Live Phish Vol. 16 was recorded live at Thomas and Mack Center located on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in Paradise, Nevada on Halloween night, 1998.

It marks the fourth of six legendary Halloween shows in which Phish dressed up in a "musical costume" by performing an album from another artist in its entirety. On this night, the band unveiled a complete performance of the Velvet Underground's Loaded sandwiched in between two sets of Phish's own music.

This performance is the only Halloween performance that sees Phish straying away from the album's original format, instead embarking on several extended improvisational jams throughout the set. Two of the album's songs - "Lonesome Cowboy Bill" and "Sweet Jane" - had already been performed by Phish in concert. The group later admitted that they could not fully decide on a choice for the 1998 Halloween album so they decided to go with an album that they already knew for the most part.

Fan reaction was mixed as many were not familiar with the album, though a few of the songs would later become Phish concert staples.

Disc four is a bonus disc recorded the night before as part of the band's 15th Anniversary celebration.

Though it is not the longest concert in the series, this is the longest volume in the Live Phish Series with the bonus disc bringing the total length to just under five hours.
