    It has been documented that this concert only ran for four minutes before being terminated due to the audience running onto the stage. The fans were then forced out of the venue and into the local area, reportedly causing £10,000 worth of damage.
    During the Danish leg of the tour, an argument between Roger Daltrey and Keith Moon erupted, culminating in the group unanimously sacking Roger. It was only due to The Who's busy schedule that Roger was reinstated.
