Lang chilled out during the more subdued pop song 'Red Light' but almost as quickly returned to his jaw-dropping fretboard antics with help from the audience. For part two, he had the crowd providing the familiar reggae-tinged lyrics "everything is gonna be alright" so he himself could focus more on his guitar work.
As if channeling Lang's two-part jam, Gregg Allman led his band through a raucous seven-minute-plus 'Whipping Post' that opened with Oteil Burbridge's deep bass riffs and featured back-to-back guitar solos between Haynes and Trucks, who worked the neck of his guitar with a glass slide. Trucks spent a lot of the set sitting down due to a foot injury sustained while playing ball with his brother, and even sat out the first song of the encore, 'Melissa.' Gregg Allman fittingly switched from his usual place behind the piano to the guitar on the song he wrote back in 1967, while Trucks hobbled back onstage with his crutches for the closer, 'One Way Out.'
