Superchrist

BC: Thank you. ... You feelin’ alright? ... Alright. ... Like to take a moment to, uh, introduce this great ensemble I get to play with. After all, I am a man in a dress. They’ve shown great courage. What is it that you play, Gabe, what is that? Trombone? On the trombone, Gabrial. A fine young man. On the trumpet, Stephen. Hahahaha. Fresh...fresh from his trip to South America. Studying with, uh, priestesses, you know, thank you. Ah hahaha. On flute, heh heh heh, Mr. Kris Pooley. On the bass guitar, Mrs. Ginger Pooley. (big cheer) You always get the biggest applause, always, I don’t know what it is, heh, I don’t know, heh, they must see something...in there. On the keys, Ms. Lisa. On the weird, what is that violin that you’re playing? I’m sorry, the double violin. Ms. Gingger Shankar. Just back from the North Pole. On the gee-tar, Jeff “Shredder” Schroeder. Bringin’ his A game every night. Heh heh heh. And on the drums, my main man, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. (loud sustained cheering with Billy clapping along)
Once Upon a Time (acoustic)
Again, Again, Again (acoustic)
The Rose March (acoustic)
BC: Before we start the second half of the show - is it the second half? Act 3, I don’t know. Act 3. Um, I’d like to say thank you very much for coming tonight. We do appreciate it very much. Heh heh heh. Yes. You know the first gig I ever played in Canada a guy whipped a beer bottle at me? Because he didn’t like my attitude. Heh heh heh. Heh heh heh. It hit my guitar. And then, this is a true story, Jimmy will confirm, I leapt off the stage and I choked him to the ground. That’s just the way it’s gonna be, heh heh, always. Anyway, we hope you enjoy the rest of the show. Close your eyes, sit back, relive the memories... Heh heh heh. Hahahaha. In every crowd, there’s always the unsmiling business guy, you know? I just saw him, heh heh heh. Professor Man, judging “NO.” This one goes to Professor Man, whoever you are.

BC over music: Ladies and gentlemen, that concludes our show. We hope that you’ve been entertained, titillated, stimulated, fellatiated, buggered and just generally loved by our good tones. Because here at Smashing Pumpkins Inc., copyright 1987, we’ve built a product that’ll entertain you for decades to come. And thanks to you, we’re here right now, thanks to you, yes you! - we’re here right now. Because the Smashing Pumpkins are about happiness. Happiness and pleasing you. We’re all about giving you what you want, wait! - no, we’re all about giving you what you need. Yes. And what you need is a good kick in the fucking ass! Gently, with love. And I’m just the manchild to do it. But I digress, right, Jimmy? I know I speak for Jimmy and the rest of the gang that this is the greatest show EVER! But even better than that, you’re the greatest audience that I’ve ever seen anywhere! Unbelievable! Who knew? Who knew that night 1 of Toronto would etch a tattoo of love upon my heart? Yes, you. Yes, you! But hey, we love you, we love you, we love you so much. And so this song is for you - yes, even you people leaving! - this song is for you. It’s for you! Even as you leave to go have sex with your unfaithful boyfriends, this is for you! (sings) Everything is beautiful...oh yeah. In its own way. Everyone is beautiful in your own way, that’s right. (speaking) We believe it. Yes, every life is important to the Smashing Pumpkins, every life. Everyone is beautiful. I think this is the most beautiful crowd I’ve ever seen! It must be because your state-run healthcare system. It must be. You’re way better looking than America, let me tell you. And you know what I’m talkin’ about. You know what I’m talking about. Girl in the red dress, you are beautiful. This goes out to you. (sings) Everything is beautiful in it’s own way, just look at her! Beautiful. Everyone is beautiful in your own way, that’s right. (speaking) So before we wave goodbye, we’d like to leave you with a message of love and hope. That’s right, love and hope. Just...breathe that in, love and hope. No matter how many times you abuse you, no matter how many times you...disuse us, even when you forget us, we haven’t forgotten about you. That’s right. Twenty years...boom. And oh by the way, we still rock harder than 99 percent of the fucking bands on this planet. Why? Because we care. No, we don’t care to roll out here and just play a bunch of hits and take your money, no, we have to challenge you, we have to make you think, who are the Smashing Pumpkins? Are these the Smashing Pumpkins? I don’t know, are we? We’re all the Smashing Pumpkins, get it? Of course, you won’t collect the royalty checks, but spiritually you’re all the Smashing Pumpkins. I’m sure we’ve disappointed a few of you tonight, yes, it happens. Like for instance, this young man over here yelling “Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock,” as if I’m fucking deaf! “Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, hey, Billy, Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock, you remember, Cherub Rock, it’s in E, Cherub Rock, (sings five notes of main riff), Cherub Rock.” My friend, Cherub Rock is night 2 of the extravaganza, okay? Night 2. You find me, you find me a band without beards who can play 48 fuckin’ songs over two nights, okay? This ain’t no hippie shit. This is prog, people. (sings) Everything is beautiful...oh, it’s so good!...in its own way, sing with us! (speaking) Everyone is beautiful in your own Canadian way. Saskatoon, Newfoundland, Quebec, Toronto...what a beautiful country. (sings) You’re the most beautiful crowd I’ve ever seen. (speaking) I know when I lay my head on my pillow tonight, I’ll be dreaming of you. That’s right. And as I faintly drift off to sleep, I’ll hear “(whispering) Cherub Rock (getting louder) Cherub Rock, Cherub Rock (normal voice) Cherub Rock Cherub Rock Cherub Rock Cherub Rock Cherub Rock (slowing down as if breaking) Cherub Rock Cherub Rock Cherub Rock Cherub Rock Cherub Rock” like a bad fuckin’ acid trip! My friends, ay-mena, shush, I may not be president tomorrow...but I still rule this earth right here, that’s right, (barks). Ha ha, I am the king of all this land. Cherub Rock included, fucker! I wrote that song in a car, buddy, going to work, okay? ‘Cause I didn’t have anything better to do that day. Ladies and gentlemen, we have to go, we have to go. The big hand of Geddy Lee is coming down upon us: (high pitched) “Leave the stage. Leave the stage.” (normal) So we bid you adieu until tomorrow. Good night, ladies and gentlemen! We love you! Good night! (mic drop)
