Ed prefaces 'Growin' Up' by saying this was a song he used to play sitting on his bed (when he was first learning how to play) and also said Bruce wanted to play here but the place wasn't available for 167 nights in a row. He acknowledges the fan support and other stuff that's been on his mind the past few months. He says that anything that they've said or done throughout the tour came from opinion and that opinion is about caring ... caring for their country. That makes them feel like patriots. 'Growin' Up' is a tender, heartfelt solo version. 'Hunger Strike' is performed as a big surprise (except for those following soundchecks and setlist scans) and is performed admirably with Corin from Sleater-Kinney singing Chris Cornell's part.
