Fix notes:

2nd April:

It's apparent that there was over-miking of the floor toms (present on both versions I tried) causing bass rumble frequently throughout.
Tape flip between Queen Bitch and Fashion during tape flip.  Faded on tape, repaired as best as I could.
Fade out between Heroes and The Jean Genie which clips the start of the latter.

3rd April:

Significant disparity in volume between the two channels, with the right channel oversaturated.  Used iZotope RX declipper tool to restore peaks on right channel for whole tape - successful

Joins between Panic and Detroit and Suffragette City, and Fame 90 and Heroes resulted in minor loss of music to start of latter song in each case.  Join between Let's Dance and Stay lost crowd noise only.
Join betweeen Ashes To Ashes and John I'm Only Dancing loses David saying the name of JIOD!

Unpleasant blare at the start of Blue Jean which could not be fixed without being intrusive.  The sound is a little rougher from Heroes onwards and that's on the tape.
