Hi everyone;

I've been meaning to look this up for a while:

During the summer 1998 tour, the "opening band" (after MA dropped out) was a DJ with a projector that had, like, Verve related inspirational slogans projected on screens ("Life is not a rehearsal", etc)

Does anyone know if any documents exist of this?

In order of hope:

1) a video?
2) a detailed description

Thanks very much. If there's interest, I'm happy to post my FLAC DAT recording of the first Hammerstein Ballroom show.

Well I'm certainly interested in your recording of the show! An old friend from Wigan dj'ed for them; Wayne Griggs under the banner: music of the spheres. Dunno if he was party of the 98 tour tho...?

McCabe was NOT. He dropped off in either June or July, this was August 5.

Yes, of course they had the Lion-Man on tour as their DJ in 98.

I was at that Hammerstein Gig. Was supposed to be at MSG, if I'm not mistaken, but moved there once Nick & Massive Attack dropped out. They played with ** Cole & Sampled McCabe. Good gig, but it was apparent it was over at that point.

I appreciate all the help - any idea how I could get more details of the visuals of his sets?

As promised - here's FLACs of the show.

I am sure the man to ask would be Brian Cannon and I just asked him on Twitter...

If you get the Verve Video from 1998, the inlay sleeve has some of the same slogans printed.
