Notes:
This is the first of two consecutive nights Rush played at the Apollo Manchester during the AFTK tour.
This recording cuts off temporarily during the encore chants following 2112, so is missing Working Man, Fly By Night, and In The Mood, then starts again during Neil's drum solo.
There's approximately 5 or 6 seconds cut during the chorus of Cygnus X-1, and a few half-second dropouts throughout this entire recording.
I'm not sure I'd quite say that this ranks among the worst audience recordings I've heard, but overall it doesn't really sound that great at all.
At times it can be pretty hard to listen to, but at other times it seems decently tolerable.
