Prince’s 1999 made its Phish debut (appropriately) at this show and included dancers on stage and synchronized steps from Trey and Mike, who wound up lying on the stage with the dancers surrounding them. Weekapaug and Runaway Jim subsequently featured 1999 teases; Jim also included Auld Lang Syne teases. Hydrogen contained Albert teases from Trey and Simple included Magilla teases. For this show, the Holiday Run dancers’ costumes included a devil, a prostitute, and a pimp. The band jammed Runaway Jim until just before the New Year. The dancers reappeared throughout the crowd and handed out thousands of glowrings to the fans just before a grand balloon drop and pyrotechnics display at midnight. The band counted the crowd into the New Year before busting into Auld Lang Syne. While some fans used the glowrings to start a Glowstick War during Hood, others used them to create long chain links of rings in the arena.
Moma included Manteca teases. Coil included Piper teases and featured an atypical jam that segued into Slave. The debut of Grind featured Tom Marshall on vocals and was dedicated to Phish fan Chris Heinel, who had recently been injured in a lacrosse accident. Possum included Wipe Out teases. For this show, the Holiday Run dancers were dressed as nymphs.
2001 included Crosseyed and Painless and Manteca teases. For this show, the dancers on-stage were dressed as flowers, with one dressed as a turkey.
For the first show of the Holiday Run, the stage was decorated with flowers and sculptures. During the encore, parts of the set began to grow and sprout leaves. This stage setup was used for this show only, and disappeared for the rest of the run. Before Sleep, Fish’s drum kit was moved to allow the crew to roll out a small mini-stage with a scaled-down drum set and a baby grand piano. Trey and Mike sat on stools and both played acoustic guitars. This acoustic set-up was used for Sleep, Albuquerque, and Driver. During the Wolfman’s jam, three people in inchworm-like costumes came on stage and danced for the rest of the set. Bowie included a tease of the theme from The Godfather.
Mike sat in with Strangefolk for the second set "Lines and Circles" sandwich.
While vacationing in Japan, Fish sat in with Big Frog for an undetermined number of songs. There is no known setlist or circulating recording.
Paul and Silas included alternate lyrics, which told the story of Paul Languedoc’s run-in with the law the night before. This event was referenced again during Makisupa. Maze contained a Shafty tease from Mike. The last two songs of the first set (both Phish debuts) featured Seth Yacovone on guitar; All the Pain also featured Yacovone on vocals. Possum included a Dave’s Energy Guide tease and YEM contained a Super Bad tease from Trey.
Moma contained Gumbo teases from Mike. Scent of a Mule contained a “duel” between Mike and Fish, with Mike donning a Viking helmet similar to the one Fish had been wearing during this tour, and the two “squaring off” as if locked in battle.

This acoustic in-studio set was broadcast live for KBCO’s “Studio C” series.
Driver was dedicated to “Wendy and Lisa,” and Bittersweet Motel was dedicated to the folks at The Dead Goat Saloon (the site of an open mic night appearance by Trey and Mike one night earlier). Driver and Bittersweet Motel featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Bittersweet Motel also contained a Free Bird-style ending. Moma Dance included Monkey Man (Rolling Stones) teases. The Harpua narration picked up where the December 6, 1996 Harpua ended; Jimmy hitched a ride from Vegas to Salt Lake City and the driver was playing Dark Side of the Moon. Dark Side was reportedly chosen the day of the show, partially based on sluggish ticket sales for this one venue compared to the rest of the tour. All the Dark Side songs were Phish debuts except for Great Gig (last played July 5, 1994, or 332 shows), although the original album version of Speak to Me was piped through the P.A. on Halloween, 1994 and Breathe was jammed on October 25, 1995. Smells Like Teen Spirit was also a Phish debut.
On the night off between Phish’s Halloween performance of The Velvet Underground’s Loaded in Las Vegas and their performance of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon within “Harpua” in Salt Lake City, Trey and Mike performed at an open mic night. The jam before “Teach Your Children” included teases of “Summertime” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Joseph Sirotnak performed on guitar and additional vocals from “Cortez the Killer” through “Teach Your Children” and his friend ‘Ken’ added guitar and vocals to “Stir it Up.” An attempt to close with “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?” was aborted when the performers couldn’t remember enough of the words.
Sneakin' Sally included a Super Bad tease from Trey and did not contain a vocal jam. Chalk Dust was unfinished. Mike’s Song included Simple teases. The second set "musical costume" was The Velvet Underground's Loaded. All of the songs in the second set were Phish debuts, except for Sweet Jane and Lonesome Cowboy Bill (which hadn’t been played since June 10, 1995, or 268 shows). The long jam out of Wolfman’s included Makisupa, Lifeboy, and On Your Way Down teases and featured Fish on vacuum. The band left the stage during Ghost, as the sound of Trey’s delay loop ended the set. This show was webcast live and was officially released as Live Phish 16.
This show included the Phish debut of Back at the Chicken Shack, the first Long Cool Woman since the first Phish show, December 2, 1983 (1,206 shows), and the first Manteca since November 14, 1995 (219 shows). Before Long Cool Woman, Trey remarked that “they tell us that this is the exact day” of the band’s fifteenth anniversary, though later research revealed this to be incorrect. Fish teased a return to Long Cool Woman before Antelope but quickly aborted. Tweezer subsequently included Manteca and You Better Believe It Baby teases. Driver featured Trey on acoustic guitar. The entire second set and encore, as well as Antelope, was included as filler on Live Phish 16.

