Stash ended with a full band Can’t Turn You Loose tease. After Stash, Trey announced a contest where the winner would receive four tickets and backstage passes to any show in the next year and, jokingly, a date with Fish. The question centered on what all of the songs played in the first set, with the exception of Driver, had in common. The answer was that all songs were in the Key of D.

Scent of a Mule through Llama featured Béla Fleck on banjo and Old Home Place through Nellie Kane were performed acoustic. Llama began in the acoustic setup, but during the song the band members switched back to their electric instruments. Prior to Beaumont Rag, Trey teased Sample in a Jar.

Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Dog Faced Boy was acoustic and was, along with Sweet Adeline, performed without microphones. Before Dog Faced Boy, Trey introduced Fish for a “balloon and emotion solo...that will reach into your soul and rip your heart out of your body.” Harpua included a Stonehenge quote and Flash Light jam and told of Jimmy attending a Bootsy Collins concert.

My Friend began with a cappella lyrics to the tune of Back in my Hometown. Nellie Kane, the Phish debut of Beaumont Rag, and Foreplay/Long Time were performed acoustic.

Harpua contained "Charge!" and I Wan'na Be Like You teases from Page and Sunshine of Your Love and Sunshine of My Life teases. Adeline was performed unmiced. The venue is sometimes mislabeled as “The Veranda” at Starwood; the show was scheduled to be held there but was moved to the main stage due to rain. Interestingly, Hank Williams, Jr. had already set up his PA and light system for a tour rehearsal and allowed Phish to use his rig. After Stash, Trey thanked Hank for letting Phish borrow the equipment, joked that they would like to play the Monday Night Football song in honor of him and quoted All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight. The soundcheck's If I Could also featured Krauss on vocals.

Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Ginseng Sullivan and Dog Faced Boy were performed acoustic and, along with Amazing Grace, without microphones. Ginseng also featured Fish on washboard. Antelope contained several Layla teases.

ENCORE: Walk Away, Amazing Grace


The Contact opener started before the band took the stage, as they were driven to the front in golf carts and performed the song off stage. Some fans didn’t even realize the show had started until well into Llama, as that song was begun off stage. I Didn't Know featured Fish on the Madonna washboard. Page teased Entrance of the Gladiators at the end of Cavern and I Feel The Earth Move in Tweezer, and the theme from Speed Racer in Fluffhead. The Horse, the ending of Tweezer and Fluffhead, and the beginning of My Friend featured Trey on acoustic guitar. The Bowie intro contained a Squirming Coil tease from Trey. The show took place in Starwood Amphitheatre's concessions area, which was roped off to accommodate 3,500 though fewer than 1,800 tickets were sold.


Lawn Boy was played per Page's cousin Keith's request. Antelope included an I'm a Man tease from Page, an All Fall Down signal, and a Yakety Sax tease from Mike. Mike's Song contained a brief tease from Page of In the Hall of the Mountain King and multiple Another One Bites the Dust teases. The soundboard shorted out during Mound. Rocky Top featured Fish on trombone, was performed acoustic, and along with Amazing Grace through Sweet Adeline, without microphones. The band engaged in a rubber band fight between Sweet Adeline and Rocky Top.


There was a power outage during Golgi, after which Trey mocked Fish’s “memorable drum solo.” During the latter HYHU, Fish introduced the band and humorously pointed out Chris Kuroda for causing the earlier power failure. YEM included a Wilson tease and a thank you from Trey.

During I Didn’t Know, Trey commented that this was Phish’s first show in Tennessee, and dedicated Fish’s vacuum solo to Dr. Jack McConnell and other friends in the audience. After Cavern, Trey mentioned that James Brown got out on parole, which caused Fish to comment that a cease-fire was also called that day in Iraq. “Don’t tell me this wasn’t planned,” he insisted. Rocky Top was a seemingly obvious choice as closer for the first Volunteer State show.
