Alt MCIS Intro
Disarm (Billy solo acoustic)
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: Philly! Philadelphia, thank you, thank you so much. How are you? [unintelligible two word sentence] Uh, we’re really glad to be here and, uh, you guys are so great, thank you very much, we appreciate it.
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: Thank you.
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: Thank you so much, Philadelphia. As a young man playing guitar, I could’ve never imagined playing Stairway to Heaven in an arena. Uh, quick introduction. On the keys, guitars, vocals, she’s not onstage, Katie Cole. Katie Cole, she’s got CDs out front, check it out. On the bass, Mr. Jack Bates. He’s from England. On the guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder. Nice. On the motherfuckin’ drums, Jimmy Chamberlin! I am James Iha. On lead vocals, lead guitar, Mr. Billy Corgan. Yeaaahh!! Oh, sorry, I just lost my mind for a minute. Let’s get back to the set, it’s a really cool set we’ve worked out. We’re not going to go into that, that’s just for the practice room.
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!)
Radio Intro tape
BC: Whoo! Hot diggity dang, whoo! Uh, thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very kindly. We are the one, the only, the Smashing Pumpkins. Thank god there ain’t another. The world would split in two.
Iha: But what if in a parallel universe, there is another Smashing Pumpkins and it’s EDM Smashing Pumpkins? Think about that! (laughing) Sorry, go ahead with, with what you were saying.
BC: Just back away from the microphone, Mr. Iha, just back away...or somebody’s gonna get hurt. Anyway, we dedicate this song to you, thank you so much for coming tonight.
Try, Try, Try
The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Thank you. Thank you so much. This is our last song. I feel like we’ve spent so much time together, it’s like we’ve gone on vacation or something. Talk about anything you want. Congratulations on the Super Bowl. Heh heh. That’s good for Philly, right? I don’t know much else except Philly cheesesteaks and those are pretty good, so two good, two really good things. Alright, I’m getting off topic here. This is our last song.
BC: Friends, we’ve reached the end of the show. We want to thank you so much. All the way to the back, the top, everybody. God bless you, thank you so much. Thank you. We hope you’ve enjoyed the show. I know I speak for Larry, Jerry, Todd and Jackie and Sally in the back...heh heh, we’ve enjoyed ourselves. They’ve made a malcontent like me even feel happy.
Iha: Tough to do.
BC: Tough to do.
Iha: Tough to do. Thank you so much.
BC: On a personal note, it’s pretty cool to play right here under Dr. J’s flag.
Iha: Oh, that’s awesome. So they play baseball here?
BC: Dr. J was my favorite player growing up. And of course we all saw The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh. That was Dr. J’s movie. Has anyone seen The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh? Thank you, I don’t feel so alone.
Iha: We’re just going to bring up all this random stuff right at the end of the concert.
BC: Ha ha ha. Alright, one more song, one more song, hang with us, thank you.
Iha: Thanks so much. Have a good night. Drive home safe.
