What an amazing show this was. I enjoyed every moment of it specially the first half when finally i had a chance to listen to some of my favourite tracks live for the first time.The band was in good mood, everybody enjoying the stage. The venue really packed (not sure if it was sold out but if it wasn't was close enough)and the audience was there for them.
I recorded from the second balcony, way up high but it turned out way better than i expected. I thought the sound was good for a venue like that size and i was also in line with the high stacks of the PA and that i believe it helped a bit :-) no big audience noises during songs. Only Freakshow is cut and i left a 1 second gap in the track because i did not stop recording during encore break and then the recorder did the rendering for the track... still no feeling lost :-)
Enjoy and share
