Later that month Burbridge and fellow Dead & Company member Jeff Chimenti joined the band for an unforgettable “Joe Russo’s Almost Dead (& Company)” set at Fool’s Paradise in St. Augustine, FL. Later, after weather forced the band to move their Red Rocks Amphitheatre debut inside to 1st Bank Center (making it their arena debut instead), Russo and company announced a rescheduled Red Rocks date for later this year, once again featuring Oteil subbing in on bass.The video marks the 94th edition of “RAD TRACKS,” shot and edited by Sean Smith of Foggy Notions Productions.
