Final show of The Farewell Tour

Source: master audience recording
Taper: larryrulz
Location: on the rail, VIP section (behind the Gold VIP section) - see photo in Comments
Lineage: CA-14 (cardioid) > Sony M10 (24/44) > Audacity (amplify, EQ, L channel removed, Pseudo-Stereo, tracking) > TLH > FLAC 6 > foobar2000 (FLAC tags)
Sound: mp3 samples attached in the Comments

Length: 2:31:27

Notes: I chose to go to this show for the "event" aspect. I bought a VIP ticket ($150) so I could stand close to the stage, behind the Gold VIP section ($750). See picture in the Comments. The weather was perfect, meaning it didn't rain. The recording is just okay, not stellar. There was excessive wind noise in one channel throughout the show. I found it very distracting, so I removed the channel and used the other channel to create a Pseudo-Stereo recording. I did some EQ (decreased highs, boosted lows) as well. If anyone wants to do their own mastering, I would be happy to provide the raw recording files. Please send a PM and I can arrange it. Near complete video was obtained and will be shared here eventually. YouTube samples here:
