1990-10-08 Festhalle, Frankfurt, Germany
Andy Fletcher, in an interview for the 3rd November 1990 issue of NME:
“My idol turned up, did you hear about that? So embarrassing. Steffi Graf. I really do like Steffi Graf, she’s my total idol, she was dancing at the side of the stage in Frankfurt. Apparently she’s going out with Mick Hucknall. Anyway, she came backstage and I just think she’s phenomenal so I can’t, erm...”
Daryl Bamonte recounted some of the more offbeat incidents from the World Violation tour in BONG magazine issue 12:
The majority of shows on the European tour were played in Germany. The gigs in Frankfurt were particularly good, especially as tennis “goddess” Steffi Graf showed up and danced, out of time, on the side of the stage.
Frankfurt also saw a rare appearance of the “DM 11” football team against the promoters team (full of ex-pros, incidentally). We were being stuffed 6-1 at half-time until Willie Whitelaw, merchandiser, turned on the charm and the final score was 10-9 (to them I think).
Electribe 101 was the support act.
