Those objectives reflect the terms of the Royal Charter under which the Hall was founded, and (together with a number of Acts of Parliament) continue to be regulated.

 Bob Dylan’s `Royal Albert Hall’ : The Holy Grail of Rock ‘n’ roll
The recording, officially titled “Live 1966: The `Royal Albert Hall’ Concert,” is volume four of Columbia’s ongoing Dylan “Bootleg Series,” in which the record company is releasing official versions of Dylan material previously available only on unofficial or “bootleg” albums.
Since 1969, this concert has been bootlegged variously as “Royal Albert Hall,” “In 1966 There Was,” and most recently, “Guitars Kissing and the Contemporary Fix.” In actuality, the recording captures a concert that took place not at Royal Albert Hall but in Manchester at the Free Trade Hall.
Consciously or not, wittingly or not, Dylan and the Hawks were rewriting the rules of postwar American popular music, adding the element of electric rock ‘n’ roll and investing the music itself, born of the blues and rhythm and blues, with a new, eloquent voice of its own.

 EDLIS Dylan Atlas
When BOB DYLAN shocked London by "going electric" at the now legendary Albert Hall gig in 1966, audiences were polarised: hardcore folkies felt betrayed, others were exhilarated by this bold, new direction.
But even the stuffy old Daily Telegraph got in on the act with a report of booing fans at London's Royall Albert Hall, and a review which described the show as "a series of noisy songs, most of whose words were incomprehensible, in which Dylan was accompanied by a quite ordinary rhythm group".
Frequently bootlegged over the years, "Live At The Royal Albert Hall" is likely to get an official release through Sony Records in the not-too-distant future, though not in time to mark the gig's 30th anniversary.

Bootleg CD with Dylan and the Hawks, 17 May 66, Manchester, England (not Royal Albert Hall...) The same show is on a lot of other bootlegs.
Some of the less open-minded customers are heard heckling Dylan on this recording, to which he responds by heckling right back and charging into a stormy version of "Like a Rolling Stone" that holds nothing in reserve.
It's been said that this isn't actually from Albert Hall, but wherever the tape dates from (it is certainly from the 1966 British tour), it's way, WAY overdue for official release, though most Dylan fans and many serious rock scholars have a copy already.

Only years later was it discovered that the so-called "Royal Albert Hall" concert was actually recorded live in Manchester.
There are two points of some significance though, both easily overlooked, that need to be considered when discussing this recording: firstly, it's easy to forget that the supposed historical significance of this recording didn't facilitate the manufacture of its reputation in later years.
But if no-one had ever heard of the "Royal Albert Hall" concert before (except the people who were there), people might not be falling all over themselves, acting like this release is the second coming.

A five foot high white scrim ran end-to-end across the stage behind the band, short enough to allow people in the seats behind the stage to see the musicians, and on this sliver of white sheeting, psychedelic washes of color were projected throughout the show.
His playing on Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign” especially lacked snap because he was not syncopating his snare, kick and right-hand stick on the bell of his ride cymbal in the same way he did on Cream’s earlier cover.
