This specific ROH show was given its own name, though, so I reckon "Pet Shop Boys - House - Inner Sanctum live at ROH" would be a little confusing.
It wouldn’t really be any different to DVDs such as Montage and Cubism being titled something completely different to the Nightlife and Fundamental tours that are on them though.
But those concerts had no specific title other than "Nightlife Tour" or "Fundamental tour", so the title thing was easier. As I said "House" would sound good, but in order to work 100% as a concept the DVD should feature footage from non-ROH shows too (as bonus content possibly, or as un update to the "Montage" concept).

It’s going to be ‘Inner Sanctum’ - it’s got to be?

Strange there has been no news or mention of this, I would have thought we would have a release date by now tbh...

Yes, it is taking it's time. - Especailly if they would like to release it in time for Christmas.

Has there been any proof it was going to be a Christmas release? I thought it was just fan speculation.

If the footage ain’t good enough it may not even happen.

The show might as well have been filmed for mere archival reasons. Live DVDs are totally useless in this day and age.

Evidently not, otherwise so many wouldn’t still be released. A well filmed live concert sound wise and visually destroys almost anything you’d find on YouTube.
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

But it seems they're mainly reissues/remasters of older filmed shows, with some relevant exception (Roger Waters' new take on "The Wall" for instance). And with many bands having now to tour all the time there's not even the sense of getting a "souvenir" of that concert you either have attended or missed - you can simply wait for the next time they'll be in your country, and most likely the show itself and the setlist won't be too different. The sense of a concert as a proper "event" is long lost, IMHO.

Maybe it'll be on TV rather than DVD

It'll almost certainly pop up on Sky Arts the same way that 'Pandemonium at the O2' (in HD no less) and 'A Life In Pop' get regular outings on the same channel.
