Thanks! Link works great now. I ended up finding an E/F show from Vegas since I couldn't find yours. Its the 05/17 show, great quality too for an audience recording. Unfortunately, they decide to change up the order of the songs in that one, as opposed to this one and the Tokyo one where it's all played in order. Can't wait to listen to this one, hope Arnel's voice is a bit better in this one as opposed to 05/17 because man he was rough in that one. Oh and if you want that one let me know!

You are welcome, Ty for offering the 05/17 show, as I think it is posted here and i think i have it, but ty.

i will say this recording is strange, as now u will see why Troubled Child, which was restarted, was not added to the live cd as it was terrible and probably a main reason SP never performed it. Really hard to hit. Not a super song anyway, but still.

Yeah I heard an audience recording of Troubled Child from the Tokyo show and it was a ridiculous mess. This version was marginally better lol. This show sounded a lot better than the 5/17 in terms of Arnel's voice, but it's quite apparent that the constant touring has definitely taken it's toll on Arnel. It's really sad actually, from 2007-2011 I thought his voice actually improved substantially but any show from 2017 I've heard has been rough. Which is sort of to be expected, even shows from 1983 onwards show some strain on SP voice. I think Arnel needs to learn how to compensate for his vocal struggles. SP was a master at that, on many performances you'll hear SP avoid the difficult notes in the less popular songs to save his voice for the home run songs. Arnel for some reason seems to try to power through his vocal difficulties with poor results, and it just isn't good for his voice in general.

Out of curiosity, do you happen to have any shows from Arnel's earlier years? Anything from 2008-2012 for example?


Thanks again!
