Joe Elliott - Armageddon It/Vivian Campbell Intro

"Merci Beaucoup Montreal!. Good evening. How are we doing out there?. It's a real pleasure to be back here with you one more time. We seem to come here a lot and we recognise the backstage so well. We have played this place so many times and you are always so very welcoming of this band and we love you for it. Thank you so much. Merci Beaucoup. Everybody OK out there?. A lot of noise. Can you make some more noise, a bit more?. Little bit more. Little bit more!. For this boy here give it up for Mr. Vivian Campbell!."

Joe Elliott - Rock On/Rick Savage Intro

"Merci Beaucoup Montreal!. Look at this place. It's good to see so many of you here once again. As I just said we've been coming here for. I think this is like the 8th, 9th, 10th time we've played this particular venue which is a testimony to you guys more than anything else. For being here every time we come to town. And f**k it doesn't get any better than this does it. Think back, the first time we ever came here was in 1983 on the Pyromania tour. It's hard to think that back then the band was only five years old maybe. Maybe five and a half years old and look at us now. This band has been together for 42 years This line ups been together for 27 of those 42 years."

"And when we think back to the days when we first started, back in '77, to be, to even imagine that we could do this all these years later in 2019 this is f**king amazing thank you so much. Of course back then in 1977 it was just a dream and it started off in my Mum and Dad's house up in my bedroom. I was introduced to a few people. Tony Kenning was the drummer. Pete Willis was the guitar player. And the bass player who has been for 42 years my best friend. Make some noise please for Mr. Rick Savage!."

Joe Elliott - Pre-Rock Of Ages Speech

"Merci Beaucoup!. Oh this is definitely our kind of town Montreal. Oh yeah. Over the years. Over the last 20, 25, 30 years we have often been asked Which is the loudest crowd that you have ever played in front of?. And to a man everyone of us if we've been interviewed on TV, radio, magazines whatever. One word keeps recurring every time. That word is Montreal!."

"And that is a hell of a noise you're making out there. Oh f**kin' A yes it is. However you can make maybe just a little bit more?. Just a little bit more?>. For the boy at the back stand up Rick Allen!. Ans as usual he will introduce this one for ya."

Joe Elliott - End Of Show Speech

"Montreal. Thanks for having us. Thanks for coming. Thanks for being here. We'll see you next time. Goodnight."

"Merci Beaucoup!. Montreal!. Let's do this again one day. Until next time. And there will be a next time!. Till then do us a big favour yeah. Don't forget us and we won't forget you. Au revoir!."

The next show takes place in Ottawa, ON on 18th July.
