SoundForge was used for trimming the start/end of the WAV and adding fade-in/out. No equalisation was performed as I believe in letting people with better skills than me make any necessary adjustments. I also removed a few clips caused by over-enthusiastic clapping by simply copying from the other channel. None of these lasted for more than 200 or 300 milliseconds.

As usual, this was a pretty good performance from the band in the cold, hangar-like surroundings of Alexandra Palace. The recording turned out pretty well, though the crowd turned quite noisy once the faster tracks started in the second half of the performance.
