Tom Petty Wants To Play ‘Wildflowers’ In Its Entirety For A New Tour

first_imgThe beloved Tom Petty may be in the thick of a tour with his formative band Mudcrutch, but that hasn’t stopped him from eyeing the future. Come 2017, fans may get a chance to see Petty perform his seminal 1995 album Wildflowers in its entirety.I want to take the Heartbreakers and whoever else I need to reproduce every sound in a big way,” he said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “That album was really about sound in a big way. I would like to go out there and perform the entire album as it was originally conceived with all of the songs.”The album, which features hits like You Don’t Know How It Feels,” “You Wreck Me” and “It’s Good To Be King,” is due for an extensive re-release. As Petty explains it, “I think I put four of the [Wildflowers outtakes] on the She’s The One soundtrack just to fill out the album,” says Tom Petty. “But they were very hastily mixed. Take ‘Climb That Hill.’ There’s a version of that on She’s The One, but the Wildflowers one I think is extremely better. I’m gonna put that out. ‘Hung Up And Overdue’ is another one we remixed and it turned into an epic. I had Carl Wilson [of the Beach Boys] and [Heartbreakers bassist] Howie Epstein singing quite a bit of harmony that didn’t come through on the original. Then again, there’s probably six songs that nobody has heard. There’s 11 or 12 [new] songs on the album. I think people are going to like it a lot. I like it a lot.”The trick would be bringing a host of songs both old and new to the live setting. Petty has previously said that he wasn’t quite interested in doing full album shows, but recently saw The Rolling Stones’ perform a full interpretation of Sticky Fingers and thought they had something to say with it. “Single album concerts often don’t scan right for a concert,” he says. “But with the amount of material I have for the Wildflowers double album, I think I’ve got enough tempos and types of songs that I could do a live show … And it’ll be fun for the audience since there’s a bunch of songs they’ll know.”Right now the plans are far from concrete, but we can still keep our fingers crossed!last_img read more

Oteil Burbridge Talks Dead & Company, Allman Bros, Phil Lesh & More

first_imgBassist Oteil Burbridge has had a pretty epic career. Besides stepping into his role with the Allman Brothers Band years ago, to founding the Aquarium Rescue Unit, and now becoming a full-time member of Dead & Company with three original members of the Grateful Dead (Bob Weir, Billy Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart), along with guitar wonder John Mayer, Burbridge can hold it down with the best of them. There isn’t much arguing that.With Dead & Company tour having kicked off this past weekend at Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Burbridge sat down with Cincinnati.com for an interview to discuss a range of topics, from comparing bass playing for the Allmans to the Dead, stepping into Phil Lesh‘s proverbial shoes, to playing with a bona fide international superstar such as John Mayer.When asked about playing bass in the Allman’s as compared to the Dead, Burbridge responded, “With the Dead’s music, there’s just a wider range, and the Allman Brothers have a pretty frigging wide range of stuff they do. But there’s more long-form pieces in the Dead catalog. Solo sections will go through a lot more chord changes. They’ll go through the full form of the song. The Allman Brothers, there’s not nearly as much of that.  But I think the roles are essentially the same.”He was then asked about what he’s learned from listening to Phil Lesh. Burbridge responded, “I would say that I’m a lot more licensed to take really big chances with the Dead catalog because Phil set that precedent. There’s nothing I can do that’s too weird….Phil is always doing something different. Like if there’s a regular chord, he’ll substitute another bass note for that chord that is not the regular root of that chord, and there’s any number of choices for any number of those chords. I have to listen to five different versions just to figure out what the original bass note was supposed to be”.Burbridge then gave his thoughts on John Mayer.“I think he’s doing phenomenal. It’s really obvious that he loves the music. It’s something that you can’t fake, especially not for these fans. He’s either doing it, or he’s not. We would be crucified if it wasn’t happening, or at least run off stage. He had a lot more skill set that I realized guitar-playing-wise”.Tom Hamilton Announces Dead After Party With Marco Benevento, Oteil Burbridge & MoreBurbridge will play Citi Field with Dead & Company in New York on June 25th and 26th, as the band makes their way West to Boulder, CO for two shows at Folsom Field on July 2nd and 3rd. He will also play a special late-night show with Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, Marco Benevento and Grahame Lesh’s Midnight North post-Dead & Company on the 3rd at The Fox Theatre. That show has limited tickets available.[via Cincinnati.com]last_img read more

