The recording of this gig is often dated to 2 February 1988, but I don’t think they played that day, and in any case they would have been in Switzerland by then. The three printed sources agree that this date was Wiesbaden, so I’m sure that’s correct.

‘Walkin’ With Jesus’ from this gig is on YouTube, complete with incorrect date:

  1. Here is my eyewitness information and correction. The concert was really on 02.02.1988 and was moved to the much smaller ZickZack Club in Wiesbaden. I was there and recorded it. Probably I have the only mastertape. You can also hear the intimacy of a smaller room on the recording. So the original date (01/21/1988) and venue (Wartburg) were definitely changed and the original published date and venue are wrong for this concert and were not corrected in time. If it had been the Wartburg, the room sound would also have been quite different because of the ceiling height. Hence the confusion for field researchers like you, who today can only rely on tour calendar information in the press. I hope I could help?

  2. You are welcome, Ian! The ZickZack Club probably existed only a short time span (1984-1989). It was the only time I was ever there.
