enc 3: Rockin' In The Free World, Yellow Ledbetter
notes: High energy show, ripping through the first four songs and Ed joking several times about how they would play as long as Bruce. Vacant security. Ed changes the lyrics of the second verse of 'Even Flow' relative to Bush and then forgets the following lyrics and blames it on Bush. Praise to Mike for the 'EF' solo and then Ed has Mike kick off '1/2 Full.' The first verse of 'Wishlist' is messed up, starting "I wish I was the singer ..." and he laughs it away to start over, screw up again and admit it at the end of the verse. The improv ending includes language about Ed wanting to be president and Cheney to be VP so Ed can shout "get the fuck out." Ed introduces Ben Gibbard from Death Cab to play a "Las song" ('Timeless Melody'), leaving the crowd a bit clueless. The acoustic set begins with Ed talking about how they will play some songs not heard often, romantic love songs and then they rip into 'Lukin.' Ed is still sick, sipping tea (and wine) and blowing his nose. During 'Black,' he walks to the side and takes Susan Sarandon's hand to dance. The improvs are just the band noodling/goofing around. 'DTE' includes "I'm the first man to poop my pants," and he demonstratively pulls up his pants. The 'SIFL' tag includes asking the crowd numerous times if they are going to vote followed by "don't let me downnnn!" 'I Believe In Miracles' is dedicated to Johnny Ramone since it would have been his birthday. During 'Alive' the house lights come on, to be turned off and turned back on for the final encore. Both opening bands plus Tim Robbins' son participate in 'RITFW.'
