PORTLAND — After playing four sold-out, year-end shows with Phish at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Trey Anastasio and his band are touring in support of his new solo album, "Traveler." That tour includes a stop at the State Theatre on Sunday, Jan. 20
Anastasio has received Grammy nominations for both his recordings with Phish and his solo work. Together with Amanda Green ("Bring It On: The Musical," "High Fidelity"), he wrote the music for "Hands On A Hardbody," a new musical by Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright that premiered at La Jolla Playhouse in La Jolla, Calif., and will open on Broadway in the 2012-13 season.
Anastasio has also collaborated with such artists as Dave Matthews, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Toots and the Maytals, B.B. King and The Roots — and as part of the trio Oysterhead with Les Claypool of Primus and Stewart Copeland of The Police.
General admission tickets to the 8 p.m. concert are $42.50. They may be purchased at the Cumberland County Civic Center box office, by calling 800-745-3000 and online at www.statetheatreportland.com. The State Theatre is at 609 Congress St.
