This is a restoration of one of two different audience recordings from this last night of the 1986 "Black Celebration" tour. The other one is a bit clearer but parts of what I heard are clipped in places (you hear it as distortion) and clipping is impossible to get rid of. So I gave myself a harder task and set about attempting the worse of the 2! The original was muddy sounding (as you'd expect from an audience recording outdoors), volume was up and down (sometimes in the same song) and the sound often floated over to the right hand side a lot.
As a "last night of the tour" treat, they performed "Somebody" in place of "It Doesn't Matter Two" for the only time on this tour, so it's nice to be able to work on this one.
I had a go at this twice - wasn't so happy with the first attempt so started again pretty much from scratch. It's now far clearer than it was, and at a far more even volume. There is still some drifting of the sound to the right but unless you're listening on headphones you may not even notice now. In any case, this sounds far far better than when I started and I hope you will agree, a much better record of the last night of the tour. You can certainly listen to, and enjoy the gig all the way through. This restoration is dedicated to the memory of Andy Fletcher, original member of DM who passed away suddenly this year.
You can now download the repaired, restored and remastered version of this show exclusively for free, right HERE as one 320kbps MP3 file.
If you would like separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s or lossless FLACs of the restoration, head on over to the Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs. Absolutely no obligation to do so of course - you can take the file on this page absolutely for free - but every single donation does go towards this site and domain/storage costs, and helps the site stay open.
Either way, enjoy the show! And if you like this recording, PLEASE spread the news and share the page link to anyone you think might be interested - facebook fan groups, web forums, Twitter and Instagram are a great way of spreading the word - that way, I always find out which bands are popular and can do more shows by them in the future. Many thanks.
