This show contained the debut of Summer of '89. Possum contained a Streets of Cairo tease by Trey and Reba did not have the whistling ending. Sleeping Monkey was played for a fan who was holding up a sign for the song during the previous show. Trey later said "if the guy with the sign isn't here, everybody sing so he can hear it on the tape," leading to the crowd to sing part of the song. Trey said they were playing the second Tweezer Reprise because they didn't play one at Hershey Park.

After Possum, Trey congratulated the hometown Chicago Blackhawks' victory over his beloved Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup Finals that ended two days before this show. Reba was performed without the whistling ending. Limb By Limb included an ending vocal jam. Trey teased San-Ho-Zay in Ghost. Antelope contained a Dave's Energy Guide tease by Trey in the intro section. Antelope subsequently contained a Fish drum solo. "Jon Fishman" was substituted for "Marco Esquandolas" and Antelope's lyrics were further changed with "Been you to have any stick." This show featured the Phish debut of Show of Life.

This show marked the Phish debut of Golden Age (TV on the Radio) and the debut of Tomorrow's Song. During Page's solo in Coil, the rest of the band left the stage.  Upon returning, Trey said that they had left for the encore and asked Page where he had been, leading into I Been Around. The Fire encore continued the tradition of Phish playing a Hendrix cover on the guitarist's birthday (11/27/92 and 11/27/96 being the other occasions).

This show was part of the three-show Festival 8. Stash contained an L.A. Woman tease. During I Didn't Know, Trey announced that Henrietta would, for the first time in human history, suck and blow at the same time, in the shape of a figure 8. Disease was unfinished. During Bowie, Trey said, "I'm gonna give you a little hint about the Halloween album now."

This show featured the first versions of Forbin’s and Mockingbird since September 30, 2000 (96 shows), which were performed without narration. During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish as “Recent Julliard Master’s Vacuum Program graduate, the one and only, Jon Moses Quagmire DeWitt Hampton.” DWD contained a Reba jam and was unfinished. Piper included a Spill the Wine tease from Page. This show featured the first Psycho Killer since December 7, 1997 (282 shows). Psycho Killer was unfinished and disintegrated into a self-described, electronic “Pong” jam. During the post-Psycho Killer “Pong” jam, Trey initiated a dance contest saying that whoever could best dance to that music would “win something.”  After Catapult (while continuing the “Pong” jam), Trey asked, “Does everybody else love this song as much as I do?” and said that he was “waiting for the day when they play stuff like this on the radio.”  Icculus was last performed on July 18, 1999 (193 shows). The Icculus narration centered on the fact that “you crazy kids” just don’t read anymore.  The “Pong” jam reappeared during the YEM jam. The soundcheck included a jam with lyrics that were made up on the fly with Trey on bass (so that Mike could check on bass sounds from the audience) and Fish on drums. Trey briefly quoted Spill the Wine and The Pendulum during the soundcheck jam.

Fluffhead was unfinished and contained a Dave’s Energy Guide tease.  Suzy contained Drowned, Crosseyed and Painless and AC/DC Bag teases.  The Seven Bar Blues Jam from the soundcheck featured Trey on bass and Mike on guitar.

After Limb By Limb, Trey introduced Fish as “Johnny B. Fishman” and quoted Johnny B. Goode, with Page also teasing "Charge!" before the quote. Split Open and Melt included a Can’t You Hear Me Knocking tease. Before the debut of The Connection, Mike introduced Trey as “Sweetie Pie” and Trey responded by blowing a kiss to Mike. There were severe thunderstorms during setbreak and, as a result, Page made an announcement that they were going to take a longer than usual break and that everyone on the lawn should return to their cars until the second set, which would not start until 11:00.

This show marked Phish’s first appearance at Bonnaroo. This “late-night set” on the What Stage began at approximately 11:00 p.m. Highway to Hell was played for the first time since February 26, 1997 (325 shows). YEM contained a brief Salt Peanuts (aka Basie Boogie) tease from Page.

