Weir resumes his tour tonight for a second performance at Kings Theatre. Bob Weir kept the Campfire Tour rolling last night, playing a highly-anticipated show at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre along his tour in support of recently-released Blue Mountain. The tour has seen Weir travel the country, treating fans to stripped down versions of Grateful Dead classics and his new cowboy-themed original music. With Steve Kimock, Jon Shaw, Bryan Devendorf, Josh Kaufman and Scott Devendorf supporting him, there was no shortage of great music to be played.Weir opened with a Little Feat classic in “Easy To Slip,” and kept the energy going with “Loose Lucy.” The remainder of the first set highlighted Weir’s Blue Mountain material, and closed out with Johnny Cash’s “Big River.”It was set two that saw the band cook up some Grateful Dead classics,including both “Brown-Eyed Women” and “Cassidy” with famed guitarist Leslie Mendelson. Mendelson joins the likes of John Mayer, Joe Russo and Tom Hamilton as guests on this tour – esteemed company, to say the least.

first_imgAll public gatherings and events now require official authorization and social distancing of 1.5 meters has been imposed in shops and on public transport under threat of fines. “The number of reported hospital admissions and the number of deceased patients appears to be increasing less rapidly than would be expected without measures in place,” the institute said on its website. “In a number of days, it can be concluded whether the number of hospital admissions and the number of deaths among reported patients is actually leveling off, and thus how well the measures are working.”More than two-thirds of the more than 31,000 deaths worldwide from coronavirus have now been recorded in Europe and the Netherlands has warned people will be put under confinement if the measures already taken do not work.Schools, bars, restaurants, coffee houses and even brothels have been shut down since March 16, while school-leaving exams have been cancelled. The number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases in the Netherlands passed the 10,000 mark on Sunday, the authorities said, as the country focuses on building up herd immunity rather than confining the population of 17 million. A total of 771 people have died from the COVID-19 epidemic in the Netherlands and 10,866 have tested positive, the country’s institute for public health and environment (RIVM) said.The Dutch government has adopted a series of measures to fight the virus, but has decided so far not to force people to stay home. A review of the policy is due to be unveiled on Tuesday.center_img Topics :last_img read more
