[Updated: August 12, 2001]

27-08-1988 / Syracuse, NY / New York State Fairgrounds Grandstand / USA
Setlist same as: 11-08-1988, but without Get Up Stand Up during One World.
Before Englishman In New York: "Nice to be back in Syracuse. How do you feel tonight? Over here how do you feel? Over here? People in the back, how do you feel?".
Before If You Love Somebody Set Them Free: "This next song is dedicated to a man who is 70 years old, who has been in prison for 25 years. This man has been working [??]. This man lives in South Africa and this man's crime is that he's black. This song is dedicated to Nelson Mandela. This song is dedicated to all children in South African jails".
The weather during the outside show was bad. Before Consider Me Gone Sting sang a short part of Singing In The Rain.
During the introduction of Consider Me Gone: "Every time I sing this song I think about Ronald Reagan. I think about George Bush. I think our war hero Dan Quale. This song is called Consider Me Gone".
Before Home On The Range: "OK, I want to you sing a song, what I learned when I was three years old".