Metzger stepped up for a “Women Are Smarter” jam, which segued into an ever-psychedelic “China Cat Sunflower.” “Feel Like A Stranger” included an “Apache” (Jerry Lordan) tease, according to Box Score extraordinaire Costello. The first set continued with a “Mississippi Half Step,” “Lost Sailor,” and “Saint of Circumstance” which included a Terrapin Jam, hints of “Ruben & Cherise” and an obvious nod to The Beatles with an “Eleanor Rigby” tease. No one does Grateful Dead music in 2017 like Joe Russo’s Almost Dead.In the second set, the quintet returned with a “Greatest Story Ever Told,” with a “Black Throated Wind” jam, which you can watch below. The Grateful Dead song led into a striking cover of Led Zeppelin‘s “Moby Dick,” which had not been played since 4/22/15 and was left unfinished. For the first time ever, the Almost Dead played “Music Never Stopped Reprise Reprise,” before busting out “Greatest Story Ever Told Reprise,” which hadn’t been played since 2/17/15.The band also debuted “Stella Blues Jam,” before heading into a special “He’s Gone” which featured teases of the Netflix original series Stranger Things. The themes continued during “The Wheel,” which heard the theme song from The Simpsons carefully mixed in. The second set ended with an electric “So Many Roads” and “Sugar Magnolia.”Joe Russo’s Almost Dead returned to the stage for “Ripple,” which hadn’t been played since 12/31/15, then “US Blues,” which, strikingly, hadn’t been played in 100 shows since 1/26/13.

