I was only at 2 of the gigs, and have both recordings. Hammy March 2013 and Dublin April 2014.
The atmosphere comes across better on Hammy 2013, but the overall quality of playing is better on Dublin 2014. I usually listen to JW (that crowd roar is just incredible) and MOTT (very emotional) from Hammy, but I prefer everything else about the Dublin recording. 4500X was much better on the 2014 tour, too.
Sorry: just read the question properly! You wanted to hear from someone that has heard them all. I haven't. Apart from the two I already mentioned, I heard (but no longer own) recordings from Manchester and Glasgow from the 2013 tour. My preference from 2013 is for the Hammy recording, simply because I was there.

Not quite the same question I know, but I've been re playing my DVDs lately, and the 2014 recording is better both from the playing POV and (in my view) the recording quality/camera work. The extra rehearsing does show.
On the other hand you don't get the pinky-blue bits ;-)
Hammersmith for two nights, on both Tours, absolutely immense...'Juniors Wailing' 'Blue Eyed Lady' & 'Most of the Time' were the standouts...with '4500 Times/Gotta Go Home' on the 2014 Tour, but it was everything and more...you HAD to be there on those Tours (No matter what Mr F Rossi Esq thought about it...)
'I Guess it doesn't matter, as long as I can get my head down in the Sun'
Only saw them one night at Hammersmith 2014 and it was the first time I was able to see the FF complete...had seen them with Kircher but never with Coghlan...and it was the most amazing experience I have had ! Just happy I got to see them before everything that came after 2014
backwater67: Looks like fretbuzzzz has based his sales on BPI sales awards. Back in the 1970s & 80s silver sales were based on minimum 250,000 units sold. (Today silver sales are awarded for 200,000 units)

granny: But @4th Chord regarding your new rule...if the man running the country (Dominic Cummings) can weave a fairy tale around known facts why can't we be just as creative?

juansupposin: 21st September 91 at Wembley, the 45 min Guinness concert, probably not the best concert to start, only 45 min, I remeber thinking they will play longer because it was the last concert

backwater67: Paul Hirch filled in for Quo when Andy’s wife was unable to tour. Aquostic was a complete different project for Quo. I was referring to a standard regular live gig on stage with session guitarists. Jagger does still take the lead vocal.
