On the album the song ends when the crowd cheers, but at the concert there was an additional 4:21 guitar solo ending with Yngwie J. Malmsteen making his guitar sound like a spaceship taking off. This extended version of the song can be found on various bootleg recordings.
  • The bonus tracks are from the same concert and comprise the entire unabridged concert.
