Tedeschi Trucks’ tour opening performance included memorable performances of “Keep On Growing,” “Made Up Mind,” “Laugh About It,” “Bird On The Wire,” “Don’t Know What,” “Midnight In Harlem,” “Get Out My Life,” “I Wish I Knew,” “I Pity The Fool,” “Bound For Glory,” “I Want More,” and oft-covered early 20th century hymn “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” as well as a standout “Angel” -> a powerful rendition of the Grateful Dead‘s “Sugaree,” delivered as always with signature swagger from Susan Tedeschi.“It’s been great to develop this tour into an annual event where we get a chance to hit the road and share the stage with fellow musicians we love and respect, Susan Tedeschi explained in a statement when the tour was announced. “Each year we try to find bands that share our musical vision while bringing their own unique talents to this traveling circus.” Oliver Wood added, “We go way back with Derek and Susan. They are some of our favorite friends and collaborators.” Wood co-wrote a track on TTB’s Revelator album, and both Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi appeared on The Wood Brothers’ Paradise album as well.”This year marks the third year of TTB’s “Wheels of Soul” tour concept, for which they bring together the top talent around for extended multi-band engagements. “Wheels of Soul” always has a collaborative spirit, and the members of this year’s bands are not strangers to collaboration. Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna), for example, has played many times with TTB. The tour runs throughout the month of July, playing festivals and amphitheaters nationwide before culminating in a two-night run at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.For a full list of upcoming dates on the “Wheels of Soul” tour, head to Tedeschi Trucks Band’s website.You can see a gallery of photos from last night’s tour opener courtesy of photographer Vic Brazen, and check out fan-shot footage of “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” (via Gary Engel), “Bound For Glory,” “Keep On Growing,” (via Jamey Klein), and “Bird on the Wire” (via Brosef Wilson) below:“Will The Circle Be Unbroken”“Bound For Glory”“Keep On Growing” “Bird on the Wire”last_img
