Trey introduced Dog Log with "There's enough of those damn signs out there." Dog Log was last played on August 2, 2003 (172 shows). Hood was unfinished. Prior to Sleeping Monkey, Trey teased the Star Wars theme and said "Fish, when you get to the end of this beautiful song, one last time for all of us. One final tuck." Trey added that "it's been a beautiful two days, but it wouldn't be complete without seeing Fish tuck his dress into his underwear one last time" and "I'm singing this one right to you Fish, because I am your father." Trey proceeded to sing to Fish using Mike's mic. Tweezer Reprise contained Sleeping Monkey quotes from Fish.

Carl "Geerz" Gerhard sat in on trumpet for Party Time. Trey introduced Gerhard as having come to the School of Phish in 1991 and talked about Gerhard's teaching career in the Armed Services. Trey acknowledged the crowd's request by playing Tube. During I Didn't Know, Trey said that they took Fish on the road in 1983 and he went to the Phish School of Music, adding that he was now the executive officer of the "Air Force." Trey said he didn't think Fish should be representing the vacuum cleaners without tucking in his shirt (a.k.a. his dress) and asked him to do so (Fish complied). Antelope included alternate lyrics "Been you to tuck in your dress, man?" "Tuck, tuck, tuck, tuck" and "Tuck in your dress man, you're out of control!" Trey also said that for 30 years, Fish has been leaving his dress untucked and told everybody to tuck in their dresses. Mike, Trey, and Page tucked in their shirts before the setbreak bow. Split Open and Melt included the alternate lyrics "Split open and tuck." Backwards Down the Number Line contained a DEG tease from Trey. Lengthwise included an invitation for audience members to appear on stage and tuck (a few fans came on stage), contained alternate lyrics "When you're there, I sleep tuckwise, and when you're tucked, I sleep, you really have to tuck" and "I sleep diagonal in my tuck," and Trey wielding a light saber, saying "the force is weak with that one. And that one too. But the force is strong with that one."  The audience was subsequently called out by Fish, Trey, and Page, in part being told repeatedly "You suck at tucking" over the Maze intro. The Maze intro also featured Trey asking Chris Kuroda to turn off the lights while he waved the light saber around, talked like Darth Vader, saying "I am your father, Fish. I am your father," and played the guitar with his light saber. Fire contained more Tuck references, with Trey saying "Tuck it!" and the alternate lyrics "Let the Tucker take over!" Mike and Trey sported sombreros for Mexican Cousin.

Harpua included a Happy Birthday tease from Trey and featured all of the band's fathers voicing the part of Jimmy's father. For the third Father's Day in a row, Brother was performed and featured all of the band's children on stage and subsequent introductions. The theme to Leave it to Beaver was teased by Mike prior to DWD. This show marked the Phish debut of Thunder Road, which was dedicated by Trey to Clarence Clemons (who had passed away a day earlier). Near the end of Sand, there was a lengthy pause before the band finished the song.

This show marked the Phish debut of Cold Water (Tom Waits) and the debut of Idea. Tube was played in response to the crowd requesting it.

At the start of Ya Mar, a naked guy jumped onstage and ran around for a bit before being rounded up by security, prompting Trey to observe that "Naked Guy's" antics "took a lot of balls." During Ya Mar, Mike changed the lyrics to "he was a naked pa." Trey sang the verses to Light out of order. The sound for Mike's bass dropped out during Golgi leading Trey to label it the "trio version." During the ensuing Antelope, Mike took a bass solo to make up for the bass everyone missed in Golgi. Antelope also contained several lyric changes referencing the naked stage crasher.

Sanity (not played since November 27, 1998 or 188 shows) ended prematurely right after the “world explodes” line (additionally, one of the large, white balloons that was hung from the rafters popped, as if on cue, as Trey sang "world explodes"). Disease was also unfinished. This show marked the Phish debuts of Undermind and She Thinks I Still Care. Frankenstein featured Page on keytar. Mike and Fish teased Seven Below in Twist. Before Contact, the band and audience sang Happy Birthday to Fish’s Dad, Leonard, and the end of Contact featured a Happy Birthday jam. During Tweezer Reprise, balloons were dropped into the crowd. The post-show music included "Sweet Virginia" from Exile on Main Street.

