This was the final concert of the 2023-2024 Memento Mori Tour. Behind The Wheel was performed in the slot which previously had "John The Revelator", for this concert only.

Prior to Waiting For The Night, Dave spoke to the audience. A video of the first speech can be watched via this tweet posted by Tara Salt (@Dingerz).

The audio below contains both of Dave's speeches:

A transcription of Dave's speech is below:

Before Waiting For The Night:

Dave: Thank you very much, thank you. Uhm, wait, I think before we start this, Martin and I want to thank Pete and Christian especially, of course, for being part of what we've just been doing for the last year...

Martin: Or more.

Dave: Or more, probably, yeah. And most importantly, the road crew, all the road crew, everybody, all of them. There's like, a hundred people that make this thing happen every night. And it's really been a special tour. We've had, obviously, some challenges at the beginning. We lost our friend, and Martin and I decided to carry on and make this record.

<crowd cheers>

Dave: And we did the tour, and I'm glad we did. Anyway, most importantly, I want to thank you all for being with us all these years. It really means a lot to us. Thank you so much.

Dave also said a few words after Waiting For The Night:

Dave: Thank you very much, thank you. Before we start the next song, I forgot to mention the captain of the ship and his very very loyal sidekick: Mr. Jonathan Kessler, and Mr. Alex Pollock. They really do make all this happen, so let's hear it!

<crowd cheers>

Dave: Thank you.
