WEIR & LESH CATCH A PHISH
3/5/18

Phish’s Trey Anastasio spent Saturday night rolling deep into the Grateful Dead’s back catalog with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh at Radio City Music Hall, the second of six dates by the Dead’s guitarist and bassist on their first-ever duo tour.

After a 70-minute opening set highlighted by Weir and Lesh riffing their way through a medley of “Cassidy” and “Touch of Grey,” the trio and drummer Wally Ingram delivered lengthy interpretations of “Playing in the Band,” “The Wheel” and “Dark Star.” They saved “Ripple” for last, which received a rather loud sing-along.

The duo tour heads to Boston (3/7-8) and Chicago (3/10-11). Lesh has three festival gigs with his Terrapin Family Band—3/16-18 in Chandler, Ariz., 4/19-21 in Live Oak, Fla., and 5/25-27 in Geneva, Minn.—and a show with Steve Winwood at Port Chester, N.Y.’s Capitol Theatre on 3/14.

Weir resumes touring with Dead & Co. on 5/30 with a 26-show tour that includes stops at New York’s Citi Field on 6/15-16 and Dodger Stadium on 7/7.
