Umphrey’s McGee Covers “Bittersweet Symphony” In Full For Second Time In Wisconsin [Photos]

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee took over Milwaukee this weekend, setting up a three-night residence at the Riverside Theater. Umphrey’s treated fans to a number of rare covers during this final show of the run, which went down on Saturday night. The Police’s “Voices Inside My Head” lodged itself squarely in the middle of the close-to-nonstop second set, marking the first time the cover has been played in seven years after a gap of 684 shows. A few songs later, Bob Marley’s “Burnin’ and Lootin’” made a comeback after a three-year absence of over 325 shows, which was played incompletely during a “Mulche’s Odyssey” sandwich. To close out the night, The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” ended the second set. Though “Bittersweet Symphony” sometimes makes its way into Umphrey’s setlists paired with “Hajimemashite,” Saturday night’s performance marked the second time the song has been played in its entirety by the band, with the first time the full song was played occurring back in 2014 during Summer Camp Music Festival.You can check out photos below, courtesy of photographer Daniel Ojeda.
