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.

^ – Debut; stream began with Trey on acoustic and his backing vocals joining him for the song, then they walked onto the Beacon stage to finish.
% – began with Rescue Squad String Section and horns, no rhythm section until the jam.
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
