Set 1: "Wilson" was unfinished. For the record, Earl Hindman, the actor who played Wilson on TV's "Home Improvement," died on Monday 12/29. "Gin" had "Show Biz Kids" (Steely Dan) and "After Midnight" teases. In the second verse of "NICU," Mike played the bassline from "Shafty." "2001" included a "P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)" jam (with some of the lyrics sung), as well as teases of "Bathtub Gin" and "Sand."
Set 2, Pre-Funk: "Tube" was reportedly played after Trey found a frisbee labelled "Tube" on the stage when returning from setbreak, which he flashed to the other band members and the front rows. "Tube," about 12 minutes long, was unfinished. "L.A. Woman" is a Doors cover, played for the first time (although it was soundchecked on 4/17/93 and teased in Possum on 5/17/92 and 5/30/93). Additionally, the first part of the "L.A. Woman" jam (before "Birds") had notable elements of "Timber Ho." "Birds" included a jam on "L.A. Woman." The keyword in "Makisupa" was something like: "we were going to have Fish sing 'Touch Me,' but we didn't have the horns and we've forgotten the song." Then Trey paused and said, "since I got your hopes up, maybe bringing out P-Funk would make up for it."

P-Funk: Then George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic emerged to accompany Phish through a 20-minute jam that touched on several P-Funk songs and lyrics. This medley reportedly included elements (roughly in order) of a rap on the theme "Booty Ain't Nothing But a Butt," "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)," "P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)," and "One Nation Under a Groove." Clinton riffed on the chorus from "Get Low" (by Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz). During the jam a boy (apparently in his late teens, possibly with Down syndrome) appeared onstage, dancing next to Trey. He may have jumped on the stage uninvited, because security (Carini?) came out about a quarter into the jam to escort him away. Shortly thereafter, Trey himself walked off the stage after them, and returned to escort the boy back to his original position on-stage. The boy resumed his dancing next to Trey, who got a noticeable kick out of how much fun the kid was having. At one point, Trey even seemed to indicate to a cameraman to tape the kid dancing -- he pointed to the cameraman, pointed back to the kid, and seemed to make a "film him" gesture. The boy remained onstage throughout the remainder of the P-Funk jam, and w