Phish were the musical guests on The Late Show with David Letterman.
This single-set performance, a taping for the PBS television show Sessions at West 54th, was performed in front of roughly 200 fans and industry executives. The show was first broadcast the week of January 9, 1999. Sleep, Driver and Albuquerque were performed acoustic. Trey made jokes about the length of Guyute, remarking that the show could cut to four commercial breaks and the band would still be playing the same song. Taste was played after Trey took the crowd’s requests for the final song. When the show was aired, only Birds, Ghost, and Taste were broadcast, with interviews interspersed between songs.
This single-set performance was part of the 12th annual Bridge School benefit that also included R.E.M., Neil Young, and Barenaked Ladies. This was an acoustic performance, with a unique stage setup that had Fish stage right, with Page on the far left. Hello My Baby was performed with the band facing toward the Bridge School children, who were on a raised platform at the back of the stage. The Old Home Place was performed in the bluegrass setup of 1994, with Mike on banjo and Page on acoustic bass. Sad Lisa featured Sarah McLachlan on guitar and vocals, while Four Strong Winds and I Shall Be Released featured McLachlan and Neil Young on guitar and vocals, as well as Barenaked Ladies’ Kevin Hearn on accordion; all three songs were Phish debuts.

SET 1: Carolina, Sleep[1], Never[1], Possum[2], I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome[3], Free Bird, Driver[1], Wading in the Velvet Sea[2], Harry Hood[4] > Helpless[5]

