Banter[edit | edit source]

To Sheila
BC: Thank you. I'm glad it's such a sunny day today, we were so worried that the weather was gonna be bad and you were all gonna be cold, so it's really worked out that the sun is out today and it's nice and warm. I mean, who wants to see a show in the cold and you know, when it's cold out we can't play 'cause our fingers get all frozen, but thank god it's warm. Because of course if it was cold, then none of you would show up to the show and then it would be a bad show and....
Once Upon a Time
> Ava Adore
BC: Thank you. Hola, as they say in Spain.
Daphne Descends
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
Perfect (acoustic)
BC: Thank you so much. It's an honor to play for you tonight. We appreciate you coming and staying outside with us. Now, we know you know this next song. Because if you don't you should go home, that's - that’s just the way it is.
Tonight, Tonight (acoustic)
D’arcy: I hope you are a little bit warmer packed in there like that and thank you so much for standing out here and coming to the show. We wanted to play here because it's very beautiful and we asked god to make it a sunny day, but I guess he changed his mind, so thanks for coming anyway, we really appreciate it.
Stumbleine (acoustic)
> drum/percussion solo
> Bullet with Butterfly Wings
> Shame
BC: Thank you very much, Shh-tockholm.
D’arcy: I have to say, in the ten years - this is our tenth year together - of all the shows we have ever played, you win for the coldest show ever. You know, at home, no one would come. Thank you for staying.
For Martha
(BC at 12:15: God bless you, thank you, we love you, thank you.)
D’arcy: Thank you so much, goodnight.
[encore break]
Iha: Thanks a lot, you guys have been really great, thanks.
BC: This is the girl that lent me her scarf.
Girl: Hello! Hello, I am the luckiest one in this concert, maybe. [speaking Swedish]
BC: Uhh...thank you, heh.
1979 (w/extended outro after Aronoff forgets to end the song)
(BC towards end: You’re fired, Kenny! You’re fired. Grievous drummer error.)
Transmission / Let’s Dance / Help!