Reba did not have the whistling ending. Beauty of a Broken Heart made its Phish debut at this show. Guelah Papyrus was played for the first time since September 18, 2000 (78 shows) and ADITL was played for the first time since September 30, 2000 (70 shows). Weekapaug contained a DEG tease from Trey.

Phish’s first public performance since Coventry on August 15, 2004 started with Fluffhead, a song not played since prior to the first hiatus on September 29, 2000 (70 shows). Also of note, several large, white balloons were hung in a circle around the coliseum, lit up by an additional central lighting rig; the balloons (save for a few casualties) would remain for the entire run. Trey introduced Fish as “Dad” during I Didn’t Know. Train Song was not played since May 23, 2000  (111 shows) and Grind was not played since December 30, 1998 (181 shows). During Bouncing, some of the balloons were dripped into the crowd. This show featured the Phish debut of Backwards Down the Number Line. YEM featured a false start possibly as a nod to the January 3, 2003 restarted version.

Trey teased Waves before Bathtub Gin. All of These Dreams was preceded by a Fluffhead tease. After several glowsticks hit Trey’s rig at the end of Seven Below, Trey’s guitar tech, Brian Brown, had to come onstage to do some damage control, prompting Trey to say some words of thanks. Seven Below contained a Mary Had a Little Lamb tease from Trey. Contact culminated in a Little Drummer Boy jam.

Anything But Me and Friday both debuted. Ya Mar contained a Stash teaase from Trey. Weekapaug was unfinished. During 2001, Trey thanked the fans and talked about how fortunate the band was to be able to share the reunion with them. Trey, Mike and Page each took an individual “big rock ending” vamp before the band ended the song together.

Phish introduced two more concert debuts: Pebbles and Marbles and All of These Dreams. Trey restarted YEM after a sloppy attempt at the composed beginning section. Trey teased San-Ho-Zay in YEM. One portion of the YEM vocal jam was based on the name “George Takei” (the actor who played Mr. Sulu on Star Trek) and another was based on the melody to Tweezer Reprise. Lyrics in Makisupa referenced “fatty,” “Waffle House,” and “Hooters.” The end of Possum included bizarre on-stage antics with Page playing Trey’s guitar from his seat, Trey playing Mike’s bass, and Mike using the “B” and “Ah” cymbals normally reserved for Cracklin’ Rosie. This improvisational Contact continued the joke of mock introductions, as Trey introduced “Al Gore.”

SET 1: Tumblin' Down [1], Outer Space[1]


Gin included Spill the Wine and San-Ho-Zay teases. Trey referenced the New Year’s Eve Tom Hanks prank by again “introducing” Hanks, this time prior to It’s Ice. Round Room, Mexican Cousin, Thunderhead, and 46 Days (complete with a Can’t You Hear Me Knocking tease) all debuted. Antelope included a tease of the James Bond theme from Page. 

Dog Log was dedicated to Paul Languedoc. Afterwards, the band reprised the song for a few seconds after Trey remarked how much he liked it. Inlaw Josie Wales featured Trey on acoustic guitar. 2001 included Do You Feel Like We Do (Peter Frampton) teases; Trey also introduced Page as ‘Bob Mayonnaise,’ likely a reference to Bob Mayo, who played keys on Frampton Comes Alive. Sand contained a Super Bad tease from Trey. Weekapaug included Norwegian Wood and Buffalo Bill teases.

Soundcheck: Bug, You Enjoy Myself (partial), Magilla, Driver, Sleep, Dirt, Back at the Chicken Shack

Birds included a Days Between jam from Page and Mike and several If I Only Had a Brain teases from Trey. Birds subsequently featured strange lyrics from Mike and Trey, including an Uno reference. During Meatstick, Trey and Mike put down their instruments, came to the front of the stage and taught the crowd The Meatstick Dance. Simple ended akin to Coil, with each member of the band leaving the stage until only Page was left. At the beginning of the encore, Fish came out holding the Electrolux vacuum and the band launched into Terrapin (first since July 11, 1996, or 212 shows).

