Additional comments

Wonderful audience recording with very good sound, complete setlist. Great versions of all songs but also some funny moments like for example on Walk of life when Mark Knopfler says: "Anybody recording the show tonight? Yeah, well get this: lalalala..tweedeedeedee...." But the most remarkable and special thing of this concert is of course the Happy Birthday song to Jack Sonni, "sung by 3000 people" to celebrate his 31st anniversary. And that's not all: at the beginning of Going home, Alan and Mark are beautifully embedding the Happy Birthday tune again! Plus a last chord at the end again. A special recording!
