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: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Edmonton, how are you? What the hell, it’s the last show of our 40 show tour. Thank you so much for being here tonight, we appreciate it. We’ve been out rockin’ hard for 40 shows and this is the last one. We’ve almost lost our minds but we’ve haven’t...and we’re glad you’re here to be with us. This is a song from Mellon Collie, it’s called Thirty-three.

(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 very 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, thank you. That’s a - that’s a cover song. Not one of - you’re not gonna find it on one of our records as an original. You guys could scratch it off the bucket list: Smashing Pumpkins doing Stairway to Heaven. Totally cray-cray, right? Odd and it was unexpected. Thank you guys so much, thank you for stickin’ with us and rockin’ with us, we appreciate it, Edmonton. At this time, Edmonton, I’d like to introduce the band. All the way from Melbourne, Australia, on keys, guitar, vocals, Ms. Katie Cole. Katie Cole. Very nice singer, very nice singer. And now, keepin’ the low end down, all the way from Manchester, England, on the bass guitar, Mr. Jack Bates. (Jack plays a short bass line) Hahahaha. Nice. Nice. Some English metal. Ow! Who knows what I’m talkin’ about? I could just be talkin’ about anything. You get up on stage, wear a white suit, talk about health food and it sounds cool. Ow! Alright. All the way from Los Angeles, California, on the guitar, Mr. Jeff Schroeder!
Fly by Night (tease - Jeff plays a few seconds)
Iha: Fly by Night, my brother, Fly by Night. And now, from the Midwest, from the great state of Illinois, on the drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin!
Detroit Rock City (tease - Jeff plays a few seconds quietly)
Iha: Me, guitar, I’m James Iha, thank you. Having a hell of a good time in Edmonton. It’s so cold out here already, it’s like the summer everywhere else but it feels like the winter or the fall. Heh, what?
Guy in crowd: Win-ter! Win-ter!
Iha: Winter? This man’s screaming for winter, bring it on, he says. You guys are crazy. And now, the man you’ve been waiting for, the man of the moment, the man of the world, on vocals, guitar, Mr. William Patrick Corgan!

(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: Woo-ooh! Woo-woo-woo! Thank you very kindly. Like to dedicate this song to all the lovely ladies in the house. That includes you, Katie Cole.
Katie: Wow, jeez.
BC: Heh heh heh heh heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh. Wooo!! You know, Katie? I was driving around this lovely city today. You know and I get - you know, I’m a little old, I fick fick - forget where I am sometimes, I’m like, “Where am I?” And then I see a sign: “Deadmonton.” Heh heh, that’s what the sign said, it said “Deadmonton.”
BC: I was like, “Wow, that’s pretty goth.” That was pretty cool, I wanna live in Deadmonton. You want...? Are you moving up here? Heh heh heh. Heh heh, anyway, hope you’re having a good time. Back to the...is it misanthropy? That was pretty good, right? Back to the misanthropy.
Try, Try, Try
The Beginning is the End is the Beginning
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Thank you guys so much, thank you guys so much. Edmonton, you’re the best. Thanks for sticking with us ‘til the end of the rock. We’ve spent so much time together, it’s like, it’s like we’ve gone on vacation with each other. We can talk about anything. But we’re not, we’re not going to talk about everything. This is our last song and thank you guys so much.
(BC immediately after lyrics finish: Thank youuuuuuu!!)
Iha: Thank you everybody. Thank you Edmonton. You guys are great, you guys are the best, goodnight!
