Nice one! Out of interest, do you know what some of Steve's previous concerts where shot on? Is there a possibility of some bluray reissues or are we stuck with Standard Def?

Everything else was standard def, although the Sex and Religion show was shot on 16mm film.

No problem here either. Are you sure that you have all the neccesary plugins
for your web browser? Are you Using IE or Firefox. Then it would run normally..

Ok 2 months isn't that bad. Time will fly by...

First of all, I am so looking forward to this release, and I am definitely getting the Bluray first day!!! :guitar


Having said that, I am just curious as to why it was only shot in 720p instead of 1080p Full HD? I understand shooting in Full HD might cost more, but it seems most concerts out there that are said to be shot in so-called HD are shot in 720p only? How come? I can only recall a few titles out there that are shot in 1080p Full HD. Could someone or Mikey answer this question for me? Thanks in advance. :peace

Great to see a Dave Weiner song being performed (Shove the Sun Aside) but does anyone have any details on the new tracks (i.e. Apples in Paradise, Gary 7, Beastly Rap, Treasure Island, and Earthquake Sky), or if they're linked in any way to Steve's next studio album project?

I'd also just like to point out how similar the heroic intro is, both harmonically and melodically, to the soundtrack to Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It may just be a coincidence but the melody is almost exactly the same; it's uncanny! I'm referring to the part between 0:17 - 0:23 btw.

The dvd looks to be the most interesting release yet and I'm really looking forward to seeing/hearing it. I'd also love to see Steve's back catalogue of dvds being released, particularly from the Fire Garden and S&R tours.

Rock on.

"Apples in Paradise" is the violin solo/duel.

"Gary 7", "Beastly Rap" and "Treasure Island" are part of Steve and Jeremy's solo spot with the "beast" satellite kit.

"Earthquake Sky" is Jeremy's drum solo.

I found a pre-order for Europe. 05-10-09 is the releasedate, according to Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.
