In the tradition of some of Phish's previous crowd experiments in the early '90s, flyers explaining a new Secret Language prank were included in the Phishbills that were passed out to fans as they walked into the show. The prank, designed to confuse those who would later listen to the recording, consisted of an announcer introducing Phish (as Little Feat).

In Antelope, "Marco Esquandolas" was changed to "Mike-O Esquandolas," followed by a Mike solo. The end of Wilson contained a Dixie tease from Trey.

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.
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.
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.

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). This show marked the Phish debuts of Bobby Jean and Glory Days. Rock and Roll included a brief Rift tease. Limb By Limb contained a Dave’s Energy Guide tease.
After forgetting the lyrics to Fee, Trey remarked that “We knew this one backstage.” This show marked the debuts of Sugar Shack and Joy. Before the extended encore, Trey asked, “You guys in a rush to go anywhere?” He then talked about how much they had enjoyed the northeast run and that they wanted to play a few more songs before heading south (though he was careful to note that they love the south, too).
The Star Spangled Banner was performed from the pitcher’s mound. This show marked the debut of Ocelot and the Phish debuts of Light and Time Turns Elastic. Stash was preceded by Stash, It’s Ice and Take Me Out to the Ballgame teases. Trey also teased Take Me Out to the Ballgame after Stash and again during Limb By Limb. Tweezer contained a Theme From the Bottom jam. After Time Turns Elastic, Trey jokingly announced, “That’s our single.” The Ballad of Curtis Loew was performed for the first time since August 2, 1993 (625 shows).
Sanity (not played since November 27, 1998 or 188 shows) ended prematurely right after the “world explodes” line (additionally, one of the large, white balloons that was hung from the rafters popped, as if on cue, as Trey sang "world explodes"). Disease was also unfinished. This show marked the Phish debuts of Undermind and She Thinks I Still Care. Frankenstein featured Page on keytar. Before Contact, the band and audience sang Happy Birthday to Fish’s Dad, Leonard, and the end of Contact featured a Happy Birthday jam. During Tweezer Reprise, balloons were dropped into the crowd. The post-show music included "Sweet Virginia" from Exile on Main Street.
This was the second show of the Coventry festival and was the presumed “Final Show.” When Trey made his “break-up” announcement the preceding May, he indicated that Coventry would be the final Phish shows. In reality, this turned out to be the final public show for over four and a half years. This show was simulcast in movie theaters nationwide. Before Anything But Me, Trey announced that, for the first time in 21 years, he was nervous performing a Phish show. During Wolfman’s, Trey revealed that the Wolfman’s Brother is, in fact, Fish (as well as the fact that he handed the phone to his friend Liz Durfee). Also, during Wolfman’s, Trey and Mike invited their mothers onstage (and later John Paluska) to do the “sexy bump” dance. Disease was unfinished and featured Trey briefly playing his guitar with a glow stick. Both Page and Trey broke down during an especially emotional Velvet Sea. After a thoroughly botched Glide, all four band members offered words of thanks to the fans for their continued support and dedication and brief reflections on their twenty years together. Trey then stated that what they really needed to do was “blow off some fucking steam” before starting up Melt. There was an enormous glow stick war during Ghost featuring hundreds, if not thousands, of orange glow sticks. This version of Seven Below saw all of the band members sporadically shouting “Seven Below” throughout the jam. The Phish debut of Cool Jerk contained alternate lyrics honoring monitor mixer, Mark “Bruno” Bradley. The Dickie Scotland Song was spontaneously created and included lyrics in honor of production manager, Hadden Hipsley, and tour accountant, Richard Glasgow (a.k.a. Dickie Scotland). Before Wilson, Trey asked the crowd to sing to another of their friends “for the last time.” There was a fireworks display between the end of the third set and the encore. Before the encore, while explaining the origins of The Curtain, Trey jokingly announced that the entire Chicago Symphony and the Twyla Tharp Dance Troupe were going to perform Gamehendge. Trey explained that they chose The Curtain With as the last song to bring them full circle, because, not only was it one of the first Phish songs he wrote, but he wrote it in a cabin one town over from Coventry. Trey stopped and restarted the jam segment of the Curtain With, because they were in the wrong key or, as he explained, ”Since we are going to be bringing ourselves back in time, we may as well do it in the correct key.” There was no P.A. music after the Curtain With.
