Notes

According to setlist.fm's page for this concert as well as Jonathan Miller's book Stripped (see quote below), Dave suffered from a heart attack near the end of the set and the concert was cut short.

Less than halfway through the North American leg, during the New Orleans Lakefront Arena show of October 8, Dave Gahan allegedly suffered a heart attack. "It was during the last song," the singer recalled. "I literally couldn't hear anything, so I went off. Something was going on - I couldn't breathe, and the other guys were like, 'We've gotta do an encore!' So Martin and Alan decided to go back and do a song, and the only song they could do off-the-cuff was 'Death's Door'.

Dave recalled in the March 1997 issue of 'Q' magazine:

"Remember New Orleans? At the end of the gig I couldn't go back for the encore, Mart had to do a song solo while all the paramedics rushed me off to hospital. I'd overdosed, I'd had a heart attack. Next day, we didn't think any more about it."

One Caress from this concert was used on the official Songs Of Faith And Devotion Live release. There is currently no audience recording currently circulating from this date.
