Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
The Aeroplane Flies High
BC: Good evening. How’s everybody doing?
Iha: Welcome. What does that banner say? I can’t even read it.
BC: It says “Please play a Stone Temple Pilots song.”
Iha: Is that what that says? Jeez, I gotta get some contacts. We do know a Bush song, do you wanna hear that? ... [unintelligible].
> Fuck You
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Rocket
Iha: Thanks, thanks a lot. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a special guest for the stage tonight. A good friend of ours with newly shorn hair, would you put your hands together, ladies and gentlemen, of the Frogs, Jimmy Frog! Jimmy, any words of hope for these people? Words of hope?
Jimmy Frog: I’m gonna send this next song out to all the people of New Haven. Peace!
Iha: Okay, so let’s, uh, let’s dance, okay?
1979 (with Jimmy Flemion)
(BC over ending: Ladies and gentlemen, we don’t drive him anymore.
Jimmy Frog: I won’t drive him anymore!
Iha: Woo! Woo. You never know what’s gonna happen when Jimmy Frog gets onstage. Wreaker of havoc, funny man 'til the end, Jimmy Frog. Uh, Valjean. Valjean, there’s something wrong with my stuff.
BC: Thank you, we’re glad that you enjoyed that. (Billy and James noodling for a moment) I normally don’t do this but, uh, there’s a guy down here who keeps shouting “Landslide.” I have to tell you that we normally don’t do Landslide. However, we have been known on occasion to do Landslide. But the fact that this guy’s been shouting “Landslide” 500 times throughout the entire concert pretty much ensures that I will never play Landslide for him or ever again. So...just wanted to tell you that so you can stop shouting “Landslide.” Besides that, I’ll play any other songs you wanna hear.
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Thank you.
> Planet of the Apes clip
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
Iha: Thanks a lot. You cats have been cool. How is everyone out here? Feelin’ great? Feelin’--feelin’ kinda groovy? We still have the mind and body to rock hard, yes?
Iha: Are you still ready to rock? Come on, you fucking people, come on! Yeah. [unintelligible] (screams) (screams) (screams) (tease ends) Thank you. That’s our newest song.
Iha: Thank you. We’re just going to play snippets of songs now from our entire catalog.
Iha: 1991. Our first single on Sub Pop Records, Tristessa. Before there was grunge.
Iha: 1993, the year of angst and turmoil, there was Soma from Siamese Dream.
> The Last Song (tease)
Iha: And now, from the box set.
> Silverfuck / Space Jam
BC: Thank you, good night.
