David - I loved watching this. Thanks for uploading 8)
At the end - "Wither Thou Goest" and Leonard's blessings - lovely
Security was very tight on this glorious and wet June evening but towards the end I hesitantly, then with more confidence, pointed my camera at the spaces between the heads in front and recorded (many partial): Hallelujah/Democracy/i'm your man/So long marianne/First we take manhatta#n/Sisters of Mercy/If it be your will/Closing time /I tried to leave you/Whither thou Goest/Closing remarks.
Glad to have a record of the third night of this Manchester residency , the first uk concerts at the start of his ongoing world tour. One for the Dino fans

Thanks. It induced a personal reflection on the between times. The five years have passed so quickly but not without moment. Not the best of intervals in terms of takings and relaxation, but there's an upside to every occasion.