During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish as “Little Junior Moses Brown Heaps DeWitt” and commented that he was going to “suck all of the moisture out of the air.” During Ya Mar, Page teased It’s Raining, It’s Pouring. Trey teased Flat Fee prior to Disease, which was unfinished. Twist featured an Oye Como Va jam. This show marked the debut of Twenty Years Later.

Phish’s first public performance since Coventry on August 15, 2004 started with Fluffhead, a song not played since prior to the first hiatus on September 29, 2000 (70 shows). Also of note, several large, white balloons were hung in a circle around the coliseum, lit up by an additional central lighting rig; the balloons (save for a few casualties) would remain for the entire run. Trey introduced Fish as “Dad” during I Didn’t Know. Train Song was not played since May 23, 2000  (111 shows) and Grind was not played since December 30, 1998 (181 shows). During Bouncing, some of the balloons were dripped into the crowd. This show featured the Phish debut of Backwards Down the Number Line. YEM featured a false start possibly as a nod to the January 3, 2003 restarted version.

This was the soundcheck for the Coventry festival and was broadcast on “The Bunny”, the official festival radio station. The second Jam featured Danny Clinch on harmonica.

Page signed an autograph while out on the front of the stage during Lawn Boy. Weekapaug included a Seven Below tease. The portion of YEM following 2001 contained only the vocal jam.

Scents and Subtle Sounds was teased prior to AC/DC Bag. This show contained the Phish debuts of 99 Problems and Big Pimpin’, both of which featured guest performances by Jay-Z and Cyro Baptista. After 99 Problems, Jay-Z remarked, presumably referring to the Phish scene, that “You all been hiding this from me.”  Jay-Z then said that the members of Phish told him that if the fans made enough noise that he could play one more song, which they naturally did, hence Big Pimpin’. Prior to Hood, Trey jokingly announced an Eric Clapton guest appearance. Mike teased Entrance of the Gladiators before Hood, which was unfinished.

Fenton Williams sat in for Chris Kuroda on lights. Rock and Roll included Low Rider teases. Camel Walk contained Wilson and Theme from Barney Miller teases. Little Drummer Boy appeared for the first time since December 2, 1999 (114 shows). Love You had Fish “playing” his new sonic dress, a garment woven from cassette tape that produced noise when touched with special gloves akin to tape heads.

Disease was unfinished. This show included the debut of Crowd Control. Trey introduced Mike to sing “his song.” Crimes of the Mind (first since July 10, 1994, or 504 shows) featured the Dude of Life on vocals. During the song, the Dude congratulated Phish on their 20 years together, and wished them success for 20 more.

SET 1: Jam -> Skin It Back, Jam


This Friday night soundcheck for the IT festival was simulcast via “The Bunny,” the official festival radio station.

Kung (first since September 29, 1999, or 106 shows) was sung over the jam connecting Drowned and Twist. Fish quoted Manteca in Hood. Bowie included a full-band Tweezer tease.


Trey announced “Dan” as the winner of the contest from the night before, as Dan was the first to call Mike’s hotline to name Dust in the Wind as the song that was teased. Trey announced the prize was a private vacuum solo from Fish to Dan. As homage to the movie Old School (which also featured Dust in the Wind), Trey encouraged the crowd to “earmuff” it while Dan received his prize. To bring the rest of the crowd in on the joke, Phish subsequently debuted an abbreviated version of Dust in the Wind. The song began as a solo vacuum piece but Trey jumped in on vocals to assist the struggling Fish. Trey teased Come On (Part One) before DWD. DWD contained San-Ho-Zay and Psycho Killer teases and was unfinished. Catapult was sung over the jam that emerged from DWD. Charcter Zero also contained a San-Ho-Zay tease.

Phish broke out two long-shelved tunes: the first Destiny Unbound since November 15, 1991 (796 shows) and the first Soul Shakedown Party since February 20, 1997 (270 shows). Trey teased Mr. Completely in Bathtub Gin. Back on the Train and Tweezer contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. Tweezer also included a Cars Trucks Buses tease from Page and a Do You Feel Like We Do tease. Trey teased The Horse prior to Round Room. This show was officially released on CD as Live Phish 02.28.03.


