This was Phish’s only show at the Jesse Auditorium – a historic auditorium that dates back to the 19th century with a capacity of 1,796. Tickets cost $15.50 for students and $17.50 for the general public and the show was sold out. Sweet Adeline was performed A capella without microphones and closed the shortest set I of the tour, which clocked in at about 50 minutes.
This show saw the return of two Beatles’ songs from Halloween, Cry Baby Cry and Blackbird, the latter of which has never been performed by Phish since. Runaway Jim was performed unfinished and segued into Big Black Furry Creature From Mars, which began electric and finished acoustic with Trey on acoustic guitar, Mike on banjo, Page on upright bass and Fish on mandolin. I’m Blue I’m Lonesome, Little Tiny Butter Biscuits and My Long Journey Home were also performed acoustic with Trey on acoustic guitar, Mike on banjo, Page on upright bass and Fish on mandolin.
Harry Hood was played by request from an audience member’s after Trey invited him to pick the next song. This was the 4th standalone The Lizards encore ever out of 5 total and it had been more than four years (since 9/20/90) since the last one. The set II opening sequence: Funky Bitch > Columbia Jam > Yerushalayim Shel Zahav was released as filler at the end of “LivePhish18″ (5/7/94) on Elektra in May 2003. After set II ended, Brad Sands requested help from volunteers to help with load-out. Following this show, the band and crew traveled overnight to St. Louis.
