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.
