Most of the gigs were in small clubs. IMO the 'Shove It' album is crap so the tour can't be worse than that :-) Especially I'm In Love With My Car is weak and can't be compared to the extremely powerful Queen version. 'Let's Get Drunk' is probably the best song & also the strongest message of this tour :-)

There were often some minor differences in the setlist. All the German shows included 'Rip It Up' before 'Stand Up For Love' and the early concerts had slightly different order (Feel The Force later & Strange Frontier earlier in the setlist, to name just two examples).

The Osnabrück concert (10.04.1988) was apparently cancelled because The Cross were scheduled to appear in some German TV show that day. The Osnabrück recording that is on the bootleg market is fake (comes from Esslingen in fact).

Typical setlist
01. Love Lies Bleeding 09. Manipulator
02. Cowboys And Indians 10. Let's Get Drunk
03. Love On A Tightrope 11. It's An Illusion
04. Man On Fire 12. Contact
05. Heaven For Everyone 13. Shove It
06. Feel The Force 14. Strange Frontier
07. I'm In Love With My Car 15. Let's Get Crazy
08. Laugh Or Cry 16. Stand Up For Love
