´´I wanna say that I´m so glad to be here in your lovely city tonight….but we´re not here on a, on a casual visit or for a vacation or to watch a football game, no, we´re here tonight with a purpose….we´ve come a long way….it´s been a long journey…. (lists the miles and the towns he´s been) and Manchester !….and everywhere I´ve gone I´ve seen confusion….everywhere I´ve gone I´ve seen people lost….I´ve seen people downhearted ….I´ve seen people dispirited…I´ve seen people dispossessed….I know you´ve been analyzed, downsized, stigmatised, retropsychedelicized and I´m here tonight to tell you that if your soul´s got bad credit, it´s good here…..that if your heart´s running on empty, step on up to the pumps, we´re selling high-test supreme for you….that if your spirit is bankrupt, we´re here tonight to raise that debt up off you and to set you free…why ?… why ?….why ?….because I like to, that´s why…. I’m here tonight to regenerate you, I want to, I want to resuscitate you, I want to re-educate you, I want to rededicate you, I want to, I want to, I want to liberate you with the power and the promise, with the power, the promise, with the power, the promise, the majesty, the mystery….the ministry of rock and roll !….and I wanna tell you that I, I wanna tell you that I cannot, I wanna tell you that I cannot, I wanna tell you that I cannot, I wanna tell you that I cannot, that I cannot promise you life everlasting but I can promise you….life right now !….I said I can promise you….life right now !….I said I can promise you….life right now !….I said I can promise you….life right now ! ….and all you’ve got to do is say ´I´….´´
