Yes, though it is a bit edited between the songs!

Seriously looking forward to this release. Without starting any debate, I just think the live versions have been so much better since the departure of Dino, and I've been waiting to see them again/hear this tour professionally recorded since the last show I caught in Manchester last year.

That's great news Jarkko! Do you have any clues for us yet on which show they chose in the end for the DVD?

Can't wait for this. It would be great to know if it is a single concert or songs from lots of different shows.

This thread is beginning to look a little like a game of "Twenty questions" !
Here is my question...
Is the concert from a European venue?

(The question everyone would like the answer to is "Which concert is it? " - but I don't think we will get an answer to that at this stage!)
Royal Albert Hall London 1988, Manchester Opera House 18th June 2008,
Manchester Arena 30th Nov 2008, Weybridge 11th July 2009,
Lissadell House 31st July 2010, Dublin 11th & 12th September 2012, London O2 21st June 2013,
Manchester Arena 31st Aug 2013,Leeds 7th September 2013

Isn't there an old proverb "Never Two Without Three"
although only our active members can get the idea.

Thanks for information, this is excellent news. I don't care where it was recorded, I'm just excited to hear it (whilst waiting patiently of course).

that would be a great settlement of the clue but unfortunately wrong (there are NO tour plans). I was only referring to the country in question (and it's not France).

So Dublin it is, then. (I don't remember Super J ever denying the original post re: venue).

"Never two without three" refers to the two shows in Dublin being made into a +1 as DVD, CD etc.

We didn't go... have to go look at concert reports. :razz:

As Gwen said, French proverb. Not France so a French speaking country. Too many shows in Canada, too many shows in Belgium in 2012, not enough in 2013 so that leaves Switzerland: 2 shows in French speaking Montreux and a third much later in Zurich, which fits nicely with the proverb. The Montreux shows were in a smaller venue so they might not have used the cameras. Therefore Zurich gets my vote.

Of course, there may be absolutely no connection between the provenance of the proverb and the country of the show featured on the DVD. The proverb may itself be the proverbial red herring .... But I think we know Jarkko better than that?
