Later in 1997 Dead Or Alive returned to New York and gave a concert at the club Twirl, using a similar set list to above. In spring, 1998, they returned once again for two dates as a warm up for the European tour. One of these dates, in Philadelphia, was only Pete on stage, but the New York show restored the full line up. The Paris concert (also a "Pete Only" event) was broadcast on the MCM network. These 1998 shows feature a different, shorter set list but do add "My Heart Goes Bang". (Performed for the first time in 6 years.)
