Allegedly, there were problems with Dave's mic during the first five songs.

Here is the diary entry by Jody:

Sunday came around very quickly, now its off to Philadelphia to play at the Spectrum. Was a little bored in the morning so decided to run the marathon then left for the venue with the band at around 2 p.m., avoiding all the other runners.

Sound check and dinner. Everyone was very happy as we got our espresso machine back, so we now get some strong coffee...

Started taking pictures with the new camera - the one with the dinosaur and egg was a test picture from my hotel room.

Gig was good and the crowd were most receptive. VH-1 continued to shoot for their special [after interviews with the band] and were very very happy.....

Jonathan, the band's manager was interviewed too and was looking extremely cool in his suit. No hints about his interview - just tune into VH-1 on the assigned [broadcast] date.

Stabbing Westward was the support act.
