This DVD contains two pro-shot recording broadcasts of the same source, with some differences.

One is from E! TV and has an incomplete, edited version of Home; it is missing approximately 30 seconds of the outro to the song. Other than that, it is a complete recording. It has better sound than the MTV version. It is 29:01 in length.

The other recording is from MTV and is a complete recording. It has worse sound than the E! version, but it is still quite good - perhaps it was a recording of a television broadcast, while the E! version was a pre-broadcast source. Never Let Me Down Again ends abruptly and misses a few of Dave's parting lines (but no music), which are "I guess we'll see you next time, thanks for coming, goodnight". It is 29:37 in length.

Both versions have similar video quality; see sample screenshots.

The DVD also contains:

  • E! interview with Dave Gahan, 17:05 in length
  • Pre-show video, 5:55 in length, probably recorded by the E! camera guy, given the recording position (at least when he's in the venue), quality, and lack of "shake"

You can find the most complete, best sounding version of the soundboard audio from this concert at source 1.


You can watch this entire recording below. This stream is only of the MTV broadcast version, which is the complete recording with no missing music.
