Umphrey’s McGee Busts The Led Out In Hampton Beach [Photo]

first_imgPhoto: Kevin Cole Over the weekend, Umphrey’s McGee laid out a quick three-night run across the Northeast, making stops in Baldwinsville, New York; Providence, Rhode Island; and Hampton Beach, New Hampshire across May 17th to 19th. With the band’s last show in April for Atlanta’s SweetWater 420 Festival, the shows served as a warm-up run ahead of the band’s highly anticipated performance at Summer Camp Music Festival, which kicks off the band’s summer tour in earnest.By the time that Umphrey’s show at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom rolled in on Saturday, Umphrey’s McGee had fully settled into mini-tour mode. The group was sounding tight, savoring the transitions between songs and expertly building songs to their peak. On Friday, May 18th, the band quietly released a brand-new album, it’s you, with little fanfare as a thank you to fans, noting that “After completing the latest recording sessions and digesting the volume of material we had tracked, it grew increasingly clear that a single album wasn’t realistic. The collective level of enthusiasm around the majority of these tunes made us reluctant to leave much on the cutting room floor (rarely the case).”During the band’s Saturday show, the band had a special surprise in store for fans. After opening with it’s not us‘s “Dark Brush”, which made a live appearance for the fourth time ever, the band offered up renditions of long-running show staples “The Triple Wide”, “The Fuzz”, and “Walletsworth”. After a well-segued pairing of “Comma Later” into “Crucial Taunt”, Umphrey’s kicked off their ending spring of the first set using their original “Much Obliged” as a springboard. From there, the band offered up a take on Led Zeppelin’s “How Many More Times”, marking the band’s eighth performance of the tune and first performance since Dominican Holidaze in 2014, into Led Zep’s “Immigrant Song”, which was last performed at Terrapin Crossroads in March of 2017.Moving onto the second set, the group kicked things off with a “Det Bluten Kat” sandwich housing a cover of The Police’s “Voices Inside My Head”, marking the ninth time The Police cover had been performed live and first performance since the group busted it out after nearly seven years in Milwaukee last April. Classic “In The Kitchen” came next, which was segued into “Attachments”, a tune that fans are no doubt familiar, given its regular play over the last two years, that appears of Umphrey’s brand-new album, it’s you. Closing out the show, the band offered up “Phil’s Farm”, a return to “In The Kitchen”, and “JaJunk” ahead of the band’s encore of “Kimble” and “Plush”.You can check out the setlist from Umphrey’s Hampton Beach show on Saturday below.
