NOTES:

Excellent concert from the biggest rock´n roll-band in the world (!)
Highlight for me was the blues-rock-monster "Double Talkin´Jive".

Some screamers, drunks and loud/bad drunk singers can be heard from time to time on the recording.
Also the "international disease" of "mouths talking loudly trough the less-known songs" can sometimes be heard.
Let me be diplomatic, big stadium/arenas are not my favorites to record in.
The sound(s) usually are boomy, lack of high-end or a wall of muddy bass/low´s coming your way.

Bare with me rockers of the world, You just can´t help but to think that you entered "a big corporate business gathering".

It will be great to record in smaller venues soon again for sure. Less security, less people (!)

"U2" did a wise move on the last tour in 2015 when they played smaller indoor-arenas, sometimes 4-5 nights in a row.
I think playing to 10.000-15.000 is perhaps the best idea (according to me at least).

"GNR" did put on a great performance and they played for some 3 hours, so we got a lot for the money, thank you.

Also please note, we got both "Don´t Cry" and "Patience". Usually only one of these are played, not both at
the same concert (!)

Otherwise quite an alright recording, if a little bit distant I must admit.

Check the samples below and decide for yourselves.

I also managed to record one of the opening acts, "The Darkness". That one will be shared too ofcourse.
