This show marked the debut of “Travelling Song.” “Drifting” was preceded by the horn introduction to “Discern.” “Curlew’s Call” and “When” from this gig are included on Trey’s live CD, Plasma.

The YEM vocal jam segued into an a cappella Tweezer Reprise. Tweezer Reprise was subsequently played in its normal manner to close out the show.

The first set was Trey solo acoustic and the second set was electric TAB. Alluding to the raunchy nature of a general admission show, after Wolfman’s Brother Trey launched into a chorus of Feel Like Makin’ Love (a TAB debut). Regarding the Trey/Tom song Name, Trey noted that it was the partner song to Feel Like Makin’ Love and was written about a typical “last call” at a bar. Trey performed Billy Breathes on piano. Kissed By Mist was dedicated to Julia Butterfly Hill. Tony introduced Tops Off as a blues standard, but admitted that no one knows what the song is really about. Tony also introduced the band at the end of the encore and thanked the crew while indirectly referencing the Chris Kuroda fan club, "CK5."

My Friend did not contain the "Myfe" ending. Prince Caspian was preceded by Trey discussing how Portland was supposed to be Elvis’s last show so this song was for his kid, the prince. Reba did not have the whistling ending. The Dog Logs were part of Trey’s announced “Dog Log” album and were preceded by Trey coaching the audience’s reaction. Dog Log had not been played since August 2, 1993 (218 shows). Tube was played as a thank-you for helping out with the “album.” Funky Bitch and WMGGW featured Warren Haynes on guitar.

This show was part of the H.O.R.D.E. tour that also featured Aquarium Rescue Unit, Blues Traveler, The Spin Doctors and Widespread Panic. Glide was preceded by an All Things Reconsidered tease and a Simpsons signal. The intro to Bowie included an All Fall Down signal.

After Divided Sky, Trey spoke about how “exceptional” the room was, and how “inspiring” it was to play in.  He explained that the band had engaged in “philosophical discussions” about standing versus sitting at shows.  He said that some people may prefer to sit rather than stand and dance, and that the band hoped that everyone would be considerate of each other. (He also noted that he prefers to dance while listening to live music, while Page prefers to sit.) Trey added that he did not want anyone to feel uncomfortable about dancing in the aisles. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones.

The beginning of Hydrogen included the lyrics "I walk awakening on the misty fields of forever." There are no recordings of this show in circulation.
