NOTES: A near full moon tonight and an outdoor venue. Before 'Given to Fly,' Ed tells the crowd to check it out and he notes, "It's nice to be here ... beautiful moon ... nice and hot ... a really good night for singing." There isn't a 'Daughter' tag--Ed sings "shades go down ... the moon is round ... shades go down." 'Rats' is a BIG surprise, introduced as the first time played with Matt C., [we haven't heard this since Buffalo '96] off the second album, doesn't get played much and "if I screw up the words, fuck you ... at least we're giving it a try." The improv leading to 'MFC' is much like the improv leading to 'Habit' at many of the Australian shows earlier this year. Later Ed says, "Is there a difference between a dreamer and someone who wishes for something? I think there is. I still haven't figured out which I am," leading to 'Wishlist.' Ed chokes on some of the 'Leatherman' lyrics so he sings "la, la" for a whole verse and makes fun of himself. During 'RVM,' the band is silouetted and different colors are cycled through on the backdrop, making a nice effect. Mike absolutely rules 'Black' every night. The stage is very wide at Virginia Beach and he runs all over it. Ed makes a crack about how they just found out there's a curfew but they'll play right up to it and then says that they also just learned that Stone's zipper was down during the first set but "no one got hurt." 'Porch' is outstanding with a shirtless Mike playing the flying V, fast breakdown with the tribal drums and Ed has the hand mirror out again. Other highlights: rocking 'Alive' and 'Sonic Reducer;' long 'Save it for Later' tag. Band was great; crowd was drunk.
