Newbs and Vets, Time to Argue: Trey’s Hittin’ the Road

These days you either love him or you hate him. You either think he’s finding himself after dismantling the greatest rock foursome of our lifetimes or you think he’s wasting his valuable time with a bunch of second rate musicians and a mediocre batch of new tunes.

Either way, the god among men posing as Trey Anastasio is heading back on tour come November:

Immediately following his performances at the Vegoose festival (October 28th – 30th in Las Vegas, NV) Trey and his band will embark on a 19-date tour in support of the release of his new solo album, SHINE. The tour will hit theaters across the US including a swing through the West Coast that includes a two-night stand at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco. Trey’s last visit to the Warfield resulted in a DVD release of an incredible show featuring Carlos Santana.

Trey’s new album SHINE, his first for the Columbia Records label, will be released on November 1st. A very special SHINE presale announcement will follow early next week. A real time ticket pre-sale for this tour will begin Tuesday, September 27th at 5:00pm (Eastern Time) at Trey Online Ticketing

And if you want to read a really funny post on PT about a protest outside the show called “March Against the Parade,” check this out. Very clever stuff. The best part is that people are actually taking the other side and responding so seriously…some people need to pick up a sense of humor.

    He’s got some shows w/ 70 Volt under his belt so expectations are a little higher than before.

    Other than Vegoose, don’t see myself catching any of these shows as I’m not ready to jump on a plane yet just to see Trey….

    “March against the Parade’? – c’mon, people, that is funny!!

    Well, I have listened to a lot of the 70 Volt shows and it takes some adjusting on my part, I guess. Obviously the new outfit is not as tight as Phish was, but hey, they are only playing together for a couple of months and they are making progress. They might even reach the point of being good enough to tour in Europe (that’s a SERIOUS hint, Mr. T.)

    I mean, I’ll obviously have to attend Roseland here in the Big Bad City…

    Look, the way I see it, when Trey comes to your town, you see him. I don’t care if he’s coming with Phish, with TAB, with this Trey Anastasio Affirmative Action Funtime Band or even if he’s coming with an orchestra full of drooling, deaf quadrapeds, you don’t get many opportunities to see Big Red in action.

    And as Trey and many others just indicated on Saturday at the Greek in Berkeley, even those you hope will live forever don’t often do so.

    This man is a once-in-a-generation geetarist, a guy that can make many people swoon with that first note — the distinctive tone, the mischievous grin, the intense facial expression that says “I’m gonna make your feet hurt baaad tonight, Dancey McJitterbug.” You don’t go because you want to, you go because you can’t bare to miss the greatness.

    The last show I saw left me bewildered, because I didn’t see the greatness. You got flashes, but outside of the few moments with Warren and the occasional jam-peak, it just wasn’t there. You expected it, but it rarely came. Looking back I liken it to a roller-coaster that features the inclines before the drops, but not the drops themselves.

    But I know it’s there. I don’t love the 70 Volts, but I do enjoy the Trey. ANd I’ll be there to see him whenever he lands 2 miles from my apartment. We’re in this together.
