2005-09-19 Toronto, ON

With members of U2 in attendance, Ed thanks them for "opening" for them in Toronto (U2 played four nights in a row over the previous weekend). A snippet of U2's "A Sort Of Homecoming" was played before "Elderly Woman...". Ed said, "Speaking as a dirty greasy American" in Habit. "Daughter" is tagged with a verse from "W.M.A.," the "Hey, Hey, it's OK" from Sonic Youth's "Androgynous Mind," a snippet of U2's "Yahweh," and part of U2's "Bad" ("If I could, yes I would / If I could, I would / Let it go"), and a bit of a call-and-response with melodic "Hey ho, let's go"s. There was also a very short "Bad" teaser before "Habit", with Ed saying he thought "Bad" was best song he'd heard about addiction, before he mentioned that "Habit" was another song about addiction.
