  • Eric Leeds was absent from this performance as he was tired after the day’s show and a photo-shoot Prince and the band did in the afternoon.
  • 'Real' tickets for this show were not issued. Instead there were tickets for a Gregory Isaacs show (11 April 1988 Edenhal, Amsterdam), stamped on the back with the date. It’s entirely possible that other leftover, unused Mojo concert tickets from unrelated acts (stamped in a similar manner) were also used. Some patrons were also let in with a Lovesexy Tour backstage cloth sticker with 18 August stamped or written on.
  • Prince started off the show on the white Auerswald model C guitar, wearing a black cape over a transparent top and sheer pants with bikini briefs from the Alphabet St. video. For Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) he switched to the 'Blue Angel' cloud guitar. There was a break following Housequake after which Prince returned in a lilac suit with Minneapolis on the sleeve and a plain white shirt that he wore open. Another encore break followed between Forever In My Life and Still Would Stand All Time. It is not clear what Prince wore at that point.
  • Sheila E.’s drums were a black TAMA kit, provided by the venue and different from the regular black aftershow kit, likely due to the small dimensions of the stage. Boni Boyer only sang and did not have her keyboards set up, as there was also no room for them on stage.
