It’s amazing playing these small towns. There’s not a whole lot to do. It’s like these people are starved for this type of thing. And the people are so friendly. We left our door (at our hotel in Burlington, Iowa) cracked and people just kept walking into the room unannounced. I didn’t know what they were doing, but I am getting used to it.” [Journal and Courier, April 30, 1988]

This review illuminates the problem with trusting setlist.fm. Setlist.fm doesn't mention that the show ended with Whole Lotta Rosie, but this review says it does. I trust a review the day after the show more than an anonymous entry to setlist.fm years later...

Axl, introducing Mr. Brownstone:

People say we're trying to talk kids into doing drugs. We're not trying to talk you into anything. But I sure as ain't going to try to talk anyone out of anything, either. […] [I don't] want you to die on anyone. Party, but wake up the next morning [Onstage in Burlington; Burlington Hawk Eye, April 28, 1988]
