The photocopy of the ticket says "Upper HH 570 enter door 17". I think the recording position was:
Upper grandstand, section HH, seat 570
The recording is not complete. The taper went to the venue with two C-90 tapes in the afternoon and was able to record the soundcheck
(without expecting this before). There was only C-90 tape left after the soundcheck. To capture nearly all of the songs the tape flip
was too late and People Get Ready is incomplete. There are cuts between Bad/October, New Year's Day/Pride, Pride/Angel Of Harlem, When
Love Comes To Town/Love Rescue Me, Love Rescue Me/Bullet The Blue Sky and Running To Stand Still/With Or Without You to save some tape.
This recording has nothing to do with the "Melbourne Memoirs" recordings by Boyacrobat.
Transfer and upload in July 2011.

"We're at a point where production has gotten so slick that people don't trust it anymore... We were starting to lose trust in the conventional sound of rock & roll - the conventional sound of guitar ... those big reverb-laden drum sounds of the '80s or those big, beautiful, pristine vocal sounds with all this lush ambience and reverb. So we found ourselves searching for other sounds that had more life and more freshness."
- The Edge, explaining the band's motivation for seeking a new sound with Achtung Baby