Lifeboy was played for the first time since November 25, 1998 (133 shows). During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish as “Henrietta, the world’s finest vacuum player.” I Didn't Know also included some dancing antics from Trey, Page, and Mike while Fish took his vacuum solo. 2001 included teases of Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, Simple Gifts, and Stash from Trey.

The Cover of 'Rolling Stone' made its Phish debut at this show, presumably as a nod to their actual appearance on the cover of the March 6, 2003 issue of that very magazine. Gin included Entrance of the Gladiators, Woman from Tokyo, and San-Ho-Zay teases. Trey also teased San-Ho-Zay in Walls of the Cave. Limb By Limb contained a Gotta Jibboo tease. A fan jumped on-stage and grabbed Trey’s microphone during AC/DC Bag before being dragged off-stage.

Phish introduced two more concert debuts: Pebbles and Marbles and All of These Dreams. Trey restarted YEM after a sloppy attempt at the composed beginning section. Trey teased San-Ho-Zay in YEM. One portion of the YEM vocal jam was based on the name “George Takei” (the actor who played Mr. Sulu on Star Trek) and another was based on the melody to Tweezer Reprise. Lyrics in Makisupa referenced “fatty,” “Waffle House,” and “Hooters.” The end of Possum included bizarre on-stage antics with Page playing Trey’s guitar from his seat, Trey playing Mike’s bass, and Mike using the “B” and “Ah” cymbals normally reserved for Cracklin’ Rosie. This improvisational Contact continued the joke of mock introductions, as Trey introduced “Al Gore.”

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.

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.

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.

Soundcheck: Guy Forget -> Mirror in the Bathroom, Dog Log

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.

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... and Le Freak teases from Mike and Runaway Jim included Nellie Kane teases.

Soundcheck: “Zepp Osaka” Jam, Jam, Jam, Twist Jam, “I Can’t Wait to Go Back Home” Jam, Another One Bites the Dust Jam

ENCORE: Bouncing Around the Room > Harry Hood


Reba was preceded by a brief Bowie tease.

The Moma Dance included Funky Bitch teases and Tweezer included Funk #49 teases. This was the first ever Meatstick to feature Japanese lyrics and Trey flubbed the words while attempting to sing them. Bouncing included a brief outro solo from Trey, which replaced the usual closing guitar lick. This show was re-broadcast on Japanese television.

This set was broadcast on the Mark and Brian radio program. Funky Bitch and My Soul were performed as a warm-up before the show went on the air, although the crowd was already in the bar. Jibboo through Heavy Things were aired live on the show (except for Magilla, which was played during a commercial break). Magilla was played for the first time since August 1, 1998 (107 shows). The band briefly jammed on the Jeopardy! theme (with the crowd providing some vocals) during a radio break, although this is not included on any circulating recordings. Bug included a brief DEG tease. There was a humorous question and answer session between the band and audience during one of the commercial breaks. Studio versions of Birds, Bouncing, and Heavy Things were used as intros and outros for the commercials.

This performance, taped after the Mark and Brian program, aired on KACD (103.1) in Los Angeles. There were around twenty fans present for the taping.

