Special Notes:
During 'Jesus just left Chicago' Billy sings "...and he came to Graz, Austria, you know what I'm saying!". After 'Pincushion' Billy asks "Are we having a good Time?!" the first time...and subsequently says: "Alright, we're in ...Graz, is that," and announces the next song.
Before 'Future Blues' he asks again, "Are we having a good Time NOW?!" and asks "Wo ist sie, meine Freundin...Becky...Rebecca?" (Where is friend..."). A local girl walks on the stage and asks him "Wie geht's dir, Billy?" (How are you, Billy?) and he answers "Super!". She asks "Wirst du uns heute abend den Blues spielen?" (Will you play the Blues for us tonight?) He replies "Yeah, ich brauche einen Blues-Hut" (In need a Blues-Hat") and she answers "Ich weiß wo dein Blues-Hut ist" (I know where your Blues-Hat is). After that his 'Blues Technician' brings him his hat and the two girls walk off the stage again.
In the second verse of the snippet of 'My Head's in Mississippi' the audience sings "...but my head's in Mississippi" to which Billy replies "My head's in Graz!"
