Tonight is the final night of Trey Anastasio‘s incredible run dubbed The Beacon Jams, an eight-week affair at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. For the past eight weeks, Phish fans have been treated to a wildly unique run featuring Trey’s compositions, a string section, and his usual TAB band rhythm section plus or minus a few key parts (like backing vocals). Let’s see what he has in store for the final show.
Here are the setlists from each show prior to tonight; scroll down for Week #8.
As a reminder, the show is streaming for free for everyone at home via Trey Anastasio’s new Twitch channel.
We’ll be following along with the show from home and updating the setlist below as the evening progresses.

Tonight's opening song was called "Just A Touch" and was a debut (not to be confused with the REM or Keith Sweat versions) and may be a Trey / @TomMarshall111 / Scott Herman collaboration. #thebeaconjams
