I have a bootleg copy of the Stormwatch tour and must say that Stormwatch sounds much better live. Stormwatch was the first concert I saw of JT and many fans were disappointed that too much Stormwatch was played. However they did like King Henry's Madrigal, one of the few tunes not written by Ian Anderson. Everyone in the concert seemed to love it but this Madrigal only appears in the recently released digitally remastered version of Stormwatch. Possibly one of Anderson's blunders which led to the breakup of the band when it was at its best. I however feel that the audience was a bit harsh and expected to hear the oldies at the time while sadly going to the restroom during performances of excellent tunes like Orion, and Dunringhill. The Madison Square Garden audience got a kick when they saw Martin Barre running around the stage with a stuffed seagull at the end of Dunringhill though.
