Umphrey’s McGee Busts Out Pink Floyd, Radiohead Covers, Debuts New Song In Charlotte

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee continued their summer tour last night with a stop at Charlotte, NC’s The Fillmore. The band has been firing on all cylinders lately, and they took it up a notch last night with a powerful setlist filled with heavy tunes, old classics, and two huge bust out covers.Set one started with a new intro song, as Umphrey’s debuted “Lord Bail Ship”, which flowed right into an intense “1348” before transforming into “White Man’s Moccasins”. Rock ballad “Loose Ends” came next, and they jammed the song into old favorite “Resolution”, and continued the segues with a move into “Similar Skin”. After a funky “Dump City”, the Umphrey’s closed the first set with a combo of two heavy, progressive songs with “Spires” into “The Floor”.Set two started with a huge “The Bottom Half” sandwich. Opening with the  great version of “The Bottom Half”, which segued into the older song “Sweetness”, then “Cut the Cable”, before closing out the final segment of “The Bottom Half”. Next up, Umphrey’s started up the reliable jam vehicle “Red Tape”. However, instead of a typical “Jimmy Stewart” section in the song, the band segued into Radiohead‘s “Meeting in the Aisle”, performing the track for the first time in 172 shows, and only the 17th time ever after debuting the cover back in 2006. The band finished the rare cover before returning back to the end portion of “Red Tape”. The band finished the first set with a raucous “Phil’s Farm” that wound it’s way back into “1348”, completing the version that opened the show.Umphrey’s returned to the stage for a single encore, featuring another huge bust out cover in Pink Floyd‘s “Time”. The Dark Side of the Moon classic has only been played by Umphrey’s 14 times ever, and last appeared on a setlist in April 2015, 116 shows ago. The band absolutely crushed the cover, ending the show on a high note.Umphrey’s McGee continues their summer tour next Friday, July 15th, at the Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore, MD.
