Birmingham, UK (?)

Note: I don't have the whole show, but this is a start.
After Set the Controls:
Roger: Thank you.
Roger: Thank you.
Before If, there is some shouting from the audience.
Roger (shouts gruffly, but jokingly): What!?
The audience shouts again.
Roger (in a mock-chiding tone): Speak up, boy.... This is called
Roger: Mel Collins. Thank you.
There is an immediate drum crash/rimshot. I can't figure out why this
There appears to be a tape cut after WYWH, as the audience goes from
cheering loudly to being suddenly quiet. I don't know if this is on the
master or if this is an artifact from my source.
Roger: Thank you. (Gives 5 short whistles, as if he is
beckoning the pig.) Here boy. Piggy, piggy, piggy, piggy, piggy. Come
Then PotW-1 is played.
After PotW-1 there is a rapid fade out during the applause, which
seems to be from the master tape or the CD.
The tape then fades up before ItF, as the organ is churning away.
Roger (in his best German accent): From now on... Zere vill be no
vistling in the hall!
The audience cheers and whistles.
Roger shouts "Eine, zwei, drei, agger!(It may not be 'agger',
but it certainly not 'Hammer'-- there is a hard "G" sound. )
As Roger gets to the end of the vocal in ItF, he adds a few words, so
that he sings:
Roger: If I had my way... I'd have all of you shot... with
bullets... and guns.
In Gunner's Dream, my tape has a bleedthrough of "hold onnnnnnnnnn to
the dream" very faintly before Roger sings it. I don't know if
this is more artifact on my copy or if this was on the master tape and
is on every copy.
Also, Roger sings this line differently than from the album and from
most other 84 shows I've heard-- the "hold onnnnnn" seems to have been
started a beat or two early, so that Roger had to hold the the "onnnn"
longer than usual in order to keep the time.
After Gunner's Dream:
Roger: Eric Clapton. We're going to take a break now for about 20
minutes then come back and do S'MORE!! (He says 'some more' really
theatrically and breathily.)
