Brandi Carlile Welcomes Lucius and Allison Russell at Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Last night, Brandi Carlile performed the first evening of her two-night stand at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo. During her set, which was part of her ongoing Beyond These Silent Days Tour, the folk star welcomed Allison Russell and Lucius as special guests.
Carlile opened the show with the namesake of her memoir, “Broken Horses” and “Mainstream Kid.” She didn’t waste much time before she welcomed Lucius’ Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe on stage to join her on “You and Me on the Rock” off her 2021 studio LP, In These Silent Days – in total, throughout the evening, Carlile performed seven songs off the project. After Lucius stepped off stage, Carlile continued to perform a mellifluous tracklist which included “The Mother,” “Mama Werewolf,” a cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” followed by “Creep” by Radiohead, “This Time Tomorrow,” and more. Towards the tail end of the set, Carlile once again welcomed Wolfe and Laessig for a cover of Heart’s “Alone.” She then ended her main set without guests, closing with “The Joke” and “Party Of One.”
After much applause and appreciation, Carlile stepped off the stage for a brief break before returning with a four-track encore. She opened with a rendition of her close friend Joni Mitchell’s song “Woodstock.” She then welcomed Russel and her band on stage to perform a song by Russell’s group, Our Native Daughters, “You’re Not Alone” – recently, Carlile released a studio version of the song – family and friends joined on stage for the performance. Carlile ended the evening with “Hold Out Your Hand” and closed with “Stay Gentle” with a “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” tag.
Carlile will perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre again tonight.
