There was a strange white canvas ball hanging from the ceiling, on which various images were projected during the show.

* With "Auld Lang Syne" tease(s).
# During the song, fried eggs, udder balls, and olive loaves were projected on the canvas (in reference/relating to last night's narration). This was followed by the countdown and a balloon drop at midnight. The balloons broke both Page's and Mike's mics.
^ With a "Birdland" (Weather Report) tease.
$ Page sang this Frank Sinatra cover (first time played).

Phish Companion says: Ya Mar included Auld Lang Syne teases and Maze included a Birdland tease. Page debuted New York New York during the encore. My Sweet One was played for the first time since 12/14/95 (155 shows).