This single-set performance was part of the 12th annual Bridge School benefit that also included R.E.M., Neil Young, and Barenaked Ladies. This was an acoustic performance, with a unique stage setup that had Fish stage right, with Page on the far left. Carolina was performed with the band facing toward the Bridge School children, who were on a raised platform at the back of the stage. Sleep, Never, and Driver also debuted at this show. I’m Blue I’m Lonesome (first since December 12, 1995, or 195 shows) was performed in the bluegrass setup of 1994, with Mike on banjo and Page on acoustic bass. Free Bird was played for the first time since June 19, 1994 (338 shows). Hood included a tease of Work Song by Page and was unfinished; Neil Young joined in during the Hood jam, and then sang lead on the Phish debut of his own composition, Helpless.
This “under the radar” show was never formally announced by Phish. San Francisco radio station KFOG leaked word of an upcoming “surprise announcement” two weeks before the show, telling Phish fans to tune in on Saturday morning for details. The 11:00 a.m. announcement was that tickets would be sold at noon the vacant Pier 32, prompting a mad rush of fans to the waterfront. Of the several thousand who arrived, roughly four hundred lucky people were able to buy vouchers entitling them to a pair of tickets. Prior to Brian and Robert, Trey said that Fish used to hate the yellow light and that Fish used to have a list of things that he hated, adding that every time they found out something Fish hated, they'd always do it (prompting Page to tease HYHU, which Fish also hates). Fish added that he hated the vowel "ooo" (the crowd responded with "ooo" noises). Trey said the only way to overcome something you hate was to face it head on. Trey then had Chris Kuroda shine a yellow light on Fish for Brian and Robert. Reba did not have the whistling ending. Hood contained a tease of Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. After the show, some fans were given a poster (later for sale from Phish Dry Goods) and a bumper sticker (saying: “We’ve just come from Phish at the Fillmore. It was nice.”).
This single set performance was part of the annual Farm Aid benefit concert which also included Hootie and the Blowfish, The Del McCoury Band, Brian Wilson, Wilco, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Neil Young. The set featured the Phish debuts of Arc, Down By the River, Moonlight in Vermont, Will the Circle Be Unbroken, and Uncloudy Day (although Will the Circle Be Unbroken was also played during the November 19, 1994 “Parking Lot Jam”). Neil Young sat in from Runaway Jim through the end of the set; Willie Nelson and Paul Shaffer sat in during Moonlight in Vermont. Four Native American dancers came onstage before Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Circle featured Willie Nelson on vocals. Amazing Grace was performed for the first time since December 31, 1996 (115 shows) and included instrumental accompaniment. This set was broadcast live on Country Music Television, though the beginning of Runaway Jim was cut from the broadcast.
This was the second show of the Lemonwheel festival. Trey teased Jean Pierre in Possum. Disease was unfinished. Fish alluded to Terrapin (“a love song about a turtle”) after a long HYHU intro but instead led the band into Sexual Healing. Antelope included Sexual Healing teases in the intro and a reference to “Bob Weaver” instead of Marco Esquandolas in the lyrics. 2001 contained Crosseyed and Painless and Super Bad teases from Trey. WMGGW returned for its first appearance since February 26, 1997 (103 shows). A fireworks display took place behind the stage in the jam out of Hood. The jam also featured Fish on trombone.

SOAM was played by request for an eight-year-old boy named Sam Jarvis. Cities included Sneakin’ Sally teases and, along with Halley’s Comet, included alternate lyrics relating to the concert grounds. Gumbo included a Tweezer Reprise-esque jam. Sanity was played for the first time since Halloween 1996 (140 shows). Bowie included a lengthy intro and Mission: Impossible theme teases. After Tweezer Reprise, Trey made a long announcement thanking people for coming and remarked on the fun and joy of the summer concert festivals. He said that there would be some more music, played by the light of candles made that day by fans. The ensuing “ambient jam” was in the style of Brian Eno and was nearly an hour long and included Albert teases from Trey.
This was the soundcheck for Lemonwheel. The set took place on Friday night beginning a little after 11pm, and was broadcast live on Lemonwheel’s official radio station, 88.9-FM, “The Badger.”
Possum was dedicated to its author, Jeff Holdsworth, and Fish’s band in high school, Frodo. Ramble On was played in honor of Fish seeing a Led Zeppelin concert at age eleven and contained Cocaine teases; Slave subsequently included Ramble On teases, as well as Those Were the Days teases from Trey and Mike. The Phish debut of Burning Down the House contained alternate lyrics ("Vernon down the house"). YEM included HYHU and Mission: Impossible theme teases.
This show marked the Phish debut of Trench Town Rock and the return of Time Loves a Hero (first since November 5, 1988, or 1,021 shows). Runaway Jim included a tease of Maria from West Side Story. This show is also available on DVD from Phish Dry Goods.
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.
Sneakin' Sally did not contain a vocal jam. This show marked the Phish debuts of Sweet Jane and Sabotage.
Ghost contained Zan-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. The long, surreal Mockingbird narration offered an “explanation” for the evening’s lunar eclipse. Mockingbird was played for the first time since Halloween, 1996 (135 shows).
This show marked the Phish debut of Runnin' with the Devil, which was also teased during YEM. Trey once again referred to Fish as “Bob Weaver” after Cracklin’ Rosie (played for the first time since August 14, 1996, or 148 shows).
This show marked the Phish debut of Rhinoceros. The Halley’s jam included A Love Supreme teases from Page.  The show also featured the return of Ride Captain Ride, which had not been played since December 30, 1992 (492 shows) and Bike, which had not been played since November 7, 1996 (129 shows). Gumbo included Manteca teases.
The end of Bowie contained Lizards, Possum, and Divided Sky teases from Trey. This show marked the Phish debut of I Get a Kick Out of You.
This show was webcast live and marked the Phish debuts of Ramble On and Been Caught Stealin’, as well as the breakout of Esther (first since October 19, 1996, or 139 shows). 2001 contained Crosseyed and Painless teases from Trey. Chalk Dust included a Jean Pierre tease from Trey.
If I Could was played for the first time since August 5, 1996 (150 shows).
The usually short Buried Alive was jammed for almost fifteen minutes. This show featured the Phish debut of If You Need a Fool, as well as the debut of the new arrangement of Vultures. A portion of the intro to Antelope featured Fish on vacuum. Bathtub Gin from this gig was included as filler on Live Phish 17.
Lengthwise was played for the first time since October 20, 1994 (291 shows). Contact was performed “Mexican Love Style,” as Trey dedicated the song to a couple he met who had fallen in love.

