Notes

The The was the support act.

According to Steve Lyon, who mixed the official Songs Of Faith And Devotion Live release, One Caress from this concert was recorded during this concert and was used on the album, despite the album's artwork listing it as being from 1993-10-08 Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, LA, USA. Steve is quoted as saying:[1]

"Well for me I remember recording it in Houston and working on it there with the band, I had a dreadful cold I remember... then flying back to the UK to co-ordinate the SOFAD live album. Those are basically my recollections. I also remember recording it at Crystal Palace[2] with a small orchestra on stage but it wasn't very successful as the musicians removed the mics (bugs as they are called) placed on the instruments between soundcheck and the gig. The result was difficult, more on stage than the recording but they were badly out of tune."

Although Steve was nonspecific about which Houston concert, the first night has an audience recording and One Caress was not performed; thus, this second night must have had the performance of One Caress.
