Pre-Midnight: Set-up included screens behind the stage, flamingoes and palm trees on it, and huge coconut-looking balloons hanging from above. "Wilson" picked up with the "BLAT BOOM" line -- that is, where last night's unfinished version left off. "Weekapaug" had an "Auld Lang Syne" tease/jam, and "Jungle Boogie" vocals. "Moma Dance" had a "Divided Sky" tease. "Tube" began mid-way through, finishing where last night's version left off. "Chalkdust" had "Auld Lang Syne" teases. "Jungle Boogie" is a Kool and the Gang cover, first time played (although it has long been in Pork Tornado's repertoire).
Midnight Gag: As midnight neared during "Jungle Boogie," Fish's drum kit was moved to the side of the stage. A 10'x10'-square platform with a circular rug that had been in the back left of the stage was moved into Fish's usual spot. The rug turned out to be a cover for a hollow center, which lined up with a trap door under the stage. A miniature car, reportedly a Mini Cooper, was lowered to the same spot on the stage. The gutted car was painted light blue, with flames on the front, and was blacklight-sensitive, giving it a phosphorescent glow. A full marching band, replete with cheerleaders (in masks), came out of the car one-by-one (including tuba/sousaphone players!). The band was the Miami Palmetto Sr. High School Marching Panther Band. The marching band also had a mascot in a number 72 jersey, with the name taped over with black tape, wearing a pig (?) mask. Also emerging were costumed dancers similar to [same as?] the sort of demented bunny-women present at the IT Festival this summer. The band members and others were actually walking in from the back center of the stage, up a set of stairs under the stage, and out of the car -- giving the effect that they were all coming from the car itself. With the stage covered with dancers (some even on top of Page's baby grand piano), the marching band drumming and blaring, Fish counted the clock down to midnight. A massive balloon drop followed with "Auld Lang Syne." "Iron Man," a Black Sabbath cover, was performed instrumental
