March 7, 1998 Thebarton Oval – Adelaide, AU

Show Notes

A splendid outdoor show, Ed drinking Coopers, a South Australian beer Throughout the show. Kicking versions of ‘Do the Evolution,’ ‘Even Flow’ and ‘I Got Shit.’ A cool ‘Daughter’ tag, singing, ” I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence …” Just before ‘Habit,’ Ed starts singing “Lemonade … Powerade … Adelaide,” and everyone cheers. After ‘Habit,’ Ed has a very tongue-in-cheek chat about Oasis: “So I just wanna state for the record that … ah … I don’t know if I’m speaking for everybody but … we love Liam Gallager. I mean honestly … I’ll tell you what. I was walking around last night and I ended up playing pool with a couple of you, you’re out there I know. Had a great time … had quite few of those things–Coopers (or) whatever they are–Onya, mate! And it was just going great. I was making friends left and right … then I was getting free beer, it was just quite a night. But then some asshole asked me for ah to take a picture … and I just headbutted the fucker right in the head … and it felt fucking great GREAT. It was awesome … I tell ya … it’s pretty cool this rock star thing … I like it a lot.” (Liam had recently been charged with headbutting a fan in Brisbane after the fan asked for a photo.) ‘Nothingman’ is a surprise, with Ed introducing it saying, “OK, we’re gonna try one that I don’t think we’ve tried yet on tour, so we’ll see what happens … you got the ears for it I think.” Before the second encore Ed comes out by himself and starts playing the drums. A cool lead-in to ‘Last Exit’ by Ed: “… you guys have been tough. I know because I … we’ve all been there, and it’s not easy to be in a crowd like this … and for you to go through this and be so good to one other and everyone has survived, and to listen to our music. It’s something we will take back with us … in our suit cases and various bags. You know when we first started the moon was right there. Now it’s over there. It’s good to know the world is still turning regardless of what us fucked up humans are doing to it. But tonight is an example of something good so anyways, thanks for sharing it with us and being part of it … it really makes us feel good … this is our Last Exit.” Again, everyone gives Mike the stage during his ‘Yellow Ledbetter’ solo. At the conclusion, Ed says, “All right, I’m buying drinks for everybody … see ya at the pub!” A great show, with PJ’s general level of merriment, happiness, interaction and musicianship. Still just a handful of Yield tunes on the setlist.
