It is rumored that the show was recorded.

  • There was originally a single show scheduled for this or the previous day at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY, according to the band's tour itinerary. Instead, the band played this show and the previous show.
  • Dave jammed on the intro to the Gene Simmons song "Living In Sin."
  • Half Japanese and Everett True joined the band onstage for a noisy jam on "I Wanna Be Your Dog." Jad Fair did the vocals through a distorted megaphone, Gilles-Vincent Rieder and Krist pounded on a floor tom, Dave wandered around with a bass that may or may not have been plugged in, Mark Jickling played Pat's guitar, and Kurt played the drums.
  • At the end of the show, Pat handed a guitar to Jad Fair's stepson Simon and coaxed him into smashing it. Simon also played guitar during the noisy jam.