During Julius, Trey broke a string on stage for the first known time since November 29, 1996. This Father’s Day version of Bill Bailey – the first since July 3, 1999 (165 shows) – featured Page’s dad, Dr. Jack McConnell, on vocals and tap shoes. Waves contained Maze teases from Trey.
During an unannounced performance by Trey Anastasio’s ensemble, one by one all of the members of Phish joined in while one by one all of the members of Trey’s band sat out, leaving Phish to complete Sand and then perform Chalk Dust. For complete show details please visit the TAB entry for this date.
Frankie Says was unfinished and included an extended jam segment. Fish forgot the words to Love You and scatted one verse, then sang, in near-perfect time: “I can’t remember the words now / I can’t remember the words / And it really doesn’t matter ‘cause I can’t sing either / So who gives a fuck, it’s time for the vacuum cleaner.” During the closing HYHU, Fish introduced the band, and himself as “Henrietta.” Suzy included an extended jam segment after the first chorus. Trey seemed to end the song after the second chorus while the rest of the band continued to play. The jam after Suzy contained a Lizards tease from Trey.
This was the second show of the IT festival. Chalk Dust contained DEG teases from Mike. The ending of Chalk Dust was performed at near double-time. Trey omitted a verse in Wilson. Afterwards, he announced that it was the “shortest version ever” and dedicated it to Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro. Trey then humorously announced that the band would next play the “longest Bittersweet Motel” (traditionally one of the shortest songs in the Phish canon) while Page teased "Charge!" The crowd responded with a passionate “Fluffhead” chant, but Trey responded: “Mike says no” (prompting laughs from the other band members). Appropriately, Trey launched into Mike’s Song but Mike had the last laugh: during the Mike’s Song intro, Mike sang his “Hendge” lyric that had been omitted from Wilson. Weekapaug included a Seven Below tease. YEM contained the event-appropriate lyrical change “Boy, Man, God, IT,” a Frankenstein tease from Mike, and a vocal quote of Daniel Saw the Stone. The band vamped on the theme to Chariots of Fire (a Phish debut) while Trey introduced the top finishers in the Runaway Jim 5K race. During Antelope, Trey thanked the staff, road crew, caterers (“part of the reason we’re playing so well is because we have the best food this tour that we’ve ever had”), and fans. He concluded by encouraging everyone to drive safely and noted tongue-in-cheek that next year’s “IT 2” would have a traffic-free entrance. Antelope also included Under Pressure and It’s Ice teases.
Seven Below included a Mozambique tease. After Seven Below, Trey “welcomed” Mike back to the stage (followed by a “Charge!” tease, with Mike’s name inserted). Trey teased Simple in Prince Caspian.
Round Room included a Dixie tease. Mike played electric bagpipes on portions of Halley’s and Guyute. Seven Below included a Third Stone from the Sun tease and the Hood intro included a Seven Below tease.
This was a tech rehearsal for the summer tour. Video snippets of Scents and Subtle Sounds, I Am Hydrogen, and Sanity were posted on phish.com. This setlist is incomplete.
Phish played Golden Lady for the first time since October 20, 1994 (458 shows). Trey chided Fish at the start of the second set, claiming that he didn’t know how to play Disease. Trey teased DEG in Seven Below. The jam out of Piper included an In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida tease from Page and a Rift tease before moving briefly through the ending segment of Disease (in the key of Piper, no less) before segueing into Makisupa.
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.
Cool it Down was played for the first time since October 31, 1998 (130 shows) and contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey.
