Trey Anastasio Debuts Acoustic ‘Sanity’ & More In Milwaukee


Trey Anastasio continued his solo acoustic tour at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee on Friday night. Trey delivered a number of acoustic debuts including Phish’s “Sanity,” Ghosts Of The Forest’s “In Long Lines” and “Windora Bug.”

Anastasio kicked things off with “Prince Caspian” followed by “Back On The Train,” “Limb By Limb” and “My Friend, My Friend.” Trey then offered up “Runaway Jim,” which he had played solo acoustic at a TAB show in 2011 but was a “debut” for Trey solo. “Brian And Robert” came next ahead of Oysterhead’s “Rubberneck Lions,” “Turtle In The Clouds,” “Guelah Papyrus,” “Snowflakes In The Sand,” “The Inlaw Josie Wales” and “Waste.”

The acoustic debut of “In Long Lines” followed before “Ghosts Of The Forest,” “Blaze On,” “Shade,” “The Connection,” “Mountains In The Mist,” “Mercury,” “Cavern,” “Backwards Down The Number Line” and “Wilson” to close out the set. Trey remerged for a four-song encore beginning with “Till We Meet Again.” The solo acoustic debuts of “Windora Bug” and “Sanity” followed ahead of “Lawn Boy” and “Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S.” to bring the evening to a close.

As he is wont to do, Trey told a number of entertaining stories including details on Phish’s 2019 instant classic at Alpine Valley. Trey also talked about Phish’s “O.J. Show” at Milwaukee’s Eagles Ballroom in 1994. He regaled the audience with the tale of how the band and crew gathered around a small TV set backstage during setbreak to watch the infamous low-speed white Bronco car chase.
