Antelope opened a show for the first time since January 26, 1990 (1,265 shows). Light included repeated Mercy Mercy Mercy (Joe Zawinul) teases by Page. Fish returned for the encore with a banana, causing Trey to fill time by remarking that Fish almost passed out from rocking so hard during the second set.
