I just wanna rip the roof off this place." He get the crowd to yell three times, laughs and launches into 'Habit.' 'RVM' features the slow beginning. Toward the end of 'Alive,' Dennis Rodman takes the stage and , where Ed completes the song. Prior to the 'Noise of Carpet' outro, Ed utters the words, "black red yellow." After 'Blood,' Ed retrieves a shirt tossed onstage, saying "Hey look, plaid, grunge; it's purple."
