We're surprised to see how many tickets are still available for shows later this month featuring Trey and varous orchestras, performing pieces from his 30-year career as well as a brand new composition (for electric guitar and orchestra) that he's created just for this tour!
Consider the Hollywood Bowl show, Friday September 26th, featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Scott Dunn. Even if, somehow, the show itself (not to mention the venue) weren't compelling enough, consider the opening act: Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Bryce Dessner (The National), and the yMusic ensemble, performing selections from new release Music for Heart and Breath.
While tickets up front top $400, rear sections start at only $18 (!) - and while you won't see the bassoonist's fingers from the back, the sound is great. At that price, the music, venue, weather, and ticket availability make for a great family night - so, the Lemurians are coming kids-in-tow. If you are as well, let's aim for a Phish.net family gathering picnic outside pre-show?

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
