additional information
The band was now clear of the lowlands of Europe and travelling around France, Germany and Italy. The songs had settled and Simple Minds were comfortable and confident with the new arrangements. But that didnít mean the night of the 14th March 1983 was not without incident. Jim started a verbal fight with a couple of "wankers" in the crowd whilst New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84)) was cut off in its prime by a power cut.

In Italia featured a sizeable chunk of that memorable concert, albeit by cutting out a few of the tracks (including the lengthy interrupted New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) and shuffling the remaining songs around. Unfortunately, it used an audience recording as its source, so claps, shouts and cheers all drown the band out. Add to that hiss and distortion and In Italia can be added to the "best avoided" list.
