This show was part of the Lockn' Festival, an "Interlocking" music festival where several acts performed full sets with special guests.

This show was part of the Summer Camp Music Festival and took place on the Sunshine Stage. The show was cut short due to inclement weather.

This show was part of DelFest. Before "I'm Blue, I'm Lonesme," Trey related a story about his travels in the early 90s with Col. Bruce Hampton & ARU, about how the ARU mandolin player, Matt Mundy, had turned Phish on to Blue Side of Town by Del McCoury, and how that then became a staple of road music in Phish's van. Trey then noted Del's appearance at Phish's 1999 Oswego festival, and how excited he was to now be playing at Del's festival. "I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome" and "Beauty of My Dreams" featured guests Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury, Jason Carter, and Rob McCoury. "Heavy Things" and "Black Dog" featured Ronnie McCoury, Jason Carter, and Rob McCoury.

SET 1: O-o-h Child

No known setlist


Due to Hurricane Sandy, this show was originally postponed until November 5, 2012, which was also subsequently cancelled due to the continued aftereffects of the storm. A short January tour was then scheduled that included two dates at the Capitol Theatre on January 23-24, 2013, presumably to make up for the prior cancellations.

Before the Trey debut of "Tube" Trey told the story of the common origin of "Tube" and "Gumbo:" he and Fish were roomates in 1985, where Fish would leave his personal journals around the house; Trey would read them when Fish was away and write songs to them.
