29 September 1986: Masonic Auditorium, Toledo, USA

There is a review of the concert from the Toledo Blade newspaper here, so it definitely happened. I have now updated the 1986-87 tour page with this “new” date.


The clothing designers in Moods of Norway have posted a picture on their blog of themselves and Hugo Opdal with Apparatjik in Berlin on February 1st. Apparently they will be launching a special Apparatjik clothing collection in Norway in April. Their spelling could use some improvement, though…

And singer Elisabeth Andreassen has posted a picture on her blog of herself and Morten with British/Norwegian group A1 at the concert for Haiti on January 24th.
