While playing the piano for his track, ‘Home,’ Taylor felt the need to ask why the woman was sleeping and found out that she’s wasted, revealed by her son.

Here is the story narrated by Taylor:
“Playing Pop’s for the first time in 20-plus years, I was stoked until I looked out in the audience, and for half the show starting at ‘Samantha’s Gone,’ there was a woman asleep at a fucking table. When I finally inquired about it while I was at the piano during ‘Home,’ her son informed me that she was wasted. After a nudge, she came to, didn’t even realize I was talking to her, and thusly flipped off her son. Oh, and she passed out again until she lit up like a Christmas tree for ‘Through Glass.'”
