Tedeschi Trucks Band Celebrate The Release Of ‘Signs’ In Washington D.C. – Full Show Audio

24

Tedeschi Trucks Band began a two-night stand at the Warner Theatre in Washington D.C. on Friday. The evening was bittersweet for the rock and soul ensemble, who were celebrating the release of their brand new studio album Signs, as news broke that their bandmate Kofi Burbridge had passed away from an ongoing battle with cardiac issues.

With heavy-hearts and dressed in all black, the Tedeschi Trucks Band soldiered on as they performed their newly issued fourth LP in its entirety minus one track. The night got going with “Signs, High Times” as Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks would then led their group through all of Signs front to back with exception of “The Ending,” a track they recorded as a trio with Oliver Wood in honor Col. Bruce Hampton. The band stuck mostly to compact versions of the songs with only “Still Your Mind” and “Shame” getting extended treatments.

The back half of the evening gave the 12-piece band an opportunity to stretch their wings a bit more as they delivered expansive takes on “Bound For Glory,” “Midnight In Harlem” and a set-closing “Part Of Me.” Tedeschi Trucks Band offered a two-song encore looking to Little Milton’s “More And More” and Joe Cocker’s take on “Space Captain.” Prior to leaving the stage, an emotional Tedeschi thanked the audience before saying “We’ll be back tomorrow night. We’re gonna try. We love you Kofi.”
