The venue is at the main Milan horse track (thoroughbred horse racing) near San Siro stadium.
I have located myself in front of the right stack, about 20 m from the stage.
Many people were around me and, unfortunately, some of them used Stone Roses‘ Reunion Tour music as a background for their conversation.
Anyway the sound is good-to-very good, with only occasional screaming and clapping always in time with music.
What about the show?
It was my first The Stone Roses concert and I enjoyed a lot, but I was disappointed with its short duration.
“Something’s Burning”, for example, even if still listed in available setlist was definitely not played.
The gig was part of the first edition of a new Milan summer festival (City Sound) held at the Ippodromo del Galoppo.
The setlist is mainly based on the first album and related stuff. Only 2 songs from Second Coming.
“Fools Gold” itself is worth the ticket price.
– The total running time of the recording was 1:28:10; I have cut the first 2:40 mins (The Supremes’ Stoned Love used as intro music) and the last useless 40 secs reducing the master to 149
– I have amplified the whole recording (+7.0 dB on the left channel, +11.0 dB on the right channel), faded-in and faded-out the first and last 10 secs
– If you burn to audio CD, you will need 2 CDs (CD1: 01-08; CD2: 09-15)
