Fewer obstructions and overall better view than D557, though with a few duck-downs. Quite clear (though grainy) and pretty sharp from the back of the balcony. Very natural colours and steady camera. Pans the stage quite a bit as well as some nice tight shots of Bob. Upgraded HiFi

While I'm not convinced that D558.su called for another upgrade, this is a fine Madhasse production featuring the Soomlos audio pull.
No need to seek it out if you already have D558.su, but if you are searching for this concert for the first time you might go for this version.

Spring '05 theater tour was a peak period in the mountain range of the NET, thankfully captured by this camera person for 2 nights in NYC. If only we had the Boston shows on DVD, but beggars can't be choosers.

This one is well worth your effort, either sound upgraded version will do.
