JETHRO TULL-CITY HALL, NEWCASTLE, UK, OCT. 5, 1987
This was the 2nd of 4 shows on this tour that I attended with some friends,
the others being Edinburgh, Manchester & Birmingham.
The Newcastle audience was, as usual, very enthusiastic & the band were all
in an extremely humorous mood that I think is reflected in the performance.
The inclusion of "Steel Monkey" in the set came as a pleasant surprise as it
wasn't included at the Edinburgh show the night before.
The fresh performances of "Farm On The Freeway", "Budapest" & "Jump Start"
(complete with 'heavy metal' roadcrew) also hold fond memories.
And who's that audience member yelping out during Ian's comments about the programme crossword??
.....well at least it got laughs & I was a lot younger back then ;))
This actually turned out to be a very memorable Tull week for us as we met Martin, Dave & Doane
after the Manchester show 3 nights later & the great man himself backstage at Birmingham the following night - thanks to the security man who took pity on us standing outside in the pouring rain ;)
The cassettes of this show were bought at a record fair about a week after the show so are presumably 1st generation.
Transfer, tracking, speed correction & artwork by Lutz (fat_man)
*Please note* that there are cuts in "Heavy Horses" & "Hunting Girl"
due to tape flips & there are speed problems in "Budapest"
presumably due to low battery power.
