Laurie Anderson Homeland Tour 2007-10-22 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Laurie Anderson Homeland Tour
Sydney Opera House, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
22nd of October 2007

This is an excellent audience recording I received from George, a Laurie fan visiting Sydney at the time and he says:
I enjoyed the shows very much and I'm very glad I went to both nights. This show really grows on me with every time of hearing it again.
Laurie was also very well received in Sydney, I think she got a very dedicated circle of fans here.

This was the second night of Laurie Anderson’s Homeland at the Sydney Opera House.
The Sydney Opera House has 2 major performance venues, the Concert Hall in the left wing (looking from the side of the staircase)
and the slightly smaller Opera Theatre in the right wing. Normally all concerts are performed in the Concert Hall, but these 2 shows
were performed in the Opera Theatre, which apparently has better acoustics than the Concert Hall.

Recorded from the 6th row, close to the right speaker stack with Churchsound Cardioid Microphone System STC-9000
> Sony M1 DAT recorder > M Audio Delta Audiophile via S/PDIF > Cooledit Pro 2.0 > DVD (.flac)

> me > Mac OS X > xACT (added fingerprints) > Dime > YOU!
