From Tourography...http://www.ectours.de/
The first of the two concerts planned in Katowice "proved traumatic for Eric Clapton. As fans rushed 
the stage to get a better view, the security guards forcibly removed them, spraying them with tear gas. House lights 
were turned on to reveal a row of security guards. 
... Eric was totally powerless because of the language barrier. 
No encore was performed and the next night's concert was cancelled at the last moment." 
[Roberty: The Complete Chronicle, p. 95]

Tourography:According to Mark Roberty's book, 
"The Complete Chronicle", there was only one show in Jerusalem on October 27. There exists a tape claimed to be recorded 
on October 29 in Jerusalem. During this tour Eric used to play (at least) two concerts in several cities, so it's not unlikely that 
he performed two shows in Jerusalem, too. The happening of this October 29 concert is solely based upon the audience 
recording which, of course, may be originated from the October 27 show, being labeled incorrectly.
