Anne's Song single ad gig listing (lists as 20th)
UEA Gig List (22nd) - £4.50
UEA gig list lists Sugarcubes as playing 20th

NME Magazine, 30th April 1988 Page 43 news item: "FAITH NO MORE have added three dates to their forthcoming British tour and have changed the details of two others. The extra shows are at Leeds University (May 16), Liverpool Royal Court Theatre (17) and Norwich UEA (20) while the Glasgow show on May 14 is now at QMU and the date of the Birmingham Hummingbird show has been changed to May 19."

The Guardian, 20 May 1988, page 37 Arts section - indicates "Sunday" (ie. the 22nd) was a gig at Portsmouth Basins (8pm) - that gig isn't listed here: Basin's gig history
Description:
After We Care A Lot, Chuck: "Thank you goodnight it's been wonderful Norwich"
Puffy: "I just want to say that uh I especially care a lot about the fucking asshole that stole my snare drum"
Bill: "Now it's going to be a very unhappy show, and you guys paid for it"
Chuck: "Now you have to hear me play guitar"

During New Beginnings and Stairway To Heaven someone in the band says "Does anyone remember laughter?" which is a reference to some particularly crap Robert Plant stage banter.

In Sweet Dreams intro: "Thank you Norwich. Norwich? Crotch itch? This is a uh... Song. It's about a group of midgets that live only to please Jim"
Before Anne's Song the band asks the crowd to yell loud for Mike because he's angry about his snare drum being stolen.
