Dead and Company sweep the fans off their feet with a Sunday special at Fenway Park.

Dead and Company sweep the fans off their feet with a Sunday special at Fenway Park. 
 
    I am house sitting for a wealthy family member, so obviously I ordered the webcast and cranked it up. They got the party started with maybe the most fitting "Samson and Delilah" of all time. It may be the Yankee fan in me, but was an outstanding opening number nonetheless. The first set was explosive, it was almost as if it was a third set from Saturday night's extraordinary show. A very warm " Candyman" gave way to a surprise first set appearance of " Let it Grow". They layed into the jam vehicle pushing the music into interesting territory as Mayer really seems to love playing this classic. The first set ended with acoustic versions of "Dark Star" (First verse only) and a masterful "Ripple". 
    The second set was all about the jams as every tune performed was played to the limit. "Trucken" was taken for a ride before it exploded into "Fire" which bled into a "St Stephen" for the ages. Drums and Space went back into "Dark Star" before a stunning "Day Between" left Fenway Park breathless. Of course the encore was "Brokedown Palace"and it was a perfect metaphorical cherry on the Fenway double header. This is truly a band beyond description.
