Notes from info file:
Again, I am wondering: Why I attend shows in stadiums? Well, the problems with the sound in the stadium were noticable... my tickets were far from the stage (not the worst, but not the best ones). There were about 100 meters between me and the PA. Furthermore, we have to add that the sound at the beginning was terrible, it was a windy night and my seat was in the middle of some 'crazy' fans (behind me) that they talking is noticeable during some parts of the recording. During the recording mics worked fine, specially under these difficult situations... the sound arrived at us as a 'wave', so you can hear as it sounded in the stadium... little ups and downs... especially during the fisrt part of the show. About the three guys mentioned before if you are not involved with the Spanish language it will not affect their comments, and I thank my cardioid mics cause they did the rest.
About the show, what can I say... it was a great show and the atmosphere, with Bruce and the band in great shape and full of energy. Bruce talked a lot in Spanish, and the people thanked it. Set highlights included "Growin' Up" and "The River" back to back, and in the encore, the surprise debut and tour premiere of "Love of the Common People". I loved "Long Time Coming" (dedicated to Patti) and the beautiful singing, especially by Lisa Lowell in "When the Saints Go Marching In".
Please notice that after the debut of "Love of the Common People" the band started playing "You Can Look" (as setlisted). Bruce stopped them and began "My City of Ruins" (not in the original setlist).
Overall, an excellent show and the reason why I would attend another show with Bruce in a stadium;-)
