On Friday evening, Tedeschi Trucks Band performed their second of two shows of the weekend at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. The performance saw the Derek Trucks– and Susan Tedeschi-led outfit work through a number of selections off of their recent studio release, Signs, in addition to a handful of more uncommon fan-favorite live songs.
The show opened with “Laugh About It” followed by a combo of “Don’t Know What It Means” and The Box Tops‘ “The Letter”. A pair of Signs tunes came next in “When Will I Begin” and “Hard Case” before the band delivered a beautifully somber, always-welcome rendition of “Sweet and Low”. A roaring run through Charles Segar‘s “Key to the Highway” came next, setting up a set-closing “Bound For Glory”.
The band kicked off the second set with Derek and the Dominos classic and TTB go-to “Keep On Growing”. From there, Tedeschi Trucks moved into the Allman Brothers Band‘s “Little Martha”, followed by an emotional “Midnight In Harlem”. “Part of Me” came next, followed by a soaring “Let Me Get By”, a string of staple covers (“Sticks and Stones”, “Angel From Montgomery” > “Sugaree”, “How Blue Can You Get?”) and, finally, a set-closing “I Want More”.
Tedeschi Trucks Band still had plenty left in the tank when they returned for their encore. The band peeled off a pair of Signs tracks in “Walk Through This Life” and “Shame” before rounding out their 3-song encore with a rendition of Joe Cocker classic, “Space Captain”.
