  • This is the first of two consecutive nights Rush played in Newcastle during the AFTK tour, confirmed when Geddy says "thank you Newcastle, we'll see you tomorrow" at the end of Cinderella Man.
  • This is a great sounding audience recording from the AFTK tour, and even includes the frequently missing second encore with Cinderella Man.
  • There were a ton of left/right channel drop outs and volume fluctuation during Bastille Day, though luckily the remainder of this recording was mostly audibly stable. For the recommended version, I've copied over segments from the opposite channels to fill the drop outs, and amplified the fluctuating areas, to smooth out everything as best as possible. My fixes are far from perfect, but to me personally it sounds so much better now, as the flaws are not nearly as noticeable.
