Indie pop quartet Lucius played the historic Beacon Theatre Wednesday night, and the band was joined by Pink Floyd guitarist Roger Waters, who sang a rendition of “Mother” for the show’s encore.
This was not the first time Roger Waters performed with Lucius’ Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. Both toured in the Pink Floyd guitarist’s band during his Us + Them tour in 2017 and 2018. “Mother” never appeared on the setlist that tour, but they did perform the song together at Newport Folk Festival in 2015 and at Lucius’s concert at London’s Union Chapel in 2018.
Waters was not the only famous guitar player in attendance Wednesday night. Phish‘s Trey Anastasio posted photos of the concert on social media, including shots with singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Celisse Henderson, who opened the show. The two musicians have played together in Trey’s Ghosts of the Forest project, of which Celisse is a member, and Trey sat in with Celisse’s band at last year’s Peach Music Festival.
In addition to the band’s Beacon Theatre show, Lucius performed “Dance Around” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with special guests Sheryl Crow, Celisse, and Late Show house band Stay Human. Watch video of the performance below.
Roger Waters will launch his This is Not a Drill tour in July with a show at Pittsburgh, PA’s PPG Paints Arena. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit his website.
