Neil basically performed almost the whole "Dizzy Heights" album with the exception of "Pony Ride", and "Strangest Friends". He also represented his previous solo albums, Finn Brothers, Crowded House and Split Enz in a set which was roughly twice as long as the hour promised.

 

Said he would like to find a sponsor to enable him to take the strings on tour.
Gave credit to Bob Clearmountain who was in the audience for a keyboard motif which Bob suggested upon hearing the final mix of "Fall At Your Feet".

Neil's drummer had used a field recorder to tape the traffic noise on La Cienega which he played into a microphone to replicate the traffic sounds on "Lights Of New York" - this seemed to please Neil a lot as he wasn't expecting it.

 

Sebastian Steinberg augmented the strings for the final two songs in their portion of the set and he returned for most of the songs which followed Grant's arrival on stage, playing Sharon's part on "Flying In The Face Of Love" which Neil had just taught him.Mark Hart returned for "Distant Sun" and "Private Universe".

Seeing Grant, Sebastian and Mitchell on stage brought back memories of their many cameos at the old Largo location.
