  • This was Rush's very first performance in Germany.
  • Most of the Cygnus: Bringer Of Balance section of Hemispheres is missing, probably due to the tape having needed to be flipped. The cut during Hemispheres comes during the calm ambient section of Bringer Of Balance, then suddenly jumps to the beginning of The Sphere.
  • This recording cuts off near the end Bastille Day, so is missing In The Mood and Neil's drum solo.
  • 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.
  • Something For Nothing and Cygnus X-1 were also dropped from the setlist towards the end of the tour for all continental European dates, which would have been from May 17 and onward.
