In '101', Dave can be seen entering the dressing room right after the concert, and talks about his vocal performance:

"I couldn't hit any high notes at all. Also, I had real trouble with the sound, because it was so hard, my vocals were so hard. I think that, when it's like that, you tend to sing out more, because there's no actual beat if it's loud, but you can't hear... It was really loud tonight on stage. But also, [I will have] a couple of days off, I am feeling really tired at the moment, so that's probably a lot to do with it as well. But it's nowhere near as bad as it was in San Francisco, I couldn't even speak then. But tonight I'm gonna have to do me steroids and stuff, puffer, I'm gonna do that tonight again. The stuff that the doctor gave me in San Francisco. You know, like someone who has asthma-attacks uses? But it's steroids, so it straight away hits your vocal cords and peps 'em up."

According to the Poughkeepsie Journal, this concert was sold out.

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark was the support act.
