Alt MCIS Intro
Disarm (Billy solo acoustic)
Space Oddity
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: Ooooak...land. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. How are you guys doing? One thumb up or two thumbs up? Okay, great, you’re just like my kids, two thumbs up. Thank you so much for coming out tonight, uh, we really appreciate it. We are here to rock for you. But, uh, we’re just like a third of the way, we’re just coasting here, now we can get into the real, real set. Uh, this is from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, it’s called Thirty-three.
Thirty-three (acoustic)
Vaudeville Interlude Film
(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.)
Blew Away
For Martha
BC: Thank you so kindly, thank you very much.
To Sheila

Tonight, Tonight
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: Oakland, California, thank you so much. Was that crazy? What just happened? It’s crazy to me when they brought up, let’s do Stairway to Heaven, heh heh. Thank you, thank you. Alright, quick introduction of the band. On vocals, keyboards, acoustic guitar, all the way from Melbourne, Australia, Ms. Katie, Kate, Katie Cole. Great segueway. And now, all the way from Manchester, England...his team is down, Manchester United...Mr. Jack Bates. Was that a sad bassline? We watched, we watched, uh, Manchester United today, I don’t know anything about it, I only [unintelligible] football, but it was very engaging and they got crushed. Okay, and now, from Detroit Rock City, Mr. Paul Stanley himself, Mr. Jeff Schroeder! (Jeff teases Detroit Rock City) I feel all good! This is Saturday ni-hite! Oakland! Okay, Jeff, what would Paul do? Oooooakland! We’re listening, just, uh, go on Youtube, title “Paul Stanley stage banter,” it’s awesome. On guitar, I’m James Iha from the [unintelligible]. Our suit is right. You’re no freakin’, freakin’ Geddy Lee. And now, from Illinois, on the drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. And now, on the vocals, lead guitar, hot guitar, Mr. William Patrick Corgan!
Cherub Rock
Vaudeville Interlude Film
(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 out 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!)

> 1979
Ava Adore
BC: (clears throat) Before we continue up here, as the Smashing Pumpkins, we’d like to congratulate you, coming from Chicago where we saw all those incredible titles with the Bulls. We’d like to say congratulations for gettin’ it done over here. James?
Iha: Yes.
BC: Did you realize that that Stephen Curry led team has won like eighteen championships already? It’s unbelievable.
Iha: Eighteen?
BC: They’re actually gonna abolish the rest of the league ‘cause they just, there’s no point, they’re just gonna keep giving them the title every year now.
Iha: That’s pretty awesome.
BC: And then when Draymond and Stephen just say no more of this, then they’ll just, they’ll just stop. So...good luck on ‘19 and ‘20. Back in Chicago, where our team is suffering, we like to dedicate this song to all suffering teams. This is a song called Try, Try, Try.
Try, Try, Try
The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Alright, alright, thank you so much, Oakland. You guys have been awesome. Thank-thank you so much for, uh, staying with us to the end. To this rocking end moments. Um, we really appreciate it and we are, we’re psyched. This is our last song. Now I gotta tune my guitar.
BC: Thank you so much for a great evening, thank you guys. We really appreciate you here in the Bay Area, you’re such great fans here. We appreciate everybody up top, all the way in the back, we love you, we appreciate you. Now, we’ve reached the end of the show. This is normally our last song and then we’d come off and we’d do an encore but today, I got food poisoning so I’ve been trying not to puke the whole show and I’d really not, I’d really like to not end up on Youtube puking all over.
Iha: That would be dee-sgusting.
BC: So I’m very proud, you lifted me tonight, you got me through the show.... And I don’t want to give you any more information like that, so then that’s, heh heh, this is our last song so thank you so much and I wanna say one last thing...‘cause I was thinking about it all night. In 1990 when the band was looking for a record deal, the three of us, way, way back., we had, we, uh, we got a lawyer in L.A., a fancy L.A. lawyer, right? And that person’s in the crowd tonight and if it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t be here, we wouldn’t own our own songs, she defended us at every step along the way, Jill, we love you, god bless you, Jill. Believe it or not, there are good people in the music business. Just like you, good people! So anyway, we bid you adieu, we’ll see you again soon hopefully, god bless everyone, thank you, and if you know this song, sing along.
