Rising Star: New Formations & Destruction (Season 3A)

Chapter Text

Special: A Ticket For Everyone

An airplane sound came from the speakers around everyone.

"You guys ready here at the O2?" Austin said as the Bass came in. "This is a treat, a real Present For Everyone. Let's go!" he yelled & played his guitar as Ryker played his bass, then everyone else joined in with the airplane noise in the background & B-Roll of one on the screens behind them.

Rocky: Yeah! All right!

Austin took the mic in his hand & walked up to the front of the stage, high-fiving the crowd.

Austin: Walking through the terminal,
I saw something beautiful
You left for your duty call
Next I'm getting on the plane,
That's when I see you again
I can't get you off my brain
Let's go

Austin put the mic back on the stand & played his guitar.

Rocky: That uniform you're wearing,
So hot I can't stop staring
You're putting on Both: an awesome show
The cabin pressure's rising,
My coke has got no ice in now

Austin, Rocky, & Ryker jumped & all sang.

Air hostess,
I like the way you dress
You know I hate to fly, but I feel much better
Occupy my mind, writing you a love letter
I messed my pants when we flew over France
Will I see you soon in my hotel room for a holiday romance,
Air hostess?

Austin walked over to Rocky.

Ryker: Throwing peanuts down the aisle
Stupid, but it made you smile
You came over for a while
Then you whispered in my ear the words that I longed to hear,
"I want you to thrill me here"

Riker chuckled slightly in a high voice.

Hey!

Austin made it back over to the mic.

Austin: You can't because you're working,
The paparazzi's lurking
You didn't know I'm in a band
In the US, people know me,
One photo's worth a hundred grand

GO!

All: Air hostess,
I like the way you dress
You know I hate to fly, but I feel much better
Occupy my mind, writing you a love letter
I messed my pants when we flew over France
Will I see you soon in my hotel room for a holiday romance,
Air hostess?

"Sing it!" Austin screamed, then the audience all sang the next part.

Na na na na, Na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na, Na na na na, Na na na na
Na na na na

Austin bent the mic stand forward, bending down on one knee as he sang.

Austin: That uniform you're wearing,
So hot I can't stop staring
You're putting on an awesome show
The plane has almost landed,
So tell me…where I'm standing now!

The sound effect panned around their speakers as Austin stood back up.

All: Air hostess,
I like the way you dress
You know I hate to fly, but I feel much better
Occupy my mind, writing you a love letter
I messed my pants when we flew over France
Will I see you soon in my hotel room for a holiday romance,
Air hostess?

Austin: Cause you're my air hostess (Na na na na, Na na na na)
I love the way you dress (Na na na na)
Air hostess (Na na na na)
My air hostess (Na na na na, Na na na na)
I love the way you dress (Na na na na)
Air hostess (Woo!)

They paused for a moment, letting the audience scream, then Austin pointed back to Ellington & he played the drums while they all played their guitars. Austin & Rocky played back-to-back for a sec.

They went back to their mics.

Austin: When I woke up,
I was so proud to see you lying naked next to me
And the clothes you wore the night before
Were lying on my bedroom floor and…

Rocky: This is how I want it to be (Ba na na na)
You know it, I want it that way

Austin jumped in the air & they sang the chorus.

All: Baby, I don't no what to say
It's like that everyday
I never felt this way
Yeah, yeah
I just don't know what to do
If I can't be with you, girl, you know it's true
I love that thing you do

Austin walked up to Rocky & they played the guitar parts together.

Ryker: Seen everything, I dreamt it all
W/ Rocky: Last night we did it in the waterfall
Riker: Then you turned round, all I could see
W/ Rocky: Was beautiful simplicity, yeah

Austin: This is how I want it to be (Ba na na na)
You know it, I want it that way

"Sing it!"

Now,

All: Baby, I don't no what to say
It's like that everyday
I never felt this way
Yeah, yeah
I just don't know what to do
If I can't be with you, girl, you know its true

Austin took the mic to the front of the stage again.

Austin: I love that thing you do,
I love that thing you do,
I love that thing you do,
I love that thing you do

'Cause I love that thing you do, yeah!

Austin put the mic back on the stand & clapped with the drumbeats, having the crowd join him.

Baby, I don't no what to say (Ba, ba da…)
It's like that everyday
I've never felt this way
Yeah, yeah
I just, don't know what to do
If I can't be with you, girl, you know its true
I love that thing you

Austin's hands went back to his guitar.

All: Baby, (Baby) I don't no what to say (Don't no what to say)
It's like that everyday
I never felt this way
Yeah, yeah
I just don't know what to do
If I can't be with you, girl, you know its true (Ho-oh)
I love that thing you do,
I love that thing you do,
I love that thing you do,
I love that thing you do

"How are you guys doing?" Austin asked & the crowd went nuts. "That's good. This is our last night at the O2 for now, so we decided to give you guys a treat. McBusted's off for the night, so we're doing Busted's last live setlist from A Ticket For Everyone. You guys ok with that!?"

The crowd cheered as Austin turned back & they began the next song.

Austin: Oh, yeah, yeah

Her voice is echoed in my mind, I count the days till she is mine
I can't tell my friends 'cause they will laugh, I love a member of the staff
Ryker: And I fight my way to front of class to get the best view of her ass
I drop the pencil on the floor, she bends down and shows me more

"Sing it!"

Austin jumped in the air again as they sang the chorus.

