[1] Debut.

This show featured the first performances of Tweezer Reprise, Guelah Papyrus and Chalk Dust Torture. Page and Trey teased Dixie during Reba. The Mango Song was played for the first time since September 16, 1989 (182 shows), though Trey curiously introduced it as being “new.” The second set was cut short due to Brown University’s curfew; after Cavern, a representative from Brown (Trey: “I don’t want to tell them, you tell them!”) informed the crowd that the show had to end by midnight and that the next song had to be the last. During a pause in Letter to Jimmy Page, Trey noted: “we’re not going to forget that this got cut short, and the next time we’re back in the area we’re going to make it up to you.” Before the hasty encore Trey remarked: “we’re going to have to watch out for the ‘big hook!'”
