2003-07-17 Mexico City, Mexico

Ed speaks to the crowd in Spanish, reading from his notebook, including "Gracias por esperar" (thanks for waiting), leading to huge cheers. The crowd is extremely loud, sometimes nearly drowning out the band with singing. Ed has a Mexican flag across his back during 'Given To Fly.' 'Wishlist' brings out the lighters in the crowd (turning them on and off rhythmically) and has an extended jam plus a call and respond ("hey ho, let's go") session. The crowd just dominates 'Better Man,' leading Ed to invite them to sing along with a spirited 'Lukin' as well. Ed introduces the band en Español upon returning for the encore.
