The post-show tape was The Waterboys' version of "Lost Highway".

Mike Scott's commentary on the show from the official Waterboys page (http://www.mikescottwaterboys.com):

The bus rolls up outside the Vic Theatre in Chicago around 10 in the morning and we tumble out of it half awake looking for a diner, Jay Dee, Steve, Richard and myself. We eat in Clarke's, opposite our hotel and as we sit down Bob Dylan is playing over the restaurant speakers, doing "Like A Rolling Stone". It's like meeting an old friend. Jay Dee thrills us with a story about being in The Bitter End club in New York in '75 when Dylan came in and sang the still-unreleased songs from "Desire" impromptu, "plucking his vocal phrases out of the air with incredible mastery".

After checking in, having a bath and working on a new song currently called "When At Last You Leave Him" I go round to the Vic to check the new stage set up - Richard and Steve are switching sides.

The show tonight is a cracker - a great venue and crowd, and I seem to have chosen the right setlist for the evening. Two favourites tonight are "Don't Bang The Drum" on which I enjoy some mischievous musical interplay with Mister Daugherty and Miss Wadeson, and "When Ye Go Away" - Rich and Steve's piano/fiddle instrumentals are just beautiful.
