    Most would say the MSG show where Breath made a triumphant return to the setlist.

    id have to say the melbourne show or MSG.
    Both were very memorable.

    HONORABLE MENTION: Indianapolis, Indiana---Deer Creek
    Long Road, Hail Hail, Brain of J, Last Exit, Given to Fly, Corduroy, MFC, (new Jeremy improv), Immortality, Even Flow, Nothingman, Rearviewmirror, Wishlist, In Hiding, Spin the Black Circle, Alive, Go
    enc 1: Better Man/(Save it for Later), Daughter, Do the Evolution, Leaving Here
    enc 2: Yellow Ledbetter
    notes: The first show of the East Leg of the 1998 US Tour finds the band in EXCELLENT energy and spirits. All the members are spotted sidestage rocking out to Iggy Pop's tremendous opening set, and it seems as though his energy inspired them to kick ass. Ed's hair is shorter, blacker and slicked back, and he greets the audience with, "Okay, fuckers, our turn" (making reference to Iggy's rants at the dead crowd for his set). 'MFC' is prefaced with, "If you ever wanna get out of town, expand your boundaries, the best way might not be a tractor... but if a tractor's all ya have, go for it." Ed sings an interesting improv, based on the structure of the new 'Jeremy,' with the lyrics being, "The President spoke in court today." 'Immortality' is a total Matt Cameron-based jam, so much so that Ed makes a point of giving him props at the end. Stone is absolutely on fire tonight, jumping, thrashing, at the front of the stage constantly. 'Nothingman' is dedicated to the lawn (Ed claiming that that's where he would have been at that show, if he hadn't found a way to sneak down front). During 'Alive,' Ed balances on Pete's shoulders to grab hands down front, and then runs to the left and right side to do the same thing, afterwards applauding the crowd: "Good job, Indy - good job tonight." Prior to the first encore, Ed acknowledges some of the signs in the audience requesting songs, as well as one reading "Ed Lewinsky" and then they play a brief clip of Clinton's speech from that afternoon, follow ed by Ed reading excerpts from it; at the end he comments, "I have one word to say - 'consensual'." 'Better Man' is dedicated in turn to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the tag has the melody of 'WMA,' but no words are sung. His parting words are, "Behave like rock stars - not like the President." Crowd was amazing and the band was really happy because of it. (On the written setlist but not played: Porch, Indifference, Present Tense, Off He Goes)

    9/22/96, 6/26/98, 8/17/98, 8/18/00, 8/20/00, 8/21/00, 4/18/03, 4/23/03, 6/22/03, 5/16/06, 8/5/07, 6/11/08, 6/12/08, 8/22/08(Ed Solo), 8/23/09, 5/6/10, 5/7/10, 7/19/2013, 10/1/2014, 4/26/2016, 8/20/2018, 9/4/2018

    Montreal 98 was an UNREAL show and I'd kill to have a soundboard. Still to this day it's the best crowd I have ever been a part of.


    9/16/98 MA was great too.

    I was at that show - I was absolutely FLOORED by RVM that night.

    I have a crappy boot from the cleveland show, and I would really love a better quality version. Anyone out there got one I could do a b&p or trade for?

    i was at that show too. 3rd row center. closest i've ever been to the stage with assigned seating. that was back when 10C determined seating partially based on how fast you mailed in your order form. i remember they broke out some songs that were considered more rare like immortality and footsteps and ended with baba. and the hail hail opener was kickass.

    another memorable show was the day before in pittsburgh where they broke out "no way" after saying, "no way" to requests of playing "no way." great moment...

    I'm kinda partial to the 6/30/98 show at the target center in Minneapolis.
    The band had not played Minnesota since 1992,when they played first avenue in march and then lollapalooza later that summer.
    It was frickin insane inside that building all night long.But when stone had a problem with his guitar,the crowd erupted into the loudest crowd I had ever heard in my life up to that point. I had not experienced a crowd that rabid at a concert before. You really had to be there to know what I mean.

    I've been to 3 other shows that were as close or the same for crazy fans and that was for 2003 shows. First was MSG 1 and 2 on July 8th & 9th 2003 and then alpine valley on June 21st 2003.

    But the 98 show was unbelievably loud,almost excruciatingly painful.
    Someone else who was there,please back me up!