Poor Heart featured several false endings, including a Free Bird-style ending. Makisupa included a long, atypical jam. Sea and Sand (first since NYE 1995, or 166 shows) was an appropriate choice, given the venue’s location near the beach. Sexual Healing made its Phish debut at this show with Fish reading the lyrics off the back of a show poster. As delay loops built to end Halley’s Comet, the band left the stage one by one. The soundcheck's jam contained several quotes of Venus (Shocking Blue). This show was released as part of the Ventura box set.
YEM contained Things That Make You Go Hmmm... teases from Mike.
Trey teased Makisupa Policeman in Ya Mar. Gumbo included a Manteca tease. This unfinished Weekapaug included syncopated jamming and a tease of the theme that signals the closing of the jam segment of Taste by Trey.
Stash included a Manteca tease and Reba did not have the whistling ending.
Some humor surrounded the Guyute ending; fans of stage banter will want to seek this segment out. Fish teased Peaches before Limb By Limb and Glide in Simple. This show was officially released as Live Phish 17.
Divided Sky and Mike’s Song were aborted due to sound problems. The first set then ended early so that the crew could fix the P.A.. More problems arose during Sparkle, which was subsequently aborted. Trey asked the crew to turn the monitors around so the band could play through them. While they worked, the band told jokes. Trey even asked Fish to tell the Prison Joke but the sound was fixed before it actually happened. The jam out of Halley’s included a First Tube tease. Weekapaug included On Broadway teases.
In the middle of Carini, Trey dedicated the song to Pete Carini and told a story about Carini trying to tackle somebody who ran up on stage during the previous show. Tweezer contained Things That Make You Go Hmmm... teases from Mike and a Wolfman's Brother tease from Trey. Hello My Baby was performed without amplification. Hood contained a Drowned tease from Trey and also was unfinished. Prior to the encore and before the final note of Chalk Dust, the crowd chanted "¡Olé Olé Olé!," leading to a tease by the band before leaving the stage.
Frankenstein was preceded by a Frankie Says tease by Fish. After the Frankenstein, Trey said the band had been waiting and waiting to play some Edgar Winter in Spain and that this was their chance, adding that they planned on playing a lot more Edgar Winter as the night went on. The band subsequently teased Edgar Winter's Free Ride. Sleeping Monkey included ¡Olé Olé Olé! chants from Trey and a stage appearance by “Betty” (whom Trey had apparently met in a bar the night before) from Chile. Sleeping Monkey was her favorite song, so Trey dedicated it to her and she danced while the band played. This three-show run in Barcelona was originally scheduled for Bikini Club in Barcelona, but was moved to Zeleste when ticket demand greatly exceeded supply for the original venue.
The Maze jam was halted while Trey humorously thanked the crowd. Golgi ended with Hip Hop Hooray quotes by Trey. The last line in Makisupa changed to "came to Vermont." Trey called Page "Petroff" before he took a piano solo. Trey let Fish take a drum solo, but told the crowd to whistle if he (Fish) went on too long.  Trey added that they had a "band rule" that they all begin whistling if Fish, who likes to ramble when he talks, ever talks for longer than two minutes. Fish took a boring "drum solo," which drew whistles from the crowd. Piper contained a Lady (Little River Band) tease from Page and Trey and Possum contained a Stash tease from Trey. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
Trey seemed to forget the lyrics to the last verse of Fee and improvised the story as he led the band back into the final chorus. Fee subsequently concluded with an extended jam segment.
This single-set performance was webcast live and was part of the annual Midtfyns Festival that also featured Sonic Machine, Psyched Up Janis, Angelique Kidjo, Hothouse Flowers, Poul Krebs & De Små Sensationer, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. YEM did not contain a vocal jam.
This show marked the debuts of Meat and Fikus. Fans of stage banter will want to hear this show, as Trey was in a particularly chatty mood.
Tweezer included a No Quarter tease from Trey and 2001 contained Long Train Runnin' teases.
This show marked the debuts of Roggae, The Moma Dance, Brian and Robert, and the "new" faster arrangement of Water in the Sky. Ghost included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Tube contained a Sand tease. The Moma Dance included the band teaching the audience the simplistic "dance" that accompanies the song.
This was the soundcheck for The Grey Hall shows and it is likely incomplete. Roggae may have been played several times and was jammed on.
Fish sat in on drums for a portion of the second set. The setlist for this show is unknown and recordings do not circulate.

