The boys are on fire!

Excellent performance of many songs here

Many snippets not listed.

In The Midnight Hour has snippeted in Surrender, and Amazing Grace in The Electric Co.

But the best moment here is Bad!

This song is frequently performed with snippets, and here, this snippets are Walk On The Wild Side (normally this is sung at the end of Bad, but here the song was snippet at the beggining), and at the end, the snippets are "I'm Waiting For The Man", "Ruby Tuesday" (2 times, the first in this order, and the second after You've Got To Hide Your Love Away), "Sympathy For The Devil", "Norwegian Wood" and "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away"


Great sound, This bootleg sounds better than many bootlegs with "4 stars"

Recording: Audience microphone - 3.5 stars


This part is only rated, not commented on


Highlights: Surrender (last and great performance), Two Hearts Beat As One, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bad (excellent and with many snippets not listed), Gloria and 40.

Low: Pride is cut at the end (but still was great)
