Trey Anastasio to tour Summer 2001

Trey returns to the road this summer with an ever-expanding band, playing nineteen concerts across the U.S. this July and August.

Kicking off the tour July 11 with a week of dates on the west coast, Trey and his band will trek east playing amphitheatres, including two-night stands at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA and Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Denver. The tour wraps up at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY on August 5.

The tour marks Trey’s third solo outing with the same rhythm section — bassist Tony Markellis and drummer Russ Lawton. Originally a trio when Trey toured in the spring of 1999, Anastasio added Dave Grippo on saxophone, Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet and Andy Moroz on trombone for a three week tour this past February. The group of six will become eight this summer when Trey adds saxophonist Russell Remington (of Giant Country horns fame) and keyboardist Ray Paczkowski to the mix.
