Trey Anastasio Band and Goose brought their triumphant eight-show joint TABoose Tour to a close last Saturday in Reading, Pennsylvania. The two acts told fans to expect “unique collaborations” when the run was announced and made good on the promise at each stop.

Most shows saw Trey Anastasio join the Connecticut-based quintet for two songs at the end of their set. Then, TAB’s sets would typically conclude with Goose’s Rick Mitarotonda and Peter Anspach on guitar and keys respectively. Concerts generally concluded with both bands loading the stage for a finale. There was plenty to enjoy for fans of both acts.

“The takeaway from this tour has been this amazing learning experience of what can happen through the stages of your career,” Anspach told Rolling Stone. “And how to approach all those things, those changes, and evolve musically.”

The historic excursion not only gave jam fans eight memorable shows with a bevy of standout moments TABoose Tour also provided numerous data points for stat geeks to breakdown.
