  • The show started with an improvisional intro with the band members in costume for Halloween. Kurt was Barney (with a bottle of Jack Daniel's in his hand, which he apparently chugged through the mask's mesh mouth and the tail tied between the leg), Pat was Slash, Dave was a mummy, and Krist was a white-faced "reverse Ted Danson" with "P.C." on his forehead for "Politically Correct." (The actor Ted Danson had recently been ridiculed for making a public appearance in black-face with his girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg.) At some point, Kurt changed his costume and came back to the stage with fairy wings and a big black moustache drawn on his face.
  • After "About A Girl", someone in the audience threw a shoe at Kurt. Kurt took the shoe, urinated in it, and then asked who the shoe belonged to. The shoe’s owner replied that it was thrown onstage by someone else. Kurt apologized and said he would have to buy the person a newpair of shoes.
