My copy arrived today - whoah, fantastic full sound and full stage rigs too Never seen or heard them sounding so good. Sure makes a change from a pokey pub, as fun as that is What I would of given to be in the crowd that night! Also liked the reworking of a couple of the tunes, well at least, I hadn't heard them played that way before. Definitely worth the price of admission, and the extras are fun too.
Highly recommended, so get it if you can
