Hey anybody know the start time for the Bands, can't
figure it out, are their 3 bands and P&F the
2nd Band, I know Trey/Mike Gordon are closing, also is Joan making the show?
Duo is set to open at 4:30.
Phil is on at 6:00. Trey and Mike 9:00.
Obviously these are approximates but they have been very close to schedule thus far.
Reverse tonight - Trey played first......
So as I understand it, the Duo will open @ 4:30 then Phil @ 6:00 and Trey @ 9:00. By the way, I was @ the Tampa show and it kicked ass. Great songs such as Stagger Lee, Peggy O'. The encore was Unbroken Chain, The Wheel, PLayin in The Band and Gimmi Shelter.
Is Joan on board tonight?
Wheres SCO? sucks ive managed to miss every show with Sco. Ill see you guys Sunday and Monday.
8/12 Tom Petty w/ Allmans

and that is it. about a 55min first set, but I cannot sat enough about how good this was. Totally a different level than Camdenam and a different feel. Much more 'GD' like.
wish you were here Mr.(and Mrs.) Chips
I told ya the sound was better than tweeter at camden. much more 'festive' as July 4th gets closer, and some of the home-town boys are in their element.
short sets are fine, as long as they're good. this one sounds like a real toe-tapper.

Those of you hreading upward to SPAC and onward, be safe and revel in this. I will be looking for YOUR updates and listening to the flacs and shns. Thank you all, esp the generous tapers.
From the thread, the setlist looks like it should read this way. Thanks for the reports. Updates and corrections welcome.

#w/ Mike Gordon on electric banjo
*w/ Trey Anastasio on guitar
I think the 'teases' should be nixed as they are in the mind's eye of the beholder, and this beholder is still holding from the Feb tour, lol.
you might need a * for the encore also ....
is Phil still hangin' 'round for a possible song with closing act?
THatLooks fresh and fun... How was the Playing overall. Compare to Camden.
Thanks for the play by play!!!
WOW! These shows are indeed getting better each night on this tour, already agureably the tour of the year and still so young, I can not imagine what SPAC will be, but I bet it will be even better still.
OH MAN!!! You guys all my favorite songs, no chance I will get an Eyes at SPAC or Hartford now. You guys got a smoker here, what a set list. OH well, still totally excited for both shows, this band is a good one! Interested to see some reviews.
the playing was as good or better. the sound was a little better.
the playin' was good, but I guess they saved the reprise for another night....'
barry's pedal steel was much more audible tonight, and I love that! perhaps the fact that trey was not out there accounts foe that.
Just got back from the Phil set at PNC (had no desire to stay for GRAB). The sets were compact and more song oriented than most other Phil and Friends shows I have seen, but the placed ROCKED. Great show if you like your Phil with less jamming and more singing.
Just a bit disappointed that the two sets were a bit shorter than any other Phil show I have ever seen. (First set about 55 - 60 min, second set about 80 - 90 minutes).
On the other hand the sound was mixed perfectly. I was a row or two right over the soundboard... and had great site-lines to the stage!!!
encore was gdtrfb with trey. Incredible show, the phish heads were lovin' it too.
Oh man, you folks got a Here Comes Sunshine?!? I am One Seriously Jealous Floridian!! And, considering I saw all three hot Florida shows, that's something!!
Hope the Slipknot was nice; it was killer in Boca.
Quote "Oh man, you folks got a Here Comes Sunshine?!?"
Nope - just a short "tease" that lasted maybe, what sounded to me like 15 seconds.
A very high energy show made better by a bunch of great Zoners.
Now, the downside:
I had never heard Greg Osby play before. His rep preceding him made me think that, if not in Ornette Coleman's league, he was at least a peer of Branford or Dave Murray. He's more like Clarence Clemons. Pretty much by the books. Competent, but not spectacular. Shame on me for too high an expectation.
And to Mike Gordon, if you want to play the banjo in front of a lot of people, take few lessons first. You suck.
I left after Phil, low on batteries, cigarettes, and energy, So I already have a torrent of the Phil portion of this show here:
I will B&P or trade the copy I made tonight for you all, email is in the profile. I got to DAT Phil & GRAB so let me know what all you would want.
I'd like to think phil folks read these blogs. if so, perhaps they heard us re: not being able to hear barry at camden. As a result, he's 'much more audible' the next night at PNC!!
thnx to Rich for the play-by-play.
