2005-12-07 Monterray, Mexico

The night begins with Ed's hello, "Que onda, Monterrey?" a common way young people in Mexico greet each other. The Auditorio Coca Cola normally holds 20-40,000 capacity but the entire venue was not opened up, so the attendance was only 8-10,000, prompting Ed to start "Hail, Hail" off with the modified lyric "Looks like there's room for both of us." Ed welcomes the crowd in Spanish, saying "Hola Monterrey, como esta? Nosotros estamos contentos" which translates (roughly) to "Hello Monterrey, how are you? we're fine." He then switches to his native tongue, saying "Is it ok if I speak English? It's hard for me to speak Spanish when I'm drunk, you'd understand" and continues "But, you know, we've been a band for 15 years and it's very nice for us to be able to come to a place we've never been before."
