*29th/30th May: The gig planned for Nantes on 29th May was cancelled after David received the sum of $1.5 million dollars from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to perform at The US '83 Festival in Glen Helen Park, San Bernardino, CA on the 30th. This performance wasn't part of the Serious Moonlight Tour.
