Agreed Wow. I went to 12 shows on this tour and this is pretty close to being there again. I can now forever re-live my youth. Sound is great. If you are a Rock-N-Roll fan and never saw Springsteen you should buy this DVD. I watched it when it was on HBO in HD. It seems just as good of a picture as then. I am sure if I had it side by side I could tell, but it seems close.
It was filmed with HD cameras so I assume it is 1.78. I have the box right here and all it says is Digitaly Mastered, 5.1 dolby Digital. AS far as the sound goes, I notice some drop off during certain songs, like Out in the Streets. I remember this happened during the HBO broadcast and I just assumed it was my satelite signal, but I guess in mixing it this happened. The crowd noise is fine to me. It is never as loud as when ou are in the audience, but I am sure Bruce wants you to here the music. Crank it up and enjoy the show. Invite about 30 of your friends that like the Boss for a screening. Put 7:30 on the invitation and start the DVD at about 8:10 to 8:15. Springsteen fans will know what I mean.
I wish they would make a couple of DVDs of my favorite bands AC-DC "Down at Downington"(Lehigh College Autorium, Bethlehem, PA) or Def Leppards "Pyromania"(June 27,1983) I have the videos of the both bands I heard loud and 'live'!
