At the beginning of Brother, Trey said "this is the alligator moat up here, so make sure you don't fall into it." and later the song's lyrics to reference the "alligator pit." Antelope contained a Jean Pierre tease from Trey. Fish was on trombone for parts of Antelope (which also included a Simpsons signal). Trey teased Roundabout before Mike’s Song and uttered the line, “Help me... I’m melting and I can’t solidify!” Weekapaug contained Long Tall Glasses vocals, Oom Pa Pa and Random Note signals, and a brief On Broadway tease from Trey. Sanity's intro featured various nicknames of the band and crew being shouted, while the end contained a vocal jam with more names being called out. Fish used the Bag-Vac during Terrapin. The Secret Language Instructions featured introductions of the Simpsons, Random Note, Turn Turn Turn, and All Fall Down Signals with Bowie being played in the background and included a Can't You Hear Me Knocking tease from Trey. Possum subsequently contained two Simpsons signals and an All Fall Down signal.

To Start with the Vibe of the crowd was awesome, I think everyone in the place was on somthing and tuned in a just ready for somthing special. This set list was special. Wilson to open, then a Special Reba great version prob my favorite of all time, next was a smokin Brother Jumping into the Aligator pit which Trey was calling the Orchestra part of the arena that was empty right infront of the stage. If you listen to a 3.0 Brother you can understand why this one is so special. Glide played perfectly then Rift which at the time was the 3rd or 4th version. Next came Fluffhead which was my 1st time seeing the song and was very special.Next came another 3rd or 4th ever version of a song and this time it was a smokin MAZE! Lizards and Mound were next and then a big Antelope to close Fish played the Tombone at the end of the song which I've never seen befor or since. Great set!
The Second was as impressive if not more than the 1st. Just look at the Setlist Mikes Sanity Sloth Mango to open had jaws on the Floor. This is back in the day when They still used the Trampolines for the Mikes. Also I'd like to mention the Minkin backdrops which I loved and still think produced some of the best light show expirences. Evil version of Cavern then a Tight versin of Uncle penn was a break then came a Great Version of Harry Hood. Fishman did his Vacum thing which I'm not not a fan of but then came the Lessons and Signals which I had saw in Prothsmouth earlier this tour but loved it just the same. Funny story about this one I had a buddy who was spaced out Trey gave the instructions for the Fall down sign then did it my friend was the only one in the building who was still standing he was messed up lol. Possum was smokin and tested the signals out. -encore was Lawn Boy (Trey Played the solo which he surrenders nowadays to Mike) and then Fire which left us wanting more after a raging show!
Just a PERFECT show from start to finish. The band was never tighter in n every song it showed. I relisten and can hear the band gelling at every moment.
The other thing I'd note about this show is Trey's guitar tone has never sounded better. This was the Pinicle of Trey's Guitar Tone
