01. Go (album intro)
02. Do The Evolution
03. Mind Your Manners
(Ed greets and toasts the audience. He asks if they are ready to make a night of it? “We might as well. We got the day off tomorrow. We didn’t want it but we got thanks to Toronto Raptors. They better fucking win.” Ed reminds the audience of how many shows they have played in Toronto and says the first time they played it was seven songs. He then gets the audience to cheer as he auctions adding more songs)

BINAURAL (in Sequence)
04. Breakerfall
05. God’s Dice

(Ed tells a story about the fire alarm going off in their hotel today. The internal debate about how long you wait to find out if it is a false alarm or if you are going to have to put on shorts and go down stairs. His mood gets serious as he says It is a very different situation for the people in Fort McMurray who are in the middle of the terrible fire. He dedicates the next song to the people of Alberta and the first responders helping them.)
06. Evacuation
(The next song is for a person that Ed describes as both family and friend to the band. The type of loss that is profound and the sadness is so deep that it makes you want to be a better person. If any one in the audience has someone like that in their life they want to share the song with them.)

07. Light Years
08. Nothing As It Seems
(Ed introduces Stone as the author of the next song. Ed describes how much he loves the song and how it is such a great love song. He imagined making a video for it that would look like a Japanese karaoke video. While he was surprised the song wasn’t as big on the radio as he would have thought and wished it is just a beautiful song that Ed loves.)
09. Thin Air
(during Thin Air Ed goes to the barricade to sing with the audience. One man in a Seattle Mariners jersey gets on the mic and duets with Ed. When the song is done Ed learns the man’s name and says “JP, I will meet you after the show you handsome man.”)

10. Insignificance
11. Of The Girl
12. Grievance
13. Rival
(The next song starts but Ed realizes he has made a mistake and waves the band to a stop. “you know the thing about records is sometimes they skip and you have to start the song over. Let me clean the needle off.” They restart the song)

14. Sleight Of Hand

(Ed describes the next song as not being written about a specific person but a general theory about despicable rich fucks who behave in a monstrous fashion. He has come to realize that the song fits Donald Trump perfectly. He praises the Canadians for electing their new Prime Minister who will be focusing on important things like climate change. He suggest they might like to build a wall themselves and muses about living in Canada and says in honor of Rush he could change his name to Geddy Vedder.)
15. Soon Forget
16. Parting Ways
17. Corduroy
18. Once
19. Rearviewmirror

Encore Break One

(Ed checks with the audience to make sure they are all good. He reminisces about playing outside by the ferris wheel and riding the wheel with Chrissie Hynde. Seeing Soundgarden and thinking that drummer is fucking incredible. This gets Matt a much deserved ovation. Ed continues noting that they are going to be sending money from these shows to Alberta and Edmonton. He says he saw something in the paper saying that what is going on in Alberta isn’t at least part due to climate change. Ed says he is going to stick to the science on that one. He asks the audience to hold up their phones with the lights on to light up the place. He wants to experience the healing powers of music. The Toronto audience complies en masse.)

20. Imagine-(Lennon) Full band version
(This one was written a long long time ago in a galaxy far away outside Jeff’s apartment. It isn’t about the time of year so much as about the temperature when we were out walking around. This is about being out in the cold.)
21. Let Me Sleep

(this is for a great couple I met today Randy (Robin?) and Jo)
22. Comfortably Numb-(Gilmour, Waters)
23. Even Flow (Ed tosses the mic to the audience but it either falls short or they drop it. They sing a couple lines and toss the mic back. This time it definitely falls short. Ed reels the mic in for the end of the song.)
(the next song if for Howard Zinn. Our greatest historian and positivist.)
24. Down
25. Better Man/Save It For Later-(Charley, Cox, Morton, Steele, Wakeling) (Stone goes over to Jeff’s side of the stage and rocks out.)
26. Porch

Encore Break Two
(Ed praises the audience for their energy and says if the crowd tomorrow is as good the Raptors should go all the way. Ed elicits a few boos when he professes to be a Dwyane Wade fan. He says “yeah, We The North, I saw that sign but we are from the Northwest. He goes on to say that they need to play a song for the back of the venue because they are for equal opportunity.)

27. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town (played 360)
28. Given To Fly
(Ed asks for a light on the audience. Ed notes that Jeff has a three piece band called RNDM (Random) that is just great. Ed wants to point out the guy in the audience that is wearing one of the full face ski masks that RNDM wears. “Jeff let me wear one of those at a show in Seattle so I could be undercover and I didn’t last three songs and you have been wearing that thing all night. That is incredible. Let me introduce you. Ladies and gentlemen, Matt Damon!” The audience cheers, the guy in the mask raises his hands. (Matt Damon is in the audience but he is not the one wearing the RNDM mask.)

29. State Of Love And Trust
30. Black
31. The Real Me-(Townshend)
32. Alive
33. Rockin’ In The Free World-(Young) w/ special guest guitarist Donna Grantis
(Ed introduces Donna Grantis as an amazing guitar player. A Canadian guitarist who has been working in Minnesota. He is honored that she is going to play guitar with them tonight. She is great.)