All: That's what I go to school for, even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy, but I know that she craves me
That's what I go to school for, even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends, I've had plenty, none like Miss MacKenzie
That's what I go to school for,
That's what I go to school for

"Everyone, welcome to the stage, Joe Jonas!" Austin said as they played & Joe came out with a mic. He walked over to Austin as he sang & put his elbow on Austin's shoulder.

Joe w/ Austin: So, she maybe 33, but that doesn't bother me
Her boyfriend's working out of town,
I find a reason to go 'round
I climb a tree outside her home to make sure that she's alone
I see her in her underwear, I can't help but stop and stare

Austin & Joe bounced as they sang the chorus.

All: That's what I go to school for, even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy, she is so amazing
That's what I go to school for, even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends, I've had plenty, she's the one that I need
That's what I go to school for,
That's what I go to school for

Austin & Joe: Everyone that you teach all day
Knows you're looking at me in a different way
I guess that's why my marks are getting so high
I could see those tell-tale signs, telling me that I was on your mind
I could see that you wanted more when you told me that I'm what you go to school for,
I'm what you go to school for

"Bounce!" Austin yelled & the crowd did with Joe.

All: She's packed her bag, it's in the trunk,
Looks like she picked herself a hunk
We drive by school to say goodbye,
My friends they can't believe their eyes

Joe stopped jumping, then went back-to-back with Austin as they sang.

That's what I go to school for, even though it is a real bore
You can call me crazy, but I know that she craves me
That's what I go to school for, even though it is a real bore
Girlfriends, I've had plenty, none like Miss MacKenzie
That's what I go to school for,
That's what I-what I-

Joe: That's what I go to school for

"Give it up for Joe Jonas, everybody!" Ryker yelled into his mic as they gave Joe hugs & then he went off stage.

"I brought him out here to piss of the Busted fans who hate the Jonas Brothers' version of that song," Austin said with a chuckle, then took a sip of a water bottle he had sitting next to his mic stand. "Now," he started again, putting it back down on the stage. "Who's familiar with Invasion of the Body Snatchers?" he asked. "'Cause this is, 'She Wants to Be Me.'"

Ellington started the drums, then they all played along.

Austin: At first I told myself I need my head inspected,
I noticed little things, same t-shirt and sunglasses,
Then it got weirder see she cut her hair like me,
She bought a red guitar, kept driving 'round in my car

Rocky: I'm kissing her and she, she slams me against the wall,
She crashed into a bus chasing some super model,
She's analyzed my smile, she's memorized my contacts,
She always wears my clothes,
Her favorite words are, "fuck you"

A girl came out on the stage & stood next to Austin, dressed like him.

All: She looks like, does like, sounds like me
She's stealing my identity and I'm begging you
Somebody notice me, somebody notice
I'm fading away here
What I gotta do to make you see my girlfriend is a wannabe
And she wants to be me?

The girl walked all around the stage.

Austin: I'm saying something wrong, she's out back playing soccer
She used to do ballet, now she's a heavy smoker
She's so obsessed with me,
Ryker: Now she stands up to pee
Austin: And now her stupid games have started taking over

Rocky: Don't need no special help, don't need to see a doctor
I know your worried, but I'm telling you just watch her
It's like she's cracked my code, knows things I've never spoke of
She wants sex all the time and still finds time to jack off!

The girl got a wig off stage.

All: She looks like, does like, sounds like me
She's stealing my identity and I'm begging you
Somebody notice me, somebody notice
I'm fading away here
What I gotta do to make you see my girlfriend is a wannabe
And she wants to be me?

The girl put an ear mic on Austin's head & chased him all around the stage as he played, sang, & ran from her.

I'm not joking, she won't stop provoking me
I'm going under
What I gotta do to make you see my girlfriend is a wannabe
And she wants to be me?

She chased him into a jail cell & he sang.

Austin: I'm in the loony bin, wearing a pale pink nightie
The nurse comes through the door and whispers so politely,
Rydell: "Your boyfriend's here to see you
Look pretty, take a bath
I love his silly band, can I get his autograph?"

The girl, now disguised as Austin (in his clothes now too), got a guitar & played the song, lip syncing to Austin's voice at the front of the stage.

All: She looks like, does like, sounds like me
She's stealing my identity and I'm begging you
Somebody notice me, somebody notice
I'm fading away here
What I gotta do to make you see my girlfriend is a wannabe
And she wants to be me?

I'm not joking, she won't stop provoking me
I'm going under
What I gotta do to make you see my girlfriend is a wannabe
And she wants to be, she wants to be,
She wants to be me?

They wound down from that song, then everything went dark &, after a minute, they started playing with strobe lights going throughout. The spotlight then revealed Austin with an acoustic guitar.

Austin: I don't give a damn about you
No, nothing can change my mind, no way
I'm happy just to let you walk away
W/ Ryker: Don't think about you at night
I'm happy to be alone, it's ok,
But that was yesterday and now I'm
w/ Rocky: Driving in my car, words wont get me far
When they don't mean shiiiitttttt!

The spotlights revealed the other 2 when they came in, then the entire stage was lit with fog over it.

All: I'm calling you at 3AM and I'm standing here right outside the door
And I don't think that my heart can take much more
Scared of cracking up again, I just want it to be like it was before
'Cause I don't think that my heart can take much more

Rocky: I don't give a damn what you do,
I'm going to get with you again
And that's the way this night is gonna end
W/ Austin: You say that you need time
How long does it take to see that we are more than meant to be?

All: And now you're driving in your car,
But you won't get far 'cause your car is shiiiittt!

"Sing it!" Austin yelled. The crowd sang & held up their smartphones, waving them in the air.

