Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
Tonight, Tonight
> Cherub Rock
> Where Boys Fear to Tread
BC: Hello. Thanks for coming, nice to see you. This is one of them old songs.
Rhinoceros
BC: Thank you. That's James, that's D'arcy, that's Matt.
Iha: Yo yo yo, keepin’ it real.
BC: Dennis, you wanna come say hi? That's Dennis. It’s okay, you can come over here, heh heh. I'm Fred.
Iha: Uh, later on, Dennis will speak to you. (Billy starts Zero) He has many surprises.
Zero
> Fuck You
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Rocket
BC: Thanks a lot.
Norwegian Wood (tease) (acoustic)
BC: How is everyone? As you know, we've gotten progressively wimpier as we've gotten older. And this is our wimpy anthem, it's called Thirty-three.
Thirty-three (acoustic)
Iha: Seattle Rock City, are you still with us? Alright. You're not wimped out now?
Barracuda (tease) (acoustic)
(Iha: I hear Heart. Do you know any other...? I don't know the words.)
BC: I bet you don't know the words to that one.
Iha: Well, wait, what's another Seattle favorite?
1979 (acoustic)
Circus tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Thank you very much. ... James, would you like to tell a joke?
Iha: Uh...so, this grasshopper goes into a bar, says “I'd like to have a beer.” The bartender says "Don't you wanna have a drink that's named after you?" and he said "Oh, you mean John?" Hunh! Ladies and gentlemen, eight years of show business right down the toilet. Now this next song, I hope you're really gonna like, it's called Muzzle, let’s all rock.
Muzzle
Disarm
> Planet of the Apes clip
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
[encore break]
Iha: Thanks, thanks a lot. Thanks a lot. You guys have been rockin’.
BC: Wait, I gotta say something first. Check it out. ‘Member when they were gonna trade Shawn Kemp for Scottie Pippen? (crowd boos)
Iha: Ah, sports rivalry.
BC: Well, I'm glad they didn't but Shawn Kemp is still the bomb, boy.
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (tease)
(Iha: No, no, no, no. Yeah, yeah yeah yeah, yeah. People of Seattle! This is not a tea party, it’s a fuckin’ rock and roll concert! I want you people to give me some fuckin’ energy right now, come on! Yeah! (Matt solos) Alright. Drum solo. (Matt solo ends, Billy solo starts) Come on, yeah! Play those Chicago fuckin’ blues. Yeah! Play that shit. Hetrick ain’t got nothin’ on you. Alright, alright.)
Iha: Let's get back to the rock and roll, we're glad you're all here, be safe. This next song is called (whispered) X.Y.U.
X.Y.U.
[encore break]
Iha: Hey, thanks a lot. ... We have a technical problem...as is our usual.
By Starlight
BC: Thank you very much, thank you very much. Just wanna thank you once again for coming to the concert, for being totally great, awesome, wonderful, all those kind of nice things. Thank you for listening to our music. Thank you for being you.
Siva (abandoned after first chord because Iha talks simultaneously)
Iha: Whoa.
BC: You had to blow it.
Iha: Whoa.
BC: You had to fuckin’ blow it, didn't you?
Iha: Well, I [2 unintelligible words].
Siva / The Great White Buffalo / Train Kept A-Rollin
(BC during breakdown towards end: Every night, during this part, we pay tribute to Ted Nugent. Because Ted spoke about the coming of the great white buffalo. Do you know the tale of the great white buffalo?, heh. James does not know the tale of the great white buffalo. The only thing James knows is a heh heh, is that the... (Iha plays two chords from Train Kept A-Rollin'.)
Iha: Hey.
BC: ...the train kept a-rollin’.
Iha: Yeah. Um, I don’t know it because Ted Nugent scares me. He frightens me...‘cause he’s a homophobe and uh, he doesn’t seem like a very nice guy. He may be out of his mind but I’ll give you that, that’s a good rock and roll riff.)
Iha: Thanks.
[encore break]
Iha: Alright. Thanks, thanks again. We have a few more rock opuses for you.
The Aeroplane Flies High
> Silverfuck / Space Jam
(BC at 21:04: Thanks once again. See you...later. We appreciate you very much stickin’ around for the whole show, it’s really cool, thank you very much. We are, have been and will always be the Smashing Pumpkins.)
