    Default Which show SHOULD BE the official dvd?

    I was excited to hear the rumour about "The Garden" show being filmed for a DVD because I was there. I thought it was a great show and "Official DVD" worthy.

    But I have watched alot of boots from the tour, and IMO I think there have been better shows that are "Official DVD" worthy

    San Diego Cox Arena 11.25 get's my vote for "Official DVD".
    From what I've seen it looks like the band as a whole was "ON" that night.

    What's your pick?

    Ive been too three shows so far and Greensboro gets my vote... lots of energy that nite with the crowd and it was the second nite of tour just lots energy that nite... they probably wont use GREENSBORO though because Dave got a little emotional as we all know... Diamond Dave will not probably want to be seen like this

    True... First show in a long time.

    The only downside, from the boots that I've heard, is alot of feedback from the Vocal mic that night. But I'm sure that could be cleaned up later.

    from nick,


    wouldn't they have to professionally film a show for it to be released on dvd, and so far from everything i have heard, they have not filmed any other shows except for the opening night and that was only for the band and not intended for release, does anyone have any other info, thanks

    how about the one where jump keyboards played at the wrong speed? jk...

    were there actually huge professional cameras taking that msg show in? i was at billy joel's record-breaker show at msg a couple of years ago and he had huge cameras rolling and even announced that the thing was being recorded... but nothing ever got released to dvd, just the cd comp of live recordings from the 12 shows...

    Obviously I'll say Cleveland because I was there. If not, Philly because the boot sounded amazing!

    I won't say Mohegan Sun due to the malfunction in SGMD. Of course, that gave us a treat to watch Wolfie and Al jam for a few minutes. Otherwise, the show was great.

    I'd say either the first show, just because of the historic nature of it or the MSG show because it really was a great show with very few tech problems.

    Since they stick to the script, they should be able to pick the best performance of each song.

    Yeah, but then you get the RHRN syndrome. Same songs different outfits/guitar. At least we won't get skin tight flannel pants this time around

    .....

    Just skin tight leather pants and matador tops.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
