Dave had massive problems with his voice, resulting in a few songs being dropped. Allegedly, Dave also sings the second verse of Never Let Me Down Again instead of the first one.

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

The band are halfway through “It’s No Good” and all is not well. Dave’s voice is beginning to crack. Hot honey and lemon is run out to him between songs until he gets a break when Martin takes over to sing a few numbers. Reminiscent of a boxing match Dave staggers to his corner to be patched up. Several lozenges and soothing brews and embrocations later he returns to courageously finish the set.

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