This concert was the first to have a slightly changed introduction for World In My Eyes.

Daryl Bamonte recounted some of the more offbeat incidents from the World Violation tour in BONG magazine issue 12:

The majority of shows on the European tour were played in Germany. The gigs in Frankfurt were particularly good [...].

Frankfurt also saw a rare appearance of the “DM 11” football team against the promoters team (full of ex-pros, incidentally). We were being stuffed 6-1 at half-time until Willie Whitelaw, merchandiser, turned on the charm and the final score was 10-9 (to them I think).

Electribe 101 was the support act.