>And to Mike Gordon, if you want to play the >banjo in front of a lot of people, take few >lessons first. You suck.
I didn't hear the show but Mike is a VERY serious banjo player who has been playing since the late 80s. He quite frequently pops up at bluegrass festivals and has been seriously studying (with some highly respected bluegrass players) and playing for over 20yrs. Perhaps he didn't sounds good last night but he far from sucks.
I agree that MG played a nice Banjo
What a show!!!!!
ALSO, FOR WHOEVER PUTS UP THE OFFICAL SETLIST ON PHILZONE:
add an askerisk to the encore. Trey was there
Awesome show!! Its great to have Phil in the NY area for a while, and the see such energy going on at these shows. Let the Phil bombs fly!!!
No one's mentioned LC yet on this thread, but I thought he finally stepped up last night and really smoked, part of what made it such a killer show. But I wanted to ask, how was GRAB? I didn't saty and it seemed like a fair number of us made out way quietly out after the real show was over. Did it feel like people had left, or was it just as full, or was it more full, what with night falling and all? How long did they play? And how were they? I mean, I thought they were pretty good in Camden, but certainly not good enough to follow Phil, especially not after that great show last night. Besides, I don't think I've ever seen a support act encore before, and we've all seen some pretty serious support acts through the years -- Hell, Ratdog didn't encore before Phil came out, and Phil never encored before Dylan came out, just in relatively recent years. It seems just in general to diminish Trey's set; but then again, I didn't stay to see how it turned out. So, how was it?
Mike's hardly a poor banjo player. I wasn't at the show, but I'd be surprised if the home-boy 'sucked' in his own element last night.
Very interesting show last evening and here are my random thoughts about it all.
Vibe: Nice, sunny tour day. The Shakedown was a bit subdued because of a heavy police vibe. Still, if adaptation is the keystone of humanity, then everyone rose above said adversity. I am going through an amazingly gifted part of my life. My first children’s book is being published in the fall (tip of the hat to Robert Hunter and my own personal Scarlet), facilitating a move to VT and just really enjoying life. Because of all the good in my life I decided to pass on the abundance of great tickets I have for this tour by passing on a few to those less fortunate…strangers stopping stranger. The only downer, for me, was seeing two former friends; saying hello to them with a smile upon my face and seeing them look like a fear-struck wide-eyed deer caught in the headlight. Sad, but we all have our own demons to deal with.
Venue: PNC has been one of my least favorite venues to see a show for a long time. Sound is often problematic and uneven. I was lucky enough to be in the 12th row center last night and the sound was stellar in that location. The staff was pretty cool last night and that is not always the case. A couple of years ago David Bowie stopped the show to lambaste the up front security and stated that the show would not be resumed until the security people who were upstaging Bowie were removed. Management removed them and the show went on.
P & F played a high-energy show. Nice addition of Mike Gordon on banjo. Too bad he was somewhat buried in the mix at times. Listened to the Instant Live recording on the way home and I can assure you that he played strong and true. It definitely added to the songs. Funky Stagger Lee with expressive low-end support by Phil. I would love to see Phil and Molo do a straight funk project one day…‘dey got da groove…would love to see them, maybe with Osby, do a jazz/funk project ala The Headhunters. I enjoyed Sugaree for the most part but I am starting to think that Joan would like to branch out a bit more. Not as good as some of her versions, not at all bad. Hey, you outdo yourself every outing. Now can you? Indeed, Scarlet was being teased and Phil did one of his quarterback audibles to break out Eyes. Does anyone else enjoy when Phil does that. There is so much talk going on between the players at times. It might be the best use of electronics I have seen on stage. Go Team! Strange vibe during Magnolia Mountain with some of the crowd getting into “just give me the hits” mode. In my opinion, I just don’t get it. MM is one of the most haunting, beautiful songs of the past few decades and Joan really did it justice. The pain in her voice came close to the recording version by RA. Gotta love the oh, so sad slide playing…cry me a tune Mr. Pedal Steel. I like all musicians playing with living, breathing, full-of-life bands. Phil, keep on playing any damn thing you want, whenever you want. A muse is a terrible thing to waste. I hope the new songs that Ryan and Phil have recorded together will make it out in some form to the public. They really are wonderful.Killer Help>Slipknot>Franklins with bombs galore. Trey’s mix was off, and again, it sounds even better on the recording. I really enjoyed this one a lot.
