A complete 3+ hour concert of most recent history, the first of three in this tour to be posted (Oct. 29 and Nov. 6 will be next and last). This was posted Nov. ’10 by bj2117. He commented, “This recording captures the opening concert of Leonard Cohen’s 2010 tour ‘Down Under,’ a show at Auckland’s Vector Arena on 28 October. This is the longest show yet performed on this tour (3 hr. 16 min. plus a 20 min. break between sets). The clarity of this recording is exceptionally good, particularly given the original taper’s fairly simplistic setup (see sample). Excellent quality and exceptional clarity for tracks 1-29; tracks 30-32 slightly less crisp, but still very good quality.”

Nothing was changed or altered.
