Encore: Fishnet Stockings
Notes: Encore cut short by the band due to the club's lack of security resulting in  excessive stage-diving throughout the show, most notably during Fishnet Stockings. "We wanna play a couple more, but this dive-bomber shit has to stop! Any more and we're outta here!", Brian warned the sold out crowd as the band returned for their encore. After countless idiots ignored his warning - climbing up and diving off the stage, the band abruptly ended the song and left quickly.
