Phish front man Trey Anastasio and his Trey Anastasio Band ensemble opened a brief four-show swing last night at the Moore Theatre in Seattle. Over the course of two lengthy sets, TAB delivered a mix of songs from each stage of Anastasio’s solo career as well as an acoustic romp through Wilson.
Before starting Wilson, Anastasio told the crowd it was a thrill to be in Seattle and mentioned that it’s a dream of his for fans to chant “Wilson” when Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson steps on the field. Trey said “use social media and tell your friends,” imploring fans to make it happen.
Check out the setlist from last night’s show…
Set One: Mozambique, Cayman Review, Land of Nod, Dark & Down, Pigtail, Burlap Sack and Pumps, Greyhound Rising, Tube Top Flop, Money Love and Change, Scabbard, Frost, Let Me Lie, Push On Til The Day

Also of note, Anastasio dusted off Gone – a studio version of which will be released on Saturday as part of the Blue Ash And Other Suburbs’ Record Store Day release – for the first time since Phish played the tune on December 31st, 2010. The last TAB version took place on October 21st, 2008. Here’s audio of the reworked version of Gone that was debuted last night…
Trey also didn’t use his Ocelot guitar all night, instead switching between his older Languedoc and his Fender Jaguar. The tour continues tonight at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon.
