The ’94 tour ended abruptly with this at the Paramount Theater, located inside NY’s Madison Square Garden. Area Ten Club members had preference for tickets. Remaining tickets were distributed to New York radio stations and were given away starting the Friday before (the show was on a Sunday) until late Saturday night. Winners then went to a separate location to pick up the tix before the show. Ed leads the crowd in a “fuck” chant before ‘Alone.’ A female fan, screaming “I love you, Eddie” is dealt with. “Aww, that’s sweet. I love you too,” Ed responds sarcastically. “You don’t love me. You love who you think I am and the image you have created in your mind. You can’t love me cause I’m already in love. Did you know my ten year anniversary with my girlfriend, Beth, is next month? That is the longest relationship of anyone in the band, unless you count Stone and Jeff.” ‘Dissident’s’ lyrics are changed to a spoken, “Escape is never the safest plan.” Mark Arm joins PJ for ‘Sonic Reducer.’ A very spiritual, intense, cathartic show with an entire night of pummeling beats and guitar solos, Ed howling and pulsating hair. It is unclear what direction PJ will take from this point. Ed references this and suggests going off and living in a cave with Beth.
