Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
The Aeroplane Flies High
> Jellybelly
Tonight, Tonight
BC: Hey, what's up?
Iha: You look good.
BC: Nice to see everybody, how's everybody doing? For obvious reasons, we don't talk anymore. Uh, we just - we got sick of hearing our own dumb shit come out of our mouths, so...so we just play music, we hope you have a good time, thank you very much.
Fuck You
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Rocket
Iha: Thank you, thank you very much. Now, ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to bring a special guest to the stage, all the way from Milwaukee, yes, it's Jimmy Frog!
BC: Say hello to Jimmy Frog.
Iha: Jimmy Frog will lead us on this next song and we will dance into oblivion so, come on along.
1979 (with Jimmy Flemion)
BC: Thank you very much, Jimmy. See, it being 1997 and all, we realize that we cannot entertain you so we need to bring out help. Because you're all jaded people. This I guessed. This is our new single, it's called Thirty-three.
Thirty-three (acoustic)

[encore break]
BC: Thanks a lot. Most people don't know this but um - should I tell ‘em, James?
Iha: Uh, you shall.
BC: You sure you want everyone to know this?
Iha: Uh, go ahead, go ahead.
BC: You're sure?
Iha: Let's just put it out in the open.
BC: Most people do not know this but James is related to Bobby Knight. (huge crowd cheer)
Iha: I'm speechless. Me and Bob, way back we go. As long as the Hoosier dynasty has been around.
BC: In fact, it was Uncle Bob who showed you your first E chord.
Iha: He's a - most people don't know this - a hell of a guitar player. We played with him, hell of a guitar player.
D’arcy: Didn't he use to babysit for you, James?
Iha: Yes, that is correct. That's how I learned the guitar. And uh...little too outside.
D’arcy: You know, he still does sometimes babysit for James.
Iha: On this point, I don't know why anyone would believe this so, who knows what could happen here. We respect the Hoosier....
BC: We send this song out to anyone who's ever been yelled at by Bob Knight.
Iha: Thank you, they’ll play along.
By Starlight
Siva / Spiders
[encore break]
Iha: Gracias, grazia, grazie. Thank you very much. Are you people still with us? Alright.
BC: You’re not burned out yet, you're still with us?
Iha: Do you people want a rock and roll introduction to the next song? No? Do you people want a rock and roll introduction?
BC: Hey! I don't give a fuck what they want.
Iha: What are you saying, you don't care about the fans?
BC: I'm a difficult artist.
Iha: Oh, I forgot we're uh, well, I'm gonna go put on the flannel and come out again, get rid of all this unnecessary stuff. 'Cause, you see, we came from the era of grunge rock. No entertainment, strictly grunge. Alright, I'll give a little slight introduction to this next song, it's called...(whispered) X.Y.U.

Silverfuck / Space Jam / Bury Me
(BC at 21:23: Like to thank you one last time for stickin’ around. We appreciate your support and love very much, thank you for a nice night. God bless you, we are the Smashing Pumpkins.)
(BC at 25:07: That’s it, bye, go home. ... Just one...small political point, doesn’t it seem kind of a waste of money to have another inauguration considering he already is the president?)
