Taper's Review:

An excellent show, perfectly consolidating all of the great playing that this tour had produced, from the powerful opener to the extended end of show medley, complete with Plant doing his best adlibs yet. An easy choice for one of the very best shows of the year. As if the performance wasn't enough, a superb soundboard, as well as a near-excellent audience sources circulate for this show. Plant mentioned about the cancelled August 4th concert: "It's very nice to be back in Texas. Last time we were here it was a near disaster when we said we weren't doing the festival and everything. This is the last date before we go back to England, so we'd really like to have a nice time ... And you can help us." Plant also apologised for cutting the set short: "We've got to say goodnight according to the programme. Unfortunately, the programme has got a little delayed but there's nothing we can do about it!" Pages amps act up during a few spots in the show, producing brief crackling sounds, as if his guitar cable or a connection somewhere was coming loose. Although not at all a distraction for the listener, this makes for a funny moment during Dazed And Confused and How Many More Times, when Page's amps can be heard briefly picking up the sound of the festival security staff speaking on their radios.

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

Taper's notes:

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's 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
