The first set was almost a complete Gamehendge narration and was the second time the saga was performed live. Forbin’s through McGrupp featured narration between the songs. This was the first Gamehendge since March 12, 1988 (442 shows). Reba contained a DEG tease from Trey. After Love You, Trey introduced Fish as “Hankrietta” and “the shortest man in rock and roll.” The Bowie intro included a hi-hat “solo” from Fish, while Trey explained how Fish’s hi-hat serves as his escape from reality and joked that if the fans wanted to come to the next gig, they’d be introduced to Fish’s ice bell. The Bowie intro also included three Charlie Chan signals and Oom Pa Pa, Simpsons, and Popeye signals (but, notably, the band responded to the Popeye signal by singing a random note, which is the Random Note signal’s “secret language”). Carolina was performed without microphones.
