Greek Theatre - LA

The Tedeschi Trucks Band is unique: a 12-member ensemble of extraordinary musicians, playing the music they want to play, sustaining a productive schedule of recording and live performance, and thrilling ever-growing audiences all along the way.

Under the mystical glow of the Griffith Observatory, the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles transformed into a haven of psychedelic wonder on the night of October 14th, as Joe Russo's Almost Dead took the stage. This iconic venue, with its amphitheater-like seating, ensured that every note reached the ears of eager fans, turning the evening into an enchanting journey through the Grateful Dead's timeless catalog.

On the beautiful early fall night of Wednesday, September 27th, under a nearly full moon, Ian Anderson brought seven decades of Jethro Tull’s classical rock to a packed house at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. The Nederlander concert featured two well-produced sets of beautiful music.

In terms of pure musicianship - the ability to play or sing well, both technically and expressively - the individual members of the Tedeschi Trucks Band are each gifted, seasoned and professional. Some, most obviously Derek Trucks himself, ascend to a level of artistry that transcends mere training and practice. They are accomplished, but more importantly, they are unique, and born to be so.

At one point during his two-plus hour concert on a pristine evening, the last day of summer, Mark Knopfler took some time to banter with the sold-out audience at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. “I love playing here. I’ve played here many times. I have often thought about retiring in recent years,” the 70-year-old former lead guitarist and vocalist of Dire Straits shared with the Los Angeles crowd.
