(BC during outro singalong: Sing it with us! Come on, sing it!! Ten thousand people here, come on!! One last time! Ow!)
> Ava Adore
(BC after Jimmy solo: Ow! Mr. Jimmy Chamberlin on the drums! Ow.)
BC: James, what I really wanna know is how you’re doin’.
Iha: I’m good, feelin’ good. We’ve been out here in Denver rockin’. We’ve got about a hundred more rock songs for you. After this acoustic jam.
BC: James, do you remember the first time we played Denver?
Iha: I do not. I do not.
BC: It was at a place called the Garage.
Iha: Oh yeah! The Garage.
BC: It’s in there. We were on stage playing...
Iha: Oh yeah.
BC: ...about ‘92?
Iha: Uh, I don’t remember that.
BC: Ish ‘91, ‘92? Good times if you remember, (laughing) if you don’t, I’m sorry. Bro. And there we were, about a hundred people...
Iha: Right.
BC: ...we were rockin’ out some Gish.
Iha: Right.
Siva (acoustic) (tease)
BC: And you were standing right where you’re standing tonight.
Iha: Yeah?
BC: And the door opened right there.
Iha: Then what happened?
BC: And in walked Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro.
Iha: Did that happen?
BC: It did happen, they were here on tour for Lollapalooza and they came to see us play.
Iha: That was very nice of them. And uh, we’d like to thank those guys for playing tonight.
BC: Beautiful show.
Iha: Beautiful show, like to thank Poppy as well.
BC: Heh heh. So now do you remember?
Iha: I’ve just gone along with this, but...yes, we’d like to thank Jane's Addiction also, thank you.
BC: Bro, if you just smoke some of the sacred herb, it’ll all come back to you in a beautiful Technicolor dream.
Guy in crowd: Starla!
BC: Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh hahahahaha. Listen, we love playing for you so much, that’s all I can say. 34 years of this band. Sorta, on and off. Mostly on! It’s like a beautiful dream, it just flowed by like a beautiful boat. This is my favorite part of the show because I get to say not only thank you, but dedicate this next song to you, it’s a little song we like to call Tonight, Tonight.
Tonight, Tonight (Billy/Iha acoustic)
Stand Inside Your Love
I of the Mourning
Iha: [cuts in] ...introduce the band. On backing vocals, angelic vocals, Ms. Katie Cole. Katie Cole. And to my right, maybe to your left, all the way from Manchester, England, Mr. Jack Bates. Jack Bates. From Hollywood, California...(looks towards Jeff’s spot on stage, but Jeff is off stage) somewhere...(laughing) he’s –- let’s go to the drums. On the drums, Mr. Jimmyyyyy Chamberlin. What do you guys wanna talk about? You guys wanna hear anything? You hear some Aerosmith or something? Sometimes the show is just finely tuned and other times you’re just standing up here with a smoke machine. Lead vocals, lead guitar, Mr. Billy Corgan. Don’t worry, I...
BC: James--
Iha: ...I haven’t forgotten Jeff, I’m just waiting for him to reappear.
BC: James.
Iha: Yes?
BC: We’re so high that Jeff’s amp has blown up.
Iha: Oh shit. I guess we were just rockin’ too much. What do you guys want--
BC: James, my suggestion...
Iha: Yeah, what do you guys wanna hear?
BC: suggestion.... What key are we in? Heh heh heh.
Iha: What?
BC: (laughing) What key are we in? [cuts]
(Rhinoceros begins)
BC: It’s the wrong key but we can do it.
BC: Now the only problem is you have to do the int -– band introductions all over again.
Iha: From Hollywood, California, Mr. Jeff Schroeder.
