Stone is spotted during Rancid’s set from side stage; he appears to know all the lyrics. The lead-in music is ‘Aye Davanita’ again. It is a hot, humid night and Ed jokes about how the humidity is fucking up his hair (he has a serious ‘fro thing going on). The improv leading to ‘Habit’ (sounding much like the 2/20/98 Maui improv musically), includes the lyrics “dropped three times.” Instead of a “speaking as …” line, Ed plays a slow, distinctive guitar riff. Before ‘In Hiding,’ he comments how the next song has a chorus he’ll need help with from the crowd and how he has trouble remembering … it “must be that pot I smoked last night.” During the ‘RVM’ solo, Ed strikes a pose with one arm to the right while he is looking left, and he’s totally still, not moving, but his sweat is pouring down. More effects on the backdrop: clouds on ‘GTF;’ water on ‘Immortality;’ lightning on ‘Better Man.’ During the ‘Porch’ jam, Ed starts singing “last dance … last chance.” (Donna Summer anyone?) The ‘Angie’ snippet is a surprise, seeming as if the intent is to play the entire song but they abandon it after Mike and Ed can’t quite get it together after the first few notes. Ed tosses the microphone above the scaffolding during ‘Alive’ (he doesn’t climb the cord), and it isn’t retrieved but remains looped into the final encore. Before ‘Baba,’ Ed thanks Rancid and challenges them to play a Who song. Rather than tossing the tambourine into the crowd during ‘Baba,’ he throws it frisbee-style at the backdrop, and he joins in on guitar for a rousing ending. A rocking show with the band having fun, despite the heat. (On the setlist but not played: ‘Black,’ ‘Go’ and ‘Nothingman.’)
