This brief tour of Europe included the Smiths' only visit in Switzerland. The concert went down well but Morrissey wasn't very talkative. Most of his banter, after the greeting "We're the Smiths, hello!", consisted of song introductions, such as "This is our new single, it's called 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now'.", "This is a song called 'Barbarism Begins At Home' which is true..." or "This is a strange song called 'Miserable Lie'..." On returning to the stage for a third encore Morrissey told the audience "I don't know what to say..." before the band launched into "Pretty Girls Make Graves".


A fair audience recording of this complete concert is circulated on bootleg cds and in digital format on the internet, via at least two different transfers of similar quality.
