The Thirteenth Anniversary tour was a triumph both financially and critically for the Residents. It was also the last time Snakefinger would work with them, as he died of a heart attack in 1987. The official album release of The Thirteenth Anniversary Show in 1987 was a recording of the show in Japan. There was also a recording of the show in the United States that was released to UWEB fan club members in the late 1980s, and various outtakes and bootlegs of other performances of the show exist as well.
The track list below is for the cassette edition, as this was also the track list used for the ESD reissue in the late 1990s.
