• May 2023 Update: Many apoligies for the extended period of inactivity, however many big changes for Rush Archives are now in progress. This should benefit everyone, and propel the site onward in the most realistic way possible. Thank you to those who have been supporting this project, and for being patient with the methods I've so far been operating. Further details will be coming soon.

This recording captures part of Anthem, but for some reason was cut off and is missing A Passage To Bangkok, By-Tor, and Xanadu, starting again right before Something For Nothing.
The encore is also missing from the recording, which would've been Working Man, Bastille Day, In The Mood, and Neil's drum solo.
There is also a very quick cut in the middle of Cygnus X-1.
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 easily the worst sounding recording from the Hemispheres tour, it's hardly listenable due to all the heavy distortion.

Like Newcastle '77 and Upper Darby '77, I'm probably never going to listen to this recording again, it just sounds too nasty to be able to enjoy it even slightly.
Like the two I mentioned above, I don't recommend this recording to anyone unless you actually attended the concert.
