A very rare show in that they changed the set running order. Run Riot opens, Love Bites and Photograph are moved to the main set, PSSOM closes the main set (on which either Steve or Phil start the intro too early) and BOTH and ROA make up the encores. Despite the fact that all these songs are standards for the tour, its refreshing to hear them in a different order. Overall this is good, although there is some audience noise and there is small portion of the 2nd verse of Animal missing, but this worth getting for the rare setlist alone. The atmosphere at this gig sounds amazing and apparently there were over 30,000 people there.
