Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
> Where Boys Fear to Tread
Fuck You
BC: Hi. Thanks. Nice to see you. Nice to play in such a historic building. As you know, we tore ours down so don’t let ‘em ever tear yours down.
To Forgive
“Thank you for participating” tape
> Tonight, Tonight
Iha: Hello. I was supposed to say something, it was supposed to be a insane “get your damn dirty ape paws off of me” but um, for whatever reason, we didn’t have any audio. It was very funny to have heard it.
BC: Thank you very much. This is uh, I think we have seven or eight shows total in Canada and this is the...the fourth one that we’ve played so far and all the shows have been really wonderful and thank you for such a warm reception.
BC: Thanks again. Any requests?
Iha: I like the - I like the acoustic guitar.
BC: This lady wants to hear Drown. [unintelligible] But we don’t know that one. Did anybody see us at the zoo? Heh heh. [unintelligible]
Disarm (acoustic)
Circus tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Cherub Rock
Iha: On this next song, we will prominently feature our keyboard player, Dennis Frog. Thanks, thanks, [unintelligible] a big wave.
Thru the Eyes of Ruby
BC: Thank you to [unintelligible].
[encore break]
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Beautiful
> Rocket (tease)
[encore break]
Iha: Alright. Everybody, we have a special guest star tonight. He’s come all the way from Milwaukee, he just flew in, his arms are pretty tired. He’s a good man. We don’t do stadium rock things very often but right now, let’s put those hands together, come on. Special guest here Kerry Brown. [cut in tape] It’s been five long years since he’s been on the stage and now he’s gonna make his entrance in a rather great, spectacular style. Ladies and gentlemen, Jimmy Frog.
Some Kind of Wonderful (w/Billy on bass & Kerry Brown on vocals)
D’arcy: I don’t think so.
BC: Can you hear me? Hello? Hello! I believe that will go on as one of the greatest moments in the history of rock, thank you.
Iha: [unintelligible]. Ladies and gentlemen, that was a freak out there for a minute.
Jimmy Frog: Bonjour, Toronto. That’s a song I learned on the way to the zoo today. This next song is the biggest hit in Canada by the Pumpkins, it’s called 1979.
1979 (with Kerry Brown on guitar)
BC: Um, we’d like to do one more song for you if that’s okay. Once again, thank you for a great concert. We’ve had a really nice time.
Iha: [unintelligible]
BC: You have a lovely city, we met a lot of nice people today, so thank you very much.
