Here is Daryl Bamonte's entry for the famous Devotional Tour Diary, published in Bong magazine in 1994:
A security man walked onstage just before the encores with the biggest birthday cake I've ever seen. Of course, as I said in Rotterdam, Alan would have another birthday before this tour was out. A monster of confectionery and they STILL had trouble fitting all those candles on... (This year's party was a little better though...).
From the September 1994 issue of British 'Select' magazine:
Back at the hotel in Houston, in the middle of one of [Primal] Scream's myriad midnight jamming marathons, Denis persuades Super Dave [Gahan] to get his [harmonica] out. Throb strums out the frayed opening chords to 'Sad And Blue' and Gahan's in business, parping soulfully behind the lonesome Gillespie/Johnson duet. It turns out to be a long night.
Stabbing Westward and Primal Scream were the support acts.
