For the final night we seem to finally have better luck. The camera is up at the front of the balcony. We get Bob slightly better than full screen most of the time, no heads no problems, some panning to other band member sat appropriate times. G.E.'s moves alone are worth watching. Add to this the great setlist, the addition of several guests and a complete show, I would advise you not to miss this one.
