To Sheila
BC: (weird voice) Obrigado. (normal voice) Thank you, it is great to see your beautiful faces again. Thank you so much for coming to our concert. We send our love out to you, we hope you have a good time. This is yet another new song, this is called Once Upon a Time.
Once Upon a Time
> Ava Adore
BC: Thank you again. I just don't have it anymore. Most of the songs we're playing for you tonight are songs from our new album Adore, A-door-ray, A-door, A-door? So we - we know you haven't heard these songs yet...but they're good, I promise, heh. And um, because we love Portugal.... (large crowd cheer) Heh. (crowd chanting)
jam (band plays along with the chanting)
BC: Because we love you, we love your country so much, you're absolutely the best audiences in the world, we thank you for that. The reason I'm telling you this is not to kiss your ass because we're not about kissin’ ass, okay? Heh heh. The reason I'm telling you this is because we’ve - we've made the show a little longer tonight to play more songs than normal, so.... This is another new song called Daphne Descends.
Daphne Descends
Let Me Give the World to You
Perfect (acoustic)
BC: Thank you. Okay, so now we're going to play an old song. That's pretty good, you listened to nine new songs, thank you very much. Turn James up, man! Okay...if you don't know the words to this song, you're just not a fan, are you?
Tonight, Tonight (acoustic)
Zero (tease - 1.5 times through riff) (acoustic)
D’arcy: Obrigado. We're happy that you enjoyed that song so much but now it's time for another song you don't know. You guys are so wonderful for listening to all these songs. This is a really special show for us and that's kind of why it's smaller a little bit, because we're playing all new things and we just wanted people here who we knew would appreciate it, so thank you.
The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete (acoustic)
Stumbleine (acoustic)
drum/percussion solo
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
BC: Ready? You ready?
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
(BC over outro: Thank you. (high pitched) Oy, it's so hot! (normal) Alright Kenny, kill that shit. Thank you. Stop, stop it, thank you so much.)
BC: (Portuguese accent) Oy, it's so hot in here, oy. (normal voice) Uh, heh heh heh. If we're playing too long, it's only because we have so much love for you. So please uh, excuse our enthusiasm. We'd like to play one more song for you, if you'll just indulge us one more. (Portuguese accent) “Come on, play it, let's see if it is a good song, I'm not so sure this is a good song because the new songs are not as good as the old songs, which were once new songs because they weren't as good as the old songs before, but they're not as good but we're willing to sit here and listen, so play me a song!” (normal voice) Oh yeah, it's really quiet, shhh.
For Martha
BC: God bless you, thank you.
Iha: Thank you, thanks a lot.
BC: God bless you.
Iha: You guys rock, thanks.
BC: Obrigado, obrigado, obrigado obrigado obrigado, obrigado.
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you very much, you guys are rockin', you're rockin' me! We appreciate your enthusiasm, we get no other enthusiasm like this except in Portugal! And now we will play another sad song. Prepare for the spaceship.
Transmission / Help!
(D’arcy over very end: Obrigado, obrigado.)
