A very good audience recording, albeit with somewhat reverberated sound. This is Grigio's remaster of the original recording. The taper's original comments which accompanied the original file set are as follows:

Thanks to early entry tickets and an early queue, I was right at the front of the stage for the first time. Dave and Martin are even more inspiring as artists and performers when you can feel their sweat and smiles from a metre away. An outstanding show with a fantastic audience.

The sound at the front was fine, not outstanding, but not as overdriven as in Amsterdam a year ago. However, there was a lot of interaction with the audience, clapping, singing, screaming, bawling, what goes with it up front. For the opportunity to see Dave and Martin up close 38 years after my first Depeche Mode show, I was very happy to accept the loss in quality of the recording.

On February 15, 2024, a remaster by Grigio was shared, with the following notes: "Grigio once again did an excellent job in making this one better than it was before. Thanks a lot!"

Both the original high-resolution 24-bit, 96KHz fileset and a downsampled version in 16-bit, 44.1KHz are available for download below.
