Robyn came out in exactly the same outfit as the night before, though
awfully disheveled this time. After "We are the Underneath" Robyn and
co. retired, claiming they would go backstage to drink, but saying a
REALLY special guest would be showing up shortly (causing a mock indignant
expression from Grant). Speculation ran rampant, as you'd imagine, until
Flanagan appeared and introduced Neil Finn.

Neil played a short (but lovely) set, mostly of fairly obscure songs.
One of them he said his 3-year-old son collaborated with him on; one
other he'd never before done on stage. A wonderful little interlude.

Robyn, Grant, and Jon came back out, and Neil announced that he was
going to do something he'd always wanted to do... play the drums. Which
he did for the rest of the night. (continued in set 2)
