That’s the Way
Glass and the Ghost Children
Bullet with Butterfly Wings
In My Body
BC: Thank you, San Fran-cisco. Thank you very much, we hope you’re having a good time. Not something you normally associate with the Smashing Pumpkins, a good time. Heh heh heh.
Guy in crowd: Yeaaah!
BC: Hey man.... Heh heh. (every time Billy says “a joke” after here, including later in the show, he makes air quotes) That was a joke, a joke. A joke. Every time I say something, then I have to qualify that it’s a joke, ‘cause then...gets too serious. That was a joke too, that one too was a joke. I’m happy to be here, that was a joke. And uh, heh heh, that was a joke too, heh. My name is Billy, that’s a joke. I’m still angry that they named me Billy.
Lady in crowd: William!
BC: Well, William technically, thank you, she was there. She held me when I was a babe.
Guy in crowd: Ginger!
BC: No, I don’t know what the fuck that is. That too was a joke, that was a joke. Yes, it’s freeform poetry moment, go ahead. That was a joke. Like to play a song from the Zeitgeist collection. This is one you won’t find on the red version, it’s on one of those other ones.
Guy in crowd: Death From Above!
BC: Thank you. Death From Above.
Death From Above (Billy w/Lisa)
If All Goes Wrong (Billy solo acoustic)
Rotten Apples (Billy acoustic w/Lisa)
Guy in crowd: Aeroplane!
BC: Ah, I’m gettin’ old, I can’t remember the lyric. Actually, I’m not sure I know the lyrics to this one, but I’m gonna do it anyway. (crowd cheers) You cheer now...later you’ll boo me, I know it, it’s happened before.
The Crying Tree of Mercury (Billy solo acoustic)
With Every Light (acoustic)
Heavy Metal Machine / White Rabbit
Guy in crowd: Spiteface!
BC: That’s for you, heh, ‘88 fans. 1988. Alright, well, I dedicate this song to the angry young man. Someday those Birkenstocks will wear out and uh, you’ll come out over the other side. With his boot wearing misanthropes. Uh, anyway, yes, I wrote this song on a uh...
Guy in crowd: Fuck you!
BC: ...a blustery, yes, thank you, uh.... Obviously a Hillary Rodham Clinton supporter, um...uh...uh, heh heh heh heh, that was a joke. Heh heh heh. I’m sorry, you just keep yelling, I don’t know what you want. Is there a serious problem or you’re just a disgruntled fan? Because if you’re a disgruntled fan, that’s of course nothing new. Okay. Hey, I was trying to tell a little story, it’s very moving and uh, I’ve actually never told it before, but uh, now the moment has passed.
Zeitgeist (Billy/Jimmy acoustic)
BC: Like to play a new song if that’s okay.
No Surrender (acoustic)
BC: [cuts in] He’s back in the corner, no, he’s-–when we play, we can see Jerry sort of smiling at us. When we’re a little down and things aren’t going well, we just...look at Jerry. Jerry carries us through, thank you Jerry. Jeff, this is where you do your Jerry Garcia solo song. (Jeff plays a few out-of-tune chords) I don’t know that one! You don’t know, uh...Truckin’ or...?, heh heh. (Jeff gives a thumbs down) You don’t like the Grateful Dead?! (Jeff gives another thumbs down) Oh, man! (crowd boos) Haha! I like the Grateful Dead. I saw the Dead when I was 14. I was doing the interpretive dance. (he demonstrates) ‘Course, I had long hair. It was amazing, Jerry actually pointed at me and said “You” and I felt like he was passing the torch. “You.” And then, like, doves flew out of his beard. It was amazing! It was amazing, heh heh heh heh. I can’t believe you don’t like the Dead, man!
Jeff: No, no, no.
BC: You love the Dead?
BC: Now you love the Dead. You’re afraid they’re gonna beat you–-like, a band of hippies is gonna kick your ass outside the venue.
Jeff: I don’t think they have [unintelligible].
BC: Are you backpedaling or are you seriously...?
Jeff: Jimmy got me into them.
BC: Hahahaha! What’s the big jam, the Dark...?
Several people in crowd: Dark Star!
BC: Dark Star? Nah. I took acid to that once, it didn’t do anything for me. I-–seriously-–I had like some boot version, like 40 minutes of the drums, just didn’t work. That’s the end of the show, thank you. [cuts]
