Not always steady and ofter partly obscured but quite enjoyable. Close. Good sound. Grainy due the lack of light.

One could give this DVD five stars as well, but if compared to the terrific video recording from two days later (St. Louis, 3. 3.), one feels obliged to rate it not as highly. Recorded from a balcony and focussing on Dylan and Freddy mostly, the taper has an excellent view, even though there are occasionally some heads in front of him (this isnĀ“t the case with the later recording) which he has to avoid. So there are some camera manoeuvres which distract from the performance on stage. On the other hand this still is a very high quality video recording (the audio would need an upgrade, though) which is pretty much a joy to watch. The show itself I consider as good, but not too special. Again the one from the 3. 3. is more passionate and exciting.
