Allegedly, there were keyboard problems during Policy Of Truth, and there was keyboard failure at the beginning of Barrel Of A Gun meaning that the first verse wasn't sung properly.

Here is the diary entry by Jez Webb from Bong magazine issue #40:

The giant white ball (surprisingly) on the outskirts of the city plays host to us tonight. This impressive building is packed as another sell out show gets underway. Unfortunately the cold that has been going through the touring party finally claims Dave. Twenty years in the business, a small cold isn’t going to stop him and he battles on through the set. Mr. Anton Corbijn makes an appearance to take some live shots. I’m sure he’ll turn up again though… he needs the practice so he can get a couple in focus at least.

And here is the diary entry by Jody:

Sorry about the delayed entry for Stockholm, it was just that we traveled and gigged three days in a row, at the end of which I went to Emma B's birthday (the supermodel - who is a lovely person) and then collapsed in the early hours.

However having said that, it must be said that the fans in Stockholm were the best, the response was incredible and being the first time on this tour that the band had done three gigs in a row their support was extremely well received.

Purity was the support act. Tim Simenon DJed before and after Purity's set.
