  • A late edition to the tour, this show was initially scheduled for 4 September 1988, but moved to the 3rd before being announced on 23 August 1988 together with a later canceled show in Rome on 5 September at the monumental Stadio dei Marmi.
  • On 1 September it became clear that permission for the Rome show at the Stadio dei Marmi could not be given, stating “the stadium was already in fairly advanced state of decay and should not be further threatened by the staging of a rock concert”. Since an alternative venue could not be secured on short notice, the show was canceled, but ticket-holders were offered the possibility to attend the show in 3 September in Modena, about 400 kilometers from Rome, instead. Reportedly only 12,000 tickets were sold for the Modena show, accumulating to 15,000 spectators in total, including the around 3,000 fans that made the journey from from Rome.
