Mikey suggested a "sneak peek" in the not too distant future, well if we're going to have to wait till october, the summer is going to be really long, it was one of those things I was looking forward to, now I'm just fed up of the mutliple delays, and I know this is not directly Steve's fault here, but I think all this could have been thought in advance to anticipate the whole "industry" part of it, blu-ray and what not.

:?
Well if delays happen, they happen. But I have to disagree on the "what's the point" thing.

I would love a 1997 Fire Garden tour DVD at this point. Or a Sex & Religion tour DVD too.

I don't care how old it is. As long as it's new material (forget the Remasters, just PLEASE keep all the old stuff in print!).

Honestly, I guess the delay has something to do with proper marketing and all that goes with releasing a record or DVD. I don't understand all the steps that make up the process of a release, but I'll bet it's far more complicated than most people think.

I'd like to be holding a copy of the DVD in my hands now, but it's not a problem for me if I'll have to wait some more time for that. I'm cool with that. I think Steve knows we all want it, and I trust him to make it available as soon as possible. :)

maybe they´re waiting to say until we found out ourselves and calmed down a little?

Psychological strategy^^. Mikey has been around here since that, I saw him posting, but not here :(

Exactly. There are a LOT of things that go into the making, promotion, and sales of a professional DVD (not to mention a Blu Ray as well!) All in all we need to be patient about this process, and let the pros handle it.

It's going to be out on Sept 29.

Blu-ray will be a couple of weeks after that.

Thanks for your patience. The wait will be worth it, I promise. :)

Nice, so you knew it was coming :) It sucks when what you mean as joke actually
happens in the end.
I'll just sort of wait and see now, if it's out in Sept., then great, but I'll start getting excited when it actually arrives, which is what I should've done in the first place, not being excited everytime there was release date mentioned.
Hope it's worth it.

It looks like the favored nations site can't quite handle the traffic for the trailer. I've been trying to stream the 15 minute version for a couples hours and I've got about 30 seconds of it so far.
