Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
After 'Evacuation,' Ed says, "It's nice to be in North Carolina; it's been two days ... feels like years." He jokes about how the last song was written by Matt, and that drummers usually don't like the singer, hence the reason for it being so hard to sing. "... I wrote the lyric part, so ... maybe I just don't like myself." The 'Daughter' improv tag consists of modified 'It's OK' lyrics read from Ed's notebook. ("... I wish I could light the path that leads to a life of no mistakes ... and keep you from the damage done ... living out of safety, safety. I remember still the child in you, as if only yesterday. And it was easy to break through, but you ... had to go ... and change your ways ... and change your ways ... and hurt my face ... my life ... my legs ... my time.") In 'Wishlist,' Ed changes the lyrics to "15 million hands upraised in North Carolina." After forgetting two consecutive "I wish I was ..." lines, he says, "I'll get the next one!" Ed says, "This is gonna be another number that we haven't tried for quite a while. I'm gonna take a sip of wine for courage and give this a try," and he takes a swig from his wine bottle and they launch into 'In My Tree.' 'Rearviewmirror' is extended, powerful and awesome, with Mike including riffs from Van Halen's 'You Really Got Me.' Ed tosses his guitar 10-15 feet in the air and carefully catches it. After 'Light Years,' Ed requests that the houselights be turned on, and he points out a guy in the front who's been holding up a tape recorder for the whole show. Ed then tells him that the next song is a romantic song, and he'll need both hands so he can put his arm around his girlfriend, so why doesn't he put the tape recorder up on the stage. Ed takes the recorder, speaking into it (much like he did during several 98 shows) and places it next to his microphone, before launching into a FULL, complete version of 'Crazy Mary.' Mike tries to end it with Zep's 'Stairway to Heaven' solo, but it's cut off. He later mocks the guy for thinking that the band would give the recorder back, providing much comic relief and the recorder is returned before the first encore. ;) Mike inserts a riff from David Bowie's 'Ziggy Stardust' in 'SOL&T.' Ed breaks two strings during 'Breakerfall' and ends the song by ripping the other four off, seemingly close to smashing it! Before 'Soon Forget,' Ed is rambling about how he's not good at math, but he "... wants to 'thank you' and put absolute value around that." He also says that he hopes he can get through the song without fucking up. "Just don't clap or anything, OK?" But he still ends up messing up the song in exactly the same place he did in Bellingham (on the 'Light Years' b-side). A "full-on" show including Matt breaking a giant crash cymbal and Mike tossing out a big handful of Stone's picks with "Mike" written on the back with a black marker! A teenage boy in a wheelchair with an oxygen mask was brought to the back of the stage with his mother. Ed went over to him a few times and touched him and hugged the mom, gave him some things and Matt gave him some drumsticks - very moving.
