White Riot?

Just a quick mail, while browsing your excellent site I checked out this gig because it was my first ever gig. I noticed the setlist is missing White riot, I know this because I was on my way out of the hall when they came back on & there was a mad scramble to get back in as the drum intro started.

this gig never took place. the band were scheduled to play Espace Ballad on the 23rd Feb. but this had to be re-sheduled to March 1st as a national lorry drivers strike blocked the trucks carrying the gear at Calais. Tickets stubs however stiff carry the 23rd date for a price of 80F which would have been about £6 at the time.
