The Trey Anastasio Band continued their fall tour this weekend, making stops at the Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre in Charlotte, N.C. and the Rabbit Rabbit in Asheville, N.C. The performances were missing the band’s horn section, and the rest of the fall tour’s lineup will remain that way due to Jennifer Hartswick testing positive for the COVID-19 virus.
In Charlotte, N.C. Trey Anastasio Band. opened with “46 Days” and “The Way I Feel.” The band continued with Phish covers through the first set, closing with “Ghost.” The second set opened with “Set Your Soul Free” and continued with lush renditions of Trey Anastasio’s solo tracks and Phish tracks. They closed with “Twist.”
When the band came back for the encore, they treated fans to something new. With the horn section out of action, Anastasio played solo renditions of four songs, making the encore a unique, set of its own. The band joined him for the fifth and final track, “Sand” to end the night.
The next day in Asheville, Trey Anastasio Band opened their show with “In Rounds,” then “Everything’s Right.” They laid out jams during their performance of “Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan,” “Steam,” and more. They closed the first set with “Push On ‘Til the Day.” The second set opened with “The Moma Dance” and featured fan favorites like “I Never Needed You Like This Before, “Sand,” and “Carini.”
The Asheville performance also featured an extended encore that featured several tracks with Anastasio playing solo. He played “Mountains in the Mist,” “Shade and “More” before the rest of the band joined him on “First Tube” to close out the weekend.
