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: Los Angeles. City of lights, thank you so much. Thank you so much for coming out. Are you having a reasonable time? Awesome, awesome. So we’re just - we’re like the fourth way mark of the show, we’re just kinda coasting right into more rock. Uh, so we got jillions of more songs to go. Thank you so much for coming out, we really appreciate it. This is called Thirty-three.
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.)
BC: Thank you so much, thank you!
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
short lounge interlude (most is tape but Katie plays organ live)
> Stairway to Heaven
Iha: Thank you so much. Stairway to Heaven as done by the Smashing Pumpkins. That’s crazy, right? Cross it off the bucket list of things to do and see. Alright. An introduction of the band. To my left, from Melbourne, Australia, on keys, acoustic guitar, vocals, Ms. Katie Cole! Katie Cole. And now all the way from Manchester, England, on the bass (pronounced like the fish) guitar, Mr. Jack Bates. (Jack doodles for a second) I recognize that bass line. Heh heh. It’s a song we did once but who cares? No one cares. All the way from southern California, from Los Angeles, on the guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder! (Jeff plays a riff) (high pitched) Alright!! Los Angeles! (normal) Are you guys familiar with Kiss? Just go to Paul Stanley’s stage banter, it’s amazing. “If you didn’t come here for a good time, well, get the fuck out,” that’s what Paul Stanley says. I didn’t say that, Paul Stanley did. And now from Joliet, Illinois, on the motherfuckin’ drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin! From a northwest suburb, on guitar, it’s me, Mr. James Iha, thank you. On lead vocals, lead guitar, Mr. William Patrick Corgan!
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: Woooo! I’m ready for a hot toddy after that. What’s a hot toddy?
Iha: I think it’s, like, brandy that’s heated up.
BC: See, you know. You know what a hot toddy is.
Iha: You put lemon in it, if you have a cold, it’s supposed to be good for you.
BC: Friends, thank you so much for being with us tonight, night two! Let’s just put it this way, let’s just put it this way or am I wrong? The only other place we played two nights in all of America was our hometown in Chicago so thank you for doing us proud. We love this city. Jeff is from this city. James lives in this city. Jimmy has lived in the area, although does Temecula count? (crowd shouts “no”) Hahahahahaha. Come on, that’s a long drive I realize, but it’s Los Angeles area. Hey, wait wait wait, you guys got a fuckin’ airport in Burbank called Hollywood, okay? Let’s start there.
Iha: It’s Bob Hope.
BC: Everything’s fucking Hollywood out here, they’ll put Hollywood on fucking anything.
Iha: I thought it was Bob Hope Airport.
BC: No, it’s the - no, it’s the Bob Hope/Hollywood/Burbank Airport or some shit like that. What the fuck is that?
Iha: He’s synonymous with Hollywood. I had to throw it in there.
BC: Sorry. We’ll get back to the show now. This is a song from the Machina album called Try...Try...Try.
Try, Try, Try
The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Thank you so much, Los Angeles, thank you! We thank you for sticking with us to the end. We’ve spent so much time together, I feel like we’ve gone on vacation. We can talk about anything. But we’re not gonna do that, we’re gonna play one more last song. It’s a good one. Thanks.
BC: Los Angeles, thank you so much! Thank you! Fantastic two nights, we feel so blessed to be with you, thank you, we can’t thank you enough, thank you! We started this band 30 crazy years ago. We dreamed of coming to Los Angeles. Then we dreamed of running away. Then we dreamed of coming back. Anyway, please sing this last song if you know the words. We don’t speak again, please go home safe, have a fun night out on the town. We’re gonna go drink a bunch of hot toddies. That almost sounds like a harassment thing. Oh, this is the wrong town to talk about that shit. See, I can’t...(trails off laughing) Anyway, here we go. Ready? Sing along.
Iha: Thank you so much. You guys are the best, thank you. Have a good night, get home safe, thank you.