I'm calling you at 3AM and I'm standing right outside the door
And I don't think that my heart can take much more
I'm scared of cracking up again I just want it to be like it was before
'Cause I don't think that my heart can take much more

Much more!
Austin: Can take much more!
Ryker: Can take much more!
Rocky: Can take much more!

All: Driving in my car, words wont get me far
When they don't mean shiiiiiittttt!

I'm calling you at 3AM and I'm standing right outside the door
And I don't think that my heart can take much more
I'm scared of cracking up again I just want it to be like it was before
'Cause I don't think that my heart can take much more

"You guys are great," Austin said into the mic. "Now for just me. Why? That's a good question. Ask Charlie," Austin said as he switched to his other guitar, handing the stage hand that brought it his acoustic. He began strumming & singing softly.

Look at me up in the sky, I watch the world just pass me by
And all my feelings give me away, it's happening more everyday
Loving you could be so easy, loving you could be so great
Loving you could be so easy, loving you could be so great (So great)

Austin played the power chord, then Ellington came in & the other 2 played as well as the lights on the stage went wild. The crowd cheered hard.

But how can I try to explain?
Your story never seems to stay the same
You're out of touch and I'm out of time,
Just talk to me a while
And joke about the things we used to see,
It's so hard for me to smile

I've never felt so alone
After all of this, there's so much left to lose
And I'll take a piece of stone
I promise you, I never meant to (To, to…)

Confetti came down from the ceiling & shot out of cannons on the side of the stage.

Well, how can I complain
When everybody seems to know my name?
You're out of luck and I'm out of line
It's such a selfish compromise,
A self-indulgent, useless bunch of lies
I never thought you would believe

Hold me now, don't wake me up,
Pull me down and then back up
All again for all to see

A lowdown whisper, A guilty stare,
Your stagnant beauty makes me glare
Silly games in the sun,
In the sun, In the sun,
Oh, in the sun

Well, how can I complain?
Your story never seems to stay the same
I'm out of luck and you're out of line
It's such a selfish compromise,
A self-indulgent, useless bunch of shit
I never thought you would believe

Go!

Austin ran over to the catwalk where he & Rocky went wild on the guitar solo.

When it wound down, Austin went back to his spot on the stage & they played softly again, playing the song out.

Loving you could be so easy, loving you could be so great
Loving you could be so easy, loving you could be so great

Only Austin played as it was just a spotlight on him. He just spoke the words as he played the guitar.

Well, maybe a change will keep me high
Stop me thinking, wondering why

"Man, that song's so good!" Austin said backstage & it went to his video diary for the tour. "It's all about Charlie's feelings about Busted & Fightstar at the time. The fact that it's just him singing about his frustrations is great."

It went back to the stage as the crowd went nuts & Rocky played the guitar chords.

"Mood whiplash!" Austin yelled out, then began singing.

Your face is everywhere I go now, you're on every television show now
Baby, I need you
You're everything I want in someone, but you don't even know who I am
Baby, why should you?

Rocky: Spreading all over your video,
Watching every single scene in slow-mo
Tracking you down on the Internet
'Cause I ain't seen you naked yet...

All: I want you, Britney, eh hey
I need you here with...me,
You know that I won't stop until I've got you
I want you, Britney

Austin: I even know the place that you live
And I don't care who your boyfriend is,
'Cause, one day, it's gonna be me
And I think that I'm obsessed with you girl,
'Cause I copy everything you do now
And Pepsi lets me taste you

Ryker: God must of spent a little more time on you
In school uniform, you look so good
And you say that you're not a girl,
But I'll make you a woman

Austin: I want you, Britney, eh hey
I need you here with...me
You know that I won't stop until I've got you
I want you, Britney

Ellington: Every single thing you do,
Every time I look at you
I become a slave for you
You drive me crazy
All: You know that I won't stop until I've got you
I want you Britney

Ryker: Now, what the hell can I do to get closer to you?
You can run, you can't hide
I'll make you feel good inside (Na na na na na na na)
What the hell can I do to get closer to you? (Na na na na na na na)
You can run, you can't hide, I'll make you feel good inside...

All: I want you, Britney, eh hey
I need you here with me
You know that I won't stop until I've got you
I want you, Britney

I want you, Britney, eh hey
I need you here with me
You know that I won't stop until I've got you
I want you, Britney

"Man, that song's cringe, but we all know who Britney was. Who's David, though?" Austin said, then they started playing.

Rocky: You've always been this way since high school;
Flirtatious and quite loud
I find your sense of humor spiteful,
It shouldn't make you proud
And I know your pretty face gets far with guys,
But your make up ain't enough to hide the lies

All: Are you sure that you're mine, aren't you dating other guys?
'Cause you're so cheap and I'm not blind,
You're not worthy of my time
You're just a whore, who sleeps around the town
And I've got proof because the word's going around
Don't know you…

Austin: You left your phone, so I invaded, I hated what I saw
You stupid lying cunt, who's David?
Some guy who lives next door?
So, go live in the house of David if you like,
But be sure he don't know Peter, John, or Mike

All: Are you sure that you're mine, aren't you dating other guys?
'Cause you're so cheap and I'm not blind
You're not worthy of my time
Somebody saw you sleep around the town
And I got proof because the word's going around
Don't know you

Ooh-ooh-ooh, whoa-oh-oh

Ryker: And I know that you try to break me into pieces
And I know what you're like, but you can't hurt me now, I'm over you

All: Ooh-ooh-ooh oh, whoa-oh-oh
Austin: Don't like you-ooh
All: Ooh-ooh-ooh oh, whoa-oh-oh

Are you sure that you're mine, aren't you dating other guys?
'Cause you're so cheap and I'm not blind,
You're not worthy of my time
You're just a whore, (You're just a-) who sleeps around the town
And I've got proof because the word's going around (Words going around)
Don't know you…

Don't like you
Ooh-ooh-ooh oh whoa-oh-oh,
Don't like you
Ooh-ooh-ooh oh whoa-oh-oh,
Don't know you

"All right. Anyone over age of consent looking to get laid tonight?" Austin asked. "Find you that guy or gal you're into here & rock their world. Don't be selfish or lazy about it. Get your teenage kicks!" he added, then they started to play with the winding up, then the guitar chords.

