The set list varied from show to show on this tour, however this gig captures those songs most frequently performed, and includes both Peter Tosh compositions (Stop That Train and 400 Years).

The running order is also fairly typical of the gigs where these songs were performed.

The concert lasted just 45 minutes and an additional performance of Jammin' recorded at Pittsburgh in 1980 is included at the end.
