Twilight tended to be the opener then, didn't it?  In its essence, it's a thudding and powerful Joke staple, albeit softened up on the album.  I didn't go to Manchester on that tour (possibly my only Joke gig in Manchester was the 89 one at International II) but the London gigs (and Reading festival) were blinders.  It was great when they played most of the new album.... <sigh>

1st time I saw them was the BTATS tour at a half full Manchester Apollo
They were superb.
I think the only song they didn’t play off BTATS was Adorations which disappointed me.
Twilight really stood out, as did Love of the Masses for the bassline.
There was no older stuff, no encore. Nothing off Night Time as I recall although I may be wrong.

Extremities, I recall seeing them a few times close together both before & after it’s release.
I remember thinking how tried & run down Jaz looked at one of them. He struggled through Age of Greed having to pause between lines.
I guess Extremities was all about musically kicking back at the industry, righting the wrongs of OTG, but also paying some bills?

I got the impression that the atmosphere was red hot on the btats tour,
was a bit flat at the end of the extremities tour despite the music because they were going there separate ways again
