A hot night on the waterfront with the band breezing through 'Can't Keep' to open, then full throttle with the Stone Gossard show. He is on fire, tearing through 'Brain of J,' 'Save You,' 'DTE' and 'STBC,' serving up solos and excellent guitar work. Ed banters about whether they are in Philly or New Jersey (eliciting cheers and boos from the crowd) and says where ever we are, it's hot! The City of Philadelphia's fireworks display is visible during 'Faithfull' and 'Wishlist.' The band doesn't seem to notice immediately, but Jeff says something to Ed, Ed notices and asks if the people on the lawn can see them. Suddenly, they deviate from the setlist and tear through 'RITFW' ("let's give you a little music for the fireworks") in the middle of the set while the fireworks are still continuing. The crowd loves this and Ed jokes at the end of the song that they would normally say "Thanks and good night" at this point.
