The previous 2018 concert at the Kunsthaus is here: 

Please note that there was no sound technician at the mixing desk throughout the concert and subsequently the microphone peaks at several parts during the couple of louder songs. This lasts just a few, brief moments but could not be removed as it was on both the mixing desk and room sources. Please listen to the version of 'Lover O Lover' for the worst of it. It is what it is. 

Also, 'When I Was Single' was played acoustic in the middle of the room so naturally sounds different to the rest of the set.
