This is the very last show of the Hemispheres tour.
The standard Hemispheres tour setlist was shortened for the PinkPop Festival due to a limited time slot on stage.
Due to reasons unknown, the recording was temporarily stopped during the first three parts of 2112, therefore no complete recording exists of this performance.
Anthem was also very likely played as the opening song, but the recording didn't start until afterwards. Geddy's dialogue at the beginning of the recording pretty much confirm this.
This show had an official release for the Hemispheres 40th Anniversary set, which cuts out the PinkPop version of 2112, and adds the version from the Offenbach show (28 May 1979) as the last track.
The 40th Anniversary release claims 2112 to be from the Tucson show (20 Nov 1978), however audible comparisons between the track and both bootlegs will clearly prove which recording it is from.
Partial footage of this performance also exists, however is only known have captured most of La Villa Strangiato, and nothing else.

Bootleg Titles:
A Right To Passage, Live At Pinkpop Remastered, Live In Holland 1979, Pinkpop Festival, Pink Pop Upgrade, Praying For The Light, Rushian Roulette


Whenever I reupload this recording to my own YouTube channel (soon), I plan to sync in the partial footage of La Villa Strangiato within the rest of the audio recording.
