4 shows in 30 days is hardly a “tour”.

@Cloudy Night…..obviously you don’t have a grasp of what it takes to prepare 4 different symphony orchestras…preparing an orchestra is just a touch different than preparing a 4 or 5 person rock band. It takes substantially more time to get a group that large in synch, especially with unfamiliar music that involves some improvisation (which they are not used to doing)...even when they are professionals.

Will there be a good amount of jamming?

Agreed, @adks12020. At least Trey gets to work with the same conductor for all four shows who will know the scores/tempi/changes, etc. These orchestras have never seen the arrangements they are going to be handed — they’ve played the Tchaik violin concerto 50 times with 50 different soloists with their part always the same — and they’re going to be hard, knowing Trey’s attention to detail. This is no joke for Trey or the 100 musicians with him on stage to make it sync. We’ve been waiting for him to play the Pittsburgh Symphony since the Baltimore show. It’s gonna be a rager!

Anyone go to Atlanta? I’m going to the Pittsburgh show and was wondering how the experience and vibe were.
