I can't certify that none of the above shows were not changed or cancelled, (except Boise), it's too long ago. These dates are taken from the tour itinerary. As you will notice the Boise date followed the Tacoma date. When Boise was cancelled we stayed that day in Tacoma where we went into the studio and recorded three tracks: Embryo (Harper/Garratt/Gibbs), Product Supply (Harper/Garratt/Willer) and Rare Disease (Gibbs). The line up was as the tour line up - Harper/Garratt/Gibbs and Jason Willer."
