Tedeschi Trucks Band brought their magic to the desert on Tuesday night with a spellbinding performance to open their two-night run at the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. Following the opening act, Austin, Texas’ The Greyhounds, who perfectly set the tone for the evening, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivered a near-two-hour set mixed with old favorites and newer instant classics among the group’s legion of fan.Tedeschi Trucks Band Welcomes Blake Mills & Carey Frank For Night One In LA [Setlist/Photos]During the show, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivered some well-loved tunes from their earlier catalog, such as “It’s So Heavy”, “Part of Me”, and a bold “Bound for Glory” encore. The show also saw the group lay out a fiery rendition of Derek & The Dominoes’ “Anyday”, which offered some dynamic vocal work between Susan Tedeschi and Mike Mattison, as well as Tedeschi Trucks Band’s own take on Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.” Also on the docket for the evening was the band’s relatively new number, “Shame”, which made its debut over the summer and was performed last during the group’s highly anticipated run at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre this past weekend.Relive Tedeschi Trucks Band & Trey Anastasio’s Collab At The Beacon [Pro-Shot Video/Audio]However, one of the stand-out MVPs of the evening was Kofi Burbridge, who it’s safe to say is fully back in the saddle following his medical emergency earlier in the year that prevented him from touring with the group while he recovered. Last night’s show in Phoenix saw a stand-out performance by Burbridge, with his awe-inspiring flute solo leaving the crowd’s jaws dropped. Derek Trucks made his way across the stage to initiate the solo, and then followed it with a particularly effortless slide guitar rebuttal, underlying the undeniable chemistry between the two prolific musicians.Tedeschi Trucks Band Side Project, Whose Hat Is This?, Announces Winter Tour Tedeschi Trucks Band will return to the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday.

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison and the McKinley gang banned?! It may well happen. According to BBC News, in a David and Goliath court case, Mark Tughan, owner of British comedy/music venue the Glee Club has challenged the big wigs at 21st Century Fox for trade mark infringement and won. View Comments The Emmy nominated series, which will celebrate its two-part 100th episode on March 18 and 25, had plans to air its fifth and sixth seasons internationally, but that just might not happen at all in the U.K. A judge ruled on February 7 in Tughan’s favor, citing that potential customers may put be off by the association with the TV series. (Are they crazy?!) Unfortunately this could mean that Rachel Berry, Kurt Hummel, Mr. Schuester and the whole Glee family could sing so long, farewell to U.K. airwaves. Besides being taken off the small screen, Glee merchandise and music downloads would also be unavailable across the pond! A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox said that they “intend to appeal and are confident that, as the case plays out, we will ultimately prevail. We remain committed to delivering Glee to all of its fans in the U.K.” Matthew Morrison Lea Michele Star Files