Mike teased Sundown in Bathtub Gin.
Maze included Peter Gunn theme teases.
Possum included Stash teases. A large rainbow formed over the theatre and cleared during the encore. The opening act was Big Frog.
After Velvet Sea, Page talked about how he had often visited Radio City as a kid. Trey then noted that he and Page had seen Stevie Wonder at this venue, and he discussed about how much the band appreciates the support of fans.
Chalk Dust concluded with Trey paying his respects to his recently deceased grandfather.
Twist emerged at this show with a slightly new arrangement. After Trey remarked of his affinity for this venue, Jennifer Dances made its debut.
YEM did not contain a vocal jam.
Mike teased the theme from The Brady Bunch during BBFCFM. The encore featured Sugar Blue on harmonica and Son Seals on guitar. Messin’ With the Kid was played for the first time since August 8, 1997 (142 shows), which was Sugar Blue’s previous time on stage with Phish.
Sweet Virginia made its Phish debut at this show. The last four songs of the first set featured Michael Ray on trumpet and Tim Green on saxophone. Call to the Post was teased before and during Birds.
Trey teased Long Tall Glasses in Stash.
This show was part of the Fuji Rock Festival and took place on the Field of Heaven stage. Moma contained brief Wilson teases and Tweezer included a Velvet Sea tease. The Wedge contained a Stash tease from Trey.
My Friend's ending did not contain the "Myfe" lyric. Whipping Post was played for the first time since August 10, 1996 (208 shows) and featured Trey on vocals for the first time since September 21, 1990 (846 shows). The Makisupa key words were "gooballs, brownies, stink, kind nugs... keef!" Happy Birthday was performed for the first time since September 30, 1991 (715 shows) and was first played by Trey instrumentally over Makisupa before he announced Chris Kuroda's birthday and asked the crowd to join in as he sang the song "rasta style" (with a "We're gonna get you so wasted tonight after the show" lyric). Mike subsequently took a bass solo and Fish sung a verse solo in a mock Jamaican accent (with a "You roll up a big spliff and you don't pass it to no one!" lyric). Chris took a silent light board solo (see also April 18, 1990) at Trey's request before Makisupa resumed. The second set featured multiple teases and jams, including the unfinished Birds (My Left Toe tease), Antelope (Stash tease), Suzy (I Wish teases and a syncopated jam based around Page) and YEM (Boogie On Reggae Woman jam). In Purple Rain, played for the first time since August 6, 1996 (209 shows), Fish forgot the words and subsequently thanked the crowd for supporting his vacuum cleaner habit.
This was the second show of the Camp Oswego festival. Back on the Train through Beauty of My Dreams featured a guest appearance by the Del McCoury Band, who had played on the venue’s side stage. During I’m Blue I’m Lonesome, Del McCoury broke a string, and a bluegrass breakdown ensued while the string was changed. Runaway Jim contained Super Bad teases from Trey. During Meatstick, the crowd tried to break the world record for most people dancing at one time. Trey explained the record that the band was trying to break while Sofi Dillof danced on stage and the Guinness staff videotaped the crowd. Part of the Piper intro was used on the studio Piper released on Farmhouse. Some musical chaos ensued between Catapult and Icculus (first since October 31, 1995, or 262 shows), where Trey rambled about the negative aspects of television and the positive aspects of books and Mike teased Meatstick. The ensuing Smoke on the Water Jam included Cat Scratch Fever teases. Subsequently, Icculus was followed by more narration and a tease of Miss You. The show closed with fireworks during Hood.
Fish, introduced as “Flagina Fishman,” took a vacuum solo during I Didn’t Know wearing only stars and stripes boxers. This show featured the debut of What’s the Use?. Trey teased Pictures of Matchstick Men in Wilson. After Carini, the band reprised the chorus of Meatstick while part of the crew and a few fans did the Meatstick Dance. The band performed the second encore in stars and stripes outfits. The show was followed by a fireworks display.
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.
