Portugal 1996!!

Back again with another show from the No Code tour; 1996! This is the first of a two show romp in Portugal and is hailed as "a very on show"! Hail, Hail to the lucky ones who got to witness it. Now here, for all to hear, in all it's glory in the 1996 bootleg section is the Cascais, Portugal show 11/24/1996! Download it and play it load!! Enjoy!
Thanks to Two Feet Thick for the Notes:

support act: The Fastbacks
pre-set: I Can't Explain, The Kids are Alright, My Generation, Young Man Blues (Not included in download)

notes: Ed (wearing a mask) plays three Who songs with Kurt and Mike from The Fastbacks, introduced as "The What." (This was actually their second appearance ... the first being the 11/5/96 Vera show.) Jeff (introduced as Ed's brother, "Willy What"), joins the group for 'Young Man Blues.' During The Fastbacks' set, Stone joins them for 'Mankind." Ed again does the fast speaking or nursery rhyme (whatever it is) like the Berlin show during 'Habit.' The crowd starts a very spirited Portugal chant, which PJ picks up on and turns into a cool jam. After 'Smile,' Ed acknowledges Stone for playing bass guitar, and thanks Stone's parents (who are at the show) for having Stone. During 'Porch,' Mike inserts a few of the Rolling Stones' 'Can You Hear Me Knocking' riffs into the jam, and Ed climbs the speakers and dives. The (excellent!) crowd goes wild and Ed emerges with his shirt ripped up in back. He pulls it off and tosses it to the crowd, drapes himself with a towel and that's it. A very on show!
