Trey Anastasio played at Carnegie Hall last night with the New York Philharmonic, and by all accounts I saw the show was incredible. I really hope Trey brings this out on tour someday.

Here’s the setlist:

Set 1: First Tube, The Inlaw Josie Wales, Brian and Robert, Divided Sky, Water In the Sky, Pebbles and Marbles, Guyute Orchestral
Set 2: Time Turns Elastic, Let Me Lie, You Enjoy Myself
Encore: If I Could

Trey Anastasio with New York Philharmonic @ Carnegie Hall, 9/12/09 [MediaFire]

Here’s the roundup:

From HeadCount: “So what was it like outside? A raging nitrous scene. It began well before the show and popped up again right after, continuing unabated for at least 45 minutes after the “If I Could” encore. This wasn’t the sort of back alley, slightly down-low nitrous scene we’re used to. It was completely out in the open, with hawkers walking around with 4 balloons in each, right on the corner of W 57th and 7th Ave.”

From Hidden Track: “The highlight of the show came near the end when Anastasio and the orchestra unveiled their version of You Enjoy Myself. A lot of thought was put into each section of the song from Trey’s post-tramps solo to the vocal jam to the way the trombones played the “boy, man, god, shit” sequence. The only shitty part of the experience was seeing multiple people pass out after ingesting nitrous outside of the iconic venue. You can take the kidz out of the Phish lot, but you can’t take the Phish lot out of the kidz.”

From the NY Times: “The orchestra, conducted by Asher Fisch, played brilliantly throughout the evening, with the trombones dipping into deep reserves of raucousness for “You Enjoy Myself.” The concert was liberally punctuated with whoops and cheers; the final ovation for the orchestra before the encore — another Phish song, “If I Could” — was the loudest, wildest response I have ever heard for anything at Carnegie. That so many of the players could remain stone-faced during the tumult is a phenomenon beyond my comprehension.”

From Mr. Miner: “Unreal.”

    Have to agree- show was great… very fun to see such an interesting new take on the songs.. But seeing those idiots huffing nitrous balloons right outside Carnegie Hall was really disappointing. Saw a guy sucking down a balloon while standing on the steps down to the subway- there’s a good way to kill yourself.

    The music portion of the night was beautiful. Wonderful song selection, outstanding conducting, and brilliant musical delivery. The scene outside, however, was embarrassing. The fact that so many people disrespected Carnegie Hall by killing themselves with nitrous, is disgusting. First of all to buy stuff that can kill you, but to do it in front of one of the most historic and beautiful places to see and hear music. Time to grow up.

    Thank you Trey, Asher Fisch, and all of the wonderful musicians.

    Yeah this nitrous thing is really out of control….I couldn’t believe that it was part of the story at all, let alone a major part of the reports on how the show went.

    But seriously — that music was beautiful and it overshadowed anything the shade-sters were doing outside. I could listen to this YEM every day….

    Even when I initially heard YEM, over a fairly crappy feed, it still sounded lush and gorgeous. Good for you Trey….keep it up!
