Bob Weir Storms Off Stage During Acoustic Performance in California

(video contains swearing)

Monday night’s (March 4) acoustic performance by Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead was cut short when Weir stood up and abruptly left the stage, mid-song. He was growing irritated with several chatty audience members, before leaving during Bob Dylan‘s ‘A Hard Rain’s A Gonna Fall.’

At one point, Jambands.com reports, Weir asked if he was interrupting the talkers, before saying “OK I give up. I’ll be back up later with an electric band and we’ll be loud enough and that will be that.”

The show would not end there however, both he and Jonathan Wilson were doing acoustic sets before the two joined their RatDog Quartet bandmates for an electric show. That set went on as scheduled, with a few barbs toward the audience.

“It’s okay, we’re not going to try to do anything particularly delicate now,” Weir said when returned to the Sweetwater Music Hall stage. The San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch caught up with the manager at the venue who said they told the audience members to be respectful. “And we’ll have security guards (in the future) going through the room asking folks to please keep it down, though we did this to an extent but it simply got away from us,” Aaron Kayce said of the night.

All was not totally well during RatDog’s set, as Weir did shout “Shut the f**k up!” at one point. They were able to finish however.
