Stabbing Westward and Primal Scream were the support acts.
Back at the hotel in Houston, in the middle of one of [Primal] Scream's myriad midnight jamming marathons, Denis persuades Super Dave [Gahan] to get his [harmonica] out.

A monster of confectionery and they STILL had trouble fitting all those candles on… (This year’s party was a little better though…).
