  • One of the biggest non-festival gigs the band have ever played.
  • 13,000 tickets were sold on the first day of sale.
  • Terry Hall performed on "Nite Klub".
  • Many fans, especially those only familiar with Parklife and The Great Escape, were left rather bemused by the heavier new tunes "Chinese Bombs" and "Song 2".
  • Damon's tracksuit top read "ICELAND", a country where the band were shortly going to record some of their new album.
  • Broadcast on BBC Radio 1.
