Somehow, this classic New Year’s show hasn’t ever been featured on Phish Thoughts. Now it has. Following an incredible three nights, Phish put the cherry on top in Larry Bird’s joint, The Boston Garden. With a show that brought a classic celebratory vibe, Phish had clearly left taken their deepest dives earlier in the run. The famous hot dog that re-emerged at Big Cypress now resides in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.

Notes: Before the lights went out for the third set, the audience “overheard” the band before the set. Fish wound up saying “I want a jumbo hot dog, large fries and shake” delivered on stage. The band came out, started up My Sweet One, and was interrupted by an announcer asking who ordered the food. The band pointed at Fishman, who looked confused as huge props of a hot dog, fries and shakes descended from the ceiling next to the drum set. The band played 2001 while the hot dog landed. The James Bond Theme was then broadcast over the PA while technicians (wearing “Rocket Scientist” jackets) prepared the hot dog, and the band climbed in with their instruments and flew out over the audience. Various music, including the Captain Beefheart song Tropical Hot Dog Night, was played over the P.A. as the hot dog space ship flew back and forth. This version of Bouncing appears on A Live One.
