Show Notes

This venue located within the M.H.C.C. was a small arena with a capacity of about 3,000 often referred to as Mair Hall . The pause in Guelah Papyrus between The Asse Festival and Guelah (The Fly) contained Oom Pah Pah secret language. Esther’s intro included The Simpsons and Random Note secret language. I Didn’t Know included a Black Or White jam as well as a vacuum solo by Fish. My Friend My Friend was played by Trey on acoustic guitar. This Big Ball Jam ended with Trey, Mike and Brad creating a human “hoop” onstage. This method was devised to get the audience to return the balls to the stage so the show could continue, and was used throughout the tour. Fish blew another vacuum solo during Terrapin. Harry Hood was reportedly inspired by a crowd chant. The narration in Harpua found Jimmy watching Michael Jackson on the Super Bowl XXVII halftime show and included the show’s second Black Or White jam. In an unusual twist to the story, Poster killed Harpua and died of a heart attack. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones. There was a huge snow storm this night that dumped nearly a foot of snow. During this show, Trey first told the audience about the band’s $1,000 bet that Fish couldn’t be on time for the whole tour.
