Soma
Rocket
Quiet
Corgan: Hi. I'm sorry, it's my fault. Just flip it... Hi. How are you? I am fine, thanks. Welcome to the, uh, first show of our eternal stay. I'm glad you're here 'cause all the other shows are gonna suck. And we'll be too tired, so...
Disarm
Today
Geek U.S.A.
Snail
Cherub Rock
Corgan: Hi. What's wrong? What's the problem? Besides me, what's the problem? What's up with all you people up there?
Iha: They're just waitin' for the movie, man. You're a very civilized lot. Oh, vic - the victory sign? Is that what's...?
Corgan: Thanks for coming anyway, even if you're not having a good time. We don't have any new songs but we have these same old stupid ones. Here's a stupid one that I wrote between the first stupid album and the second stupid album. It's called Clown.
Drown
Hummer
I Am One
all I ever wanted was everything
all I ever wanted was everything
all I ever wanted was everything and all I got was nothing but shit
yeah, it don't read good on paper but it's real
but of course, what is real?
nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken
nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken
what you want is what you'll get and that's nothing
what you want is what you'll get and that's nothing
nothing means nothing

Corgan: Thanks for nothing.
[encore break]
Corgan: Thanks. I don't give a fuck if you're from America. We're in England now. Everywhere we go that's not America, there's always an American screaming, "I'm an American, I'm an American." When you come to America do you stand in a crowd and yell, "I'm English"? I never understand it.
Iha: Hey man, that's what I used to do at concerts. Is there something wrong with that?
Soothe
Corgan: Thanks for talking through my song. You won't be able to talk through this one 'cause you won't be able to hear. And I deliver this with the utmost of love.
Siva
