In Minute 107 of The Whole Shebang, Mike and Jenny sit through the rest of Tommy Stone’s presser, talk about massive stadium tours of yesteryear, including Bowie’s Glass Spider Tour in 1987 and U2’s Zoo TV Tour in 1992, the spectacle involved in these tours, on ‘80s Broadway, and on ‘80s digital compact discs, Mike’s first gig: a pompous Zoo TV U2 and a fractious about-to-break-up Pixies opening for them, Jenny’s desperate hatred of U2, and then it’s back to Tommy Stone’s press conference, Arthur’s reaction to both his fellow “journalists” and Tommy Stone’s showmanship, Arthur’s “outing” of Tommy in Reynolds’s America and what it means for the metaphors of the 1980s gay experience, Tommy’s backstage arrangements and how they differ from 1970s decadence, Tommy’s resemblance to a televangelist, the moment where Tommy sees Brian in his own Dorian Gray cathode-ray image, the grim bar where Arthur ends up after the gig, and Mike waxes rhapsodic on the genius of Arkanoid.
