02.09.88 London, England, intro to ‘My Hometown’
´´How you doing out there tonight ? (cheers)....that’s good.....glad you all could make it down....when I was a kid and uh.....I remember I got my first rock and roll records.....I got something out of those records that....that I’d never found any place else....you know, they had like uh.....they gave you a kind of a sense of fun.....and a sense of sex ....sense of good times....sense of possibility....sense of your own possibility.... but most of all....they gave you a sense of freedom....and it always seemed to me that what rock made best, when it was at its best....was it made freedom.....you know, little....on these records there were little three-minute short bursts of it coming at you.....and for me those records always seemed to carry a promise.....and a big what-if.....like what if you could take those little three minutes of freedom....and stretch them into....hours....or stretch them into days.... or stretch them from childhood into adulthood....and what, what if you could spread ‘em all around town..... to the people that needed ‘em most....like for me, what Amnesty International.....and tonight is about....is making the world a little less oppressive....a little less brutal....a little less hateful .....and most of all more free....so...from my hometown to your hometown, we could use a little help....to let freedom ring....a little louder.....”
