Seated just behind Tal in Choir seats. Joe playing off drummer a lot of time gave a perfect view. Varied music as usual note perfect. Can't single out any song as they were all great and Joe was in good voice, even if it was the fourth show. Great atmosphere. Yes we saw the tele prompt Joe. Audience knew they were at a magic moment in time. Took plenty of video and of course have got the Tour de Force box set. Happy memories. The worst part of the show was it had to finish.
