This was the final show before the band’s hiatus. Appropriately, given the pending extended break from touring, the pre-show music closed with The Rolling Stones’ The Last Time and the post-show music was The Beatles’ Let it Be. After the show, the crowd gave the crew a standing ovation as they packed the band’s gear, while the crew took pictures of the crowd. This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.
Glide was teased before the Carini opener and Jibboo was teased before Heavy Things. Disease was unfinished. The encore, which included the Phish debuts of El Paso and West L.A. Fadeaway, featured a Bob Weir guest appearance. Trey teased Chalk Dust after West. L.A. Fadeaway.
Chalk Dust included a Walk This Way tease. Sneakin' Sally did not contain a vocal jam. Character Zero ended with a slow jam where Trey quoted the lyrics to FEFY.
Reba did not have the whistling ending. Antelope included a reference to Bob Weaver instead of Marco Esquandolas.
Phish were the musical guests on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Trey introduced the band during Llama (including Fish as 'Bob Weaver') before encouraging the audience to clap along with him. He slapped himself on the forehead and encouraged fans to slap the foreheads of the person next to them, but few did. Piper was unfinished and morphed into the debut of Guy Forget, which contained a "will the good lord save or will I dance on grave" quote and a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Guy Forget had been previously performed in soundchecks. Piper and Camel Walk from this gig are included as filler on the Live in Vegas DVD.
Though the band came out in position for Walfredo, they were forced to pause due to technical difficulties. For the second show in a row, several breakouts dotted the setlist: Walfredo (first since February 22, 1997, or 248 shows), Esther (August 9, 1998, 146 shows), Forbin’s and Mockingbird (August 7, 1998, 148 shows), A Day in the Life (July 3, 1998, 170 shows), and Emotional Rescue (July 28, 1998, 155 shows). The Mockingbird narration referenced the band’s upcoming hiatus. I Didn’t Know included a reference to Kid Rock’s sidekick Joe C. Esther featured flubbed lyrics for the final verse, ending with Trey proclaiming: “She died. Dead.” As the band returned for the second set, the crowd serenaded Trey with Happy Birthday. Twist contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. Emotional Rescue included a bizarre synchronized duel on-stage between Trey and Mike. This show was webcast live and subsequently released in its entirety as the band’s first full concert DVD, Live in Vegas.
Wilson included a heavy metal jam, complete with Trey waving his guitar in the air. Kid Rock provided guest vocals from Walk This Way through the encore. Walk This Way and Rapper’s Delight (with funny stage antics from Fish, who danced on his knees like Kid’s sidekick Joe C.) were Phish debuts. You Shook Me (All Night Long) was played in its entirety by Phish for the first time, although it had been jammed on other occasions. Walk This Way was also teased during 2001. Spock’s Brain (first since June 24, 1995, or 391 shows), Dinner and a Movie (first since March 1, 1997, or 242 shows), and American Band (first since November 16, 1996, or 271 shows) returned after long absences. The Carini opener was preceded by a Wilson tease and saw Trey have several problems with his guitar. Meatstick featured Mike and Trey doing the Meatstick dance.
The My Friend ending did not contain the "Myfe" lyric.  Brother was played for the first time since July 28, 1998 (153 shows) after which Trey commented, “That song is all about the ending.”
Everybody’s Got Something To Hide was played for the first time since October 31, 1994 (434 shows). Disease was unfinished.
Cool it Down was played for the first time since October 31, 1998 (130 shows) and contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey.
Come on Baby Let's Go Downtown made its Phish debut at this show. Trey teased Super Bad in Moma Dance. Tweezer contained Sunshine of Your Love teases from Trey and featured an ending typical for older Tweezers with a die-down akin to the Picture of Nectar album version.
Meat was unfinished. Reba contained a Stash tease from Trey. Meatstick concluded with the band fading out and the audience finishing the song a cappella. Antelope subsequently included Meatstick teases.
It's Ice was unfinished and included a long, atypical jam.
Twist included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey.
Mike teased Sundown in Bathtub Gin.