SET 1: Love Makes You Lose Your Mind > Big Boat , Dark Water , Back Street Woman , Hard Love , Wild Side > Something is Forming , Boogie On Reggae Woman [1] > You’re the Only One [1], Jones [2] > Who Do You Love? [1] > Tangled Up in Blue [3]

ENCORE: One Way Out [3]

Mike sat in on an additional bass for “Boogie On Reggae Woman” through the end of the show. "Jones" featured a poetry reading by Frank Messina. Eamon Cronin provided additional vocals on “Tangled Up In Blue” and “One Way Out.”
This performance included costumed dancers, theatrics that included people being hoisted by cables, artists displaying various props (including Mike Gordon placing cactus props on stage), and innovative lighting that featured large fluorescent tubes. The second set was a looser jam session and included guest appearances from Dave Grippo on saxophones, James Harvey on trombone, Bobby Hackney on vocals, and Fish on drums. This show marked the debut of “First Tube,” “Sand,” “Mozambique,” and “Last Tube.” While not billed as a Trey Anastasio performance, with Russ and Tony it represents the public debut of the core TAB touring ensemble.  
This show included the debut of Shafty, which was then briefly teased by Mike and Trey in Possum. Disease, Maze, and Possum were unfinished. The funky jam in between Possum and Cavern featured some stage banter from Trey about the funk jams the band had been playing. Accordingly, Cavern was played in a slower, funkier manner than usual and included some of the older, alternate lyrics. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
2001 was unfinished. Brother included a brief Dave’s Energy Guide tease and was followed by a short instrumental reprise, which was announced as the “radio-friendly version.” Trey contrasted this with the normal version, which was deemed un-radio-friendly due to its length. Ghost, which Trey jokingly remarked was also not radio-friendly because it is long and slow, included a Can’t Turn You Loose tease. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
Weekapaug included a Crosseyed and Painless tease and a brief jam of the song that would eventually debut as Mozambique, as well as a tease of the theme from Brazil and a quick tease of Nellie Kane from Trey. A fan ran up on the stage during Loving Cup, prompting banter and subsequent singing of "Carini's gonna getcha" several times in the Antelope intro, as well as a Carini mention later in the song. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
This show marked the debut of Birds of a Feather and Frankie Says. After NICU, Trey commented on the brief “Island Tour,” remarking that the band was getting bored at home and wanted to play some shows. Stash was unfinished and contained Frankie Says quotes at its end. The final chord of Chalk Dust included a "Charge!" tease from Page. Fikus was teased by Fish before Wolfman's. Sneakin' Sally did not contain a vocal jam. Twist included Star Trek theme teases from Mike. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
Mike and Fish joined the Flecktones for their encore. Mike and Victor Wooten engaged in a bass duet. Fish also hammed it up on a percussion machine, and everyone else stopped to let him jam. No additional setlist details are known and recordings do not circulate.
This lineup of the Sneakers Jazz Band included James Harvey on trombone, Dave Grippo on alto sax, John Rivers on acoustic bass, Jeff Salisbury on drums, and Trey on guitar for whole show except the encores, when Paul Asbell played Trey’s guitar.
This show was a co-bill with The Hot Club of Cowtown.
