The performance on November 19, 1998 took place at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, New York, USA.

Controversy[edit]

The engagement saw the tour's first resistance from civic and religious leaders. On October 19, 1998, a month before a planned performance, local activists began calling for a cancellation of the engagement. According to Associated Press, then-Syracuse Mayor Roy Bernardi attempted to block the venue's permit, citing a "moral obligation to the people of Syracuse", without specifying any reason for his objections. Onondaga County officials also attempted to extort the Landmark into halting the event by threatening to withhold $30,000 in county funds earmarked for the venue, prompting the venue's bookers to consider dropping the show altogether. Despite this, representatives for the Landmark started selling tickets on the day it was planned and the performance took place on the arranged date and venue.[1]
