AC/DC Bag and Ghost contained Auld Lang Syne teases. Swept Away and Steep were played for the first time since July 1, 2000 (145 shows). Demand was played for the first time since November 14, 1996 (392 shows). NO2 was played for the first time since July 13, 1999 (219 shows). Prior to the third set, a pedestal stating 2010 was placed on the front of the stage and a covered structure was placed behind Fish's drumset. During DWD, as the clock turned midnight, hundreds of balloons were released upon the crowd, fireworks went off on each side of the stage, and a disco ball was lowered onto the pedestal. After DWD, Trey opened the ball and Fish climbed inside. Trey and Mike, with some help from stagehands, proceeded to put the ball in a giant cannon aimed towards a giant net hanging from the rafters with an illuminated “X” on it. Page hit the trigger and purportedly "blasted" the ball through, not only the net, but also the roof of the arena. A searchlight appeared to come through the roof and was accompanied by helicopter sounds. With Fish apparently shot out of the venue, Trey asked if anybody knew how to play the drums and ended up finding Sarah, a girl from Pittsburgh. Trey asked how long she had played the drums and what her favorite song was and she responded with six months and Fluffhead respectively. Sarah was surreptitiously replaced by Fish, now wearing a dress identical to Sarah's and a black wig, who played the entire third set and encore, but Sarah came out at the end of the third set and bowed with the band instead of him. Blue Moon was a Phish debut and was performed as an instrumental while Trey thanked the entire crew. After the show, the disco ball was revealed to have "crashed" into a white car that had been parked in front of the American Airlines Arena with a sign on the windshield stating "This car was driven down from Vermont" and "fueled by maple syrup."  After being “struck” by the “human cannonball,” the car was emitting smoke and leaking maple syrup and the entire area was cordoned off with police tape. 
Dixie Cannonball and Gone were Phish debuts. During Love You, Fish mentioned Trey's announcement on December 28, 2009 that it was Fish's last vacuum solo "of the aughts," so he announced that he needed "someone dressed like me" to do it, brought audience member Rich onstage to do the solo, then gave him the vacuum. Antelope included numerous Boogie On teases, the Marco Esquandolas lyric had "Marco" replaced with "Rich, let's hear it for him," and subsequent lyrics were changed to "Been you to have any Electrolux?" Frankenstein featured Page on keytar. Corinna was played for the first time since February 24, 2003 (100 shows) and Tela was played for the first time since November 24, 1998 (236 shows). This gig featured ten songs not previously performed in 2009 inclusive of two debuts.
Reba did not have the whistling ending. Tweezer contained a brief Dave's Energy Guide tease from Page.
My Soul was played for the first time since October 7, 2000 (110 shows). During I Didn't Know, Trey announced that this would be the final vacuum solo of the decade. Makisupa's key words were "Woke up this morning, did just what I like, spent a whole two minutes listening to nobody but Mike." Mike took a subsequent bass solo during which the band (and shortly thereafter the crowd) chanted "Mike." Makisupa's lyrics were later changed to reference Mike's house. The band then started to repeat "Mike's house."
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.
Reba did not have the whistling ending and Scents did not have the intro.
Disease was unfinished.
Peaches was played for the first time since September 24, 1999 (186 shows). The lyrics to Antelope were changed to "Been you to have any Mike, man?".
Nellie Kane was played for the first time since July 1, 2000 (137 shows). Before Meat, Trey announced (in a reference to Meat's lyrics) that Mike had changed his name and is now "The Artist Formerly Known as Cactus" and "The Artist Presently Known as Prince."  Subsequently, during Meat, Trey introduced Mike as "Prince" and Fish as "Prince's alter ego on the drums, 'Princess.'" Free Bird was played for the first time since June 22, 2000 (144 shows) and was performed a cappella for the first time since December 29, 1998 (223 shows).
This show featured the first Uncle Pen since July 11, 2000 (129 shows). Ghost contained a tease of Seven Below.
