- According to both Mace Beyers and Sean Dowdell, this was one of the band's biggest shows ever. However, according to Grey Daze's manager Kerry Rose, the show was a total bust, because, according to him, "only about 300 people showed up".
- The show's initial press release says: "Earth Day '96 Festival: Earth Day Arizona celebrates the 26th annual observance of Earth Day (Monday, April 22) with an environmental fair from 11:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Desert Sky Pavilion, 2121 North 83rd Avenue.

- The ad from April 17th, 1996 issue of Arizona Republic also states "The event features more than 20 local entertainment acts, children activities, a trash art contest, face painting, jugglers and educational booths".
- This midday show was the first one of two band's concerts on the same day.
