Notes: This show featured Trey performing orchestration by Don Hart with the NSO Pops and Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke. "Frost" was an orchestral debut. Before "Goodbye Head" Trey noted that he had written this song with his elder daughter when she was nine years old, and that now she was going off to college. Trey dedicated "Water in the Sky" to a fan who had caused a minor disruption, as a bargain so that she would return to her seat. "Brian and Robert" was dedicated to Tom Marshall.

Musicians: Trey Anastasio, Don Hart, National Symphony Orchestra, Andrew Hitz

SpreadheadJON Totally incredible night! First of all, the venue was The Kennedy Center Concert Hall, which is adjacent to The Smithsonians'. Beautiful setting for a memorable night. Some first set highlights for me were "Frost" and "Stash". The National Symphony Orchestra deserves a better review than I am capable of putting into words. The second set opener, TTE was really something special. Hands down the best version I have ever heard or for that matter will ever hear. Later, Trey gave a shout-out to Tom Marshall who happened to be in the Balcony box right next to me. The drunk girl in the third row who held up the show was a riot! Nothing could beat the atmosphere that night. A night I will long remember.
