An excellent audience recording. Here are the taper's notes from the original info file:

First show in Southern California at "The Forum", 3rd night of Momento Mori Tour. Got to meet Dave's wife before the show too! Recorded from my seat at Sec E, Row 3, Isle Seat. Base and audio were insane! It was so loud I think it drowned out the crowd noise so this sounds nice and clear! So happy to have used the bass roll off as it helped preserve the maximum effect of the concert. I had to take breaks holding the phone up so some of the banter between songs is cut out, particularly the delay before the Encore. Encore was a special treat with the arrangement on Condemnation - total surprise. The setlist moved and didn't have lulls like prior tours suffered. They really seem happy performing and did a great tribute to Andrew Fletcher on World In My Eyes. Very touching.
