For the Suns, they had appeared in their first Finals five years ago but never could claim a divisional title as their own. Atop the Western Conference standings for the first time, the Suns had earned a bye in the first round of the playoffs; the offense was highlighted by balanced attack, with four starters averaging 15 points or more a game, but none greater than 19.

The Division Bell Tour

The Division Bell Tour was the final concert tour by the English rock band Pink Floyd in 1994 to support their album The Division Bell, released two days before the tour’s start date. Though it was Pink Floyd’s final tour, members of the band have continued to perform the band's songs on solo tours. In 1995 the band released the live album Pulse to commemorate the tour; the Division Bell Tour in 1994 was promoted by Canadian concert impresario Michael Cohl and became the highest-grossing tour in rock music history to that date, with the band playing the entirety of The Dark Side of the Moon in some shows. The first show they played the whole The Dark Side of the Moon was on July 15th, 1994 at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, the first time since 1975 it was played. While preparing for the tour, Pink Floyd spent most of March rehearsing in a hangar at Norton Air Force Base in California; the concerts featured more impressive special effects than the previous tour, including two custom designed airships.

Three stages leapfrogged around North America and Europe, each 180 feet long and featuring a 130-foot arch resembling the Hollywood Bowl venue. All in all, the tour required 700 tons of steel carried by 53 articulated trucks, a crew of 161 people and an initial investment of US$4 million plus US$25 million of running costs just to stage; this tour played to 5.5 million people in 68 cities. At the end of the year, the Division Bell Tour was announced as the biggest tour with worldwide gross of over £150 million. In the U. S. alone, it grossed US$103.5 million from 59 concerts. However, this record was short-lived; the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Metallica, U2, The Police, Bon Jovi, Roger Waters and Madonna remain the only acts to achieve a higher worldwide gross from a tour when adjusting for inflation. The tour was sponsored in Europe by Volkswagen, which issued a commemorative version of its top-selling car, the "Golf Pink Floyd", one of, given as a prize at each concert, it was a standard Golf with Pink Floyd decals and a premium stereo, had Volkswagen's most environmentally friendly engine, at Gilmour's insistence.

These shows are documented by the Pulse album, video and DVD. The final concert of the tour on 29 October 1994 turned out to be the final full-length Pink Floyd performance, the last time Pink Floyd played live before their one-off 18-minute reunion with Roger Waters at Live 8 on 2 July 2005, their performance at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on July 18, 1994 would go on to be the last Pink Floyd concert in North America. This would be Nick Mason's last concert tour before commencing his Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets tour in 2018 - twenty-four years later.

Flim Flam began training with rider Sue Blinks at two and a half years old, he was owned by Fritz Kundrun and Renate Kundrun, who bought him hoping he could be an approved Hanoverian breeding stallion as well as a dressage hopeful. However, after he placed third at the Bundeschampionate, Kundrun realized the horse could not be successful in dressage as a stallion, so Flim Flam was castrated and went on to succeed as a dressage horse.
