Noteworthy Jams: Twist (highly recommended)
Average Song Gap: 35.26
Notes: Shaggy Dog was played for the first time since October 29, 1995 (574 shows). Runaway Jim and Fluffhead contained When the Saints Go Marching In teases from Trey. Following Stash, Poor Heart and Moma Dance were quickly aborted due to Fishman mistakes. Trey suggested that they play a song that started with drums and Llama was subsequently played. Trey later said that Buffalo Bill was one of his all time personal favorites that starts with the drums. After Buffalo Bill, Trey said Fish was a master of songs that he starts himself. In the Bowie intro, Trey told the crowd that this was Chris Kuroda's favorite Phish song (having Kuroda give a thumbs up to confirm), adding that "every day back stage, before we walk on, we say 'Chris? What should we play tonight?' and he only says one song. Every night." DWD was unfinished. Twist contained an Eleanor Rigby tease from Trey and a Heaven on Their Minds (from Jesus Christ Superstar) jam. This show featured the first Fluffhead encore since November 3, 1990 (1,124 shows).
