Zero Interlude Film
(BC: Ladies, gentlemen, friends, lovers, beasts or fowl, welcome to the show. We are the illuminated, the illustrious, the ill-timed knock. (two snare drum hits) Ah yes, we are the fractured, the schisms, the rift and the rabble, the sleepy clown, the atomized downs, the dreams you stopped dreaming oh so long ago. Yes, all colors mixed and marred make up the black, as do all numbers fix up the zero, zed and null. So let’s go back to your beginnings, as I shall go back to mine. It won’t last, it’ll be quick, but then again, that’s why we’re here. No past, no future, no sun. So let’s blow on fading embers, to boast about kings near, forgotten and buried. Tis the end. Tis the end. Tis the end.)
> The Everlasting Gaze
Stand Inside Your Love
Iha: Oklahoma! How’s it going? Thanks so much for coming out, you guys are awesome. Last night - last night, we were haunted by ghosts in an unnamed hotel. Happens to NBA players, happens to rockers too. So, if there’s something strange, really strange, you know what it’s about. Thank you. I gotta say, we could talk all night though.
Vaudeville Interlude Film
(Mark McGrath: Well, hello there, neighbors. Are you enjoying the show thus far? Well, good, I am too, even though I’m not real. Now, if I could steal a moment of your time, I’d like to introduce somebody verrry special to you. He’s been a friend and a neighbor to each and every one of you. He’s been the voice you might hear in the stiiill of the night or a night dog straining against the moon. And, in fact, this young man has been with you almost every step along the way, on life’s long journey, sighing so ever soft. He’s been a lover, a fighter, but never a cad. A beacon, a searchlight piercing every impenetrable fog. And he’s here, just now, to sing for you, that golden chestnut we like to call “Blew Away.” So gather round, ‘cause here he is: the one, the only, Mr. Jaaaaames Iha.)

Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
Iha: How you guys doing? ... This next song is by the Dixie Chicks.
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: I know a lot of you were expecting Stairway to Heaven tonight so we had to do it.
BC: Hey James? If you mess up the lyrics at the end of Stairway to Heaven, does that mean you’re not gonna take the stairway to heaven but the escalator to hell?
Iha: I don’t know. How many of you people know the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven. Okay, you know more than me. It’s an awesome jam though, right? I bet you never expected us to rock that one out.
Whole Lotta Love (tease)
Iha: (screams) Alright, who wants to get up here and sing that? Okay. Sorry, I’m losing my mind in Oklahoma!
Vaudeville Interlude Film
(Mark McGrath: Well, wowie zowie, papa ooh maow maow. What a wang dang and doodle of a show. And, it ain’t over yet. Now I don’t know about you but this next tune is one of my faaaaaaves. Reminds me of driving down the old PCH, high out of my mind on ecstasy and I’m singing the chorus of the song you’re about to hear so hard and so on high, that one of my front teeth fell right out! Yup, plain out right there in the dashboard. Wow. That dickens (?) just, just so good, wasn’t it? I mean, here you have young wash masters rising up to start a musical and cultural revolution that was soon co-opted by the machine and driven asunder! Gee golly. But thankfully, what we got in return was just so much better. I mean, let’s face it, who doesn’t want perfection in their stars above? ‘Cause perfect people making perfect, sweet music is, well, it’s just, it’s just what a god wants for all of us! Whoo! Red light, stop, it’s rain. The air is cool and the sky is gray and the year? Well, it’s 1979!)

Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Thank you guys so much! Thank you so much, Oklahoma. [unintelligible] electric. Thank you for those ghosts that kept us up.
BC: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you. Friends, from the first row to the back row, we’re so appreciative of you, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.
BC: Thank you!
Iha: Thank you so much.
BC: I just wanna say one last thing before we play this last song. We don’t care where you care from, we don’t care what you look like, we don’t care who you love, we don’t care who you vote for, we love you, we’re so appreciative of you. 30 years, 30 years. Unbelievable, unbelievable.
Iha: Thank you.
BC: That a handsome man like this and a gent like this could end up in a band with a freak like me.
Iha: How the hell did that happen?
BC: And then we draw Jeff and Jack into our devil’s compact. On the bass, Mr. Jack Bates. On the keys, not currently seen, Ms. Katie Cole. On the lead guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder. On the lead drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. Let’s try that one more time, on the lead drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. And the other lead guitar, Mr. James Iha.
Iha: Thank you so much. On vocals, lead guitar, Mr. Billy Corgan and thank you so much, Oklahoma. You guys are super, super, super, super duper fans. Thank you so much.
Iha: On lead ukulele....