GRAB was a surprise for me. I am really liking this lineup. It seems to focus Trey into a tighter space and he has risen to the occasion. Everyone on stage was focused and on fire. Too bad so many people decided to leave after Phil. These line up deserves a solid listen. I had the pleasure of sitting next to Mama Benevento (must be from Northern Italy...blonde hair, blue eyes..que bella) and it was great to see her vibing on her son’s performance. I have to agree with her…this kid can play. Hell, they all can play. Of course a band can rarely go wrong busting out The Beatles Get Back. Get back home Marco. You’re momma’s waiting for you.
Well, off to SPAC. I still have a pair of Jones Beach tickets. Shake some strangers hand and you never know what might happen.
GRAB was very enjoyable. Trey was focused as were the other members of that lineup. B-V are EXCELLENT musicians.
Plenty of people stayed for GRAB. WE only stayed for about an hour or so as we were beat from the night before and had to head back to Philly area. My wife enjoyed the GRAB as well, and she is known as the 'picky palate', lol.
Damn, I wish the tour could go on for me, but I am just into a new doctoring job. I will spread the energy to everyone I come in contact with, and that is its own blast.
Good Show , good energy,
i thought they played well with a good song selection. Good venue, lots of green grass and trees.
I would prefer to see Phil play last, he should never go on before anyone and he should never have time limitations. And hand Barry Sless a guitar please, he needs to dual w/Larry Campbemll.
*there was this guy in at the information booth complaining that he wanted to file an official complaint that he came to see Phil and friends and not some other band headline, the informtion people and myself tried to explain to him that it was Phil's decision, not the venue's and that he should write to Phil (lol) he had his mother with him, he was well in his forties, and insisted that 'i came to see phil from the Grateful Dead play, not some Vermont jug band'.
Trey's band was good, nothing epic, but good.
"Yo Walt... what's the deal w/ Rat Dog in Hampton Beach?? Not on any schedules?? Are they confirmed?"
Its comfirmed Aug 24th Hampton Beach. Also Atlantic City 8-18 @ HOB is pretty much comfirmed.
Also theres about 7 more dates a coming.
Those are the 3 links. Also i beleive theres a Foxwoods show in the works and possible 3 nite Penns Peak run either on this tour or the Fall tour. Thats all i know for now.
I dug the show BUT -why didnt sless play guitar-i thought the ensemble was kool; but nobody jumped out the mix and played great band leading solos-i was dancin(how could ya help it)but iwas unsatisfied-i really needed sless' jerryisms to make the nite
On the other hand
trey's band was a fire eatin muthfukin dragon!!he's moved up a cupla notches on my fav gittar player list
One more thing-it was great that it was a pot free zone! but there were too many drunks floatin around (but that's my little issue)
Also i got 2 tix for jones beach and i cant go! anybody want em?(face value) JonJll@aol.com
POT FREE ZONE! that sounds so horribly wrong! That is not GRATE! :-P
let me clarify for u and my other spliff burnin brothers and sisters
it was great that security left ya alone and let ya burn without interference!
Not to be a dumb ass, but was is a Phil "bomb?"
Beautiful review up there Tony. The creative burst of the book and the move to Vermont sounds like it has served you well. Nice description of the different paths we can choose. Sounds like you're on a true one!
Strangers stopping strangers
Just to shake their hand.
Everyone is playing
In the heart of gold band.
Phil 'bomb'= big, loud, low-pitched single notes and chords which shake your ass!!!
Barry's 'guitar' was awesome on the fall and winter tours, but I think there are a few reasons for his sticking to the pedal steel.
Number one is that is his niche, 'boogie-woogie' pedal steel, and that IS something very special.
Number two is that the special guests have been frequent, and why should Barry have to move aside so as not to crowd LC and the special guest(Dickie, Trey, Mike, so far).
Apparantly LC is being given the lead guitar, and i have to agree that he is 'coming into his own', i.e. he is 'getting it', the jam band thing, that is. LC is being groomed to join the ranks of great jam band axemen, and I am enjoying seeing his evolution!!
Number three is that it is probably Barry's choice to focus on pedal steel for big chunks He seems to love it, and it is awesome to hear his ripping solos(when you CAN hear them, lol).
Barry is just one big SMILE for me. I love his playing and his auara. He emits great energy!
Just my opinion, though. Maybe Barry or Phil can comment, if they read this....
I finally got my STAGGER!
