For the entire New Year’s Run, the stage was set up as an aquarium, complete with sand, seaweed, rocks, and a giant clam. Suzy included a Tweezer Reprise tease and Possum included Kashmir and Jean Pierre teases. Peaches (first since June 23, 1989, or 558 shows) was likely played in memory of Frank Zappa, who passed away a few weeks before. Subsequently, SOAM included Peaches teases. Ya Mar included an Auld Lang Syne tease and Hood included a Simpsons signal. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. My Friend started out with Trey on acoustic guitar and did not contain the "Myfe" ending.
