It was postponed after the band all walked out on stage and told the crowd it was too dangerous to perform. They apologized and promised the show would be made up. The 1st October date at the Coliseum Arena was this "make up" show.

notes: Towards the end of the show Michael confronts an annoying Nazi supporter. Both 'Feeling Gravitys Pull' and 'Gardening At Night' were cut short because the audience was getting out of hand. I think it was one guy who was being a jerk, and it sounds like he got kicked out. After '1,000,000', Michael does some a capella that includes what will be lyrics from 'Finest Worksong' and 'King Of Birds'.

encore 2: Harpers / Begin The Begin / Strange / Funtime / Toys In The Attic / After Hours
notes: Because of a leaky roof at some point in the day or two before the gig the event organizers were concerned about water damage to the auditorium floor. For this reason a large, square section of the floor directly in front of the centre of the stage was sectioned off. This meant that the crowd couldn't get very close to the band for most of the show. Luckily near the end Michael took his chances and jumped down (with a long mike cord) and sang the last few songs right up next to the audience on the floor at floor level.

notes: Mitch Easter guests on 'We Walk' and 'Funtime'. Michael sings a snippet of a children's song 'Incy Wincy Spider' (Incy Wincy Spider crawled up the spout, along came the rain and washed the spider out...) before 'We Walk' and again during the song. He appears however to be singing 'Ricky Ticky Spider' - maybe it was a regional variation, maybe Michael's just being weird.