This show marked the Phish debut of Golden Age (TV on the Radio) and the debut of Tomorrow's Song. During Page's solo in Coil, the rest of the band left the stage.  Upon returning, Trey said that they had left for the encore and asked Page where he had been, leading into I Been Around. The Fire encore continued the tradition of Phish playing a Hendrix cover on the guitarist's birthday (11/27/92 and 11/27/96 being the other occasions).
Kill Devil Falls contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. During Wilson, Trey implored Mike to take a "heavy metal bass solo" (and Mike complied). The lyrics to Antelope were changed to "Been you to have any Mike, man?" followed by another bass solo from Mike.
Cities was played in response to a fan with a sign requesting the song and featured alternative lyrics referencing Thanksgiving. Reba did not have the whistling ending. Disease was unfinished. Much of Weekapaug was played at a significantly slower pace than normal. Prior to ADITL, Fish teased the Weekapaug drumbeat.
BBFCFM included several references to Syracuse native Jon Fishman (including shout-outs to his alma mater, his father and his father's dental patients).
Albuquerque was played for the first time since September 14, 2000 (115 shows).
Disease was unfinished.
Mike sat in on bass in place of Ryan Stasik for a 16-minute version of "In the Kitchen."
This show was part of the three-show Festival 8. The first set, which started at noon, was billed as Phish's "first full-length acoustic set" (complete with complimentary coffee and Festival 8 themed donuts). The first set featured Trey and Mike on acoustics, Page solely on piano, and a unique stage setup that had Fish stage right with Page on the far left. Before Brian and Robert, Trey encouraged the crowd to sit down due to the "mellow" nature of the set; he added that they had never before played to a crowd that was sitting. Whether the crowd should stand up or sit down became a running joke throughout the set, until Trey confessed during Wilson that he only asked the crowd to sit down at the request of the crew and, in fact, he hates telling people what to do (and also hates sitting down). This show marked the Phish debuts of Invisible and Sleep Again. Fish performed a whistle solo on My Sweet One. The band briefly left the stage after McGrupp, returning to encore with Driver, Talk, and Secret Smile. The second and third sets were played later that evening. Reba lacked the whistling ending. Trey took a moment before Tweeprise to thank those who helped put on the festival.
This show was part of the three-show Festival 8. Playbills were distributed on-site (beginning at 12:30 p.m., 8 hours in advance) confirming that the second set (the band's "musical costume") would be the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St. After Divided Sky, Trey acknowledged the beauty of the venue and announced that Page would now play a love song to the lawn since it was the first time they had played on grass in a long time. Antelope's lyrics were changed to  "Been you to have any Coil, man?" (The Coil was an art installation on the venue grounds.) Set 2 began with a video highlighting selections of the 99 classic albums displayed and then systematically eliminated on the phish.com web site leading up to the festival. Selections in the montage included snippets from Michael Jackson's Thriller, T.Rex's Electric Warrior, Metallica's Master of Puppets, Miles Davis's A Tribute to Jack Johnson, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and The Doors (self titled), among others. All of the Exile on Main St songs were Phish debuts, except for Loving Cup and Sweet Virginia. All songs in the second set except for Casino Boogie, Torn and Frayed, and I Just Want To See His Face featured Dave Guy on trumpet, David Smith on trombone, and Tony Jarvis on saxophone. Tumbling Dice, Sweet Virginia, and Loving Cup through Soul Survivor also featured Sharon Jones and Saundra Williams on backup vocals. Trey introduced the horn section after Tumbling Dice and again after the completion of the costume, before saying "We are the Rolling Stones. See you later." Suzy Greenberg was played with Jones, Williams, and the horns. This show featured the first Sweet Virginia since September 26, 1999 (173 shows).
This show was part of the three-show Festival 8. Stash contained an L.A. Woman tease. During I Didn't Know, Trey announced that Henrietta would, for the first time in human history, suck and blow at the same time, in the shape of a figure 8. Disease was unfinished. During Bowie, Trey said, "I'm gonna give you a little hint about the Halloween album now."