This was the second show of the Big Cypress festival. Fish was introduced as 'Soda Jerk' during I Didn’t Know. Split Open and Melt and Disease were unfinished. Melt contained A Love Supreme teases. After the ensuing Catapult, Trey remarked: “Only at the largest concert in the world could we get away with playing a song like that.” After Midnight made its Phish debut. The late set, also known as “The Show,” began at around 11:35. “Father Time” was on stage, pedaling on an exercise bike that powered a large clock. The sounds of the clock’s gears could be heard through the sound system. About ten minutes before midnight, “Father Time” collapsed from exhaustion and the clock stopped. Then, a large fan boat entered the concert field and approached the stage. Early in its journey, the fan boat exploded away and revealed the hot dog used in the 1994 New Year’s stunt. While the band rode the hot dog to the stage, an instrumental version of Meatstick began to play over the P.A.. The band reached the stage and fed several meatsticks to Father Time, reviving him so that the clock could continue moving toward midnight. The band then took the stage and played Meatstick to begin The Show. Dancers were on stage prior to Phish reaching it. Auld Lang Syne and Disease were accompanied by fireworks. Heavy Things was recorded live and rebroadcast as part of ABC television’s New Year’s Eve coverage. In a humorous effort to confuse the home audience, Trey instructed the crowd to yell the word “cheesecake” in lieu of cheering at the end of the song. After twice giving the example of yelling the word once, Trey changed his mind and instructed the crowd to chant it, adding for them to say it like they were pissed. Trey then introduced the band for the rebroadcast and offered a message of peace and harmony for the world where he reminded people to drive in the right lane unless passing another vehicle. Meatstick was subsequently teased as the New Year approached in the central time zone. Crosseyed included a DEG tease. YEM included a vocal jam based around the word “cheesecake” and Trey altered the lyrics to Axilla and Albuquerque to reference the word. Inlaw Josie Wales featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Quadrophonic Toppling debuted, albeit with different music than on The Siket Disc, and included My Soul teasing from Mike. Rock and Roll included an After Midnight tease. Love You included band introductions; Fish introduced Page before the song and Mike and Trey afterwards, and the band as “Phish 2000” (see November 2, 1990). Piper contained Bug teases from Page. 2001 began with the signature Hood drum roll. After the show closed with yet another version of Meatstick, the Beatles song Here Comes the Sun was piped through the crowd at sunrise. Two breakouts were played: Crosseyed and Painless (first since August 13, 1997, or 159 shows), and Love You (first since July 5, 1997, or 179 shows).

Bowie was unfinished. The jam out of Have Mercy included a snippet of Bowie before returning to Have Mercy. The subsequent reggae-style HYHU contained a Have Mercy melody before leading to a vacuum solo. The Little Drummer Boy was teased in the second HYHU.

Sofi Dillof joined the band for the Meatstick Dance. We’re Not Gonna Take It made its Phish debut with Tom Marshall singing and performing various stage antics. Tweezer included a brief Sand tease. The Coil outro included a Bug tease from Mike.

Phil Lesh joined the band on a second bass guitar from YEM through the end of the show. The encore also featured Warren Haynes on guitar. Cold Rain and Snow and Viola Lee Blues were both Phish debuts. YEM did not contain a vocal jam and included Phil joining Trey and Mike on trampolines. The subsequent jam out of YEM comprised of solely Mike and Phil.

Will It Go Round in Circles and Gotta Jibboo made their Phish debuts at this show.

This show was part of the Fuji Rock Festival and took place on the Field of Heaven stage. Ghost contained Brick House teases. Before Bike, Fish told the crowd that he would play guitar instead of vacuum because the Electrolux vacuum did not make the trip to Japan. Afterwards, Trey said that the song was meant to impress Yoshimi, the drummer from The Boredoms, because Fish has “a crush on her.”

This early afternoon set took place on the Green Stage of the Fuji Rock Festival that also included Blur, Catatonia, Chemical Brothers, Fountains of Wayne, Underworld, and ZZ Top. The set was webcast live. Before PYITE, Trey apologized for not speaking the language and brought out a translator who addressed the crowd in Japanese.

Trey played keys for part of PYITE. During Meatstick, Trey talked about the band’s desire to teach fans the Meatstick Dance and break the world record. He then informed the crowd that the New Year’s Eve concert would be played in Florida. Fire's lyrics were changed to "Move over, Rover, and let the Bad Lieutenant take over." This show is available as an archival release on LivePhish.com.


Trey teased Super Bad in 2001. Weekapaug included a 2001 tease. The encore was preceded by a story from Trey about how he and Page grew up “around here” in Jersey. Trey then referenced “the greatest songwriter of all time” and said that he, too, grew up in the area. While some in the crowd expected Bruce Springsteen (who was in the middle of a run of 15 sold-out dates at New Jersey’s Continental Airlines Arena), Trey produced Tom Marshall. Tom appeared in the classic Born in the U.S.A.-era Springsteen outfit, complete with red bandana. He subsequently sang the Phish debut of Born to Run. As the song concluded, Tom mocked a bunch of Springsteen-esque arena-rock clichés, such as throwing his bandana into the crowd and jogging offstage to a handler who threw a towel around his shoulders. During the song he even aped some dance moves from the Dancing in the Dark video.

