The bands performance is very good and they perform some songs not found on the bootlegs from the other nights such as She's A Mystery To Me (full band version with BB Kings Orchestra aswell) and 11 O' Clock Tick Tock. Bullet The Blu Sky also opens the show! All I Want Is You is also played in full and is not just a mere 20 second snippet. With Or Without You and Out Of Control are also played.


Personally I had to delete everything from Bullet The Blue Sky down to Van Diemans land as all the songs up to Van Diemens Land has this wierd digital swirling thing that made it sound a bit distorted and to me I couldn't really listen to them but the good thing is most of the the surprise songs are played after Van Diemans Land (which is where the swirling in the recording stops) so I just kept all the surprise encores. When the swirling stops it is really really good sound.


Having a brilliant time at the concert!


Very good performance with a wierd setlist order (always good!) and some songs that are not played Very often: She's A Mystery To Me, 11 O' Clock Tick Tock, All I Want Is You (Full Version), Out Of Control. Very good concert!
