Trey Anastasio Trio got back on the road on Thursday night in Charlottesville, VA, kicking off a short, three-show East Coast run at Sprint Pavilion and welcoming back longtime TAB keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, who had taken a break from touring following brain surgery earlier this year.
The quartet kicked off the night with the Phish singalong “Blaze On” and fit live staples like “Ocelot,” “No Men in No Man’s Land,” “Cayman Review,” “Gotta Jibboo” and “Sand” into the first set, while set two opened with newer tune “Everything’s Right” before one of the oldest Phish cuts, “Camel Walk.” The closing set also featured more recent songs like “Steam” and “Soul Planet,” plus classics like “Farmhouse,” “Ghost” and “First Tube.”
Anastasio later came out for a run of solo acoustic songs to open the encore, playing “Waste,” “Strange Design” and “More,” before his bandmates joined him for a “46 Days” that closed out the evening.
See the full setlist below as it appears in our Box Scores section, along with some fan-shot clips from the night. Trey Quartet continue their short tour tonight at New York’s Central Park Summerstage.
