Show notes- There was a small skip in the minidisc master in FOABP, which I trimmed out, I'll leave it to the picky ones to find it, but most will not hear it. I did not notice any other such anamolies but I also have only finished recording this 15 hours ago! Steven had a great story about a girl who they had met at this venue in 2005 as she was a huge fan and she died tragically 12 days after meeting the band. He dedicated Blackest Eyes to her, I didn't know what he was going to say so I took the opportunity with him talking to switch my minidiscs to not miss any music which worked, you can hear him say before when the song starts. 'this is for Arielle' and I believe her mother was in the crowd.

The Rave hisorically has had lousy sound from the many concerts I had attended in the past, but since my last show there, they have put it a new sound system and it seemed much improved from my memories of the muddy sound there. I was pretty happy with how this came out!

If anyone has recorded the opening act 3 on this tour, please post it! I really wish I would have as they were very interesting and we quite liked them.

Thanks go out to the Porcupine Tree community as I only became a fan of the band by downloading a show on DIME and after one show I was an instant fan. I have been getting all the studio material and was glad I could get to see them live and add a live show back to the DIME community, cheers mates!

Enjoy and share freely.
