Burlington, VT

Memorial Auditorium

Friday, February 4, 2000 at 7:00pm PST

Before the show Ben mentioned that the set in Northampton was the best of the tour, and that he was seriously considering repeating the exact same set for tonight in Burlington. He didn't.... After "Faded", Ben pointed at some fans in the front and said, "These folks gave me a hat tonight. Thank you for my hat. It's the bomb." And with that he put his pinky up to his mouth, just like the famous Dr. Evil and said, "It's an evil hat, so evil." Later during the set, just before "The Woman in You" with the house lights on, Ben said "Hi" to all the people on the side and in the very back of the auditorium. He spoke about how he found the venue quite intimate. However, he said "intimate might not be the perfect word, yet maybe it is." In actuality the Memorial Auditorium is a gymnasium.
