Iha: Sorry you had be subjected to Wagner there for uh, six hours.
Corgan: Uh. Hi. Uh. HI! Hi. So you ready?
Geek U.S.A.
Corgan: Thank you
Iha: Hello
Wretzky: You're all so far away. We're not used to playing shows in these big halls, it's weird
Iha: Thank you. This being the big rock festival that it is, we hope we can rock you... like no other band knows
I Am One
Iha: This is the first [unintelligible] sell out tour and we're really slow so.. just keep moshing about and rockin' out there while we tune. I don't know if, you probably can't understand a word of what I'm saying but I was talking about the grand recluse spider

Corgan: So thank you all for coming, it's a beautiful night, no rain. Glad you're all here. Detroit fuckin' rocks! This is an awesome place to play
Iha: Paul Stanley wishes he could play here
Corgan: Who?
Iha: Paul Stanley of Kiss
Corgan: Paul Stanley? Isn't he dead?
Iha: No man, he's right out there with you. Paul Stanley's out there with you tonight people
Corgan: You mean Paul Stanley from Kiss is out there is the audience?
Iha: That's right, Paul Stanley from fuckin' Kiss is out there tonight
Corgan: Look around, where is he? Raise your hand Paul... there he is, no, no...
Iha: Fuckin' Paul's out there, I can feel it
Cherub Rock
Corgan: Is everyone having a good time? We wouldn't wanna bum your trip. I know all of you took a bunch of LSD and mushrooms before the show
Iha: ...to heighten your experience
Corgan: We wouldn't wanna bum you out, you know
Iha: These kids are cyber kids, man, they don't need drugs, they're cyber kids
Corgan: Oh they're into computers?
Iha: Yeah
[over intro] And now I will do an interpretative dance to his guitar

Corgan: Why do you wanna hear old songs?.. but I don't wanna play old songs. We're not the fuckin' Beach Boys you know. OK, 'California Girls' and 'Fun Fun Fun', and I know... I know, fuck the Beach Boys. So what do you wanna hear?
Iha: They wanna hear the old songs, man
Corgan: Altogether now
Iha: Alright, let's have one shout of one song - 1,2,3
[random shouts]
Iha: Yeah we know that one, we ain't playin' that one
Iha: Man these goggles are really fuckin' cool
Corgan: Is this a good concert? huh huh? Are we rocking you with our sounds?
Wretzky: This is so ridiculous, you guys are gonna throw shoes, throw PAIRS of shoes. We have four shoes up here, none of them match
Corgan: Just what I want, throw more shoes, thanks, thanks a lot, that's really what I want
No, I don't need change, thank you
Iha: Alright
Corgan: Hey by the way, somebody threw their keys on stage so I hope you can get home without your car. No I don't want your shoes, it's obvious you have something wrong with your feet... I know shut up and play, we always get that. But it's such a beautiful night I'm in no fucking hurry
Iha: It's a beautiful night, the people are all really beautiful and dreamy and starry
Corgan: Everyone looks so beautiful
Iha: I just wanna commit sodomy with all of you
Corgan: He just wants to make love to every single one of you, all of you. He's got a lot of stamina, trust me. Call me Piston.. James 'Piston' Iha
Iha: No it's James Roder Router
Corgan: So here's a little love song for all of you all
Somewhere Over the Rainbow (tease)

[encore break]
Corgan: So who has the new record? That's it? There should be more... ha, just kidding. That's alright you don't have to buy it just.. no, I won't say that
Iha: You guys are a bunch of corporate sellouts. we'd like to play you our power ballad
Corgan: This is 'Mayonaise'
Corgan: So once again thank you for coming, thanks for sharing this beautiful night. We'll come back soon and fuck you again
Always on the Run (tease)
Corgan: That was a dumb joke
When You Wish Upon a Star (tease)
