Asking “How have you been?” after ‘StBC,’ Ed then says, “I would speak more but my English is not very good.” Very shortly after ‘Better Man’ is started, Ed’s guitar strap breaks and the song abruptly stops. He notices that the straps says it was made in Zurich. The song is restarted. ‘Sometimes’ is introduced as, “This song is in between always and never.” After ‘Jeremy,’ the show is paused to try to understand something the crowd is saying. Ed asks, “Save the fucking drugs? You’re going to have to hold up your hand … one at a time, please. Oh, ‘State of Love and Trust.’ OK.” They go on to play ‘Off He Goes’ but play ‘SoL&T’ next, with Ed substituting the words “save the fucking drugs” during the final chorus. As the encore begins, Ed comments, “You think of it as being very, very cold up here, but you get a whole shitload of people in one room and you don’t even notice.” Then, “This song is not written for you,” leads in to ‘Not for You.’ ‘Leaving Here’ is started roughly and Ed notes it was “sorta shitty,” so they add ‘RitFW.’
