They opened the set with "Chest Fever". The song featured a dramatic solo organ intro played by Garth Hudson. In live performances, this solo evolved into an improvisation drawing from numerous musical styles and lasting several minutes.
As he says, 'what do you remember about 'Chest Fever' - the lyrics or the organ part? Viney notes that despite the death of Richard Manuel later line-ups of the Band continued to perform "Chest Fever" with Helm singing lead vocals.
