As requested.

What and when?
The Cross, live at the Festival For Life in Geneva, Switzerland. Recorded on April 1st, 1990.

Intro
Professional recording, taken from a copy of the mastertape which I bought around 2000/2001 from the Dutch Queen shop 'Miracle Express' for the huuuuge price of 90 guilders. I sent my original tape to Miklos in 2004/2005 if I'm not mistaken, who did his magic and remastered/authored the whole thing.

As far as I know this is the only professional recording of a complete The Cross show available. Highly recommended, as they perform pretty much the whole Mad Bad And Dangerous To Know album and some other tracks from Shove It plus the occasional b-side/cover/Roger-track. Shame they didn't do I'm In Love With My Car or any of the other Queen-tracks they did later on though.

If anyone is interested in more material by The Cross, let me know. I've got tons of stuff on VHS somewhere, including rare TV-appearances for tracks like New Dark Ages. If anyone is willing to convert this stuff to DVD, I'd be happy to send out my VHS-tapes.

Setlist:
In Charge Of My Heart
Top Of The World Ma
Closer To You
Cowboys and Indians
Breakdown
Penetration Guru
Power To Love
Liar
Heaven For Everyone
Better Things
Man On Fire
Old Men (Lay Down)
Sister Blue
Strange Frontier
Foxy Lady
Final Destination

Hope this works, as this is my first torrent.

No it's not. Miklos posted in the other topic (see the final page) commenting that his version (which I just shared) is much better. I can't get the damn thing to upload though. I think it uploaded a few MB to Pittrek, but now it just says 'queued' and I can't get it to start uploading again...

Yes, I've got 0.3% from you :-) I already have a  2.960 share ratio :-)

How many torrents do you have open ? Which client are you using ?

Amazing how nearly 60 people can find the torrent download button but only 8 people managed to find the thanks buttons

Thanks Pim!  Much appreciated - i was feeling uncomfortable with people moaning at me about not sharing.



I did not keep the AVI files back then unfortunately - this footage is crying for a neatvideo filter to make it look even better.

From what I've seen so far you are right., it's an ideal candidate for neatvideo and colormill, but still looks very good. It's a pity you don't have the avis, starting from a lossy compressed video is usually not a good idea

How long do I need to seed this? I've uploaded close to 30 GB in the last 18 hours and if I look at the stats it seems that several people have got complete downloads so...

Please keep seeding as long as you can. I'm still at only 57% and I see no seeders :-)
You can't really TRUST the statistics from the Queenzone tracker
