing stanza while Slipknot! > Franklin’s Tower finished it. In between was the band’s “single” Night of a Thousand Stars as well as the Harrison cover, the highly technical King Solomon’s Marbles and GD classics The Other One and Uncle John’s Band. For the first set, The “Q” stuck to Dead tunes with the exception of the Warren-sung Into The Mystic (Van Morrison).
