Update: Trey announced his tour and he’s playing about ten dates so far in August. Check it out here.

Get ready for the sickest “Loving Cup” of all time: The Daily Progess reports today that the Bad Lieutenant will be opening up for the Rolling Stones at the October 6th show at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Va.

According to the report, “And the opening act for the Rolling Stones’ Scott Stadium show is…Trey Anastasio, formerly of Phish.

In addition to naming the opening act, concert promoters on Wednesday also made available an undisclosed number of ‘limited view’ tickets for the sold-out Oct. 6 show. The tickets, priced at $60 and $95, became available at 5 p.m.

The upcoming show is the first major concert at Scott Stadium since the Dave Matthews Band played there in April 2001, and fans quickly snapped up tickets when they went on sale last month. Tickets soon popped up on eBay as well, commanding a premium well above their face values of $160, $95 and $60.” [More]

Considering Trey is the best cover band on the scene, my money is on “Miss You” for the 70 Volt Parade rotation.
