Trey Anastasio Plots February Solo Tour With Classic TAB Band

January 5, 2010 12:00 AM ET

Last year's Phish reunion ended with a New Year's Eve blowout in Miami, and Trey Anastasio is wasting no time returning to the stage. The guitarist will hit the road for a month-long tour with his Classic TAB band in February. The tour kicks off February 8th in Charlottesville, Virginia. That date marks what would have been the 47th birthday of Trey's sister Kristine, an environmentalist and author who died last April of neuroendocrine cancer; all proceeds from the February 8th show will go toward the Kristine Anastasio Manning Memorial Fund. Classic TAB promises set lists stocked with selections from Anastasio's solo canon. An online ticket request begins tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET a Trey Tickets.

Phish's most recent tour wrapped with a four-night stand at Miami's American Airlines Arena, culminating with a New Year's Eve concert that featured the band performing songs like "Swept Away" and "Demand" for the first time in nearly a decade. Other 2009 highlights for the band included two nights headlining the Bonnaroo Festival, their Festival 8 in Indio, California (complete with a set dedicated to the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St.) and gigs at Boston's Fenway Park.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
