Set List

Main Set

Kiew Mission (8:00)
This track was played exactly as the Exit studio version, but it ends a bit prematurely -- during the ominous synth part about 7:30 in, before the laid-back repeating sequencer motif that precedes it recurs. Here, the spoken Russian vocals were cited by a woman standing in a balcony situated above the band. She is possibly the person who spoke them on the official release -- she sounds identical.
Mojave Plan (21:00)
An orchestral version of the epic track from White Eagle, with the orchestra conducted by Eberhard Schoener. Uniquely to this occasion, the track was played by TD more or less faithfully to the album version (certainly in terms of timing), augmented at various times by string, horn, and percussion sections. A crashing kettledrum also embellishes things to great effect. The traditional "random noises" opening and the following six-bar rhythm are accompanied by oboe and aggressive string backing, with some random oboe and string effects starting off the track before the usual clashes and screeches begin. The following brassier sequencer part (the Desert Part) builds itself to an impressive crescendo of soaring strings and orchestra clashes. During the second sequencer part (Section 3) the kettledrum kicks in aggressively. And during the final sequence (Canyon Part) the orchestral accompaniment gets downright bombastic and majestic by turns. This final part is probably the most successful integration of the orchestra and the TD sound during the piece. The crescendo ending of the studio version is not present here, so this particular rendition is, in fact, fractionally short.

(All times rounded to nearest 15 seconds and include bridges following song, if any.)
