This concert was broadcast by Swiss radio station DRS3 in its entirety. DRS3 recorded this concert and licensed the recording to Westwood One, who produced several promotional CD and LP releases. Please see the Bootleg and commercial variants subpage for more detailed information.

A complete, unedited pre-FM recording from this concert is available, as well as an FM broadcast master, and finally a speed-corrected version of the most popular bootleg variant, "Performance".

DRS3 also interviewed the band on this day, you can listen to it here.

Matt Fretton was the support act.

Note: A 55-minute FM source of this Basel concert circulates labeled as "Hollywood 1985" or "1985-04-01 San Diego". All circulating copies of this broadcast are quite mediocre sounding, and the radio station which broadcast it is unknown. It has most recently been mislabeled as 1985-04-01 San Diego on DIME. The track listing includes the intro, "Something To Do", "Two Minute Warning", "People Are People", "Leave In Silence", "Lie To Me", "New Life", "Shame", Somebody", "Master And Servant" and "Just Can't Get Enough".

  • Source 1 is an unedited, complete pre-FM recording.
  • Source 2 is subwave's master cassette recording of the original DRS3 FM broadcast, with some patches to yield a totally complete recording. It is a very good sounding recording.
  • Source 3 is a good sounding DRS3 FM broadcast recording sourced from the 2xCD "Performance" bootleg. It sounds a little muffled, perhaps due to the noise reduction system used, and it is inferior quality to Source 1. It is provided primarily for collectors.
