Additional comments Very good sounding recording, but unfortunately it's only a small part of the show. The intro contains the clear message:

"Ladies and gentlemen. Can I have your attention for a short announcement with regards the show this evening. The use of video cameras and mobile phones during the peformance has become a major irritation for fans and a distraction for Mark and the band. We don't want to restrict your enjoyment tonight, however any person caught filming will be removed from the building. Thank you." 

Once the security saw the person who was just (audio!) recording this show, he was taken out of the venue accused of filming. After Sailing to Philadelphia you can hear the stewart saying "Excuse me..." After some discussion, they let the person return to the venue, but forbid any further recording. Too bad because the sound of this recording is very good and the show featured special guest Joe Brown (Mark and Joe played together Picture of you and Donegan's gone).  A complete version of this show can be found on this recording: Fourth night at the Royal Albert Hall 2008 Each of the six shows at the Royal Albert Hall were in aid of a charity and Mark Knopfler made a donation to that specific charity. The charity of this show was for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.
