1998-06-20 Minneapolis, MN

Ed dedicates the show to Frank Black after the first few songs. Right before 'Corduroy,' he says, "I'm very aware I'm standing where Charles is standing," (a reference to Frank Black whose real name is Charles Thompson). After the 'Noise of Carpet' tag on 'Daughter,' Ed does a good three minutes of chants similar to Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn with the band playing the closing 'Daughter' riff. Someone is holding up a sign after 'Wishlist' that says "Stone Stone Stone" on one side and something about Mankind on the other. Ed points at him and says, "This one's for you fucker ... Stone's gonna sing one." Stone makes a joking protest saying, "Oh, I couldn't," and they play 'Mankind.'
