The band kept on playing the last chord waiting for Michael to stop the song. But the cable somehow got caught in his necklace and he couldn't untie the cable. The band was already joking about it and continued to play the last chord, a roadie came to help him, while Michael started to sing 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' by The Stooges. And the band had great fun to get into the song. After the first chorus Michael was finally released and went on singing another verse and chorus with Peter and Scott joining in on the chorus!

"We came here today from London. It's an understatement to say that this has been a difficult couple of days for everyone. Music is, at it's best, about catharsis, about epiphany, about feeling, about remembering, about community and about celebration - about celebrating life. The intention here tonight and with this gesture is to honour that; not to forget but to remember and to honour the sanctity of life. Together, tonight, let's raise our voices up in celebration and in rememberance."
