Dave Matthews Band Covers Prince In A Set Of Classics On Night Two Of The Gorge

first_imgDave Matthews Band returned to The Gorge Amphitheatre last night for the second night of their annual three-night stand at the storied venue. The band has announced that they’ll be taking an extended hiatus following this run, giving the weekend an extra feeling of importance for fans and band alike. There’s no telling when DMB will return to the stage, so this weekend is a huge celebration of the band’s deep catalog. Night one featured fan-favorites like “The Song That Jane Likes”, “Warehouse”, “Dancing Nancies”, and “Grey Street” (among others), and night two featured more of the same, with a funky Prince cover thrown in and another appearance by Brazilian brass legend Carlos Malta.The band opened up with “Squirm”, before really getting the set started with a pair of beloved tracks in “One Sweet World” and “Granny”. The beginning of the set also featured “When the World Ends”, “Funny the Way It Is”, and a standout “Crush” before the band segued into “Bartender” and invited Malta out for his first tune of the evening. “Bartender” was only played one other time in 2016, so the song was truly appreciated by the DMB faithful who trekked out to The Gorge. Malta would join the band on “Cry Freedom”, Dave Matthews solo track “Gravedigger”, and “Jimi Thing” throughout the course of the evening, adding his signature sound to DMB’s well-oiled machine.After “Jimi Thing”, DMB performed a super-funky cover of “Sexy MF” by Prince that really got the crowd moving, before the band brought their set to a close with “Pantala Naga Pampa” > “Rapunzel”. The band returned to the stage for an extended, three-song encore of “Sister”, “Two Step”, and “Halloween” that put a cap on an excellent evening.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of setlist.fm. Dave Matthews Band have one more show at The Gorge tonight before beginning their extended hiatus on Monday. Edit this setlist | More Dave Matthews Band setlistslast_img read more

Watt participates in Packers tradition, breaks kid’s bike in process Texans rookie kicked out of joint practice with Packers after big hits “I wouldn’t mind if they didn’t do it for another 14 years,” Rodgers told the media afterward, via Packersnews.com.”Look, that’s out of my control,” he continued. “I think the key for all of us here, we know how important training camp is not only to our fans but our local businesses. Unless we’re going to California, I’d be bummed out if we had to go to another city. You bring a team in, I understand the point of it. I don’t think doing live special teams drills is very smart. I think the [NFL]PA is going to look at that, for sure. The kickoff especially is one of the most dangerous plays in football, and that’s why they’ve tweaked different things over the years.

It’s an unfortunate deal because I was pretty clear with our guys we’re not doing that stuff.”Green Bay receiver Davante Adams called the hits “unnecessary,” and tight end Jimmy Graham said Johnson’s antics were “kind of ridiculous.” Johnson was absent Tuesday after he posted a photo to Instagram of him flexing over Green Bay tight end Jace Sternberger.
