Trey Anastasio brought his new Ghosts of the Forest project to New York City for the first of two nights at the United Palace Theatre continuing the band’s inaugural tour as it moves down the East Coast.

The frontman led his band—which features his Phish bandmate and drummer Jon Fishman plus keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, bassist Tony Markellis, and vocalists Jennifer Hartswick and Celisse Henderson—through the same setlist that the group has been offering throughout their East Coast dates, including all of the tracks from their newly released studio album, which came out earlier in the day.

The show also marked the first Ghosts of the Forest performance to be offered as a webcast via LivePhish.

See last night’s full setlist below, along with pro-shot video of the opener, “Ghosts of the Forest,” plus a full stream of the band’s new studio album. Anastasio and company return to the United Palace Theatre stage tonight for round two (which will also be streamed by LivePhish) before switching coasts next weekend.