There were two soundchecks for Festival 8: an acoustic afternoon session, followed several hours later by a separate electric soundcheck that evening. The electric soundcheck was broadcast on Phish's on-site festival radio, JACK-FM 95.9 "The Bunny" as well as Sirus/XM Radio. The acoustic soundcheck was not broadcast and the song order may be incorrect. The short Devil With a Blue Dress On Jam included the chorus and part of a verse sung by Trey, as well as a Good Golly Miss Molly quote. The Starship Trooper Jam consisted of part of the Würm segment of the song. Before Liquid Time, Trey quoted Fuck Your Face and briefly teased Kids (MGMT); the jam out of Liquid Time dissolved into a vocal jam featuring the band members snoring and featured a Lengthwise quote from Trey. 
"Sugar Shack" featured Page on keys. "Happy Birthday" was sung to crew member Rachel Bischoff.
Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey opened. "Only a Dream" was unfinished to end the first set and then resumed at the beginning of the second set.

The Harpua narration centered on a depressed Jimmy calling on his Spirit Guide who happened to be a “funny little man wearing a dress” who spoke truth through song (in this case, I Kissed a Girl). This show featured the Phish debut of I Kissed a Girl (described by Trey as “so wrong on so many levels”).  After Harpua, Trey remarked to Fish that he was waiting for the day when Fish went to see Katy Perry and she performed a Phish song, prompting Fish to declare, “I don’t apologize to Katy Perry for that. I only apologize to [the audience].” Prior to the encore, Trey stated that it was hard to play the last show of the tour because they felt like they could just keep going.  Before starting the debut performance of I Been Around, Trey explained that they were playing it because he realized that it was the one song off of the upcoming album (Joy) that they hadn’t played live.
Before Ha Ha Ha, Trey chided Fish saying, “You should know this song, Fish, because you wrote this song.” After Ha Ha Ha, Trey said that he loved that song so much, that the time had come for the debut of Party Time, another Fish original that he loves even more. Before Tube, Trey said that he couldn’t hear what song a group of fans were shouting for, saying that it sounded like “Snoop.”  Trey then joked, “You said ‘Snoop’? He’s right back here, Snoop Dogg, everyone!” Finally, he started Tube, saying that he thought that was the song they were requesting. After Alaska, Trey offered some kind words for his guitar tech, Brian Brown, adding, “No Brian, no guitar.”
This show featured the first versions of Forbin’s and Mockingbird since September 30, 2000 (96 shows), which were performed without narration. During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish as “Recent Julliard Master’s Vacuum Program graduate, the one and only, Jon Moses Quagmire DeWitt Hampton.” DWD contained a Reba jam and was unfinished. Piper included a Spill the Wine tease from Page. This show featured the first Psycho Killer since December 7, 1997 (282 shows). Psycho Killer was unfinished and disintegrated into a self-described, electronic “Pong” jam. During the post-Psycho Killer “Pong” jam, Trey initiated a dance contest saying that whoever could best dance to that music would “win something.”  After Catapult (while continuing the “Pong” jam), Trey asked, “Does everybody else love this song as much as I do?” and said that he was “waiting for the day when they play stuff like this on the radio.”  Icculus was last performed on July 18, 1999 (193 shows). The Icculus narration centered on the fact that “you crazy kids” just don’t read anymore.  The “Pong” jam reappeared during the YEM jam. The soundcheck included a jam with lyrics that were made up on the fly with Trey on bass (so that Mike could check on bass sounds from the audience) and Fish on drums. Trey briefly quoted Spill the Wine and The Pendulum during the soundcheck jam.
After Gin, Trey wished Happy Birthday to an audience member holding a sign for The Sloth, saying they would get to it eventually (they played it two nights later). Trey then wished his wife, Sue, a happy fifteenth wedding anniversary. Trey also said some words in remembrance of Les Paul, who passed away earlier that day. Trey said that Les was a hero to all of the band members for, among other reasons, continuing playing music into his nineties and that hopefully they would be playing into their nineties too. Finally, Trey dedicated the ensuing version of How High the Moon (last played on March 8, 1993 (710 shows)), to the memory of Les.  Trey changed the lyrics of Antelope to “Been you to have any splash cymbal solo, man?”, after which Fish took a splash cymbal solo.
This show featured the first Paul and Silas since November 29, 1998 (209 shows).  Trey explained that Paul and Silas was “sort of a request” for a fan he met the night before.  This show marked the debut of Windy City, which Trey indicated the band had been waiting to debut in Chicago.
This show marked the Phish debut of Middle of the Road. Page teased The Birdwatcher in Ya Mar. Prior to Mike’s solo in the intro of Antelope, Trey whispered, “Cactus, Cactus, Cactus gonna play it for you, Cactus.” The keyword for Makisupa was “did like Bobby Brown. I ate my breakfast and I laid back down.” Trey and Mike switched instruments during Makisupa. Trey teased Hedwig’s Theme during YEM. BDTNL was unfinished.  Fish teased Llama several times at the end of Piper. During the soundcheck, Trey played an extended tease of the intro to Fly Famous Mockingbird.

