* This was the first show of the Lightbulb Sun tour.
* This show marked the live premier of 'Lightbulb Sun,' 'Last Chance To Evacuate Planet Earth Before It Is Recycled,' 'Hatesong' and 'Shesmovedon.'
* The recording seems to be recorded at somewhat of a low volume.
* After 'Lightbulb Sun,' SW says, 'Come with us on a voyage of discovery tonight as we premier and muddle through many of the tracks from the new album for the first time.'
* Before 'Where We Would Be,' SW says, 'The song we're about to do, I kind of always thought this was a happy, up song, but I suppose it's a measure of how fucked-up I am emotionally that most people saw this as just as miserable as the rest of the album. This is called 'Where We Would Be.'
* SW and Maitland add a vocal to the very end of 'Where We Would Be' that's not on the album version and not regularly performed live.
* The concert is played in two sets, with 'Russia On Ice' ending set one.
* 'Shesmovedon' is played as it is on Lightbulb Sun with the vocal and guitar outro part. This part would soon be dropped from live performances as the song would end with SW's guitar solo.
* SW forgets the words during the start of the second verse of 'Pure Narcotic' and he just mumbles them.
* After 'A Smart Kid,' someone in the crowd yells out, 'Next time, you can turn that solo into a 30-minute one because it's fucking excellent.'
SW replies, 'Thank you very much, I'll suggest it to the rest of the band.'
The man then yells out, 'O.K., rest of the band, next time that solo needs to be about 30-minutes long, alright?'
* SW plays a somewhat different solo to 'Waiting.' This track then segues immediately into 'Signify.'
