Bob Weir used his birthday yesterday as an appropriate date to kick off his brand new trio called Bob Weir and Wolf Bros in Reno of all places.
Setlist reports that we’ve seen show a great mix of tunes from the classic Grateful Dead variety to Bob Weir’s recently output, “Only a River”. There’s also a Bob Dylan cover (“She Belongs to Me”) along with some of the stuff Bobby used to play in Ratdog.

14 short hours in Reno for the tour opener of @bobweir and the Wolf Bros. It was Bobby’s 71st birthday. Show is an interesting deconstruction of the music. *Bobby looks notably thinner than summer tour. Hope it’s a new yogi diet or something. #balladofathinman #peggyo #bobweir #bobweirandwolfbros
