Comments from musicscramble:
"Arcade Fire are a stellar live act. Their sound fairly inimitable and at times ferocious live. It’s safe to say that they are always immaculate in terms of playing and musicianship. Three albums in, and having headlined Festivals across the world they are extremely at ease playing to tonight’s large capacity crowd and do well to keep most people’s attention throughout their 1hr 40m set, playing a good mix from their back catalogue. There were a few tracks, such as the rare “Speaking in Tongues” from their Deluxe Edition of The Suburbs which was met with the crowd mostly talking since they didn’t know it. However those instances were very few." (by Gareth -

Taper Notes:
"SoundForge was used for trimming the start/end of the WAV, normalisation and adding fade-in/out. No equalisation was performed on this recording. I was stood to the right of the stage, on the 2nd row, just to the left of the RH speaker stack. The RH channel therefore has a very slight gain with regards to the music, with the LH channel picking up slightly more crowd noise. It's hardly noticable though and actually adds a good stereo mix to the sound, hence I decided to leave the balance as it is. Enjoy!  :-)"
