Venue: Bijou Theatre

City: Knoxville, TN

Date: September 24, 2017

Review and Photographs by: Rachel Craig

A huge variety of fans came out to the Bijou Theatre to experience the Chris Robinson Brotherhood’s Barefoot in the Head Tour. Between Chris Robinson’s bare feet, the incense, psychedelic carpets and American flag backdrop — this show felt like being transported to a timeless 70s-influenced rock jam band session. Frontman Chris Robinson is known for also being in the Black Crowes, and fans can definitely hear remnants of the Crowes in the Brotherhood. They even covered “Roll Old Jeremiah” during their first set of the show, along with other great covers like “Lazy Days” by The Byrds and “Sail On, Sailor” by The Beach Boys. Even though it was a long show, splitting the set into two acts definitely gave fans a treat. This was a seated event, but nearly everyone was on their feet dancing with their drink of choice. I was also surprised by the variety of fans in attendance. The range included kids, college students, parents and baby boomers. I think this definitely proves how much of an influence Chris Robinson has had on music fans of all ages. It was obvious both the band and fans enjoyed their night jamming together. Having a show like this in a beautiful venue like the Bijou made it even better. Any fan of classic rock should try to catch the CRB on this tour.

Setlist: Lazy Days – High Is Not the Top – Roll Old Jeremiah – Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line – Star or Stone – Tulsa Yesterday – California Hymn – Try Rock & Roll – Sail On, Sailor – Good to Know – She Shares My Blanket – Behold the Seer – Hark, The Herald Hermit Speaks – If You Had a Heart to Break – New Cannonball Rag – Beggar’s Moon – Bye and Bye
