Banter[edit | edit source]

Zowie (piano)
The Spaniards
Aeronaut (piano)
BC: Thank you very much, thank you.
The Long Goodbye
Half-Life of an Autodidact
BC: Hot damn.
BC: Thanks. Thank you very much, thank you. Some nights, the hat coming off gets a cheer, which is kind of interesting. Not sure why. It’s sort of a sexual reveal or something.
BC: Thank you kindly. Here’s another sad song.
Mandarynne (piano)
BC: Thank you very much, thank you. Thank you very much. So for those of you in the know, those of you in the know, I’m gonna play one more song and then we’ll take a 20 minute break. And then, I’m gonna play a set tonight that I haven’t played on the entire tour. You cheer now.... But uh, as an experiment and I think it’s a good experiment, we’re gonna take a chronological walk through the five Smashing Pumpkins albums. So you may recognize a few songs and of course, there may be a few that your parents played you when you were going to bed.
Lady in crowd: Thank you!
BC: Thank you. So one more song and then we’ll take a little bit of a zen break.
If I Were a Carpenter
[set break]
Jesus is the Sun
BC: Thank you! I was doing a lot of drugs when I wrote that so I really appreciate it. (dumb guy voice) "Maybe you should go back on the drugs." (normal) I’ve heard it all.
Purr Snickety
BC: Ah!
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
In the Arms of Sleep
BC: Thank you very much, thank you. Actually, somebody told me today that um, today is the 25th anniversary - 20 something? 22nd? Yeah. Right? Today is the day that Mellon Collie went number one, so thank you very much. 22 years ago.
BC: Thank you.
Lady in crowd: Thank you, Billy!
BC: Thank you.
BC: Thank you very much, thank you.
Guy in crowd: Luna!
BC: Um, you’re in the wrong order, okay, buddy. I know you took a lot of drugs too but we’re about 1997 right about now. (people start yelling for songs from that period and other people shush them) Thank you.
Tear (abandoned after 7 notes)
BC: Is this okay?
Tear (abandoned after 7 notes again)
BC: You know I’m big on social approval.
Tear (piano)
(BC after twice through main “riff”: One can only wonder what I would’ve done if I didn’t care what the people think.)
BC: Thank you, thank you. [unintelligible word or two.] Lot of cocaine. Hahahahaha. Wow. Hahahahaha. Ah, jolly good. And now we’re in the Machina phase. For those that were there.
Guy in crowd: Still awesome!
BC: Some disagree but.... (plays first chord of Wound)
Other guy in crowd: Fuck ‘em!
BC: Hahahahaha. These days you can’t touch anyone without consent.
Wound (abandoned after Billy gets the melody wrong on first lyric)
BC: Why can’t I fuck this fuckin’.... (practices first word once) There we go. It’s been a while.
With Every Light
Glass and the Ghost Children
[encore break]
The End of the World
BC: Alright, thank you very much, we’ve reached the end of the road. Literally and figuratively. Thank you so much for being here, I hope you enjoyed the show. It was interesting, it was interesting.
Let Me Give the World to You