The show opened with the Phish debut of Roadrunner, which ended with Trey mentioning that various people (including Paul's parents) were from Massachusetts. Brian and Robert included a woman on stage relaying the lyrics in sign language.
The My Friend ending did not contain the "Myfe" lyric. Tom Marshall spoke the lyrics to Antelope. Sand through Funky Bitch and Hood featured Michael Ray on trumpet. When he wasn’t playing, Ray was dancing around the stage and exhorting the appreciative crowd. During Hood, he sat and relaxed in front of the drum riser before pulling several people out of the crowd, who proceeded to sit around the stage and occasionally dance. Trey thanked them as “The Michael Ray Chorus.” Sand included a First Tube tease.
This show featured the Phish debuts of Mellow Mood and Windora Bug. Limb By Limb contained a Dave's Energy Guide tease from Trey. The jam out of the end of Gin featured Fish on vacuum and Trey on drums.
This was a taping for the television show Austin City Limits. Beauty of My Dreams was botched and restarted. Due to technical difficulties, First Tube was played a second time. After Piper, Trey responded to some fan requests and noted that the band saw Béla Fleck tape a performance for Austin City Limits in 1993. When the Circus Comes was dedicated to Los Lobos. The episode was first aired on October 14, 2000 to kick off the show’s 26th season. The broadcast included Beauty of My Dreams, My Soul, The Inlaw Josie Wales, Limb By Limb, When the Circus Comes, Back on the Train, Twist, Possum, Sleep, and First Tube.
Disease was unfinished. The jam out of Mango included a Have Mercy tease. The key phrase in Makisupa was “heady nuggets.”
After Sample, the show was stopped for 26 minutes due to a major thunderstorm.
My Friend was unfinished. Tube contained Super Bad teases from Trey. During Meatstick, Trey dedicated the song to the fans that didn’t get into the show. Curtain With was played for the first time since July 29, 1988 (1,177 shows).
In keeping with the theme of the second set, Hood included a Moby Dick tease. Trey introduced Fish as “Russell Crowe” during Terrapin. The Moby Dick inside of the HYHU jam featured Trey on drums and Fish on vacuum. The Chalk Dust Reprise was akin to the version last played on December 10, 1994 (391 shows), with the band singing the words “Chalk Dust Torture” over varied music. At the end of the encore, Trey joked that, if anyone missed anything, they should read the book or see the movie. Prior to this show, Moby Dick had not been played since November 29, 1997 (172 shows).
Trey teased San-Ho-Zay in Twist and Stash in Antelope.

Runaway Jim contained a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey and a Can't Turn You Loose tease from Page. Glide included an All Fall Down signal. Fluffhead contained a Frère Jacques tease from Trey. Antelope featured Tom Marshall on vocals.
Jibboo included additional lyrics that referenced Chris Kuroda and Brad Sands. Weekapaug was unfinished. Ghost contained a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey.
The ending of AC/DC Bag was unusual, as Trey repeated the closing guitar tweaks before breaking into the Tweezer riff. Sneakin' Sally did not contain a vocal jam. The key phrase in Makisupa was a play on the blues classic One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, with "Big Fat Doob" replacing "Beer." Cavern included Tweezer teases and a Moby Dick tease after Trey introduced Fish under that name. Halley’s included a tease of Things That Make You Go Hmmm... from Mike and Runaway Jim included Nellie Kane teases.
Birds contained a tease of A Love Supreme and was unfinished. Catapult was sung over an atypical jam that bridged Birds and Heavy Things. This gig featured an eventful Meatstick: Sofi Dillof made a guest appearance for the Meatstick dance. Several fans ran on stage and were chased off by Pete Carini and then by Bart Butler, both of whom Trey thanked. Trey improvised a verse noting: “There’s no song about Paul Languedoc, and there’s no song about Kuroda; there’s only one about Carini, and his lumpy head!” Trey then jokingly talked about the Meatstick Dance being a fad in Japan. The lyrics to Cities were altered to reference Tokyo, the Meatstick Dance, and sushi. Antelope included Meatstick teases in the intro. At the end of the second set, Trey thanked the crew (particularly Carini, for being a good sport). Trey mentioned how much of a “home show” it is for the band to play in Holmdel, and led one final Meatstick tease.
Gin contained a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. During a glowstick "war" in Hood, Trey caught a few glowsticks and threw them back into the crowd, eliciting a huge cheer from the crowd. Mike’s Song contained a mid-jam "break," another jam segment, and then another break that led into Albuquerque. If I Could was played for the first time since July 31, 1998 (123 shows).
Phish were the musical guests on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
Maze included Peter Gunn theme teases.
Tweezer included an I Know You Rider tease, a Silent in the Morning tease from Mike, and a Fire (The Ohio Players) tease from Trey. My Sweet One was botched, which led to band introductions from Trey and extended solos from Fish, Mike, and Page. Trey explained that My Sweet One and Dog Faced Boy were both written about the same person by Fish and that one was at the beginning of the relationship and the other at the end, finally asking the crowd "can you guess which?" Mike "bantered" a bit and showed off his fight bell. During the banter after My Sweet One, Page teased "Charge!" twice.
Disease was unfinished.

The audience sang along at one point and tried in vain to convince Phish to play the song in its entirety.