Sunra - right on. That's exactly the way I was thinking. I also think that with Osby out there, having Sless stick to the pedal steel will give the music a new freedom (certainly a new direction at least). Larry really is coming into his own! He is truly awesome.
The Vibes is a lookin spectacular!
Heard it from a little bird that the annoucement wont be made until just a few days before we get together for the concert that we call Gathering of the Vibes. Shhhhh.....
Dead Haven is a comin....
"...and i have to agree that he is 'coming into his own', i.e. he is 'getting it', the jam band thing, that is. LC is being groomed to join the ranks of great jam band axemen, and I am enjoying seeing his evolution!!"
I remember thinking that while he was playing... that he's expanding his harmonic vocabulary and feeling the songs and jams more. I think Phil enjoys showing all these players the way... the whole band is evolving beautifully together. The arrangements, especially the vocal arrangements, are very creative and focusing on each players strengths. Phil's singing...
Don't tease us, what's the big rumor for Vibes?
The rumor is **** its 4 letters starts with a P and ends with a L, and im seein him today in hartford. :-)
I hope if you posted this rumor, you heard it from a reliable source. I would love to see Phil--and of course possibly The Dead at the Vibes--but I don't want a mob scene. Announcing it a few days before--and hopefully putting a limit to the number of tixs they sell, would make sense.
No friday night headliner right now, and I was told by someone who works the vibes that they were negotiating with a "dead related" band/artist, but he couldn't tell me any more since he signed a confidentiality statement.
Either way, my first GOTV is shaping up to be a grate one!
I don't see any indication except wishful thinking/speculation
for Phil at Vibes.
You already have four former band members: Bobby, Mickey, Bill and Donna which just feeds speculation.
woke up from our hotel down by camden and headed up to pnc, got to the lot at prob 11 or so, ahhh maybe 12. prime parking spot in the shade, perfect for cracking a brew.
chilled out for a while, found some friends I knew from hoboken parked close to us so went over there for a bit where I ate some delicious chicken. then went back to our car where spliffy was chilling out. we had a couple beers or so then walked all the way under the bridge where like 4 cars worth of our friends were parked who had caravaned down from boken. it sucked because the night before I'd lost my flip flops on the lawn at camden and walking all that distance was not what I was trying to do. oh well, it was worth it because when we got there this girl I know had these brand new, bright white sneakers that fit me perfectly. they had hot pink stripes on them, but I was able to overlook that. so after hanging out with all them for a while we head into the show.
so we roll in and realize that we are late. stagger lee is being payed. oh well, we missed a few tunes, what can you do at that point? sugaree was good, that's for sure.
second set. playin' was a great opener. I am 95% sure that rob sang it, if I remember correctly. definitely thought they were going into scarlet and then they banged out a smokin' eyes. great playing by phil on this one. I see it above in the setlist, but I don't know about any here comes sunshine tease. I didn't hear it. I think people are a little quick to name teases in the setlists this tour. I mean, if you think you hear them going into something it wasn't nessecarily on purpose, imo. whatever, it doesn't matter. magnolia mountain was good and so was lovelight. I was definitely happy to hear help > slip franks. especially slip. phil and molo nailed the changes perfectly on this one! GDTRFB was a good, fun encore!
grab's set was honestly 10 times better than the night before imo. I don't know what the difference was but it was much better. we stayed for the whole thing. bummer not having phil close this show but, again, what can you do?
good times, good show. I definitely liked camden better musically, but that might have just been because he was the closer and I didn't miss most of the first set.
I'd love to be able to catch another this summer, but I just don't know how it'll be possible. oh well, it was a good couple of shows! thanks phil!
>>>>>>>>>if I remember correctly. definitely thought they were going into scarlet and then they banged out a smokin' eyes. great playing by phil on this one. I see it above in the setlist, but I don't know about any here comes sunshine tease. I didn't hear it.
I thought the exact same thing...
I wooked my way down to the rail in front of Larry where Shmegg was hanging and the view and sound from up there was incredible.
definietley felt the Scarlet Vibe comming out of Playin (which was very well done), and then out of knowhere, WHAMO, EYES, undeinable...
it was sick, well jammed, full on organic romp.
