According to the official [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Songs_of_Faith_and_Devotion_Live Songs Of Faith And Devotion Live] release's artwork, [[One Caress]] from this concert appears on the album. There is currently no audience recording currently circulating from this date to confirm this information.
 +
 
 +
According to Steve Lyon, who mixed SOFAD Live, [[One Caress]] used for that album was actually recorded on [[1993-10-11 The Summit, Houston, TX, USA]]. Steve is quoted as saying:<ref>Source: Twitter direct message conversation between [https://twitter.com/SteveLyonMusic @SteveLyonMusic] and [https://twitter.com/DMLiveWiki @DMLiveWiki] on February 22, 2018.</ref>

"Well for me I remember recording it in Houston and working on it there with the band, I had a dreadful cold I remember... then flying back to the UK to co-ordinate the SOFAD live album. Those are basically my recollections. I also remember recording it at [[1993-07-31 Crystal Palace Sports Ground, London, England, UK|Crystal Palace]]<ref>Steve Lyon also mixed the FM broadcast of [[1993-07-31 Crystal Palace Sports Ground, London, England, UK]]; an excellent recording of that FM broadcast is available on the concert's page.</ref> with a small orchestra on stage but it wasn't very successful as the musicians removed the mics (bugs as they are called) placed on the instruments between soundcheck and the gig. The result was difficult, more on stage than the recording but they were badly out of tune."

Although Steve was nonspecific about which Houston concert, the [[1993-10-10 The Summit, Houston, TX, USA|first night]] has an audience recording and [[One Caress]] was not performed; thus, the second night must have had the performance of [[One Caress]]. Also, as such, this New Orleans concert may not have necessarily had a performance of [[One Caress]].

According to [http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/depeche-mode/1993/kiefer-uno-lakefront-arena-new-orleans-la-5bd7f38c.html setlist.fm's page for this concert] as well as Jonathan Miller's book [http://www.amazon.com/Stripped-Depeche-Mode-Jonathan-Miller/dp/1847724442 Stripped] (see quote below), Dave suffered from a heart attack near the end of the set and the concert was cut short.
 +
<blockquote>
 +
Less than halfway through the North American leg, during the New Orleans Lakefront Arena show of October 8, Dave Gahan allegedly suffered a heart attack. "It was during the last song," the singer recalled. "I literally couldn't hear anything, so I went off. Something was going on - I couldn't breathe, and the other guys were like, 'We've gotta do an encore!' So Martin and Alan decided to go back and do a song, and the only song they could do off-the-cuff was 'Death's Door'."
 +
</blockquote>
 +
 
 +
Martin Gore explained in the commentary track on the DVD of '101' in 2003:
 +
<blockquote>
 +
On the - I think it must have been the 'Songs of Faith and Devotion' tour, when Dave was pretty bad, and he had like a heart murmur just before we were due on for the encores in New Orleans. And the only thing that Alan and me had ready was this song that we had done, called 'Death's Door', that was really slow and [with] a piano. I remember we had to go back on, and that was our encore!"
 +
</blockquote>
 +
 
 +
Dave recalled in the March 1997 issue of 'Q' magazine:
 +
<blockquote>
 +
"Remember New Orleans? At the end of the gig I couldn't go back for the encore, Mart had to do a song solo while all the paramedics rushed me off to hospital. I'd overdosed, I'd had a heart attack. Next day, we didn't think any more about it."

Andy Fletcher told [http://www.hotpress.com/music/interviews/Personal-Jaysus--The-Full-Depeche-Mode-Interview/20018055.html Hot Press magazine] in March 2017:
 +
<blockquote>
 +
"There were certain gigs [that were lousy]. I remember one of the funniest was when Dave had a heart murmur on... not 'funny'... I don’t know why I’m using that word... queer... he had a heart murmur on stage in New Orleans and he was rushed off into an ambulance, and then we went straight to the aftershow, where we had various lesbian strippers and everything going on. So you could imagine what [the tour] was like."
 +
</blockquote>
 +
 
 +
Martin Gore told [http://www.sfexaminer.com/entertainment/Exploring-the-sober-side-of-Depeche-Mode-52557292.html San Francisco Examiner] in 2009:
 +
<blockquote>
 +
"There were loads of moments [when I realised I had a drinking problem], but they never hit home. I mean, I had seizures one day on a boat in a Louisiana swamp, and fell forward, just by chance. And if I'd have fallen backward, I would've landed in a swamp full of alligators — no joke. But even that didn’t stop me."
