Words truly can't describe how incredible it was to see Mark and the band put on a stellar performance. The set list is the same as the rest of the tour but still a thrill even when knowing what to expect. I can't say enough about the super star line up of musicians Mark had behind him. You can honestly feel the respect and camaraderie between them all. Of particular note were Glenn Worf's bass playing and Guy Fletcher's synthesizer work. Listen closely during the Sultans jam, Nazareth and Telegraph for some crazy bass lines and high end synth' twists.

Caveat emptor: My sponsor for the evening, a very pleasant lady from Massachusetts, was somewhat chatty at the beginning of the performance. You'll hear her asking me a question or two that I did my best to answer with sign language but one required an audible response, not too distracting in my opinion.

I present this recording to you unedited and without any EQ for the simple reason that I don't think it needed it.

Enjoy
