Additional comments

Pretty good sounding recording from master. Like all the recordings done in big open air stadiums it misses some bass. It was a really windy day, so sometimes you can listen to some wind noise on the mics. It was recorded about 50 meters from the stage, central position in the middle of the audience. The song News is dedicated to John Lennon and Bob Marley. The song is cut on the last note and first applause. Just before the start of Where do you think you're going? Mark's guitar is broken and he needs to get another one, pretty rare that this happens. Complete concert, containing great new arrangements, experimentating on some parts, very nice.
