Additional comments

Excellent recording! Taken from second generation source, remastered sound. Nice guest performance of Australian saxophone player Paul Williamson! Some funny moments when Mark Knopfler is "talking" to the audience in Japan. There is also a fan in the audience who keeps on shouting for Skateaway. Mark gets really annoyed by this and just when he is announcing Going home, this person shouts again very loud. Mark replied: "Where are you? Skateaway... Skateaway... Come on man, do us a favour: skate away!" Complete concert.
