Apparently Fish got a speeding ticket on the way to the show and someone else had to set up his drum set. The Hood intro featured an Odd Couple theme tease from Page. The Fishin' Hole (aka The Andy Griffith Show theme) started with the band whistling and ended with the audience whistling to the band’s accompaniment! Slave was introduced by Mike as being written by Pete Rose; Avenu Malkenu was subsequently announced as a song written by “Pete Rose and God.” Donna Lee contained an Entrance of the Gladiators tease from Trey, the Bowie intro contained If I Were a Rich Man teases, and Antelope included a Paint it Black tease. This show was officially released as Live Phish 09.
