After ‘Daughter,’ Eric brings out a ping pong paddle, placing it on Ed’s amp and Jeff tosses a guitar pick and Ed hits it into the crowd … in honor of Mark McGwire breaking the home run record (it happened while they were performing ‘Daughter’). ‘Wishlist’ lyrics are modified to, “I wish I was as fortunate as New Jersey” and “I wish I was the verb to trust and never let me down.” ‘SoL&T’ is introduced as “a song about being faithful.” After ‘Better Man’: “This is the last song of the trilogy.” When the band returns for the encore, hundreds of “BREATH” signs are held up by the crowd and the band laughs their asses off! Ed says, “That’s pretty impressive, but it’s not gonna do you a damn bit of good.” Later (in reference to ‘Elderly Woman’), he says, “This song has the word ‘breath’ in it if it helps at all.” ! During ‘Porch,’ Ed walks along the side of the stage and drops down into the crowd. When they return for the second encore, Ed and Stone are talking and talking, as if they are deciding on a song, and Mike begins ‘Yellow Ledbetter,’ pretty much making the decision.
