Taper's comments: "This is a complete recording of the first MEGADETH show in Lithuania. The concert was a part of their TH1RT3EN World Tour. The band did not play at the biggest arena in the country but the crowd of about 2000 people welcomed the band very enthusiastically. The recording is of the average quality (6/10). It is strongly cleaned out, so the listeners are cheated in some way. I was standing almost without a chance to move so the atmosphere around me was more savage than it is represented by this spurious document. Anyway, the recording reflects the sound of the night quite properly, the sound that was not so impressive as one could expect after seeing the monoliths of Marshalls on the stage. And it is not only the opinion by the taper defending his low-budget work." First mega-recording from Lithuania ever. Thanks a lot to the taper. The recording is nice but owing to the aforementioned it was hard to expect more. Sadly strandard setlist for that part of the tour.
