2006-11-13 Melbourne, Australia

During the "Daughter" tag, Ed changes one of the lines in "Another Brick in the Wall, part II" to "President Bush, leave those kids alone". Ed makes fun of the Australian Prime Minister John Howard's close relationship with Bush, references Howard blaming the economic downturn on shortage of bananas, and referred to Howard as "Bush's banana" to laughs and cheers from the crowd. Eddie comes on after the 2nd encore break alone on stage for "Dead Man". During "Rockin' in the Free World", the crew tried to throw a tambourine for Eddie, but hit Stone in the head instead. During "Yellow Ledbetter", Ed spots a security guard trying to remove an audience member for smoking, and cuts off from the song to let the guy stay since it's the last song, and asks the guy to give him a cigarette. When the security guard pulled away, Ed went back into the second verse of YL and improv-ed this little episode into the lyrics, followed by a "Little Wing" tag, complete with full vocals. On the setlist but not played: "Parachutes" and "Know Your Rights".
