Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Intro
The Aeroplane Flies High
> Jellybelly
Tonight, Tonight
BC: Hey everybody, how's it goin’? Welcome to the rock concert, thank you very much for coming. Even you crazy people way in the back there. We now would like to play you a song which you probably don't know or probably skip over every time you get to it on your CD, it's called Here Is No Why.
Here Is No Why
> Zero
Fuck You
Porcelina of the Vast Oceans / Rocket
Iha: Thank you. That was pretty psychedelic, huh? And now, ladies and gentlemen, we bring to the stage, a very special guest. All the way from Milwaukee, ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together, of The Frogs, Jimmy Frog! Yes, Jimmy is a uh, a roaming troubadour and he will lead us into this next song on to victory, so please, let’s dance and boogie at will.
1979 (with Jimmy Flemion)
(BC over big ending: Ladies and gentlemen, Jimmy Frog!)
BC: Why, thank you very much. (Iha begins doodling as Billy talks) Many people are wondering what the new direction of our band will be. We'd just like to give you a little taste of that right now, we like to call this Music From Our Roots, Music of the Mountains.
Thirty-three (acoustic)
Circus tape
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Iha: Thank you very much. We're glad everyone likes the big rock song. Is everyone enjoying themselves? We played a few space rockers but um, we're glad you're back with us. We're glad you're back with the rock. What are you yelling? Laguna? I’ve never been to Laguna Beach but I will be after this tour. Did anyone notice when Matt's bass drum blew up? We were supposed to have this big pyrotechnic explosion but the bass drum pedal just fell off, so we apologize, it's a big part of the show, this big dragon comes out and just flashes smoke happens, but um, it malfunctioned. So, any of you catch any of our next shows will be able to see the dragon with bass drum pyrotechnic but uh, we will continue on now and uh, just don't think of the dragon. Is there something more to be said? What else can we say to these fine people?
BC: You know, I fear I'm ordinary.
Iha: Why is that?
BC: ‘Cause I'm just like everyone.
Iha: This next song is called You People.
> Planet of the Apes clip
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
[encore break]
Iha: You guys have been very nice, very nice.
Bad Moon Rising (tease - half a verse + chorus by Iha)
> In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (tease)
Iha: Damn, hold on, you fuckin’ people, get up on your feet there, man. Come on, come on. Don’t fuck with this shit. Keep it movin’. Unh, on the 101 808 shake, Matt “Cosmo” Walker on the drums kickin’ it like you know he would, how you people feelin’? But we don’t care how you feel it, put your hands in the fuckin’ air, I don’t care who you are. Race, gender, creed, color, social politics, Republican, Democrat, let’s get it on, people, come on. (Matt solo starts) Now it’s your big drum break. (Matt solo ends, Billy solo starts) Yeah, fuck that shit up, come on, yeah, we got B.B. King again, fuck yeah. (screams) (screams) (Billy solo ends) Right in the pocket, Billy C on the guitar. Woo, oh yeah, how cool was that? Miss X-Files on the bass, D’arcy. What about it? (tease ends) Okay, [unintelligible word].
BC: Look at this.
Iha: “D’arcy, we love you.” That’s very cute.
BC; "D'arcy, we love you.”
Iha: Eric and uhhhh...
BC: Eric Blue?
Iha: ...Blue.
BC: Eric Blue.
Iha: And uh...
BC: Blue. Eric and....
Iha: They seem to be horseshoes.
BC: It might help if you spelled D'arcy right, though.
Iha: Well, ladies and gentlemen, things have turned crazy. We are now gonna get back to the music. Thank you. Don’t fear the reaper, evil rascal.
BC: Would you like to tell everyone where they're about to go?
Iha: To hell! Oh, [unintelligible word]....
BC: Thats H-E-double toothpicks to you, mister.
Iha: Alright, this next song is about uh...pain...[unintelligible word].
BC: When your parents, friends, fellow students, peers ask you where we took you, we took you to where you did not want to go.
Iha: Where angels fear to tread. Where David Duchovny doesn't dare go.
BC: Are you ready? That doesn't sound very ready to us.
[encore break]
BC: Thank you all very much. Goodbye to those of you who are leaving in the back, goodbye, have a good night. You're of course going to miss the best part of the show, but have a good time.
Iha: This--this is the point in the concert where we bring out--
BC: I think they have to go home and study for a test or something.
Iha: We're gonna bring out the inflatable pig now, so those of you leaving are missing the best part.
> Hummer (tease)
Cherub Rock
[encore break]
Silverfuck / Space Jam / Spiders

and i feel your winter
and i feel your rain
and i've failed your summer ways
and i feel no pain

and i gave my life away
and i feel you crawl
and i've failed so many summer days
and i feel no pain

i feel no pain
i feel no pain
i feel no pain
i feel no
suffice to say i feel no pain

she was my lover
and she was my angel
what i recovered of me
i put into a box and stuck it far underneath my bed

and no matter how far down i pushed that box
i could still hear her
no matter how far down i pushed that box
i could still hear her speak
and she spoke to me from a tree
and she said
you're a whore and you always were
my mother swore i shouldn't let you in the house
and i hate you and i always did
i just did a good job of faking it
and i dont even like your first record

so what does one say to such charges and allegations
how does one reply
they're only scarecrows

and thus begins another american tragedy
broke my rusty heart in two
broke my rusty heart in two
and three, and four, and sixteen, and one hundred and sixty four, and one thousand two hundred and seventeen pieces

and i didn't know what to say
so i said it all
i didn't know what to do
so i did it all
i chose all of the above

baby my baby
where are you now
baby my baby
she's lost
she's lost
she's lost
she's lost
she's lost
she's lost
she's lost
in the clouds

her sister made gold the ethers
cause we were together again
we'd always been lovers
because we couldn't be friends

no no no

fucking whore
fucking whore
fucking whore
fucking whore
fucking whore
fucking whore
she was a fucking whore


baby baby baby just where you been
daddy daddy daddy's got something to do here
mommy's not home she'll be late at work, no
daddy daddy daddy daddy waiting for you

you're gonna fuck it up
you're gonna bring me down
you're gonna suck me in
baby baby baby i've got something for you
daddy daddy daddy got something he wants to do
baby baby baby's gonna do it again
daddy daddy daddy's been living sick

you're gonna fuck me up
you're gonna bring me down
you're suck me in


i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember
i won't remember
you'll be long gone
long gone long gone
bye bye
bye bye
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you
i won't remember you

(BC at 23:33: We'd like to thank you one last time for stickin’ around to the very end. We appreciate your support and love and patience. Everybody have a good night, we are the Smashing Pumpkins, thank you.)
BC: Thanks, god bless you, thank you.
