BC: Thank you very much, thank you. We have reached the end of the concert, thank you so much for being with us tonight. Did you have a good time? That’s not very convincing but...did you have a good time? ...
BC: So to the old school Smashing Pumpkins fans, thank you for sticking with our band, 31 years.
Iha: Thank you guys.
BC: 31 years.
Iha: It’s a long time.
BC: Heh heh heh heh. And to the new fans, thank you for giving us a chance. The kids, they’re into all sorts of stuff these days.
BC: Trap. Mumble rap.
BC: Pop! How many people have seen us before?
Iha: They’re drunk, they don’t remember. They - they thought they saw Alice in Chains.
BC: One small note, a personal note. I’ve spoken before about how my great grandmother was born here...in Belgium. And since I was last here, I found the ship manifest that showed her coming into America when she was 17 years old with her husband, my great grandfather, who was also born here.
BC: But what I didn’t know...
BC: ...and I didn’t know until recently...
BC: ...that my grandfather - my great grandfather - was one of 26 children.
Iha: Ha! That’s a tremendous....
BC: 26. And six of the children immigrated to America.
Iha: 26 kids.
BC: To Illinois.
Iha: How many people have 26 kids?
BC: They like to fuck here, James, what can I say? Is that too blue? They like to eff, is that better? They like to eff in Belgium? You like to eff? And one last thing. I recently had a daughter. And her name is Philomena and I named her after my great...great grandmother, who was born here in 1864.
BC: So thank you for being part of my life.
Iha: What do you guys wanna talk about? Any topic. Alright, I know, we should keep rockin’.
BC: I got it, don’t talk. This is our last song, please sing along if you know the words, god bless you, we love you, we appreciate you, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.
BC: Thank you.
BC: Oh yeah!
BC: Ow! As we mentioned before, it’s Jimmy Chamberlin’s birthday. And as a special present to you, he’s now gonna do a 25 minute drum solo. Go!
Iha: He’s a sweet hip kinda guy.
BC: Come on, you wanna hear a 25 minute drum solo? Alright, a 25 minute guitar solo? (Billy doodles)
Iha: Oh yeah.
BC: Just come over here. Jimmy, come up.
BC: Let’s sing a proper Happy Birthday, ready?
BC: (singing) ...and many more.
(Jeff is doodling quietly)
Iha: Little Van Halen, Jeff? There’s Jeff. Very nice, very nice. And now, we’re gonna burn it to the ground. That’s a sharp knife!
BC: Doug, cutting the cake on stage, I don’t understand this.
Iha: By the way, guys, this is Doug Goodman.
BC: Doug Goodman.
Iha: There he goes. Merry Christmas, everyone. Ah. Happy Halloween. All the best tidings to you. Okay! We’re gonna rock one more time.