Fish chimed in with quotes of “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It” during BBFCFM and Tubthumping. BBFCFM also contained a Leave it to Beaver theme tease from Mike. This show featured the breakouts of Cry Baby Cry (first since June 16, 1995, or 278 shows) and Nellie Kane (first since December 8, 1994, or 293 shows). Weekapaug contained Mango Song teases from Trey. Tubthumping, a Phish debut, featured Tom Marshall on lead vocals and Carl Gerhard on trumpet and had the official recording's intro playing over the P.A. before Phish started to play. Trey called Fish "Sammy... Sammy Hagar The Horrible" toward the end of the song before also quoting "Gettin' Jiggy Wit' It." This show was released as part of the Hampton Comes Alive box set.

This show featured the Phish debut of Rock and Roll Part Two, though Trey accompanied the recorded version playing over the P.A. on December 31, 1994. Quinn the Eskimo was played for the first time since August 10, 1987 (1,150 shows). Stash included a Fikus tease. Page teased Tequila in Bathtub Gin. Driver featured Trey on acoustic guitar. For the Phish debut of Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It, Fish read from cue cards that he threw into the crowd afterwards. Fish also replaced Will Smith’s name in the lyrics with his own alias, “Bob Weaver.” Cavern featured Carl Gerhard on trumpet. This show was released as part of the Hampton Comes Alive box set.

AC/DC Bag included an Electric Funeral tease. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was played for the first time since August 13, 1996 (152 shows). Terrapin Station made its Phish debut at this show, as the band commemorated the third anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s passing.

Mike's Song and Tweezer both contained BEK teases, with the ones in Tweezer taking place well before the segue into BEK. Fans of stage banter will want to seek out the second set for Trey’s humorous response to the crowd’s Destiny Unbound chant before Halley’s. The "Marco Esquandolas" lyric in Antelope was changed to "Michael Esquandolas." This show was released as part of the Hampton/Winston-Salem '97 box set.

Emotional Rescue made its Phish debut at this show and included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Rescue was subsequently quoted at the end of Melt and Lawn Boy. This humorous Lawn Boy featured an “anti-drum solo” - an intentionally boring one. The first set ended with the delay loop ending of Caspian played until after lights were brought back up. Trey teased Yours Is No Disgrace and Call to the Post prior to Guyute. This show was released as part of the Hampton/Winston-Salem '97 box set.

The jam during Bathtub Gin featured Trey jumping up and down in time with a syncopated jam, as well as strong Drowned teases. Near the end of the jam, Trey mentioned how good it was to be back home and named the four newer songs that were played. The beginning of Bowie included Radar Love teases from Mike and a Birdland jam and Wolfman’s included a Bathtub Gin tease. The jam out of Theme, as well as Funky Bitch, featured LeRoi Moore on saxophone. The jam with LeRoi included a segment where he played two saxes, Trey played three guitars, Mike played two basses and the Cracklin’ Rosie cymbals, Fish had four drumsticks and Page was lying across his keyboards playing as many as possible. At  one point, Trey grabbed two drumsticks and played them on Fish's cymbals and his guitar before tossing them into the crowd. LeRoi also teased the Woody Woodpecker theme during the jam.


The first set Poor Heart was the original version and the second set Poor Heart was the slow, shuffle version. The Poor Heart Reprise to start the encore was even slower, but only a few lines of the song were played. Runaway Jim contained a Nellie Kane tease from Mike. This Kung was performed differently than most; it was sung in a hymn-like fashion somewhat akin to Yerushalayim Shel Zahav. The jam out of Mike’s Song featured the first known Rotation Jam, which also included a segment where each band member was playing one of Page’s keyboards (although it was not Keyboard Army) and included a Smoke on the Water tease. My Long Journey Home and I’m Blue I’m Lonesome were performed acoustic; the latter featured a mandolin solo from Fish. The soundcheck's Funky Bitch was the slow version and contained Poor Heart lyrics.

Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Johnny B. Goode and Three Little Birds made their Phish debuts at this show, the latter with a guest appearance by LeRoi Moore and Dave Matthews. Tweezer included a tease of A Live One’s Montana. Stash segued out of Curtain and included Curtain teases.

Divided Sky contained an All Fall Down signal. Miscommunication within the student-run venue staff led to a premature signaling for the second set to end. Following an extended break to "discuss" the matter with staff, the band returned for an unusually long encore. Tweezer Reprise featured an atypical extended ending.

Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Page teased the theme to Speed Racer in Antelope. Between Mike’s Song and Simple, a dozen or so members of a girls soccer team took the stage for a cheer. Foreplay/Long Time was performed acoustic.


Sean Hoppe, an audience member, was invited on stage during Harpua to sing Honky Tonk Women as Jimmy. The Antelope intro and HYHU subsequently included Harpua teases. Antelope also contained a Rhapsody in Blue tease from Page. Split Open and Melt included a vocal jam. Love You contained band intros and an unusually long vacuum solo. Both the YEM vocal jam and Sparkle had “Redrum” screeches from Trey, referencing the movie The Shining. Trey also used his megaphone during YEM.

Suzy contained Sunshine of Your Love teases by Page and Trey. Trey also teased Rhythm-A-Ning and The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana) in Magilla and sang some of the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was played for the first time since August 17, 1992 (159 shows). YEM and Rainbow featured Dave Matthews, LeRoi Moore, Boyd Tinsley, Carter Beauford, and Stefan Lessard from Dave Matthews Band. YEM also featured Fish on vacuum. Matthews was Trey’s substitute trampoline jumper during YEM. The opening act was Dave Matthews Band.

Before Fish’s vacuum solo in I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish as “Greazy Fizeek” and suggested that he will “paint a musical picture in his mind with the Hoover vacuum cleaner about what he thinks of Mike’s special black socks that he is wearing tonight.” My Sweet One contained an extended pause and a Random Note signal before the ending. Trey briefly teased Purple Haze during the intro to Cavern.

This single-set performance was part of the H.O.R.D.E. Festival that also featured Allgood, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Blues Traveler, The Samples, and Widespread Panic. YEM was unfinished and featured Chan Kinchla and John Popper among other guests (including Jimmy Herring, Matt Mundy, Todd Park Mohr, and other members of ARU and Big Head Todd). Popper was offstage playing the harmonica while an effigy of Popper was lowered to the stage in a wheelchair. As part of the gag, the cord snapped and sent the effigy tumbling to the stage through the trampoline!

Reba contained Stash teases from Trey. The Horse featured Trey on acoustic guitar and Faht featured Fish on acoustic guitar. Weekapaug was unfinished.

Fish played this show wearing nothing but a jockstrap with a big “0,” referencing his “Zero Man” nickname, on the groin area. Antelope included a Lizards tease from Trey and a Simpsons signal, Esther included a Random Note signal, and Possum included a Birdland tease and an All Fall Down signal. Rock Lobster (B-52s) was teased prior to the start of the second set. Some recordings that circulate include Rift at the beginning but it is believed that this is from the soundcheck.

It's Ice contained Call to the Post teases from Page. YEM included a tease of We're Off to See the Wizard and several For the Love of Money teases from Mike. The YEM vocal jam was briefly based on a "white boys attack" theme. Setting Sail subsequently arose from the vocal jam.

Weekapaug featured screaming band members and a Mainstreet tease. Brother and Cavern featured Carl Gerhard on cornet. Before I Didn’t Know (which featured Fish on Bag-Vac), Trey introduced Fish as “Clifford O'Sullivan, a beacon of light in the world of flight.”

Prior to the start of the show, Fish announced that Phish had changed their name to Mrs. Pizza Shit. Chalk Dust, Llama, Poor Heart, Harry Hood, and the conclusion of both sets (as well as the start of the second set) all featured references to Mrs. Pizza Shit. Poor Heart and Hood also had bandmembers calling each other "Mrs. Pizza Shit." Page teased Blue Monk during the Rhombus Narration. In Lawn Boy, Page referred to Trey as "Lawn Boy" prior to him taking a guitar solo. Before Love You, Fish apologized for not wearing his Zero Man outfit, explaining that he didn't have his jock strap with him. He said that the last time he was there some girl said "Hey you can see his balls!" and so that was it for Zero Man without the jock strap. Possum contained two Charlie Chan signals and Simpsons and Popeye signals (but, notably, the band responded to the Popeye signal by singing a random note, which is the Random Note signal's "secret language").
