[encore break]
Iha: Thank you very much, you're very kind...Portland Rock City. How is everybody doing, alright? We're in uh, we’re in the Rose Garden so I have to ask these arena rock cliches: “How are ya?!” Heh heh. Okay, good. Good to know you're havin’ fun.
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (tease - Billy plays riff a few times while Iha talks)
Iha: Oh, no, heh. No, no. No. (Billy has stopped playing In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by this point) Yeah. Yeah, yeah, Portland Rock City!
Swallowed (tease)
Iha: Alright, we have another rock jam for you.
BC: It's that Bush song. (singing) Swallowed, swallowed, heavy metal wonderland of sin. Swallowed, swallowed, heavy metal m - (abruptly stops playing).
Iha (all over Billy singing): (singing) Swallowed. (speaking) Come on! You know this fuckin’ song! Come on! Everybody swallow! Yeah!
BC: What's he talking about swallowing though?, I [2 unintelligible words].
Iha: I don’t know, it’s a bit racy. I would just like to remind everybody that Celine Dion is gonna be here at the end of the month, let’s, you know, come on out - on out, let’s rock.
BC: A fine Canadian singer.
Iha: Yes, yes.
BC: That Beauty and the Beast song, that was what got me.
Iha: No, we are not being facetious, we truly admire her singing talents and we hope that in this next song, we can emulate that vocal style. This next song is called (whispered) X.Y.U.
[encore break]
Iha: Hey, thanks again, you guys have been great. (British accent) You fucking people have been outstanding! (normal voice) And we gotta play some more songs.
BC: I still don't think that the Portland Trail Blazers should have traded Clyde Drexler. (huge crowd cheer)
Iha: Is this a big sports town? Kind of, yes, no? Where we come from -
BC: Haven’t you ever heard of the Portland Phasers basketball team, the Phasers?
Iha: Oh yeah, yeah, I like that.
BC: Like on the Star Trek, phasers.
Iha: That's soccer, right? Well, where we come from, Michael Jordan is the mayor. (crowd boos) Heh heh. Oh, the rousing mews, you're just jealous of his perfume contract.
BC: Don't forget that the Bulls beat the Trail Blazers in the finals one year.
Iha: They sort of trounced them, didn't they?
BC: Now, he doesn’t know - see, he didn't realize that was a rude comment because he doesn't know jack shit about sports.
Iha: What do you mean? Why, in my high school, I was - I was all-playground, I...all, heh heh heh.
BC: What?
Iha: I played every sport, I was - the jungle gym....
BC: He was ping pong champion of Illinois. Quick Hands Iha.
Iha: And now, these quick hands will play another grunge jam for you. (Billy starts Drown intro) Let's go back to the innocent years of grunge rock and this one came from a movie.
> Hummer (tease)
> Silverfuck / Space Jam
(BC at 23:07: Like to thank you very much again for coming. Thank you very much for stickin’ around to the end, we appreciate it very much. We respect you very much and love you very much and hope you do the same. So thank you again. Hope to see you again sometime next year, bye bye. Oh yeah, we’re the Smashing Pumpkins, bye.)
