Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Denver, USA
Tune In - Turn On - Load Out Tour 1991
This concert was originally scheduled to take place at
Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, but was later moved
to the Mammoth Events Center (for reasons we are unaware of).
However, the gig was finally cancelled altogether,
as were the rest of the following tour dates.

Basically, this concert - like the following rest of the American Tour -
was aborted because the American promoters claimed to fear racial
riots due to the fact that The Sisters Of Mercy were to play the same
location with Public Enemy...
We were able to detect at least an announcement
for the original venue and a flyer for the event at the changed location ...
- Thanks for these pictures go to the unknown contributors ...
