  • When Nirvana came out Kurt had a big bowl of fruit salad from backstage. He pretended to throw into the audience, but he just turned the bowl over right in front of him.
  • At the beginning of the show, a bit of Led Zeppelin's "Dazed And Confused" was jammed on.
  • After "Sliver," the band started playing "Blew," but ended up jamming on the song for a while because Kurt had guitar problems, as he did the entire night. Once Kurt got his guitar working again, the band played all of "Blew" from the beginning.
  • Towards the end of the show, the guitar amps started breaking down and the band started throwing cantaloupe and other fruit at the audience who, in turn, threw it back, according to an attendee.
