– After Fred came out on stage and sat down on the dad recliner he revealed to the crowd that he isn’t feeling well and asked the crowd to help with him get through the show. After ‘Dad Vibes’, he thanked the crowd and commented the performance as “fiery”.
– Due to a very strict and unforgiving 10:30 pm curfew by the venue the band had to cut the show short to almost 75 minutes despite going on stage at 9:18 pm, which was almost ten minutes earlier than usual on the tour. Fred also mentioned the curfew in place after ‘My Way’.
– This was the first time ever that the band did a brief pause before the last chorus of ‘Out Of Style’.
– Fred made a shoutout to hardcore fan “Winnie The Pooh”, who was in attendance, before ‘Dirty Rotten Bizkit’.
– Wes and John jammed the bridge of ‘Master Of Puppets’ by Metallica before ‘Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle)’.
– DJ Lethal played the following interludes over the PA at this show: ‘Rawhide’ in A (originally by Frankie Laine, performed by The Blues Brothers) and ‘…Baby One More Time’ by Britney Spears (after ‘Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle)’), ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)’ by Backstreet Boys (after ‘Hot Dog’) and ‘Party Up (Up In Here)’ by DMX, ‘Walk’ by Pantera and ‘Just A Friend’ by Biz Markie (all after the John Carnage skit).
– During the bridge of ‘Hot Dog’ Fred picked up a fan to join him on vocals for remainder of the song. They took a selfie together after the song.
– After ‘Livin’ It Up’ Fred’s friend John Carnage appeared on stage and did a skit to prank as “LiveNation”, causing the crowd to boo at him heavily. Fred took off his pants for fun before John walked away from the stage.
– Wes and John briefly jammed the intro of ‘Jerry Was A Racecar Driver’ by Primus before ‘Re-Arranged’.
– Malachi, guitarrist of Scowl, joined the band on vocals for ‘Killing In The Name’ (Rage Against The Machine cover) for the second of two times ever. TikToker richisfunny came out on stage during the intro too and took a seat on the dad recliner and stayed there until the first verse of ‘Nookie’. From then on he danced on the stage until the end of ‘Full Nelson’.
– ‘Nookie’ was played until the second chorus and went straight into ‘Full Nelson’ for which Milkie Way from Wargasm UK joined the band on vocals for. Wes’ guitar slightly malfunctioned during the intro of ‘Nookie’.
– Sam Matlock from Wargasm UK joined the band on vocals for ‘Take A Look Around’ from the end of the first verse. The song was aborted after the second chorus due to the very strict curfew. Fred then got all openers and guests of the show out on stage. DJ Lethal started playing the ‘Saturday Light Live’ outro over the PA but quickly stopped so ‘Break Stuff’ could be started almost immediately. Since the fake goodbye couldn’t be done the ‘Saturday Night Live’ outro was played over the PA as show outro instead. The song stayed as show outro for the rest of the tour.
– Soundcheck included ‘Just Like This’.
– Fred felt sick at this show but performed regardless.
– This was the first time ever that the band performed at Madison Square Garden. 6500 people were in attendance.
– The band came so close to exceeding the curfew tolerance limit that they were less than 30 seconds away from being fined.
– Many of the bands’ families were in attendance at this show.
– Due to requests by the band and the venue setting strict orders for recording by the artists we were asked to not record this show. Of course we happily followed the request and checked out the show from the side of the stage instead. You can check out some photos from that spot below.
– Thanks to New York Weekly for the photo of John and Ava Otto.