This show marked the first Mind Left Body Jam since June 18, 1994 (298 shows) although it had been teased on occasion in between. Antelope's lyrics were changed to "suck the deershit from this side of the hole."

The lyrics in Makisupa referenced “university rent-a-cop.” The transition into Caspian featured Fish on vacuum. During Caspian, a naked man jumped on stage and was kicked off by security.

This show included the Phish debut of Back at the Chicken Shack, the first Long Cool Woman since the first Phish show, December 2, 1983 (1,206 shows), and the first Manteca since November 14, 1995 (219 shows). Before Long Cool Woman, Trey remarked that “they tell us that this is the exact day” of the band’s fifteenth anniversary, though later research revealed this to be incorrect. Fish teased a return to Long Cool Woman before Antelope but quickly aborted. Tweezer subsequently included Manteca and You Better Believe It Baby teases. Driver featured Trey on acoustic guitar. The entire second set and encore, as well as Antelope, was included as filler on Live Phish 16.

Ghost contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. The long, surreal Mockingbird narration offered an “explanation” for the evening’s lunar eclipse and contained Star Trek theme teases from Page. Mockingbird was played for the first time since Halloween, 1996 (135 shows).

Divided Sky and Mike’s Song were aborted due to sound problems. The first set then ended early so that the crew could fix the P.A.. More problems arose during Sparkle, which was subsequently aborted. Trey asked the crew to turn the monitors around so the band could play through them. While they worked, the band told jokes. Trey even asked Fish to tell the Prison Joke but the sound was fixed before it actually happened. The jam out of Halley’s included a First Tube tease. Weekapaug included On Broadway teases.

This single-set performance was webcast live and was part of the annual Midtfyns Festival that also featured Sonic Machine, Psyched Up Janis, Angelique Kidjo, Hothouse Flowers, Poul Krebs & De Små Sensationer, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band. YEM did not contain a vocal jam.

Weekapaug included a Crosseyed and Painless tease and a brief jam of the song that would eventually debut as Mozambique, as well as a tease of the theme from Brazil and a quick tease of Nellie Kane from Trey.

YEM featured Crosseyed and Painless teases, did not include the bass and drums segment, and ended with a shortened vocal jam that segued into I Didn’t Know.

Emotional Rescue made its Phish debut at this show and included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. Rescue was subsequently quoted at the end of Melt and Lawn Boy. This humorous Lawn Boy featured an “anti-drum solo” - an intentionally boring one. The first set ended with the delay loop ending of Caspian played until after lights were brought back up. Trey teased Yours Is No Disgrace and Call to the Post prior to Guyute. This show was released as part of the Hampton/Winston-Salem '97 box set.

Maze was unfinished. Trey dedicated Guyute to Paul Languedoc in reference to Paul’s purported comment to the band that any song with whistling is a good song. Consequently, Antelope contained whistling in both the opening section and closing “Marco Esquandolas” section.

Phish were the musical guests on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Farmhouse made its unofficial debut.

The encore, which included the Phish debut of Messin’ with the Kid, featured Sugar Blue on harmonica and vocals. Hoochie Coochie Man was played for the first time since April 10, 1993 (382 shows). This was the first Phish show to be webcast live.

This single-set performance was part of the annual Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts that also included Beck, David Byrne, Pavement, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Spearhead, and Stereolab. Phish performed on The Pyramid Stage. Wilson was an appropriate opener, as the venue was less than 50 kilometers from Stonehenge.

Antelope's lyrics were changed to "Been you to have any spike tongue" and Marco Esquandolas was changed to "The Jersey drunk." Ghost included San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. Julius contained a brief Stairway to Heaven tease from Trey.

Phish continued their tradition of breaking out new songs at the beginning of a tour; Trey announced after Dogs Stole Things that the band had written 15-16 new songs in the last eight weeks and that they would be debuting many of them at this show.
