JT played Giessen (16/7/88, VfB Stadion (Waldstadion)) on this tour (the above poster was from a few days earlier) which was recorded by German radio and there is also an audience recording of the complete set. Great concert - went over with a coach load of Tull fans and also met up with the legendary Michael Veith and also a contingent of AND people in a rather unkempt and "wiffy" campervan Oh, and it chucked it down with rain

jackinthegreen: I'm having a memory blank......has Benefit had the book version done yet?

Catqualung: jackinthegreen, as far as I know the book box set of Benefit is still due to be realized, but it has not appeared yet, as well that of Broadsword and the Beast, they should be the next in the row
