I watched this all the way through in one view. Thought it sounded great. Loved the arrangement of Streets Have No Name. Such a shame there won't be a DVD release of this. How could they with that hitch?

Very easily if they get over themselves.

I mean, a track-by-track commentary by Neil and Chris would be gold dust. "So, Chris. How did you feel as you were left to your own devices behind that screen?"

I’m sure they’ll stage something next year with all the dancers and bells and whistles which we can all happily fund through tickets, exclusive t shirts and ultimately a lovely blu ray.

I think it's fair to say that with all the overwhelming love and critical adulation the boys are currently experiencing we have entered a new phase ....

the 'legacy' phase ... perhaps?

I quite liked “myth”, which Neil used in the Sunday Times interview.

Watched it and the beginning is indeed stressful to watch. There was also a minor vocal glitch during IDNWYWBICGIA, Neil starting “you’re” (breaking my heart) during a “don’t know what you want” line.

But it all sounded great!

That version of Love Comes Quickly, with Chris' voice over is really beautiful. Don't think the cameras captured the staging of it well though

The camera work and directing at Glastonbury was fairly terrible. That's a better reason for not releasing this show on DVD than the technical glitch.

"Orgy Here"

The guy yawning at the beginning has to be edited out too.

That's not my understanding. And it did disappear from sets since performance. Anyway, good to have it back
As far as I know, they stopped playing So hard because it was about some friends of Neil and he felt uncomfortable singing it.
Look left, then right

Yes noted that too. The low camera angle upfront may work for other acts but not for PSB’s stageing: all we could see of Chris was the top of his cap…

They also did not adjust the reheased camera setting during the first few songs, which resulted in multiple widescreen shots of Neil at the left and a desterted keyboard at the right.
