Band introduce themselves before the gig as "We're not a San Francisco band we're an Irish band! That's right and we love potatoes!"

Before Chinese Arithmetic Chuck says he wants to see Blake Carrington and complains he'd never seen this street on that show (Dynasty).

Before We Care A Lot, Chuck: "Could I... Is it possible to have any more vocals in the monitor? Cause I can't hear myself and I can't sing as it is. Just makes it worse."

Chuck changes "NY, SF and LAPD" to "NY, SF and Denver PD"

Before The Crab Song: "We stayed at the Broadway Hotel last night, this song is dedicated to the Broadway hotel, it's the Crab Song."
Chuck does a version of the spoken word part in the intro of The Crab Song.

After New Beginnings: "Thank you Denver it's been short, it's been sweet, but we've got to drive to Australia tomorrow so we've got to get out of here."

PA plays REM, "Begin the Begin" after they leave.
