Before Spirit: "Danke Amsterdam!"
Life A Gas has a "Neil Young" riff at the start, Chuck: "That's all the Neil Young I know"
Before R'n R: "We sure are darn happy to be here, we're having a heck of a good time, I feel like fornicating."

From Mike Keneally's notes: "Then, we went to the show, and the opening act was Cancel, and they were very not special. I should say that slowly, the opening act was Cancel. The name of the band was Cancel. Then, the headliner came on, which was Faith No More. Very, very weird, very interesting, and I thought quite good band, and scary, because they did the Nestles white chocolate theme song, and then they rocked it out towards the end. Then, they sang the last part of Stairway To Heaven, and then, later on in the show, they quoted the first part of Norwiegan Wood, and Scott and I were just aghast. Definitely. They were really funny, and they did War Pigs as the last part of their first encore. Really, very interesting group, and I bought their shirt because I was so impressed."
