Before Chinese Arithmetic Roddy plays the Rocky Theme.
There are technical difficulties after Chinese Arithmetic.
"Thank you land of Robin Hood - only just found out he didn't really give to the poor."
After R'n R Chuck thanks the crowd for being appreciated even though they had to come to someone else's country to do it. It took three years to get a club this full in the US.
Before The Crab Song: "This song is about masturbation and pitchforks"
We Care A Lot lyrics changed: "We Care A Lot about those clothes you're wearing boy they look real cool"
Before Sweet Dreams: "You probably won't get the joke, it's a commercial on US TV"
Before Why Do You Bother? the crowd calls for Death March: "Alright this is a fresh version of Death March, it's called Why Do You Bother"
