Notes

  • The first performance had a number of audio and microphone issues, including a missed mic cue with Dave Goelz while he was performing Gonzo during the Muppet medley, which resulted in his lines being barely audible.
  • Despite performing multiple characters in the show, Steve Whitmire and Bill Barretta were not listed among the performers in many of the concert's promotional materials.
  • During the first performance, Kevin Clash (Elmo) caught Steve Whitmire (Ernie) off guard during "Rubber Duckie" by having Elmo squeaking for Ernie's Rubber Duckie, which caused Whitmire to laugh.
  • At the start of the show, a clip of Rowlf and Jimmy Dean at Carnegie Hall in 1965 was shown. Rowlf himself popped up a few seconds later and commented that "...I was such a hit, I knew they'd have me back...I just didn't think it would take 47 years!"
  • This concert marked the last time Jerry Nelson performed with the Muppets.
