  • This recording is missing Closer To The Heart and A Farewell To Kings, which would've been between Hemispheres and La Villa Strangiato. This recording is also missing 2112, Working Man, Bastille Day, and In The Mood, which would've been between La Villa and Neil's drum solo. All of these missing songs apparently were recorded, but intentionally left off the copy tape made by the original taper.
  • There is a short cut at the beginning of The Sphere section of Hemispheres, but otherwise, all the songs we do have are complete.
  • The final instrumental flourishes from the band also seem to have been cut from the end of Neil's drum solo, so we don't hear Geddy say goodnight and close out the concert.
  • We have located another tape of this concert that contains all songs up through 2112, which will be digitally transferred and shared here as soon as possible.
  • Circumstances was dropped from the setlist towards the end of the Hemispheres tour for all European dates, which would have been from April 23 and onward.
