A radio station called "Jovem Pan 2 FM" broadcast the concert live in stereo sound, but a recording has never seen the light of day.
There is apparently an audience recording from this show out there as well. Radio Bandeirantes broadcast the show again a few years later, with a few different edits between songs.
