This entire show was performed by Trey solo acoustic. Trey walked off the stage while the crowd was still singing along to Bathtub Gin and played the final notes of Gin when he returned for the encore.

Review by mcbeeferson

mcbeeferson I loved this show! The evening started out in the beautiful Carnegie Hall with a sort of quiet respect, not just for Trey Anastasio up on stage with his trio of acoustic guitars and his suit, but the hallowed hall itself. When Trey played his first few songs, the room was silent outside of the ecstatic applause and cheers that bookended each tune. As the night went on and Trey told a couple stories about his youth and his more recent realization that it's the man that makes a pair of pants look good, not the other way around, everything gradually loosened. With NICU and Bouncing Around the Room, the crowd helped with the harmonies to Trey's delight. We laughed at the lyrics of My Problem Right There, and in Twist we all woo'd along. By the time Bathtub Gin ended the set, there was a sort of unmistakable giddiness in the room. There was so much smiling and laughing.

There were two things that Trey said this night that stuck with me. The first was, "Live music is the antidote to my perpetual discontent." A melancholy line that I think gets at the heart of why so many of us go out to these shows and speaks to their power to recharge us.

The second was thing was in the middle of Sleeping Monkey, as everyone in the hall was singing along with the chorus and Trey laughed at the lyrics. He joked, "This is what they were waiting for when they built this room." I can't speak for the people that built that beautiful hall, but it's what I've been waiting for.

Review by Col_Radicones_Ascent

Col_Radicones_Ascent God....there is something to be said about singing Phish songs in Carnegie Hall. Tonight will be a moment I will remember for a long time. That was so much effing fun, the Bathtub Gin sing-a-long into the encore, the acoustic jams in Twist and 46 Days, my favorite acoustic tunes. Someone please articulate this for me, I am having trouble, but...damn.
