June 29, 1998 United Center – Chicago, IL

Show Notes

Very tight, the first half hour just BURNS, until ‘Dissident.’ ‘Corduroy’ is notable as the version appearing on the Live on Two Legs album. ‘Rearviewmirror’ has a cool jam and strobes at the climax. Ed closes a sweet ‘In Hiding’ with “that’s Stone’s song … this is Jeff’s,” leading to ‘Jeremy.” The ‘Daughter’ tag, ‘Ray of Light,’ is a Madonna song (“She’s got herself a universe, and she feels – like she just got home.”) Before playing ‘Nothingman,’ Ed states, “It’s not about anyone I know … it’s completely made up …” Before ‘Off He Goes,’ Ed takes a sip and claims he’s drinking Gatorade so that he can “be like Mike.” He talks about the places they have played in Chicago – Chicago Stadium, Soldier Field, United Center – and says, “The only one left is Wrigley Field. Of course it’ll be a day show … and we’ll play two.” Mike runs around the stage in huge circles throughout ‘Present Tense.’ When PJ returns for the encore, Matt starts drumming, and Stone sings a few lines of ‘Walkin’ on Sunshine’ by Katrina and the Waves. One of the longest, most powerful ‘Save it for Later’ tags follows ‘Better Man.’ Mike’s solo at the end of ‘Black’ is incredible. Jeff imitates Pete Townshend at the end of ‘Baba O’Riley,’ machine gunning the audience, as the place goes completely nuts! Ed tosses his red Gibson SG and smashes the headstock at the end of ‘Baba.’ Eddie wears a Bulls jersey, #3 (that says “Vedder” on the back) that he says Rodman gave him and he wasn’t there but he’d give him a tape of the show.
