After an opening night that was highlighted by the debut of a cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” Trey Anastasio Band’s Las Vegas closer last night focused on the guitarist’s originals including some tunes not played in a while.
Among the highlights, a rare opening number of “Sweet Dreams Melinda” before more familiar tunes “Speak to Me,” “Mozambique,” “Cayman Review” and “Last Tube.” Phish’s “Tide Turns” made an appearance as well as the return of “Burn That Bridge,” the first since December 2014. The song has made appearances on stage with both TAB and Phish.
Anastasio concluded the set with another song also tested by Phish, “Rise/Come Together” and the TAB staple “Push On Til the Day.”
The second set started with the reliable “Gotta Jibboo” before the Paper Wheels cut “In Rounds” and a rare “Tube Top Flop,” not played since 2014. The rest of the set rounded out with songs “Lever Boy,” “Goodbye Head,” “Alaska,” “Tuesday,” “Plasma,” Gorillaz’s “Clint Eastwood” and the customary “First Tube” closer. TAB then returned for a two-song finale of “Show of Life” and “The Parting Glass.”
