Warren Haynes Kicks off 4th of July Celebration at the LGD50 Concert Series in Lake George, NY
The LGD50 Concert Series keeps on getting better as the weeks go by with different national touring musicians performing almost every single weekend. To kick off the 4th of July festivities at the Charles R. Wood Festival Commons in Lake George, NY, Warren Haynes played two stellar sets as part of his solo tour. Haynes is one of the bigger artists to perform at the Festival Commons since its inception which only opens the floodgates of more possibilities down the road!
This was the third stop on Haynes Solo Tour, previously playing a show in New Jersey the night before. Despite the rain, tons of dedicated fans came out to see the legendary guitarist. For the tour, he decided to bring along an array of beautiful electric guitars instead of the acoustic route. It was great to hear friendly banter back and forth between Haynes and the crowd including a fan yelling “Thanks for playing in my living room!” with Haynes while laughing replying “This is a pretty big living room you got.”
His stage set up included two end tables with lamps on them, a rug, his guitar and himself giving an intimate feel to the night. He kicked off the show with “Is it Me Or You” followed by a stand out version of “Ballerina” a couple songs after. Other highlights included phenomenal covers of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride & Joy” and “The Sky Is Crying.” Warren Hayne’s wrapped up the night with a two song encore featuring Allman Brother Band classic “Ain’t Waistin’ Time No More” and fan favorite “Soulshine” Check out the setlist, photo gallery and a pro-shot video of him performing “Soulshine” below:
