Live USA (without barcode, black print CD)

~ Release by Simple Minds (see all versions of this release, 1 available)


CD Back Cover stated:
Recorded live in the U.S.A in 1985 + 1986
Link stated that to be wrong! Instead:
Recorded at the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute in Wembley Stadium, London, UK, 1988-06-11
Johnny Marr is stated on sleeve to feature on "Alive and Kicking" but actually features on "Summertime Blues".
Track 4 features Peter Gabriel and Youssou N' Dour.

Track 2 has at the Beginning the Song 'East at Easter'.

In Track 6 Jim Kerr said at the Beginning, that 'it's the 10th time that und they were playing in this Hall ', so this recording can't belong to the Concert for Mandela, because that was held in a Stadium!
