Former Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio has lined up a string of fall dates to promote his first post-Phish album. Anastasio will hit the road next week with his new backing band, 70 Volt Parade, in the run up to the November 1 release of Shine.
Anastasio and 70 Volt Parade will play Asheville, North Carolina, on October 7, sandwiched between spots opening for the Rolling Stones in Charlottesville, Virginia, the night before and Durham, North Carolina, the night after (see "Metallica Opening For Rolling Stones In San Francisco"). Anastasio and his band will then take a few weeks off before heading to Las Vegas for the first Vegoose Festival, playing a late-night show on October 28 at the Aladdin Theatre and joining Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson and the Flaming Lips at Sam Boyd Stadium on October 29.
The tour will start in earnest on November 2 in Minneapolis at the Orpheum Theatre and include a two-night stand at San Francisco's SF Weekly Warfield on December 2 and 3.
Anastasio has played with several different lineups since Phish called it quits last year (see "Phish Bid New York Fond Adieu At Farewell Shows"), and the new band features drummer Skeeto Valdez, bassist Tony Hall, multi-instrumentalist Les Hall, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski and backup singers Jennifer Hartswick and Christina Durfee.
