I believe a version of this was shared in 2015, this share is from my master tape.
I was in the lower balcony straight back from the stage and had a noisy guy to my left that I've mostly edited out. The ECM939 mic was a very directional mic, if someone yelled to your left it was clearly picked up in the left channel only. Fortunately, this was a pretty easy fix.
Typical 1983 set minus "City's Burning" and adding "Auld Lang Syne", I remember they seemed a bit unprepared for midnight as they left the stage a few times trying to get closer to midnight and then came out again a minute or two before, counted down, played "Auld Lang Syne" then "Barracuda" and left.
This was no Springsteen show playing three hours before and an hour after midnight, pacing left a bit to be desired.
With that said, what they played was enjoyable though traveling the three hours from Oklahoma City for it and three hours back afterwards I was a little disappointed.