1, 2, 3, 4…
All right!

Ryker: Are teenage dreams so hard to beat?
Everytime she walks down the street
Another girl in the neighborhood
Wish she was mine, she looks so good

All: I wanna hold you, wanna hold you tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night
Come on!

Rocky: I'm gonna call her on the telephone
And have her over 'cause I'm all alone
I need excitement and I need it bad
'Cause it's the best, I've ever had

All: I wanna hold you, wanna hold you tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night, come on
Come on!

Instrumental

Austin: Are teenage dreams so hard to beat?
Everytime she walks down the street
Another girl in the neighborhood
Wish she was mine, she looks so good

All: I wanna hold you, wanna hold you tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night

Ellington: I'm gonna call her on the telephone
And have her over 'cause I'm all alone
I need excitement and I need it bad
'Cause it's the best, I've ever had

All: I wanna hold you, wanna hold you tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night (All right!)

I wanna hold you wanna hold you tight
Austin: Get those teenage kicks right through the night, yeah
All right

The drums came in & Rocky played the guitar as Austin sang while holding his mic.

The more I look, the more I find it hard to see
I'm uncultured, but I'm not quite sure what that means
Why bring me down and complicate?

He joined in on guitar.

You take my words,
But then you hear them a different way
Your talking leaves me not quite sure what to say
We're talking now, but is it too late?
Who's listening now? Why won't you

Find me and show me
What do you want from me?
There's gotta be better than this
I don't wanna leave you, but maybe I need to
There's gotta be better than this
Oh, we'll never know

Do you remember when we talked for hours on end
Just being stupid, but at least we didn't pretend
Your smile helped me to find my way
Who's listening now? Why won't you

Find me and show me
What do you want from me?
There's gotta be better than this, oh
I don't wanna leave you, but maybe I need to
There's gotta be better than this, oh
Oh, we'll never know

I'll dream this away
And come back another day
When I'm less afraid of it all

They played the instrumental.

Find me and show me
What do you want from me?
There's gotta be better than this, oh
I don't wanna leave you, but maybe I need to
There's gotta be better than this

Oh, we'll never know,
Oh, we'll never know,
Oh, we'll never know

They played the last chord.

"Oh yeah!" Rocky yelled. "This one's called 'Fake'!" he announced, then he played the guitar chords.

Austin: I can't believe what my girlfriend did today,
She screamed so loudly and then she turned away
Ryker: Why did she cut me down to size?
She left me wondering, 'Can I do it right?'

Austin joined in on the guitar.

All: What am I gonna do now the game's up?
Can't get her off, that's kind of rough
She'd better not tell my friends today
So, baby, tell me now, do I need to measure?
'Cause I'm feeling under pressure
I'm just hoping that the fear will go away
Rocky: Don't wanna be a fake

I woke up in a sweat, felt a disgrace
She looked so beautiful, love on her face
Ryker: Feeling stupid all on my own
I put it down to experience, 'cause now I've grown

All: What am I gonna do now the game's up?
Can't get her off, that's kind of rough
She'd better not tell my friends today
So, baby, tell me now, do I need to measure?
'Cause I'm feeling under pressure
I'm just hoping that the fear will go away
Austin: Don't wanna be a fake

Don't wanna be a fake, it's quite uncanny
'Cause my favorite film's When Harry Met Sally
Now I'm finished, there's no way that we're ever gonna be okay
Don't wanna be a fake, how long can I go?
You might find me reading Cosmo
When I'm finished,
You know that you're gonna wanna be with me,
Gonna wanna be with me,
Gonna wanna be with me

Yeah!

Rocky: Got a girl on my sofa, yeah, getting undressed
I gotta know, can I deliver? 'Cause I'm feeling stressed

They paused a second.

And she's got big breasts!

They picked back up.

All: What am I gonna do, is my game up?
I've got the goods, is that enough?
There's almost nothing left to say
So, wish me luck, not gonna run
The final countdown has begun
Not gonna see, or hear them laughing in my face

What am I gonna now the game's up?
I can't get her off, that's kind of rough
She'd better not tell my friends today
So, baby, tell me now, do I need to measure?
'Cause I'm feeling under pressure
I'm just hoping that the fear will go away

Austin: Don't wanna be a fake

"Hard to be fake when you're nerdy," Austin said, then Ellington played them in.

Rocky: It's always been up to your friends, they'll make your mind up for you
The popularity's gone to your head, but, still, I don't ignore you
Austin: You ran for school election, you even got my vote (But did you know)
My favorite pastime's poetry, and yesterday I wrote

Both: Just because I'm nerdy and my friends are flirty,
It doesn't mean that I swing that way,
You've got complications and a reputation,
Wouldn't wanna get in your way, oh, anyway

Austin: This morning you walked past my door,
Just like a daydream, but much more
I followed you 'round to the store,
And I was shellshocked when I saw
Ryker: You and your friends were smoking,
It always makes me choke
Austin: And did you know
Ryker: I'd do anything to have you,
But I wouldn't take your tote?
Hey!

