BC: Yeah. Love you too, young lady. Thank you very much for coming tonight. If you’ll allow me to take a moment to introduce the band to you, on the bass, Nicole Fiorentino. On the drums, Mr. Mikey Byrne. And on the guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder. My name - shhh, shut the fuck up. Just kidding, heh heh heh. Hope you’re having a good time. As you can see, we’re not fuckin’ around up here. I don’t know where that hair come from, it ain’t mine, heh heh. Ahem. My name is - heh heh - Mr. G. My name is Mr. G. Fuck you, miss. Fuck you, miss. Heh heh heh heh. Ow! (crowd copies) We gotta deal with all those “oo-ooh.”
Jeff: I like that one, that was good.
BC: (same noise but descending). And then the crowd does it. Day-o! (crowd copies) Day-hay-o. (crowd copies) (laughing) Works every time. Yes sir. Okay, we’ve now reached the second half of the concert. The second half is not as good as the first half. So if you don’t like the show to this point, go ahead and go on home now. Heh heh heh. Hello up there, how you all doin’, you alcoholics? Okay, sorry. Just because you’ve had a few drinks doesn’t make you an alcoholic. They don’t think I’m funny here, Jeff. My humor is not going over.
Jeff: I do, I think you’re funny. Hello. Hi.
BC: Alright, well, maybe you find this song funny.
Jeff: I do, heh.
BC: This song about another girl who broke my heart. Yeah. And the funny thing is, she was the hundredth girl that’s broken my heart. So it’s a little bit of an anniversary type of thing. You wanna break my heart? Oh, you’d never break my heart! They all say that, they all claim they won’t break your heart and then they do. Okay, let me ask the men in the crowd, who has had their heart broken by a woman? This whole section over here, Jeff, no heartbreak.
Jeff: I know, unbelievable.
BC: No heartbreak over there.
Jeff: We need to hang out with them.
BC: They know the secret.
Jeff: They do.
BC: Okay, on with the show. I swear to god I’m gonna play this song. And them I’m gonna die. I’m gonna play this song and then I’m gonna die.
Jeff: Yeah, you’ll explode.
BC: Heh heh, heh, this song is so good I’m just gonna explode.
BC: (small explosion noise). Well, this is the last song I’m ever gonna play so let’s make it good.
Jeff: Yeah, this is it, we’re gonna fuckin’ blow up.
BC: Now how crazy would it be if I actually died at the end of the song?
Jeff: Love it, love it!
BC: I mean, they’d love it, right? But you know what, you know what? This is how the modern world is. I would die at the end of the song, right, and what would they say on Twitter? “He didn’t play an encore. No fuckin’ encore, fuck them, I’m never gonna watch them again.” That’s right, that’s how it goes, modern world. I can see you up there! I can see you up there, you can put your top down, it’s okay. Heh heh. That’s called Chicago humor, okay? I’m from a sm - I’m from a city called Chicago. That’s right. We don’t have any Olympic gold medalists in Chicago. Only a failed president. That’s right. Okay. This song is called Spangled. Oh, thank you very much. If you like this song, it’s available on smashing pumpkins dot com for free. That’s spelled F-R-E-E-E. I love you too, mate, love you. Thank you all for coming, really, I appreciate it, thank you. Thank you so much. I know we kid around and we act all strange but we really appreciate you being here, honestly, thank you so much, thank you.
> Cherub Rock
Stand Inside Your Love
BC: Alright. Thank you so much, we are at the end of the show now. That’s right.
> Love Gun (tease)
(BC over big rock ending: Thank you very much everybody! (screamed) Thank you!!)
Get Free (with The Vines)
Craig Nicholls: Thank you.
BC: Yeah. Anyone want my guitar? You’re not good enough for the guitar. Heh heh heh heh. Should we just quit now? Who wants us to end the show right here? Okay, bye. Hey, I’m - I’m fan friendly these days, I just wanna do what the fans want, okay? I’ve had 20 fuckin’ years of pissin’ people off, I just wanna get along now, okay, I just wanna go home and eat my fuckin’ chicken. Okay? Lemme - lemme just retire in peace, okay? (singing to tune of Get Free) You never loved me, you never loved me, you never loved me, why should anyone? (speaking) Let’s just play it again, it’s so good, heh heh. Okay. Okay, this song’s about 30 minutes long, I’m warning you now. So those of you who gotta get home to Mommy, you might wanna go now, ‘cause it’s a long song, it ends with a blaze of feedback, okay? We were doing this song in America and the critics kept writing, “I had to leave because it was just too much for me and I had to get home. It was just too much feedback, endless feedback and spooling noises and I just had to leave clean with my hands over my ears.” You think you can handle this song? No, that doesn’t sound very convinced. (big crowd cheer) Now that sounds convinced, thank you very much.
