Umphrey’s McGee performed a cover of Jane’s Addiction’s “Stop!” on Thursday night at the Summer Camp Music Festival that was the biggest bust out in the band’s 21-year history in terms of shows between plays. Last night’s “Stop!” was the first since June 9, 2000 – a span of 2,251 concerts.
The massive treat came during UM’s late night performance in the Red Barn within Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois. Drummer Kris Myers handled lead vocals on a cover that was last played before he joined the band. Founding drummer Mike Mirro, who left UM in 2002 and passed away in 2014, sang all previous versions of the song from Jane’s Addiction’s 1990 album Ritual de lo Habitual.
Last night’s Umphrey’s set began with the pairing of “1348” and “2×2.” The sextet then worked “Comma Later” into “Domino Theory” before performing “Attachments.” Next up was the classic “Example 1.” Bassist Ryan Stasik announced, “The next one’s a good one” and then Myers greeted the crowd and advised they would be in for a “bust out” as an intro to “Stop!” After the cover, guitarist Brendan Bayliss called Myers “the hardest working man in show business.” Finally, “Dump City” brought the set to a close. “Much Obliged” and “Kula” served as the encore.
