At approximately 11:50pm Father Time collapsed from exhaustion and the clock stops. At this time a fan boat was heard from a set of speakers in the back corner of the concert field and a large fan boat entered the field from halfway back, stage right. After crossing 1/4th of the field the sides and top of the fan boat were blown off to reveal the band riding in the hot dog from the 1994 NYE show. The hotdog crossed the concert field and the approached the stage as the band threw lei's and other goodies into the crowd. As the hot dog neared the stage, an instrumental version of "Meatstick" came over the PA. Once the hotdog reached the stage, the band disembarked carrying several meatsticks which were fed to Father Time, reviving him so that the clock could continue moving towards midnight., - instrumental version with the band picking up the song from a pre-recorded version played over the PA for the last 45 seconds of the year.^^ - with vocal/instrumental jam as Trey, Mike and Page sang the notes as they played them, ^^^ - recorded live for ABC TV's Millennium coverage (aired between 3:15 and 3:30am EST); Trey instructed the crowd to chant the word "Cheesecake" rather than clap and cheer at the close of the song in an attempt to confuse the TV viewers (similar to the "secret language" additions for the 1992 NYE show); Trey introduced the band for the recorded footage and offered a message of peace and love for the world about the importance of the left lane of the highway being the passing lane, ^^^^ - teased as midnight neared for the Central timezone % - with "Cheesecake" vocal jam, %% - Trey solo acoustic, %%% - from "The Siket Disc" with Mike holding up a voice box repeating the phrase "Quadrophonic Toppling". %%%% - with Jon on vacuum; Jon introduced Page before the song and Mike and Trey afterwards, and the band as being Phish 2000. $ - no encore; post-show music over the PA was the Beatles "Here Comes the Sun"
