During "Please Bleed" Ben went off on the final chorus yelling the words, and spent a good 2 minutes strumming the final chords while repeating "so I know you are real" while the band looked on. During "The Woman in You" Ben absolutely screamed the final choruses. Ben got up and danced at the end of "Steal My Kisses" and tried to start a mosh pit with Juan. After "Walk Away" Ben thanked the crowd for how quiet they had been and said he had planned on doing 3 acoustics, but decided they could handle another. "Touch from your Lust" is a song Ben described as "very very new" and it was amazing. Famous Juan Nelson bass solo and P-Funk/James Brown thrown in on "Fight For Your Mind." After "Fight" the band put down all their instruments and David had even left the stage while Ben just sat there for a second thanking the crowd. He asked someone on side-stage what the time was and said, "We're already late, but I think we'll play some more." And that led to "Manic Depression" with a great exchange between Ben and Juan with Juan joining Ben on his raised platform.
