Trey Anastasio made his first official appearance back in front of a live audience this weekend. The Phish frontman kicked off the summer with a pair of solo acoustic shows at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (better known at SPAC) in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Trey, who had a very productive quarantine, has a busy summer planned with a handful of solo gigs including a pair at the Beacon Theatre, an Oysterhead reunion and Phish tour. To get the tour season started, Trey invited his new friends the Rescue Squad Strings for a part of the show last Friday. The show included some originals and a good helping of Phish tunes including a “Wilson” opener.