13 Days Of Phishmas 2017: Baker’s Dozen Night 7, The “Cinnamon” Show

first_imgIn just 7 days, Phish will make their triumphant return to Madison Square Garden in New York City for their traditional 4-night New Year’s Run at the world’s most famous arena. To date, the band has played the storied midtown Manhattan room 52 times–usually surrounding New Year’s Eve–and among those 52 are some of the more exciting and memorable performances they’ve ever turned in. In 2016, we counted down the days until New Year’s Run with “The 12 Days Of Phishmas,” a festive collection of our favorite Phish shows at the Garden over the years. But that list was made before the Baker’s Dozen, Phish’s unprecedented run of 13 straight shows at MSG featuring nightly donut-based themes, surprise covers and bust-outs to cater the setlists to the flavor du jour and, oh yea, NO REPEATS, culminating with a “championship” banner being raised to The Garden’s rafters on a day officially designated as “Phish Day” by the Mayor of New York. The Dozen was a different kind of beast: It’s difficult to pick apart the individual shows and rank them among the band’s other 39 MSG performances because these 13 shows were so inextricably linked. Those 17 summer days in the City almost felt like one long show, and so it only felt right to extend this year’s Phishmas by an extra day and relive the Baker’s Dozen as a complete set–sampling one donut at a time, the same way it was originally tasted. By the time we’re done going back through the Baker’s Dozen spoils, we’ll all be primed and ready to add four more shows to the list, rounding out 17 in ’17–the biggest, baddest year of MSG Phish we’ve ever seen. Our Official Guide To Phish New Year’s Pre- And Post-PartiesWe’re now at the mid-point of our Baker’s Dozen Phishmas–the back half of the donut box. By this point, the secret was out: something very special was happening at The Garden. In the blink of an eye, each of the remaining shows–all of which had tickets available at the box office at the start of the run–were sold the f*ck out, and the horde of restless fingers in the air on 7th Avenue was steadily growing each night. Fans eagerly awaited the announcement of a new donut each morning, and made their calculated theme predictions for each successive show in kind. And with 6 shows down and not a repeat in sight, the list of songs still on the table grew shorter and shorter each night. In hindsight, the second half of the Baker’s Dozen was the most “predictable” stretch of shows Phish has ever played. More so than ever before, we went into those shows knowing loosely what to expect. But of course, that didn’t stop Phish from continuing to defy and exceed our expectations anyhow…So much fantastic ground already covered, yet still so much to come–the second half of the Dozen was uncharted territory in the Phish Universe, boldly going where no run had gone before. Come along, relive that (not so short) trip with us, and remember that euphoric feeling of being in the thick of the Baker’s Dozen. Merry Phishmas to all!NIGHT 7: Cinnamon7/29/17Review by Sam Berenson As Phish’s 13-Night “Baker’s Dozen” run rolls on at Madison Square Garden, the question of what will be played–and what sort of outlandish covers will be busted out–has begun to embody the majority of the pre-show chatter each night outside of the World’s Most Famous Arena. At this point in the game, there is zero doubt in any fan’s mind that this is the pinnacle of Phish; an historic summer that will be discussed for years and decades to come. While Friday night’s “Double-Chocolate”-themed show (while still “miraculous” at times) may have showed a few signs of fatigue, the band came out in full force for Saturday’s “Cinnamon Glazed” gala and glazed on in dignified fashion. Mirroring the words and beautifully chaotic essence of Woodstock, an announcement rang over the PA throughout the arena pre-show; “WARNING, DO NOT EAT THE BROWN DONUTS!”Although we all love our a cappella openers and having our four favorites huddled at the front of the stage, it was a pleasant surprise to see the band hold their positions on stage and jump straight into an enormous “Llama” opener, marking only the second Gamehendge bust-out of the tour. Before the bouncing arena could catch their breath, Trey Anastasio kicked things up a notch with the infamous “duhhhh duhhh, duhhh duhhh” guitar intro, continuing along the path to the land of Lizards with “Wilson,” which garnered some brief but interesting improv.Just as “Wilson” came to a halt, the band powered through a standard “Stealing Time from the Faulty Plan,” with Mike Gordon hammering away on his Modulus as the band patiently worked their way through what’s become a favored heavy hitter off of 2009’s Joy. With Gordon once again keeping things rolling and taking charge, the band hopped into a bubbly “Ya Mar”, telling everyone what “IT” is; this crazy show of life that we’ve all gotten the gracious invite to.Next up was “Tela”–as if night 7 wasn’t already spoiled enough with first-set Gamehendge tunes. With Page McConnell leading the way, the wind from beyond the mountain swept across the Garden, and the second Saturday of Baker’s Dozen provided no time for “piss breaks” or chitter-chatter between jams.As the beauteous closing lyrics rang throughout the arena, McConnell took a stand and started up the sample for “The Birds” from the Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House, making a statement that the boys from Vermont are here to attack, and there is absolutely no turning back. A quick run through “The Line” and “Water in the Sky” gave fans a brief moment to catch their breath, and out of nowhere “Vultures” came moving in from the depths of the Phish catalogue for the song’s first appearance of the year.A blissful “Train Song” followed, with Phish showcasing their tear-jerking harmonies over the relative rarity, before effortlessly flowing into “Horn.” Finally, the band brought the first set to a close with a rare and thrilling cover of The Beatles‘ “I Am the Walrus,” making just its fourth-ever Phish appearance. As a beautiful Saturday first-set came to a close, it was hard to ignore a major theme of the set, ANIMALS! Whether Phish thinks we’re a bunch of animals for following this grandiose journey, or the City has turned into a zoo, this wild ride shows no signs of slowing down.Watch fan-shot footage of the end of “I Am The Warus” below via YouTube user monihampton:Phish returned from the break with a set-opening “Blaze On,” marking yet another 20+ minute jam that will go down one of the best versions to date. The band took their time to patiently navigate through an adventurous and groovy rendition of the song, reaching multiple fiery hot peaks and resoundingly claiming its crown as the jam of the night. Trey Anastasio let it all hang out as lighting designer Chris Kuroda continued to blow minds, tilting his moving light rig back and forth as Phish’s center of gravity tilted throughout the evening.Watch the second set-opening “Blaze On” below, courtesy of LivePhish:Next, Phish glazed on into a powerfully dark “Twenty Years Later,” allowing Jon Fishman to take the lead as he crashed on his cymbals before fizzling out into a bold and interestingly-placed set two “Alumni Blues”>”Letter to Jimmy Page”>”Alumni Blues.” With Trey belting out “I’m ALLLLLLRIGHT” as the band played follow the leader with “HE’S ALRIGHT,” Anastasio took an extended pause before the band brought the bouncy rager to a close.For the remainder of the set, Phish delivered one of the most elegant one-two punch combos yet of their perfectly planned and completely insane 13-night run at the Garden. An immaculate “Meastick” brought any fan sitting to their feet, and the band took the jam out for a walk, with screeching guitar solos accompanied by McConnell’s synth-heavy licks, before dropping into a poignantly powerful “Dirt” that left this particular fan with tears on his cheeks. “Harry Hood” continued the blissful track, bringing another mondo second set of Baker’s Dozen to a close. After a continuous pattern of “Mountain Jam” teases and jams, it would have been a crime wrong to not include that during the intro to “Hood”–but Trey dropped in a bold tease of the Allman Brothers classic that had the sold-out arena howling at the top of their lungs.For the encore, Phish turned to its second consecutive Neil Young cut in the encore slot, covering an appropriately-placed “Cinnamon Girl” for just the fourth time ever, and the first since 1997. The boys absolutely nailed it and continue to prove that there is nothing that can get in their way at this monumental moment in rock and roll history. If you are lucky enough and have a ticket in hand for the last six shows of Baker’s Dozen, tie your shoes up tight and get ready for what is sure to be an unimaginable peak of this golden age for Phish.Hot Takes From Night 7:REPEAT WATCH: Still no repeats and by this point in the run I think we can all agree that there will be NO repeats over the remaining six shows. Every song is getting taken out for the ride of its life and this trend will surely continue.TODAY’S DONUT: Cinnamon Glazed [“Don’t eat the brown donuts” PSA announcement from Woodstock movie; “Cinnamon Girl”]WE TIRED YET?: We’re heading into the Sunday of the run, and although the back and legs may have some aches, the best of the best is still yet to come!SETLIST:  Phish | Baker’s Dozen Night 7 | Madison Square Garden | New York, NY | 7/29/17SET 1: Llama, Wilson > Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan > Ya Mar, Tela, The Birds > The Line, Water in the Sky, Vultures, Train Song > Horn, I Am the WalrusSET 2: Blaze On > Twenty Years Later > Alumni Blues > Letter to Jimmy Page > Alumni Blues > Meatstick > Dirt > Harry HoodENCORE: Cinnamon GirlWe’ll see you back here tomorrow, as we continue to re-sample all the donuts on our way back to the Garden for New Year’s Run 2017-2018.