All: Just because I'm nerdy and my friends are flirty,
It doesn't mean that I swing that way,
You've got complications and a reputation,
Wouldn't wanna get in your way,
Oh, anyway

Austin: Anyway, yeah
Ryker: Oh, anyway

Austin: You said my words were beautiful,
They almost made you cry
The markings on the wall were jaded,
I wonder why

Rocky: 1, 2, 3, 4…

All: Just because your nerdy and your friends are flirty,
It doesn't mean she won't swing your way
She's got complications and a reputation,
Go ahead and stand in her way
Just because your nerdy and your friends are flirty,
It doesn't mean she won't swing your way
She's got complications and a reputation,
Go ahead and stand in her way,
But anyway

Austin & Rocky played the guitar riff.

Anyway, anyway
Mmm...

They started playing the next song, 'You Said Know.'

Austin: You're so fit and you know it
And I only dream of you
'Cause my life's such a bitch,
But you can change it

Maybe you need somebody just like me
Don't turn me down
'Cause I've got no car and I got no money

All: I asked you to dance at the disco, but you said no!
The whole world was watching and laughing
On the day that I crashed and burned at your feet

Ellington: Since (Since) the day (The day) you ditched me (You ditched me),
I'm feeling so pathetic
'Cause the guys, well, they've ditched me
And it's all because of

All: You and your friends are laughing at me now
If you think that I'm nothing,
Ask your sister what you're missing!

I asked you to dance at the disco, but you said no!
The whole world was watching and laughing
On the day that I crashed and burned at your feet

Ryker: Maybe you think that you're too good for me
Tonight, when you get home, you're gonna see

The sound effects played.

I know I've got
Something better than you, baby

Na na na na, Na na na na
Na na na na, Na na na na (Woo, woo)
Na na na na, Na na na na (Woo, woo)
Na na na na, Na na na na (Woo, woo)

I asked you to dance at the disco, but you said no! (Woo, woo)
The whole world was watching and laughing (Woo, woo)
On the day that (Woo, woo)
I asked you to dance at the disco, but you said no! (Woo, woo)
The whole world was watching and laughing
On the day that I crashed and burned at your feet

Austin started laughing.

"God, the lyrics to that song are so bad! This one's better. We're off to the year 3000," he said & the electronic sounds came through the speakers.

Oh…yeah!

They played.

Austin: One day when I came home at lunchtime,
I heard a funny noise
Rocky: Went out to the backyard to find out
If it was one of those rowdy boys
Ryker: Stood there was my neighbor called Peter
And a Flux Capacitor

All: He told me he built a time machine
Like the one in that film I've seen, yeah, yeah

He said, "I've been to the year 3000,
Not much has changed but they lived under water,
And your great-great-great-grand-daughter is pretty fine" (Is pretty fine)

Rocky: He took me to the future in the flux thing and I saw everything
Ryker: Boybands and another one and another one and another one
Austin: Triple breasted women swim around town totally naked!

All: We drove around in a time machine
Like one in that film I've seen, yeah, yeah
He said, "I've been to the year 3000,
Not much has changed but they lived under water, (Not much has changed, but they lived under water)
And your great-great-great-grand-daughter is pretty fine" (Is pretty fine)

They cut the guitars except for Rocky's & sang. Joe Jonas came back out on the stage & joined their singing.

I took a trip to the year 3000
This song had gone multi platinum
Everybody brought our 7th album
It had outsold Michael Jackson

I took a trip to the year 3000,
This song had gone multi-platinum,
Everybody bought our 7th album, 7th album, 7th album

He told me he built a time machine
Like one in that film I've seen, yeah, yeah

He said, "I've been to the year 3000,
Not much has changed but they lived under water,
And your great-great-great-grand-daughter is pretty fine"
Austin: She's pretty fine

All: He said, "I've been to the year 3000, (3000)
Not much has changed but they lived under water, (Not much has changed, but they lived under water)
And your great-great-great-grand-daughter is pretty fine"

Oh, wow!

He said, "I've been to the year 3000,
Not much has changed but they lived under water, (Not much has changed, but they lived under water)
And your great-great-great-grand-daughter is pretty fine"
She's pretty fine

Oh, wow!

He said, "I've been to the year 3000, (I've been, I've been to the year 3000)
Not much has changed but they lived under water,
And your great-great-great-grand-daughter is pretty fine"

Joe went back off stage as the crowd cheered, then Rocky switched to an acoustic this time & started playing it while Austin sang, holding on to his mic with his hands.

People got out their phones & turned them on with the prompt on the screen behind them & waved them back & forth slowly as they sang along.

Along she came with her picture,
Put it in a frame, so I won't miss her
Got on a plane from London; Heathrow,
It seems such a shame, yeah...

They all played with Rocky. Austin played the power chords on his electric guitar.

All: I feel her…slipping through my fingers,
And now she's gone, I'm sleeping with the light on,
And shocks went through my veins, now that she's gone,
I'm sleeping with the light on

Austin w/ Rocky: Heard she's engaged, spoke to her best friend,
No one's to blame, here's where it all ends
And I feel the pain 'cause I'm without her,
I feel the pain...

All: I feel her…slipping through my fingers
And now she's gone, I'm sleeping with the light on,
And shocks went through my veins, now that she's gone,
I'm sleeping with the light on

Just the bass & drums.

Austin: I see the sight with a different light
Words cannot describe the way I'm feeling
'Cause I've been searching in my head
For the words I thought she'd said for too long...

