Notes: 

From the Official Slowdive Newsletter #1, page 1, 1994:

In May, we went over to Canada courtesy of a nice promoter who paid for our flights & accomodation [sic]! We opened for James in Toronto. It was at the Ontario Place, which was like this sort of amusement park. The venue was outdoors, around 3,000 people were there when we went on, the stage was circular and it actually revolved as we played! This was one of those bizarre experiences that I’ll never forget! Christian said it made him feel sick!"

Notes: 

From the Official Slowdive Newsletter #1, page 1, 1994:

The following night we did our own headline show at a small club called Lee’s Palace. A sold out show (around 600 people). This was excellent fun, Christian took it upon himself to stage dive at the end of the set. There’s a first time for everything! We stayed on for a few days holiday, and on the last night we saw The Beastie Boys! I love ‘em!

From the Slowdive Official Website

21st May 1994, at Lee’s Palace in Toronto, Canada. We’d finished our set and rather uncharacteristically for the time, Christian had put down his guitar, picked up a large union flag that we’d been given (Britpop was at its height back then), held it aloft, and dived (slowly) into the crowd. Although we didn’t know it at the time, that was to be the last live performance of any kind by Slowdive.
