[1] ¡Olé Olé Olé! chant from Trey.

Frankenstein was preceded by a Frankie Says tease by Fish. After the Frankenstein, Trey said the band had been waiting and waiting to play some Edgar Winter in Spain and that this was their chance, adding that they planned on playing a lot more Edgar Winter as the night went on. The band subsequently teased Edgar Winter's Free Ride. Sleeping Monkey included ¡Olé Olé Olé! chants from Trey and a stage appearance by Beatriz (whom Trey had met in a bar the night before) from Chile. Sleeping Monkey was her favorite song, so Trey dedicated it to her and she danced while the band played. This three-show run in Barcelona was originally scheduled for Bikini Club in Barcelona, but was moved to Zeleste when ticket demand greatly exceeded supply for the original venue.
