(5H) Incredible amounts of stagediving at this show cause Jeff to be concerned for his pedals and he warns the crowd to be careful of the equipment. Ed also expresses some distress: "These heads you see up here ... they're human. They break. If you wanna break someone's head, maybe you should do it with your head and not your boots, you pussies!" 'Deep' is introduced as "a four-letter word called 'Deep.'" Ed's intro to 'Alive': "And maybe, what I think of this song is a world you would be in on MTV or something. No, listen, maybe it feels a little weird for me, cause I am a protector of this song as well, cause it's like as you know, your life. So I hope you listen to it in the right way, and I think live is probably the way." During a short 'Sympathy for the Devil' jam, Ed attempts to cool down the crowd by calling it the 'Waterpouring Song' and pours water on the crowd. With the crowd yelling for 'Hunger Strike,' Ed asks if there is a "political strike going on in Holland cuz everywhere we go we hear people yelling about a hunger strike." He later treats the crowd to a short version of 'Hunger Strike' saying, "I can't wait to tell Chris about that") and plays a little drum solo before 'Alone.' Ed tells the crowd he has a new tattoo and now he's a "... walking piece of art. I used to be just a loser." He says he really wants to jump in the crowd but is concerned people will grab his sore, tattooed leg. A super show.