Magnolia Mountain was played PERFECTLY. They nailed every segue, kick, groove, and Joan's vocals sounded like they where comming from the Heavan's above. I was blown away. I've always dug this tune but NEVER heard it sound this good...
the daytime lovelight was a blast. and the Help Slip Franklins was awesome. SLIPKNOT WAS INSANE. OSBY pushed these guys over the top and they defintley broke through too a few uncharted comsmic dimentions. MOLO and Phil where so locked in it was a joke. man was that fun....
by the time they hit Franklins they had built so much energy that not even Trey, could derail this raging beast. He actually fit in pretty well, kept the annoying facial expressions to a minumun and even though he took every solo and didnt seem to be listening to anyone in the band but himself, it came off ok, and at one point they hit this one chord which was way out there, taking franklin's to "a new a space and time" which IMO is Phil's whole reason for having him up there in the first place to add some freshness and newness to these old, timeless classic Jam vehicles which have stood the test of time, NEVER failing to please....
GDTRFB was an excellent encore and during the WBYGN outro I heard 6 distinct melodies all at the same time which was very cool...
first set highlight was and EXCELLENT Stagger Lee...
I dig PNC as a venue. the lot scene is super kind (kudos to Lites and Pauly Prods for getting there early and setting up in the sweet shady spot under the trees, and throwing an awesome tailgait, filled with tasty grub, cold brew, sweet tunes, and some nice Margaritas courtesy of yours truly). Inside the sound is great, good sitelines and the top looks like a great big trippy, flying saucer...
musically I thought the PNC was best of the three shows I saw with SPAC being a close second and Camden being a distant third secondary to WAY too much of the Trey factor...
sad to say i was disappointed with the show. wanted to hear more dead tunes and not as much trey although trey was pretty sick. i was expecting trey and lesh to collaborate more... guess i got my hopes up.
You people who are disappointed should stop going to live shows, LOL!!!
And GRAB, give me a break. Half the crowd leaves during their set. Phish heads and dead heads agree on this one, LOL.
But Phil brings the real deal every night for sure! And if you doubt it, listen to the discs.
I'm ready for Great Woods!
"sad to say i was disappointed with the show. wanted to hear more dead tunes and not as much trey although trey was pretty sick. i was expecting trey and lesh to collaborate more... "
What? English motherfucker!
PNC slayed. As beautiful a July day as you could ask for. Truckin' Phil bombs, Cumberland smoker, Stagger had me lookin up at the blue skies and thinkin of Jerry. The vibe from Eyes was magnificant. The trilogy to end set 2 was definitely the icing I was looking for.
As far as GRAB goes. I was initially disappointed to hear they were doing predominantly new songs. But after seeing their set, I thought they were on fucking fire! A lot of inspired, and to the point playing from Trey. And Joe Russo is a god-damned drumming animal.
Great day all around.
i was at this show and no fn' way half the crowd left for GRAB--i came for Phil and liked it--didnt know what to expect from trey and mike-but the energy from their set was off the chart--and to top it when trey came out for franklins tower the crowd ROARED. it was the biggest reaction of the evening. i am not biased --just stating facts. i never caught phish back in the day but if the energy at a phish show was equal or greater than what i experienced then it makes me sorry that i never got to see them live.
Just my opinion, but GRAB is second rate compared to Phish or TAB. You'll get your chance to see Phish live soon enough. Too much money at stake!

Hey Goblin! Thanks for the trade!! See you at Scranton?
fuck trey! phil should of headlined... and fuck you why cant i say im disappointed in my opinion i think this show coulda been a lot better so SHUT THE FUCK UP
Kudos to you....that last one is almost intelligable! Some more use of punctuation, and you'll be at a 5th grade level by summers end!
Shouldn't that be "summer's end"?
See that...it's rubbing off!
I am a long time concert goer and GD fan.
My friend and I actually made our first appearance at PNC for P & F this past week.
Here's the problem>
I wanted to see P & F, #1
and most ads I saw indicated they were the headliners.
My ticket infers that, (in US commuciation)>
that is, Phil Lesh is on top of Trey & Mike, thus closes.
So, I get there leisurely, I worked ot that day, and to my suprise,
(I'm shocked, shocked)Phil was playing already !
He was not closing. I basically missed 1/2 of Phil etal !
I spoke to a few folks who said this arrangement was on the site.
Cool. BUT, not everyone goes to the site.
(Coincidentally, Ratdog & SCI are playing in NYC and its stated in a few places , that each other night , one group will open)
Anyway, I'm still a big PLQ fan,, but G's,, this was terrible.
Larry's voice on BIG RIVER was Incredible...nice DEEP Bass Voice...
