2002-09-23 Chicago, IL

Originally this benefit was to feature Ed plus C-Average opening for The Who, but PJ (minus Stone, who had a prior commitment with Conservation International) opened. In a funny twist, a near life-sized cardboard cutout of Stone wearing a gold glittery jacket and holding Pete's Gibson is brought out on the stage. (Ed quips about Stone being very "one dimensional" tonight.) Boom, a native Hawaiian friend of Ed's (who plays on some of the forthcoming Riot Act tracks), fills in on keyboards. Jeff, in an obvious nod to the late John Entwistle, wears a skeleton t-shirt. Ed notes at one point during the show that Boom flew in from the islands just for this show.

Set: Last Kiss, Insignificance, Grievance, I Am Mine, Love Boat Captain, Green Disease, Not For You, Better Man, Leaving Here, Yellow Ledbetter