No instruments but Austin's guitar.

All: I feel her…slipping through my fingers,
And now she's gone, I'm sleeping with the light on
And shocks went through my veins, now that she's gone,
I'm sleeping with the light on

They all played, Austin played the guitar solo right out on the catwalk near a mic that was out there.

Ellington: Oh yeah!

All: I feel her…slipping through my fingers, Ellington: (Slipping through my fingers)
And now she's gone, I'm sleeping with the light on (The light on, yeah)
And shocks went through my veins, now that she's gone, (Went through my-)
I'm sleeping with the light on

I feel her…slipping through my fingers,
Now she's gone, I'm sleeping with the light on, (Now she's gone, gone)
And shocks went through my veins, now that she's gone, (Went through my veins)
I'm sleeping with the light on

The song ended on the last chord.

"I miss you, Ally," Austin said & the stage went pitch black.

After a minute of the crowd cheering, a CG video of an organ came up & played some notes. The crowd went nuts as a spotlight showed Austin, Rocky, & Ryker all up on stage on a raised podium behind the drums with blazers, white shirts, & ties on with a close-up on the slide screens. They stood there stoic until Ellington came out with a ring box & Rydel (who was hanging backstage that night) came out in a bridal gown & they did a play-act of him proposing & she saying yes. They clapped, then their guitar necks came up from in front of them from below the podium & they took them. Ellington then kissed Rydel. After, Ellington got to his drums & Rydel got to a keyboard next to him. She then played the intro keys & he hit the drums with the other guys starting to play guitar. Austin jumped over Ellington on to the lower stage as he did, driving the crowd nuts, as more confetti shot out of the cannons on stage. The lights lit up a bunch of different colors & swayed to & fro on the stage as they played.

Austin: I'm so rushed off my feet, Rydel: (Ah)
Looking for Gordon Street
So much I need to say,
I'm sorry that it's on her wedding day

Ellington: Cause she's so right for me, Rydel: (Ah)
Her daddy disagrees
He's always hated me because I never got a J-O-B
'Cause she's mine

All: And I'm glad I crashed the wedding
It's better than regretting
I could've been a loser kid who ran away and hid,
But it's the best thing that I ever did

'Cause true love lasts forever
And now we're back together
As if he never met her
So, looking back, I'm glad I crashed the wedding

Austin: The neighbors spread the word
And my mom cried when she heard
I stole my girl away from everybody gathered there that day and
Just in time

All: And I'm glad I crashed the wedding,
It's better than regretting
I could've been a loser kid who ran away and hid
I said I'd do it and I did

'Cause true love lasts forever
And now we're back together
As if he never met her,
So, looking back, I'm glad I crashed the wedding

Austin jogged out on to the catwalk to the mic out there.

Ellington: Don't waste time being
Mad at me for taking her away
'Cause, anyway, she didn't wanna stay,
So please believe me when I say

Austin: She's glad I crashed the wedding,
It's better than regretting, oh yeah!
All: The ring she got was lame,
She couldn't take the pain,
She didn't wanna shitty second name

'Cause true love lasts forever Rydel: (True love lasts forever)
And now we're back together,
You might as well forget her and walk away
She's glad I crashed the wedding Rydel: (We're back together)

It's better than regretting Rydel: (It's better than regretting)
The ring she got was lame,
She couldn't take the pain,
She didn't wanna shitty second name Austin: (No, no, no, no)

'Cause true love lasts forever Austin: (True love lasts)
And now we're back together,
You might as well forget her and walk away
She's glad I crashed the wedding

They played the last note & the stage went black again. The crowd chanted 'encore.'

Ellington & Rocky played the drums ominously, with the lights strobing with the drumbeats.

They paused for a second.

"One, two, 1, 2, 3, 4!" Austin yelled, then he played the guitar chords.

Austin pointed to the audience on the last "do" of each line for them to sing.

All: Do do do do do, do
Do do do do do, do
Do do do do do do, do

"Sing it with me!"

Austin: She's got a lip ring and five colors in her hair
Not into fashion, but I love the clothes she wears
And her tattoo's always hidden by her underwear,
But she don't care

Everybody wants to know her name,
I threw a house party and she came
Ryker: Everyone asked me,
"Who the hell is she; that weirdo with five colors in her hair?"

She's just a loner with a sexy attitude,
I'd like to bone her 'cause she gets me in the mood
The rumors spreading 'round that she cooks in the nude,
She don't care, she don't care

Austin: Everybody wants to know her name
How does she cope with her new-found fame?
Everyone asked me,
"Who the hell is she; that weirdo with five colors in her hair?"

She was all I thought about, the girl I couldn't live without,
But then she went insane, she couldn't take the fame,
She said I was to blame
She'd had enough and shaved five colors off and now...
She's just a weirdo with no name

Rocky & Austin rocked the guitar solo.

Everybody wants to now her name
How did she cope with her new-found fame?
Everyone asked me,
"Who the hell is she; that weirdo with five colors in her hair?"

All: Do do do do do do,
Do do do do do do,
Do do do do do do,
Do do do do do do
Do

Rocky: One, two, three, four!

Austin began the guitar chords of the next song.

Austin: Went out with the guys and before my eyes,
There was this girl, she looked so fine
She blew my mind and I wish that she was mine
Then I said, "Hey wait up," 'cause I'm off to speak to her

And my friends said, (You'll never get her, never gonna get that girl)
But I didn't care (You'll never get her, never gonna get that girl)
'Cause I loved her long blonde hair (You'll never get her, never gonna get that girl)
And love was in the air
She looked at me (You'll never get her, never gonna get that girl)
And the rest is history (You'll never get her, never gonna get that...)

