Living After Midnight (tease - Billy gradually starts playing the song while Iha talks and other band members join in)
Iha: (high pitched) Ow! Can I hear it one more time?! I’m gonna feel it all night! I’m in crazyland! And I want you to know! Woo! Come on! Come on! I can feel it...all night! [unintelligible singing] Livin’...come on, all you fuckin’ people! Livin’ After Midnight, sing it with me! (singing) Livin’... (speaking) I don’t know the rest of the song. [unintelligible mumbling]. I’m sorry, I don’t know the words to that song. (tease ends) Yes...we are so glad to be here. And we are so glad to be here ‘cause tonight is the last night of our world tour, I don’t know why I’m saying that but it’s the last night and I’d like to give a quick introduction to the whole band. On the piano, Mike Garson! He’s a fine man, a good man. Percussion directly behind me, Stephen Hodges. On drums, the man in the middle, Kenny Aronoff. To my far, far right, on percussion, Dan Morris! And uh, I feel like I’m giving a speech at the Academy Awards or something, but uh, we’d like to thank our crew and our tour managers, Gooch and Kelly, [unintelligible word] every day. And we’d like to thank you! And uh, I’d like to thank my mom and my high school teacher, I remember when I was growing up in college and I sprained my ankle.
