  • This is the second of two consecutive nights Rush played in Newcastle in 1979, also being the second concert of the European leg of the Hemispheres tour.
  • 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.
  • This is another one of the weaker audience recordings of the tour, but it is still listenable.
  • This is the first recording of A Passage to Bangkok to feature the "reggae" breakdown after the guitar solo. All versions of the song have this going forward until the Snakes and Arrows Tour.
