Thanks to Brooklyndust for the setlist!

Jason shares some concert highlights:
During "Pass the Mic," Adrock totally messed up his lines and repeated the same verse from earlier in the song. They had to stop the whole show because MCA didn't know where to pick it up from. Mix Master Mike had to go back and start the beats over again. And again, during "Professor Booty," Mike D forgot his lines about halfway through, and they stopped the whole show. It was funny because Adrock and MCA were trying to help him remember. Mike D blamed it on not performing the song in 15 years.
Brooklyndust describes the surprise performance of "Professor Booty," which has not been performed since 1992:
I cannot believe they played it. The song was not flawless. They screwed up some parts. Mike was reading the lyrics off a piece of paper. MCA killed it during the 3rd Bass diss at the end. Right after "Professor Booty," they did the chorus from "Some Dumb Cop Gave Me Two Tickets."
