Andy Fletcher said in the November 1982 issue of One Two Testing magazine:

"In Philadelphia we went off after the set and they were all shouting for more and suddenly the [Moog] Source started up on its own going 'eep, urp, oop, oop' and making noises. The crowd thought it was the encore."

Andy also said in the 1986 Star Hits Seriously Cool Scrapbook:

"Ah, The East Side Club, 1982. What I remember was that it was the first time Alan toured with us and he has really bright red hair. The club was in the middle of a really old black area and he was walking through and everyone was going "God! It's David Bowie!" Then after the gig, my synth decided to play on its own so we didn't have to do an encore!"

Minimalistics was the support act.
