The first four tracks were pro-shot for TV. Soundboard audio of the tracks is available below; the video is not currently in circulation.

Munich was actually planned for September 18th but then got postponed to October 13th. As a result, Marseille, which was planned on October 13th, had to be cancelled.

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

The final date of our quite extensive coverage of Germany. As the Bavarian winter winds begin to blow, we board the bus for warmer climates and head south to Spain.

And here is the diary entry by Jody:

Well we are nearly finished with the European leg of the tour - wow it was tiring!! We finally left Germany yesterday to arrive in sunny Spain and are staying in a most beautiful hotel by the beach (many thanks to Mr. Franks, tour manager extraordinaire).

Thanks for the questions for Fletch, he will have a look at them tonight and then send the responses.......remember the winning question (as chosen by Fletch) receives a personally signed tour book and merchandise.

The weather is beautiful, the sea looks lovely and we are flying this afternoon to Zaragoza for the first of our three Spanish gigs. We play Barcelona tomorrow night and then Tim will be DJ'ing at a local club. No doubt it will be a late one for some....

Will let you have an update on the bar football championships..... till next time

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

  • Source 1 is Falko N's good master audience recording; it sounds somewhat reverberated and distant.
  • Source 2 is soundboard audio of the first four tracks of the concert; it's mono and fairly raw sounding.
