Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
> Where Boys Fear to Tread
> Zero
Iha: Alright! Start off the show with one of those technical difficulties. How's everyone doin’? Rockin’? Yes. We've always got problems so.... We’ll start out the show, something's always fucked up, heh. But we appreciate you coming, thanks, thanks a lot for coming out tonight. And now, we will rock.
Cherub Rock
BC: Hi, thanks a lot.
To Forgive
Tonight, Tonight
Planet of the Apes clip

Porcelina of the Vast Oceans
BC: Thanks a lot.
Iha: Are we too psychedelic for you? Have we spaced you out too much? No...I look not.
[encore break]
Iha: Thank you very much. To the stage, from Milwaukee, Jimmy Frog, special guest star. Ready?
Wichita Lineman (tease - Iha sings 1 verse + 1 chorus)
Iha: Ah, I'm sorry, there’s a horrible rendition of a Glen Campbell classic. Oh, here's a note for somebody about something weird.
1979 (with Jimmy Flemion)
BC: Jimmy and Dennis of Milwaukee's finest, the Frogs.
Iha: And I bet, I bet you don't see them much out in Wichita. Heh. ... And as usual, we have technical problems.
BC: So um...we thank you again for coming, we don't know when we'll be back, but um...maybe this is our last tour, James.
Iha: Oh, this is our very last show!
BC: Hope you've enjoyed it!
Iha: Hope you have. We're very [2-3 unintelligible words].
BC: We've decided to offend no more. We're already looking ahead to the year 2000, land of opportunity.
Iha: Peace be with you.
BC: And also with you, James.
Iha: Thank you.
X.Y.U. (abandoned almost immediately)
BC: Can we play this really nice song (trails off laughing)?
X.Y.U. (abandoned almost immediately)
BC: About hate. This song's about hate but I--I wrote it when I was angry.
