  1. But that's the beauty of this place. I've never started a thread with the intention of wanting everyone to agree with me, and this was no exception. I've had this concert (and the CD version) since the day it was released. I've probably watched it more than any other in my collection (outside of Bruce and Bucks Fizz - kidding ) so I'm not tempted with a few 'extras'. A great purchase if you don't already have it. Great to see so many responses to the thread. Makes no odds to me that people disagree. That's the fun of it.
  2. Well, they've signed a contract to perform. And as the guy says in the Village Voice piece, "I can't afford to be in litigation." As well as having their reputation tarnished. Bruce himself can afford to take the hit when HE cancels ( Exhibit A - LGBT) but these guys are minnows. As for Bruce stepping in to make them cancel? Bad move, imo. Let it be. Today's news is tomorrow's fish and chip paper.
  3. Reckon it still fits him?
  4. School's Out, Billion Dollar Babies, Kiss Alive 2, Darkness, The River, Tenement Steps (The Motors), Bat Out Of Hell, Schizophrenic (Ian Hunter). Nightout (Ellen Foley), Hotel California.
  5. Wasn't there talk years ago that Steve didn't get on with Clarence or Jon Landau.
  6. Well, there definitely was one occasion early on The Rising Tour. There must be more. Edit. It was four identical shows in a row. Apparently there were some identical shows on TOL Tour as well.
  7. I doubt that Bruce's people had anything to do with it. It's a stunning concert, one of my favourites. It just seems artistically pointless to re issue it with some different camera angles. Surely, the Orbison Vaults can't be THAT empty, can they?
  9. I thought the Bowie doc was much much better. Probably because it was made by the BBC. They are so good at that type of thing.
  10. Quarter To Three from NN was also shown on a New Years Eve Whistle Test in 1981.
  11. Excellent. Though her actual duet with Roy is majestic, too. Love the audio mix on the one you've linked. I wish they could all be like that.
  12. If I remember correctly, initially Whistle Test played a couple of clips (BITUSA and COVER ME ?) on one show, and then did a full documentary a little while later, around Christmas time. I also think (but could be wrong) that both were shown in '84.
