History

Phish capped a decent show with a strange encore when they preceded “Tweezer Reprise” with this staple from The Police. The verse lyrics (including “Welcome to this one man show / Just take a seat, they’re always free”) didn’t fit, though perhaps the chorus matched the mood of music men on the road and halfway through a four-week tour, their second as an all-married band.

For no known reason, the song was originally listed in setlists for 2/20/97 but was not played that night. In early November 1998, there was a thread on rec.music.phish telling people to correct their setlists, just a few days before the song was played live for the first time!
