Remarks: Great sold-out show with nice sound.
This was the second show of the "My SOngs" tour in 2022 (after almost all shows in 2020 and 2021 were cancelled/ rescheduled because of the COVID-19 restrictions).
A special version of Russians (guitar/ cello version) was performed as the opening song in solidarity with Ukraine.
Five songs of the new album "The Bridge" were performed in a row.

Recording location:
Recorded from the balcony (row 1; seat 16; Rufus side of the stage).
