Barbra's opening remarks from Michigan:

'Why Detroit?' ... it's a kind of sentimental journey because Detroit was my first club date outside New York in 1961. Some of you were there? I remember all the friends that I made here and how nice everyone was to me ... and I remember my friends who used to come to every show and watch me and then take me into their homes and feed me. And I never forget people who feed me.

Barbra was in great voice during the Detroit shows. The Concert was still a work in progress, though—Barbra cut the "I'm in the Mood For Love" medley, but kept "What Is This Thing Called Love?" in the show.

Barbra continued to use the long versions of "I'm Still Here," "I'll Know," and "Lover Man." "Evergreen" moved to the first act.

Barbra told Vanity Fair magazine in 1994:

When I was in Detroit, I thought, 'I don't know how I'm going to get through the next 15 shows.' It's pretty exhausting physically. It's a lot of breathing; you have to be in pretty good shape. And I don't work out vocally. I don't practice. It's the most boring thing you can imagine, doing scales. So I just said, 'F-- it, I can't.' I'm too tired the next day after a concert.
