The band played Meatstick seemingly at the instigation of a crowd chant of the lyrics that began behind the stage. Caspian included a DEG tease from Trey. YEM included a lengthy Meatstick session immediately following the trampolines segment. As Fish took a drum solo, Trey set his guitar down to perform the Meatstick Dance while the crowd chanted the lyrics. The band jammed back into YEM, but then left Page to solo while again Trey danced and the crowd sang. This cycle repeated with Mike soloing on bass. YEM lacked its standard vocal jam. Trey rapped: “time for the Meatstick” over the intro to Tweezer Reprise, which also had its normal lyrics replaced with “won’t you step into the Meatstick?” Wolfman’s contained teases of Simple, Jean Pierre, Sneakin’ Sally, and Possum.

Secret Smile featured a new arrangement.  This was the first Sneakin' Sally to contain a vocal jam since May 28, 1989 (1,150 shows). The vocal jam led into a brief quote of Coconut.  Trey then asked Fish if he was wearing his “new suit,” referring to his sonic dress. After Fish answered “no,” Trey went on to rap about how people would have to attend the following night to see Fish play it. The rap slid into a bit of free-form vocal jamming to close the show.