Reba did not have the whistling ending. Boogie On featured a Twist-esque jam and contained an Oye Come Va tease from Page. Both Trey and Page teased AC/DC Bag during YEM. Undermind through Zero featured Bill Kreutzmann on drums.  Before the encore, Trey explained that Bittersweet Motel was being played at the request of his daughter, Bella.  After Bittersweet Motel, Fish remarked that he felt lonely again and needed the second drummer back.
Throughout the first set the band was using charades to communicate what song was coming next, prompting Trey to remark after Jibboo, “We do everything by hand signals now. There’s no more talking.”  After PYITE, Trey again referenced the hand signals, joking “That could be one of two songs, so we’ll see if he starts the right one.” During Antelope, Trey changed the lyrics to “Been you to have any slush?”  Disease contained an L.A. Woman tease from Trey, who also briefly teased Taste just before beginning Free, and was unfinished. Esther was played for the first time since September 30, 2000 (89 shows).

This marked Phish’s first show at Red Rocks since August 7, 1996 (388 shows).

Weekapaug contained a Celebration (Kool & the Gang) tease from Mike. Ghost contained a Praise You jam and a Windy City tease. Trey teased Piper before starting Limb By Limb.
During Brother, each of the band members’ children jumped into a bathtub placed at the side of the stage. Afterwards, Trey introduced them and wished everyone a happy Fathers’ Day.

Crosseyed and Painless included a brief, subtle tease from Page of the Grateful Dead’s Let It Grow. Trey teased Taste near the end of Disease, which was unfinished. Piper contained a brief Can’t You Hear Me Knocking tease. Frankenstein featured Page on the keytar and Trey on a five-neck guitar.

Split Open and Melt included a Can’t You Hear Me Knocking tease. Before the debut of The Connection, Mike introduced Trey as “Sweetie Pie” and Trey responded by blowing a kiss to Mike. There were severe thunderstorms during setbreak and, as a result, Page made an announcement that they were going to take a longer than usual break and that everyone on the lawn should return to their cars until the second set, which would not start until 11:00.
This show featured the first Walk Away since October 5, 2000 (80 shows). Disease was unfinished. After Grind, Trey remarked that Page blew the wrong note on the pitch pipe and had them all singing in the wrong key. They decided to perform another a cappella song and Trey joked that if they couldn’t get it right, Fish would sing Bike. Sure enough, Hello My Baby was no better and was aborted. However, true to his word, Trey announced that Fish will now sing Bike. For his part, Fish took the opportunity to welcome everyone to “the trainwreck portion of the show.” Bike was played for the first time since September 12, 2000 (95 shows).
Reba did not have the whistling ending. Trey and Fish teased Seven Below before Halley’s Comet.
This show, performed on the What Stage, closed out the 2009 Bonnaroo Festival. Before Mustang Sally, Trey remarked that he had seen a show at Jadwin Gym at Princeton University when was 12 (apparently referring to a 11/1/78 performance by Bruce Springsteen at this 3,000 seat venue, though Trey would have been 14 at the time), and added that Phish would now have an opportunity to play with one of his heroes, Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen joined in on guitar and vocals for Mustang Sally, Bobby Jean and Glory Days. Mustang Sally was played for the first time since August 5, 1988 (1,273 shows).

After forgetting the lyrics to Fee, Trey remarked that “We knew this one backstage.” This show marked the debuts of Sugar Shack and Joy.

Let Me Lie made its Phish debut at this show. The first post-break-up Makisupa Policeman notably did not contain a “keyword.”
