There were no lights used during the jam, the band using only the light from the candles, which Trey explained is similar to the idea of what happens during a glow-stick war, with the light for the band coming from the fans. Because candles were placed around and througout the stage, Trey explained that they were in fact playing in a "temple of fire" as the advertisements for summer tour shows announced. After finishing the jam, the band picked up tiki torches, lit them using the candles on stage and lit a small stone (?) temple at the edge of the stage, which was left burning overnight and throughout the band's performance on Sunday.
