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

A mass crowd, shoe-horned into the hall are rowdy from the off. A good noisy gig, which was enjoyed by the entire band. I even noticed a few people from Poland, maybe not a shock to you… so okay they were smiling!!

And here is the diary entry by Jody:

We left Stockholm this after, and had a long flight (2.5 hours) to Prague. We got here, and now everyone has gone to a local restaurant.

Last night, Anton Corbijn was taking photos of the show.

We don't envy the crew at the moment. They are driving 936 miles from Stockholm to Prague!

We have our gig tomorrow in the beautiful city of Prague tomorrow.


The gig in Prague was fantastic, the band were in top form and the performance was one of their best so far. The audience reaction (all 16,000 of them) was brilliant, with fans singing along to all the songs.

Tim S. DJ'd at a club later called Roxy, where he played an excellent set and packed the dance floor.

We are leaving for Vienna this afternoon for the gig there and then straight onto Berlin.

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

  • Source 1 is Falko N's good master audience recording; unfortunately, bass is frequently overpowering and distorted.
  • Source 2 is a good audience recording, somewhat muffled, but it doesn't have distorted / overpowering bass like Source 1.
