Mastering Notes:
Tapes flips during the applause after "Planet Of New Orleans", "On Every Street", and "Telegraph Road" - seamlessly spliced.

Taper Notes:
"DGB" had a restricted view seat on the side, next to the door, with two ushers next to him.  One of them noticed that he was recording and whispered in his ear to hide the mic when the security guy was nearby.  On occasion he hid the mic under his seat, covered up. Also, the door to the side banged when people would go in and out of the seated area.
