Jesus, I / Mary Star of the Sea (Billy/Jeff acoustic)
BC: Thank you very much. Before you shout weird things, let me continue. So we’ve entered the portion of the show where we play kind of a condensed set of a particular album, in this case Siamese Dream. So the cool part for us is to play the songs kind of in the more raw - "raw", is that a good word, I don’t know - stripped down.... You know, like the grunge band, just stripped down. Unplugged. Heh.
Jeff: Yeah. Uh huh.
BC: And so you get a little more, a look inside the song written in the [unintelligible word], as we like to say. So please enjoy this uh, we call it the Siamese Suite.
Mayonaise (Billy/Jeff acoustic)
> Today
Disarm (Billy solo keyboard)
Sorrows in Blue
BC: Thank you very much, shhhh. ... I recently had a birthday. Nothing to cheer about have to take more rest. You gotta rest more. So a good, a good showbiz thing is you introduce the band to rest your.... Ms. Sierra Swan. Heh heh. Ms. Katie Cole. On the guitar, the Shredder, Jeff Schroeder. How long you been in the band now, 10 years? That’s a long time, right? Heh heh. A lot of stuff happens. And on the drums, Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin. ... [unintelligible]. Now the beautiful thing about a night like this is we get to play some different material than we would normally play, so we thank you so much for that, for supporting that. ‘Cause you know America right now is.... I don’t know what that is, but that’s what it feels like to me. So like to play a song for you now that I wrote with Mike Garson, who you might know played on a lot of David Bowie stuff, our good friend Mike. For a song called Stigmata [sic] which was eventually covered by Natalie Imbruglia. And the song is called Identify.
Stand Inside Your Love
BC: We’ve reached the end, thank you very much.
The Spaniards
[encore break]
> Amarinthe
BC: Thank you very much, god bless you.
