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.

Heavy Things was performed acoustic. The Percussion Parade saw Trey lead the band playing cowbell through the audience, through the lobby, out onto the street (Broadway), and around the corner where they returned through the side stage door.

Led by Jon Fishman, the gathering attracted roughly 1,600 participants.  Whether the ensemble was indeed the largest of its kind is still being confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records.  Most of the proceeds from the event were donated to WaterWheel Foundation's Vermont Flood Recovery Fund, which helps to repair the devestation left by Hurricane Irene.
