Set List

First Set

Poland (30:00)
A more or less uniformly elongated version of the track released on Poland. There are some subtle differences from the released version. Firstly, there is some extra repetition early in the track, totalling about three minutes. Secondly, the main melody is absent from the first half of the piece; instead there are some Exit era effects which do not really form a melody as such. There are a few other places where the melody has been eschewed, and throughout there are some extra fill bars (particularly during the main part of the second half of the piece). The ending (with the frenetic percussion) is also elongated by a couple of minutes.
Choronzon (10:00)
The fade-in is mostly a few bass notes at the end of the previous track, a small amount of wind effect, and then into the usual concert rendition of this Exit piece. This track and the next appear the same as the Europe 1982 versions.
Tangent (3:00)
Same as the Europe 1982 rendition.

Second Set

Horizon (4:00)
Pretty faithful to the opening four minutes or so of the released Poland version. There is a prolonged "breathy" patch crossfading into the next track for some time.
Logos Red (8:15)
Apart from the aforementioned breathy patch, which lasts for nearly three minutes, this track is more or less as on Logos Live.
Logos Blue (5:15)
Same as the album version on Logos Live.
Logos Black (3:15)
Same as the album version on Logos Live.
Logos Green (4:30)
Same as the album version on Logos Live.
Logos Velvet (5:00)
The fade from the previous track, rather than following the album version, suddenly produces a glissando modulation down a tone to lead into this track. This starts from about 10 seconds before the album version on Logos Live (basically from the introduction of the percussion onwards).
Logos Yellow (7:00)
The note from the end of the previous piece holds; there are some metallic effects, and this track fades in. What follows is then pretty faithful to the released version on Logos Live, with a few extra brief improvised countermelodies here and there.
Logos Coda (3:15)
Almost the same as the album version on Logos Live.


Midnight In Tula (4:00)
Same as the White Eagle version.
Mojave Plan (8:00)
Unusually, just the second section (the Desert Part) played.
Dominion (6:00)
What appears to be a slightly extended version compared to that on Logos Live. The extra length is just derived from extra repetitions of the "verse" and "chorus".
Das Mädchen auf der Treppe (4:00)
The version from Tatort single, as distinct from the title track from White Eagle.

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