Comments about the bootleg

About the second night in Tokyo: I repeat the same than on the comments about the first night. This bootleg is similar to "Tokyo 1st Night" taped at Shibuya-AX, Tokyo in 2012. The mix is based on the ear monitor source but they also used an audience source to level up the volume from other instruments and the audience 'feel'.

The bootleg from the 2nd night has less problems on the first songs than the other. The mix is just a little based in the Audience source on the 2 first songs (3 with the intro) but much less. And there is no problem with 'Never Too Late'.

This second night has another track, the 14th which are some talking and jokes between Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen and also an introduction to all the members from the band.

This bootleg also includes the 1st night but I included it in another file: Shinagawa Prince Stellar Ball, Tokyo, Japan 1st night.
