Audience recording

* An extremely talkative crowd, which can get quite annoying in spots. Namely, during Gravity Eyelids,' 'A Smart Kid' and 'Strip The Soul.'
* After 'Russia On Ice,' one of Barbieri's keyboards needs to be replaced, as SW states, 'one of our keyboards died. Luckily, we have a spare.' While the keyboard is being replaced, Harrison fills in with two-minute drum solo.
* The band come back to play an unplanned encore of 'Blackest Eyes.' The song starts with a very strange synth sound.
* An excellent performance and setlist, made unique by the drum solo as well as the unplanned encore. It's unfortunate that the recording is marred by such a chatty audience.
