Unfortunately, not many recordings exist. The only heavily bootlegged show is the Seattle one, it appeared under fake dates on many bootlegs. Also I'm not sure about the dates and venues from 23th to 27th February. These dates were taken from the tour itinerary but in many concertographies are different.

As the flyer in the memorabilia section proves, there was a concert planned for Dayton, USA on January 29 but was cancelled due to snow - winters in that part of the USA are really bad, usually with large amounts of snow.

A couple of gigs in March had to be cancelled too. Also all the official concertographies mixed up a couple of dates (Dallas, Houston etc.) - I believe my version is correct; I have the crew itinerary and some ticket stubs too :-)
