Will this be the entire concert,or just that which has been previously available on a bootleg? Is there a setlist available? Hope it's an entire show !! Great period during Todd's career,1968 through , well, NOW !!

I recall the last track, "Sons of 1984" was voiced over and faded out on the radio show. Worth it for "the Wheel" alone but a faultless set by the band at (some believe) the top of their game.

I've just got it. "Mister Triscuits" fades out and then you get "The Last Ride". No "Something's Coming". Probably due to royalty issues, but what a disappointment.
