notes: Ed is really sick throughout the show, which explains the lack of a preset solo (along with late arrival to the venue). He's constantly blowing his nose and sipping tea between songs. Very poor security at this venue (lots of drunk idiots down front that pushed their way to the front without having proper tickets) and crap being thrown on stage. 'Blitzkrieg Bop' is tagged on 'Daughter,' with a "hey, ho, let's vote" chant. A verse is omitted from 'MFC.' The uke was brought out for the acoustic set but not used. Boom doesn't make his appearance until the acoustic set, inviting a warm welcome from the crowd. Mike goes up by Boom for an extended jam on 'Crazy Mary.' During 'DTE,' Ed completely skips over the 'hallelujah' part leaving Jeff going up to the mic then looking surprised. After the song, Mike just shrugs his shoulders and laughs, while Jeff goes back to the mic to do his part that was skipped over. During 'Smile,' Stone puts on a plastic nose that somebody threw on stage, getting some good laughs from the guys. Tim Robbins comes out for 'The New World' and throws a bouquet of flowers to the crowd. 'Soon Forget,' 'Masters Of War,' 'Glorified G,' and 'Indifference' were on the setlist but not played.
