(for about the 20th time in the same situation we get to say, ‘Hello Philadelphia’. Pretty nice place ya got here. You were probably with us when we tore down the Spectrum down. We mays as well tear this place down as well. Slowly, piece by piece. This next song is by Jeff Ament. I would like to dedicate it to Brendan O’Brien who is here tonight.”)
10. Pilate
11. Even Flow
12. Infallible
13. I Got Shit
14. Wishlist
(Ed relates an anecdote about putting a white powder on his finger nails to strengthen them tonight which made him think of living in an apartment when he was 15 or so and had a low rent drug dealer for room mate who would sell “Black Beauty” speed which Ed would crack open and ingest the powder inside. He then asks if there are any kids in the audience. He comments on how stupid he was to think he needed the speed to keep going and how he named his guitar “Black Beauty”. He says he doesn’t understand the whole rock star and drugs. Why would you need anything more when you are on stage playing with your best friends for an audience that feel like friends even you don’t actually know them. What else could you want? (this what else could you want relates to the outro improv lyrics of “wishlist”)

18. Let The Records Play
(“Here’s another one about the same goddamn thing”)

Encore Break 1
(Ed talks to audience behind stage. Notes that is many more times than the number of people who saw them in a club the first time they played in Philadelphia. Ed spots people in the upper level behind the stage with a “Gabba Gabba Hey” sign and says he would like them to be brought down to sit on the side of the stage. They deserve better seats. “That would solve one of the problems we have. Last time we were here we had 99 problems, now we are down to 98. Next time we can get to 96 tears.” He then talks about his friend Brian, who had been unjustly imprisoned and was recently freed. Brian lost a friend of his that was in the military. Ed talks about how he is glad the troops are starting to come home and that we need to properly take care of them.)
