BC: Bonsoir. Thank you very much for coming. Hello to the people on the bridge. Hello to the people up there. They originally told us that we would actually be playing...with the plants. Guess that doesn't translate to French. We'd like to uh, we'd like to dedicate this song to Pakistan...since they decided to now start blowing up nuclear bombs as well. It's really nice to know that peace is at hand. Makes me feel nice and safe, so um, here's to Pakistan.
> Thru the Eyes of Ruby
BC: Thank you, thank you. So uh, this song we'd like to dedicate to you. No, not you, you. Like to dedicate this song to you, we appreciate your support very much and um, appreciate you for giving us a beautiful night.

(BC at 12:22: Thank you very much. On the piano, Mike the Cuddly Lion. On percussion left, Stephen the Ferocious Dragon. On ferocious dragon drums, Kenny Aronoff. On percussion far right, Daniel the Missile Launcher. My name is Jack, that’s Lucille Ball, and of course...is Jesus Christ. Thank you!)
Iha: Hello friends, you are breathers of light. And now we would like to play yet another song. We hope we rock you and we hope this has been a joyous moment in your life. And uh, let's go back to a certain year...nineteen...seventy...(high pitched) I can't hear you! 1979!
