Details:

The Party is played a bit differently here than it was at the Marquee Club earlier in the month. It begins with the "Sarniatown Reggae" section, and then they play the rest of the song as normal.

On this night the band do a rare instrumental take on the cowboy classic Ghost Riders In The Sky.

Before he introduces A Million Vacations, Kim draws a ticket stub from a box to give a lucky fan a trip to "The Bahamas or Mexico." While implying the winner is a groupie, he joked that they'll "go down south" with Dave Myles. The winner was actually a 14 year old kid. The theatre was full of beach balls during the song.
