October 31, 1999 Shoreline Ampitheater – Mountain View, CA

Show Notes

The band takes the stage with only Mike and Stone festively attired for Halloween (Mike in a silver Lone Ranger-type mask and Stone with a turkey hat.) Ed asks everyone to sit down: “We’ll be here a while, here’s a new song …”, and launches into the second brand-new song in two days, the incredible, bluesy ‘Nothing As It Seems’ (note: song titles courtesy of Matt Cameron). A slightly different ‘Daughter’ follows, very boppy; Ed uses his fist to create a megaphone effect at the end of the song but never gets to a tag. The band are much, much more comfortable and confident tonight, much eye contact with the audience, smiles from Ed, Jeff even looks up from the floor. During ‘Wishlist,’ instead of the “14 million hands upraised” line, Ed sings, “of 14 childrens’ hands upraised” and turns towards the Bridge students at the back. Ed looks up at the sky, probably looking for the moon, during the “Camaro” line. Mike takes all the solos during ‘Wishlist.’ Ed’s voice is just great. After ‘Better Man,’ Ed tells a story about “it’s really touching and incredible to be around all the – John, Pete and Roger from the Who…sharing stories — mostly listening to theirs… and they’d talk about Keith Moon, and it was almost like he was still around (Mike starts the ‘Pinball Wizard’ riff and Ed tosses a pick toward him) …it reminds us of how fragile life is,” and dedicates an incredibly beautiful ‘Off He Goes’ to Keith Moon. Ed miffs the lyrics to ‘Black’ and laughs it off, making a joke about it singing, “I know I taught her the wrong words…” During the “kids at play” line, he turns again to the Bridge students. Fucks up the lyrics one more time and laughs it off with, “It’s been a while!” Finally, Ed talks about how after four times performing at Bridge, some of the students have become friends, and dedicates ‘Last Kiss’ by special request for one student in particular, and sings the whole song to her with tears streaming down his face.