All: Dude, you're being silly 'cause your never gonna get that girl,
Austin: And you're never gonna get the girl

Ryker: We spoke for hours,
(She) Took off my trousers, (Spent)
Spent the day laughing in the sun
And we had fun
Then, my friends, they all looked stunned, yeah, yeah

Dude, she's amazing and I can't believe you got that girl

And my friends said, (She's amazing, I can't believe you got that girl)
Austin: She gave me more street cred, (She's amazing, I can't believe you got that girl)
I dug the book she read (She's amazing, I can't believe you got that girl)
And how could I forget,
She rocks my world (She's amazing, I can't believe you got that girl)
More than any other girl, yeah, yeah (She's amazing, I can't believe you got that girl)

Dude, she's amazing and I can't believe you got that girl
And I can't believe you got the girl

She looked incredible, just turned 17
I guess my friends were right
She's out of my league,
So what am I to do?
She's too good to be true

Ryker: One, two, three, four

Austin & Rocky rocked the guitar solos again, first playing at each other, then back-to-back.

Rocky: But, three days later, went 'round to see her,
But she was with another guy
Austin: Then I said, "fine," but I never asked her why
And, since then, loneliness has been a friend of mine

And my friends said, (Such a pity, I'm sorry that you lost that girl)
I let her slip away (Such a pity, I'm sorry that you lost that girl)
They tell me every day (Such a pity, I'm sorry that you lost that girl)
It'll be okay
Yeah, she rocked my world (Such a pity, I'm sorry that you lost that girl)
More than any other girl (Such a pity and I'm sorry that you lost that...) All right

All: Dude, such a pity and I'm sorry that you lost that girl
And I'm sorry that you lost that girl

Austin played the opening chords quickly. Everyone else joined in as he jumped in the air for a few seconds.

The sun is in the sky and it is gonna be a glorious day, huh
Rocky: So, pour yourself a coffee, put your clothes back on, and tell me your name
Austin: Now, hearts are getting broken, but I guess it's what they call growing up
We don't expect results because the British kids just don't give a...

Ellington: (Fuck!)

Rocky: Nothing really matters, nothing really matters at all
Austin: When all your dreams are shattered, everything is beautiful
Nothing ever happens, they think we waste our lives,
But they're wrong, we're moving on
Yeah!

"Sing along!"

All: (Everybody knows) Austin: You know the shit's going down
(Everybody knows) Oh, when Sailor Jerry's around
(Everybody knows) We're gonna die in this town
Yeah

Hey! Whoa!

Rocky: My voice is gone from screaming and my body aches from giving you hell (Na na na na, na na na na)
You've gotta know the truth that we're not in this for the cash, but it helps (Na na na na)
Whoa (Na na na na)

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters at all
Austin: When all your dreams are shattered, everything is beautiful
Nothing every happens, they think we waste our lives,
But they're wrong, we're moving on
Yeah

All: (Everybody knows) Austin: You know the shit's going down
(Everybody knows) Yeah, when Sailor Jerry's around
(Everybody knows) We're gonna die in this town
Austin: Rocky!

Rocky played the solo.

Oh!
Yeah!

Austin raised is hands above his head to get everyone to clap with the drumbeats.

All: Everybody knows (Hey!)
Everybody knows (Oh yeah!)
Everybody knows
Austin: Oh, we're gonna die in this town

You know, you know
All: (Everybody knows) Austin: You know the shit's going down
(Everybody knows) Yeah, when Sailor Jerry's around
(Everybody knows) We're gonna die in this town

Whoa,
Woo!
Whoa,
Hey!
Whoa,
Hey!
Austin: We're gonna die in this town

They finished, then Ryker went into the next song on his bass after Austin put his fist in the air, then pointed back to Ellington to cue up his drum playing.

All: Please, please, Lindsay please!

Rocky: Set the scene, I think I'm in love now
Your eyes are green, you come from above now
Easy, girl, I think we're alone now
Let's get the motion in the ocean, so turn off your phone now

I want to put my hands on your skin
Underneath the clothes that you're in
So, kick off your shoes, let the fun begin

Yeayeayeah

All: Please, please, please!
Rocky: C-c-c-c'mon with me now,
Please, please, please!
M-m-m-must be a dreamer
Please, please, please!
I wanna get with you

All: Please, please, Lindsay, please!

Austin: The sun sets the color of fire (Ba ba da, ba ba da)
You red head, you're taking me higher
I'm not sure what's happening to me
If you were god, then I would believe
You love yourself more than you love me, oh!

All: Please, please, please!
Austin: C-c-c-c'mon with me now
Please, please, please!
M-m-m-must be a dreamer
Please, please, please!
I wanna get with you

Please, please, please!
C-c-c-c'mon with me now,
Please, please, please!
Oh, you got me thinking of England
Please, please, please!
I wanna get with you, yeah you know I do!

All: Please, please, Lindsay, please!
Please, please, Lindsay, please!

The crowd: Ooooh, babababadoooh
Ooeeeh

Rocky: Girl, I'm talking to you now
Come on!
Girl, I thought that you knew now

Austin: I wanna run my hands through your hair, (Hands through your hair)
Cover the room with your underwear, (Your underwear)
We'll be making out like we don't care oh yeah

Ryker: C-c-c-c'mon with me now,
M-m-m-must be a dreamer
I wanna get with you!

