7 December 1998

Tons of changes this time!
Corrected the title of the Spanish tv show they played on (El Alamo was the club name not the tv show) and filled in the unknown song (thanks to Dani Pindado Sebastian)
A huge amount of changes come courtesy of Chris Hartstonge who has been kind enough to share his vast amount of setlist and dates information with me. From his information I have completely updated 1984 and 1985 with *a lot* more information, adding more support band info, adding extra songs missing from my setlists and correcting setlists that were erroneous, adding missing setlists and added extra shows that I didn't have listed at all. Hopefully Chris will be able to fill me in with a lot more information in the future, thanks Chris!
Also I have begun to add in the encore information, rather than just lumping all the songs together, as I think it is important to know which songs were played in the encore and which were played in the main set as well. So far 1984 and 1985 have been done thanks to Chris' information, hopefully I will be updating other years soon

Well the promo tour is now over, all that's left is the Sesame Street performance in January :)
Added the Modern Rock Live, Conan O'brien and Rosie O'Donnell performances, that's it for the promo tour! Some excellent setlists though, especially the amount of older songs played, it's great to see they've become more willing to play older songs like Perfect Circle and Pretty Persuasion again
