According to Dave Noonan (who was there), the show, "was cancelled due to Jez (I think) having a tooth knocked out(?)or at least so we heard... so the Happy Mondays played with the Railway Children as support & the whole place went up - they were fighting in lumps after Bez slapped a Blackburn casual who was 'sig heiling' on stage..."] Thanks for the memory Dave!!

Unfortunately said memory may not be totally accurate, as there is in fact a recording from that show!
