International Ballroom, Houston, TX, USA. October 3, 1997.
The opening bands were Power Man 5000 and Buck O' Nine (a ska band). They played mainly new songs from the Brown Album. Les played most of his songs on his rainbow bass (Carl Thompson six string fretless). Les switched over too a fender four string bass on Tommy The Cat which seemed odd to me because Les usually plays those funky wooden Carl Thompson basses. He stuck The Awakening in the = middle of Tommy The Cat, which was cool. The show seemed really short though.
