CHANGE ROCKS - The Setlist

Change Rocks Brings Together Dead, Allmans One Mo' Time

 The Dead reunited last night (Monday, October 13) for the first time in four years, thrilling a sold-out crowd of devoted fans when they performed in State College, PA.  The “Change Rocks” concert, which also featured the Allman Brothers Band, was held at the 15,000-capacity Bryce Jordan Center on the campus of Penn State University to raise awareness for Senator Barack Obama and the upcoming November 4 election. 

 Original Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart were joined throughout the whole show by RatDog's Jeff Chimenti on keyboards and Allman Brothers Band/Gov’t Mule/ex-Phil & Friends and The Dead guitarist Warren Haynes.  They tore through a 15-song, two-hour set that included such Dead classics as “U.S. Blues,” “Franklin's Tower,” “Playin' In The Band,” “Dark Star,” “St. Stephen” and “Touch of Grey.”  The crowd--a mix of college students, longtime Deadheads and Barack Obama supporters--were on their feet from the first notes of show opener “Truckin,’” through the psychedelic explorations of “Dark Star,” to the end of “Not Fade Away,” the night’s closer.

 In a video-taped message shown between sets, Senator Obama told the audience:

 “For twenty months, I’ve been traveling this country from town to town-even developing a ‘Touch of Grey’ of my own.  And on that journey, I’ve seen Americans who are hurting under the politics and policies of Washington.  They need change, and I am running for President to bring about that change.

 

“On November 4th, you’ll get to make a choice between two different candidates with two dramatically different visions for our future.  You’ll get to choose which direction you want to take our country.  I believe that now is the time to put Americans back to work and rebuild our middle class; to live up to the promise of affordable health care for everyone; to guarantee a quality education for all our children; to end our dependence on Middle East oil; and to bring this war in Iraq to a responsible end.  We can do all that.  And on November 5th, I hope to announce that we ‘Ain’t Wasting Time No More.’”

 

The Dead last performed in 2004 on their “Wave That Flag” tour.  In February of this year, Hart, Lesh and Weir played a “Deadheads For Obama” show at the Warfield in San Francisco, and last year Weir, Kreutzmann and Hart performed at a post-inauguration for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

penn turning blue

Hey, when Pennsylvania turns blue, we can say yee-ha! And that is because Phil, Bobby, Mickey, Bill, etc. will be paying huge tax increases under Obama, that money will be turned over to us "middle class" Americans. I can't wait! Thank you Obama, Bobby has been dying to pay a million or more in taxes each year, and we can't wait to get our greedy little hands on it.

Thanks, Obama, it was all worth it.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Thank G-d for Obama having the intellect, morality and luck to lead,
Thank G-d for the Dead that are live,
Thank G-d that the dead rest in peace,
And when the next jam starts,
Feel the music bounce off your ears,
Feel your mind bounce off the crowd,
Think of "Skull and Roses" with his yellow ribbon in his pony tail,
He still remembers the secret, how the grove has the trees lined up, how it felt to have figured it all out, all of us together.

To the band: Thank you guys, it was a breath of fresh air.

I would have been great to hear Donna singing with the boys. Maybe for a future show?

ABB set

Is "available", sort of, on their website. You can't buy it...but it's a bonus disc if you buy their entire 2008 live collection. $100 down now, and a total of around $669 when all the shows are in.

Huh?
