Thru the Eyes of Ruby
BC: Hey! Thank you all for coming out a little early. It's nice to see everybody. It's nice to be back here in Miami (pronounces “Mi-jami”).
In the Arms of Sleep
Where Boys Fear to Tread
> Zero
BC: We got the blues, people. How is everybody? Hey, put on the lights for a second. Let us see all these beautiful faces. Where are you, hello! Put on the lights! Alright. We'd like to do a new song, this is called Ava Adore.
Ava Adore
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Thank you very much! Like to take a moment out to thank the Rolling Stones for having us play, good band. It’s very cool of them to ask us, we appreciate it very much. We hope you all enjoy the show. We'd like to send this song out about your destructive youth now to make you feel better about yourself.
(BC over ending: Nineteen chevy nine.)
Iha: Thank you.
BC: We'd like to bring out a couple of your very own South Florida freaks. I mean, these are no--they’re our friends, yeah, right. South Florida friends.
Iha: Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome to the stage, Twiggy Ramirez and Marilyn Manson! Let's have a hand. Marilyn Manson, Twiggy Ramirez. Guys? Where are you? We give you the beautiful people.
The Beautiful People (tease - about 4 notes of main riff)
Eye (with Marilyn Manson & Twiggy Ramirez)
BC: We'd like to do one more song for you. Thank you very much for being totally cool. To all the Rolling Stones fans, thank you for being nice. To all the Pumpkins fans, we love you. All five of you. We'd also like to thank our drummer Matt Walker for helping us out for this past year. Thank you Matt, we love you. This is a little song I wrote about the feeling that you get when you really are hungry. When you're really hungry, you know like in the middle of the night you wake up and you really want a Twinkie? That's what this song's about. I hope you can follow me, it's kinda deep, let's take a ride.
X.Y.U. (with Marilyn Manson & Twiggy Ramirez)
> Paranoid (tease)
(BC over riff: We are los Smashing Pumpkins! Good night! God bless you, thank you, goodnight.)
