This show featured some great stage banter. Brother was dedicated to “the guy who offered us $10,000 to play a different song.” In the HYHU intro, Fish said “I hate this fucking song,” that the only reason the band plays the song is because he hates it and added “All I have do in this band is say I hate something, and it’ll be done forever.” Trey told the crowd that HYHU is the Henrietta theme precisely because Fish hates it. “It used to be ‘La Bamba,’” he noted, prompting Mike to play a bit of La Bamba. The HYHU outro featured Fish on trombone and later telling the crowd "you paid for this, this is what you bought." Trey said "If you only knew what a nightmare that was for poor Fish, having to listen to that song" and Fish responded with “they just do it out of HATE.” Trey asked who could tell him who wrote that song, and a fan answered correctly. Trey said the fan won the $10,000 the other guy was going to give them to a play a song and Page said the fan won a date with Fish, with Trey adding "and you can guarantee that he'll be late." After Golgi, Trey thanked the crowd, saying "we'll be right back with more songs that Fish hates, more songs that we love, and more songs that people are willing to pay $10,000 to hear." Trey introduced Page as Leon before his piano solos in My Sweet One and Rocky Top. Before Fish's trombone solo in I Didn't Know, Trey mentioned the last time they played in the area (see 4/11/91), they made Fish get up and tell a joke (The Prison Joke) that was "absolutely the stupidest joke ever" and that he (Trey) wasn't going tell the punchline. Trey went on to explain that most people around here thought Fish was a pretty bad joke teller and he wanted to give him a chance to redeem himself.  Fish's joke was "Why did the Siamese twins go to England? To let the other one drive for a while." Page also teased HYHU while Trey talked. Adeline was sung from the balcony without microphones to open the encore. Possum contained two Charlie Chan signals as well as Simpsons and Random Laugh signals in its intro and subsequently contained Rock On (David Essex) teases.
