review by Mick C
There is a cut between Bags and Round where the tape was turned.
It's apparent from his performance that Lydon is genuinely as ill as he warms the crowd he is during Kashmir. Apart from being ill he's in good spirits and there's plenty of banter with the crowd. The band (or as Lydon calls them: "The pop group") also seem in good form apart from mutilating Public image.
One of the more pleasant gigs from the British leg of the tour and one definately worth tracking down.
There's no breaks in the tape towards the end of the gig which means no encores were performed. Seemingly Lydon was too ill to be bothered about leaving the stage, so Rise and Ease are performed as part of the main set.
