Setlist same as: 11-08-1988, but without Get Up Stand Up during One World and Consider Me Gone was omitted.
Attendance: 22,000; sellout.
Sting's show was the first ever event in the brand new Palace of Auburn Hills.
Before Englishman In New York: "It's nice to be back so soon. This next song demands some kind of apology. It's called I'm Englishman In New York, which is half a lie. Yes, I'm English, but this certainly isn't New York. Right? But if you sing it with I got a rise out of it. Let me have a look at you".
Before Bring On The Night: "OK, what do you think of the Palace? What does it sound like out there? It sounds OK? Now I played in almost every gig in this town. I played Bookies and everything in between. This song is called Bring On The Night".
