Stellar
(BC over opening drums: Good evening, London, thank you! We are the Smashing Pumpkins, we are very happy to be here with you to-night, tonight, tonight. We hope you have a good time, love thy neighbor.)
BC: Thank you. ... Like to introduce Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. (big cheer) Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. (big cheer) Shit, my name’s Jimmy Chamberlin too. Everybody doin’ alright?
Perfect (Billy acoustic w/Jimmy tambourine)
Lily
BC: (in southern accent) Thank you very kindly, Texas. I do appreciate your support. (normal voice) I’m not imitating President Bush, I’m imitating that ugly girl from the Dixie Chicks. We’d like to play a song for you now, how you doin’ up there, you okay up there? Are you alright up there? Alright. Okay, I see. We’d like to play a song from our new EP, this is a song called The Rose March. Don’t get too sad now.
The Rose March
Today
> Tarantula
Stand Inside Your Love
> Ava Adore
BC: Alright! Alright. Alright. It’s alright, it’s gonna be alright, don’t worry about it. Let’s take a little break for a second, take a little deep breath...(inhales)...breathe in the chem trails...the pollution, yeah, nice deep breath. By the way, Ginger here...gentlemen, she’s off the market, she just got engaged today. She’s still single until she gets married. She’s getting married in like ten years. Congratulations, Ginger, let’s all congratulate Ginger. Show the ring, show the ring. Cover your eyes, it’s very, uh, heh heh. Alright, I’d like to play a song now, uh, about the exact opposite of what Ginger’s going through, this is about the failure of a relationship. One of many that I’ve been through. Did someone say it’s my fault? I would agree with them. It’s my fault for being loving, caring, nurturing, sensitive, brilliant, a good gift giver, great in the sack, it’s my fault. What’s not my fault is worthless bitches who don’t know what they want. That means you! Just kidding, sorry, I was pointing at Lisa. Lisa recently got divorced, Lisa, you wanna come out here for a second, you’re single. Come on, Lisa! Lisa, Lisa.... (crowd chants Lisa) Heh heh. Although Lisa has an incredibly hot boyfriend and you can’t compete.
Jeff: No way, no way.
BC: Not even close, he’s like a rock god.
Jeff: He’s not me, no, it’s not me.
BC: He’s got the abs and everything. Unlike you English, uh, beer drinker types. You don’t have the abs, you know it. Hey, I don’t have the abs! Heh. Anyway, heh heh. Is everybody alright? (Robert Plant impression) I said is everybody alright? (normal voice) Gonna play some Zeppelin now. Heh heh heh. Come on, Jimmy, Jimmy Page.
Dazed and Confused (tease)
BC: Like to play a song, um, like to play a song, uh, that came out when many of you were embryos. Drunken mistakes. Unloved spawn. 1991, this is a song called Drown.
Drown
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Call the Shots (tease - 2 choruses) (Billy solo acoustic)
(BC after one chorus: Come on! I love this song.)
(BC after another chorus: That’s the greatest song ever written. Better than anything by the Beatles. No, I’m serious, I like that song.)
> 1979 (Billy solo acoustic)
BC: Thank you very much, thank you!
That’s the Way (Billy acoustic w/Lisa)
My Blue Heaven (Billy w/Lisa)
The Everlasting Gaze

(BC spoken verse: Everyone’s gonna be a big star / Everyone’s gonna know who you are / They're gonna wanna know everything about you / What even underwear you wear, ugh / They're gonna wanna know just all those little things / That don't matter / I just wanna go back to Kansas. I just wanna go back to Kansas. Can I go back to Kansas, please? Can I? Can I get a witness? Just wanna go back to Kansas. I wanna go back to Kansas. Please Auntie Em, please Auntie Em, I just wanna go back to Kansas. Just click your shoes three times, everything's gonna be alright.)

Daydream
> Wound
> United States / Star Spangled Banner
BC: Thank you!
[encore break]
Lips Like Sugar
(BC after lyrics: That’s the end of the concert, thank you very much. That’s the end of, it’s, uh, blah blah. It’s been a very big pleasure to play for you tonight. We love you very much, we thank you very much. We played that song on shhhh...shhhh, kick it down, take it down, Jeff. We played that song because sometimes people have a way of overlooking the great bands in their own country. Echo & the Bunnymen is one of the greatest bands England’s ever produced. Joy Division, Echo & the Bunnymen. Incredible bands that we owe, uh, a great debt of gratitude to. So that’s our way of shouting out our love. So we love you, we thank you very much. We hope you had a great time. Thank you. (scats to music a little) Heh heh. Bye.)
