Manteca was played for the first time since October 30, 1998 (301 shows) and the ensuing YEM vocal jam contained Manteca quotes. Before midnight, several groups of multiethnic dancers appeared on stage and sang the Meatstick lyrics in their respective languages. The band joined the dancers and then stealthily disappeared from the stage, only to reappear at the other side of the arena in the giant hotdog from past NYE shows ('94 and '99). As a result, portions of the Meatstick were pre-recorded. Auld Lang Syne was sung with the Meatstick singers while Trey played guitar. Appropriately, the post-show music was Captain Beefheart's Tropical Hot Dog Night.

Join the Band (the first track of Waiting for Columbus) was played over the P.A. before the start of the second set.  Subsequently, Phish was introduced as "Little Feat" before Fat Man in the Bathtub. In the tradition of some of Phish's previous crowd experiments in the early '90s, flyers explaining a new Secret Language prank were included in the Phishbills that were passed out to fans as they walked into the show. The prank, designed to confuse those who would later listen to the recording, consisted of an announcer introducing Phish (as Little Feat). When the announcer would say a letter of the band FEAT ("Give me an F!"), the crowd would respond with letters corresponding to PHISH ("P-H!"). All of the songs in the second set other than Time Loves a Hero were Phish debuts. All of the songs in the second set, other than Don't Bogart That Joint and Willin', featured Giovanni Hidalgo on percussion.

Don't Bogart That Joint was performed a cappella. Trey introduced the guest musicians at the start of Feats Don't Fail Me Now and Page teased "Charge!" during the introductions. At the conclusion of the second set, the entire band marched the perimeter of the floor. Disease was unfinished, was initially botched, and had to be restarted, prompting Fish to declare, "This one's off our album." Julius featured Giovanni Hidalgo and the Waiting for Columbus horn section.