All: Please, please, please!
Austin: C-c-c-c'mon with me now
Please, please, please!
Oh, you got me thinking of England
Please, please, please!
I wanna get with you, yeah you know I do!

All: Please, please, Lindsay, please! Austin: Yeah
Please, please, Lindsay, please! Austin: Yeah!
Please, please, Lindsay!
Please, please, Lindsay!
Please, please, please, please me!

They played the final chord.

Austin then began the next song.

"Everybody, clap with the drumbeats!"

Austin: The world would be a lonely place
Without the one that puts a smile on your face
So, hold me till the sun burns out,
I won't be lonely when I'm down

"Clap!"

'Cause I've got you to make me feel stronger
When the days are rough and an hour seems much longer

Rocky: I never doubted you at all
The stars collide, will you stand by and watch them fall? (By and watch them fall)
So, hold me till the sky is clear
And whisper words of love right into my ear

'Cause I've got you to make me feel stronger
When the days are rough and an hour seems much longer
Yeah! When I got you, oh, to make me feel better
When the nights are long, they'll be easier together

Austin: Looking in your eyes, hoping they won't cry
And even if they do, I'll be in bed so close to you
Rocky: To hold you through the night and you'll be unaware
That if you need me, I'll be there

Austin: Yeah, I got you,
Oh, to make me feel stronger
When the days are rough and an hour seems much longer
Rocky: Yeah! When I got you to make me feel better
When the nights are long, they'll be easier together
Yeah, when I got you…

Rocky & Ryker began the final song of the evening.

Austin: The worst is over and the sky is clear
And there's not a place on Earth I'd rather be than here

Ellington joined in on drums.

But on the horizon, as the morning breaks,
I can see a brand new day that's full of new mistakes

He joined in on guitar.

They tell me that only the strong survive
I don't know if we'll make it through the night
I guess I'll see you in the afterlife
They tell me that only the strong survive

Rocky: Gotta keep on running, stay on the attack
'Cause the day you quit's day you wish you had it back

Austin: They tell me that only the strong survive
I don't know if we'll make it through the night
I guess I'll see you in the afterlife
They tell me that only the strong survive

Ryker & Rydel: Ooh

Austin: If we're gonna die tomorrow, (Ahh)
At least we can say
Life has been all right
Yeah, it's been all right (Ooh)
Rocky: We can beg or we can borrow, (Ahh)
But in the end, everything's all right
Everything's all right, all right

It got quiet, minus the guitars.

Austin: Every time we get up, are we destined to fall?
And I'm asking myself, is it worth this at all?
Every corner we turn, we just run into walls
Because living here feels like a kick in the balls

Every time we get up, are we destined to fall? Rocky: (Destined to fall)
And I'm asking myself, is it worth this at all (Worth this at all)
Every corner we turn, we just run into walls
Because living here feels like a kick in the balls

They played the instrumental, then played the last chorus of the song.

They tell me that only the strong survive
I don't know if we'll make it through the night
I guess I'll see you in the afterlife
They tell me that only the strong survive, yeah!
Hey!

All: Na na na na, na na na na na, na na na
Na na na na, na na na na na, na na na
Austin: Na na na na na
All: Na na na na, na na na na na, na na na

Austin: They tell me that only the strong survive! Yeah!

"THANK YOU, O2! We'll see you next time!" Austin yelled & the went off the stage.

PEACE

A video came on with Rocky playing an acoustic & Austin playing his electric while they were sitting on chairs, but the only one illuminated by a spotlight was Rocky. He sang while they played softly.

Lately, I've been-I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But, baby, I've been-I've been prayin' hard
Said, no more counting dollars,
We'll be-we'll be counting stars

Ellington came in on the drums & they stood up while the lights all came on. Rocky switched to an electric & he & Austin played while Ryker clapped in the air.

"Hands in the air! Keep those hands going…& get ready to sing!" Ryker said into the mic.

Ryker: I've seen this life like a swinging vine,
Swing my heart across the line
In my face is flashing signs
Seek it out and ye shall find

Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
I don't think the world is sold,
Just doing what we're told

Austin: I feel something so wrong
Doing the right thing
I feel something so right
Doing the wrong thing
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Ryker: Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

They kicked up the energy with their instruments.

Rocky: Lately, I've been-I've been losing sleep Ryker: Hey!
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But, baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard Ryker: Hey!
Said, no more counting dollars,
We'll be counting stars

Ryker: Let's go!

Rocky w/ Austin: Lately, I've been-I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard
Said, no more counting dollars,
We'll be-we'll be counting stars

"Ladies & gentlemen, give it up for The Vamps!" Ryker shouted & they came on to the stage.

"What's up boys!?" Austin said.

Bradley: I feel the love, and I feel it burn
Down this river, every turn
Hope is our four-letter word
Take that money, watch it burn

Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold

"Make some noise!"

Austin: I feel something so right
Doing the wrong things
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Ryker: Everything that drowns me makes me want to fly

"Let's go!"

A few of them jumped up & down.

Rocky: Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard
Said, no more counting dollars,
We'll be counting stars

All 3: Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard, hey!
Said, no more counting dollars,
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Bradley: "Makes some noise for our friends, everybody!"

Ryker: Oh, take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
W/ Rocky: Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

All: Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

Ryker: Everything that kills me
Makes me feel alive

Rocky & Bradley: Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But, baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard
Said, no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

"Let's go!" Austin shouted.

W/ Austin: Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep (Hey!)
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard
Said, no more counting dollars,
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

All: Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

Take that money, watch it burn,
Sink in the river the lessons I learned

Later
