Before "Goodbye Head" Trey noted that he had written this song with his elder daughter when she was nine years old, and that now she was going off to college. Trey dedicated "Water in the Sky" to a fan who had caused a minor disruption, as a bargain so that she would return to her seat. "Brian and Robert" was dedicated to Tom Marshall.

Other bands scheduled to perform were Ana Egge, Anne McCue, Mary Battiata & Little Pink, Eric Brace, Doughboys, and Derek Evry. The performance of Neil Young's "Long May You Run" closed the benefit and featured the other performers from the benefit.

This event was the "Celebration for a New Direction," a reception in honor of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who was sworn in as the first female Speaker of the House the previous day. "Iko Iko" featured Wyclef Jean on guitar and vocals. This setlist is unconfirmed as recordings of the performance do no circulate.

The first set Trey was solo acoustic and the second set was electric TAB. Trey dedicated Bathtub Gin to the author of its lyrics, Susannah Goodman. As with the night before, Trey played Name after a lengthy introduction of another song; this time, it was Mountains in the Mist. Trey talked about how on this solo tour there were three sets of “duologies,” or songs related to each other.

Suzy included a Tweezer Reprise tease and Possum included Kashmir and Jean Pierre teases. Peaches (first since June 23, 1989, or 558 shows) was likely played in memory of Frank Zappa, who passed away a few weeks before. Subsequently, SOAM included Peaches teases. Ya Mar included an Auld Lang Syne tease and Hood included a Simpsons signal. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. My Friend started out with Trey on acoustic guitar and did not contain the "Myfe" ending.

I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone, dedicated Llama to Chelsea Clinton and, with huge balloon and flowers in hand, dedicated Amazing Grace to his sister on her 30th birthday. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones. Reba included odd variations on the "Bag it/tag it" lyrics, an atypical jam, and a Simpsons signal. Tweezer contained Gumbo teases from Mike and Page. The intro to Big Ball Jam also contained a quick Gumbo tease from Mike. The vocal jam in YEM included a brief piece of the traditional Oh My Darling, Clementine.

Love You featured Fish on the Bag-Vac. Memories and Sweet Adeline were performed without microphones. Everything was the opening act.

Wilson, My Sweet One, and the YEM vocal jam contained Mrs. Pizza Shit references. YEM was preceded by introductions of lots of friends and family, and was halted and restarted by Trey so that he can confirm that Phish had indeed changed their name to “Mrs. Pizza Shit.” YEM contained a Brady Bunch theme tease from Mike. The subsequent vocal jam contained William Tell Overture quotes. At one point during the show, Trey even grabbed a slice of pizza from a passing waitress and used it to strum the guitar. Sanity was teased before and during Terrapin.

This show featured the Giant Country Horns from Suzy through Weekapaug, Cavern through Tweezer, and Dinner through Caravan. Gumbo also featured Fish on trombone and Horn introductions.

This show, performed on Fish’s birthday, had many classic moments, including Happy Birthday teases before Coil, during Bowie and Weekapaug, and before and after Love You. Bowie also contained Charlie Chan and Complete Stop signals. The Bowie intro also included a How High the Moon tease from Mike. The Whole Lotta Love jam segued out of the vacuum solo in Love You. Magilla contained a Flintstones theme tease from Trey. The Janglers were the opening act.

Don’t Get Me Wrong featured John Popper on harmonica. After Foam, Trey dedicated the song to Pat Metheny, who was apparently playing nearby. After the second HYHU, Fish teased the Oriental Riff on woodblock.

The Chase was played for the first time since October 26, 1989 (107 shows). The end of the first HYHU and Love You featured Fish on trombone. The opening act was The Aquarium Rescue Unit.

After YEM, Fish noted apologetically that they didn't have a chance to do a soundcheck, but once they got it together, "we promise to kill ya." During I Didn't Know, Trey introduced Fish as "Phil Collins." 'A' Train contained teases of the Flintstones theme, Sailor's Hornpipe, and the Brady Bunch theme. Trey introduced Tom Marshall before Lawn Boy, encouraging the audience to "think of him as the fifth member." Contact featured Fish crying in the background during the "I woke up one morning..." section. Exit Only was the opening act.
