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.

"It's a song about uncertainty. We talked a lot about uncertainty when we were making the record. Musically, uncertainty is the antidote to complacency. As far as the song was concerned, all the ad slogans were the real breakthrough for me. My favorite line is 'We're mild and green."
-The Edge on Zooropa
