Does anyone know if this will be released on VHS video as well as DVD?

I was there that night too, and will never forget it. It was the first time I'd seen Steve live - can't wait for the next time !! Kind of memorable in a more personal way for me too as my Dad was very ill with Cancer at the time, and so going to that concert was a real release from the stress of that time. Sadly Dad passed away just one week later. I think seeing the concert again will bring back a real mixture of memories ! But hey, emotions are good, whatever they are.

I was at the gig too, it was great! Just one of the nights (I'd forgotten there were 2) it must have been the first night. I saw him on the Ultra Zone tour in London too, and must say I preferred that gig. The gig on the DVD night I saw was a greatest-hits set and I much preferred the unpredictable, quirky set-list we got that previous time.

For those that went to the 2 nights: was the set different? That would be cool.

What night was everyone there? I went on the Friday (7th). it was so damn good. Loved the thing about Britney and the thing about Hendrix. that cracked me up, although some people didn't seem to like it too much! hehehe.

Anybody know who the drummer and keyboard players were for that show?

Yeah October seems a while to wait, but remember Steve's working on something else in the mean time! Can't wait to find out what that is!

Dude, the Britney thing was on the 6th! The drummer was Virgil Donati, and the keyboard player was Tony MacAlpine, who also played guitar.

Yeskin Gallen - yeah the setlists were the same. The cool thing was, the first half of the show was better the first night, and the second part was better the second night! I could feel that Steve was kinda tense the second night, until the Hendrix songs, then he really got into it, and somehow I felt that the whole vibe of the show changed radically (it happened right before Fire, when he was talking to the crowd)! Btw they also filmed the soundcheck the second day, to have extra footage.
