The Trey Anastasio Band completed a two-show run at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas on Halloween night. The Phish frontman’s band had a few treats in store to celebrate the occasion including a handful of showgirls coming out as part of a fun encore.
Anastasio and his band came out strong with “First Tube” and mixed covers such as “1977,” “Acting The Devil” and “Devil Went Down To Georgia” with originals such as “Sometime After Sunset,” “Drifting” and “Paper Wheels” throughout the first set. The opening stanza’s biggest surprise took place towards the end, when TAB debuted a cover of a song Guy Lombardo popularized that includes two Phish lyrical references in its title – “Enjoy Yourself (It’s Later Than You Think).”
Set Two featured a focus on originals from throughout TAB’s 15+ year run including “Last Tube,” “The Way I Feel” and “Architect.” There were a few covers in the closing stanza namely “O-o-h Child” and “Sweet & Dandy.” When the band returned to the stage for the encore, they were joined by Vegas showgirls for “MacArthur Park,” a Jennifer Hartswick-sung cover which Jimmy Webb wrote and Donna Summer turned into a big hit.
Check out Erik Kabik’s photos from last night. TAB’s Fall Tour continues tonight at the House Of Blues in San Diego.
