Sunday 5 December 1993 - Charter Hall, Colchester

Comments: CANCELLED show. A contributor to this site wrote - "The gig at Colchester was one that I was involved with. I remember going out to put posters and flyers up at the University of Essex campus in Colchester with the promoter. A couple of weeks later I was told that the gig was off due to contractual problems with the band. Other than that I have no other details as to why the gig was pulled. The venue was to have been the Charter Hall, Cowdray Avenue, Colchester". Another contributor to this site wrote - "I travelled to the gig only to be told it had been cancelled, the venue was a sports centre but I cannot recall the name. The gig is listed as just Colchester on the tour T-shirt. I was not given a reason for the cancellation and judging by the mood of the person on reception, I was not the only person to turn up that night".
