28 April 1997
San Diego show
San Diego show - Tough night. Encouraging reviews from Las Vegas, but second shows are tough and rough. This is no exception.

Show day, San Diego. "After the Lord Mayor's parade...", as they used to say in Sheffield. Reviews of the Vegas were, in the main, good. The tabloids raved, the broadsheets were kind. A few wankers had a go, but really not bad overall, which is encouraging. Tonightís show was a little rough - the stage was in a weird place in the stadium and we werenít sold out, so it felt like there was a vast gaping space to one side of the stage.. Second shows are always tough - adrenaline and good will gets you through the first night, then the real work begins.
