The set also included covers of “Another Brick in the Wall,” “Children of the Revolution” and “Hey Jude.” Their set list included 14 songs; however, the band creatively combined numbers with close to two hours of music.
Lucius joined Portugal. The Man on this tour along with the Seaweed Sisters, entertaining the crowd with creative interpretive dances while Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig harmonized to soulful music. They were the perfect opener for the evening. Photos/write-up: Shantel Mitchell Breen
