Simon has both in audio so might be able to tell a difference - but yeah nice to see.

Great quality considering the tech used is 10 years old though


EDIT:
Anecdotes watching properly...
1) NO FUCKING CELL PHONES... god even so (relatively soon after) ...those were the days... just a full raging crowd.
2) The highest tech of the day - multiple wall screens in diff places all playing one image - now they combine into one huge image.
3) 11-12K people from memory... and the cutouts in the audio are bound to be from the volume - the crowd in both gigs were fucking LOUD as hell as NZ usual. Check out Breakout from 15.15...

4) Songs (all complete from gig start):
Let It Die
The Pretender
Times Like These
Breakout
Learn to Fly
Cheer Up, Boys (Your Make Up Is Running) (Most of, though seems a bit choppy (poss cut up?) - could have been battery issues I guess)

Missing (whichever gig it is):
This Is a Call
Stacked Actors

All the Acoustic segment
All the encore

To be clear no criticism meant whatsoever - the stabilisation issue on zoom is really obvious, but so is where you were zooming from - right at the back. Focus fades in and out as as well, but even modern cameras with 60+ x optical zoom can wobble all over - just at higher resolution. For when it was it was a fucking fine effort. And they still freak out on all gig recording even now - if they see you and can get to you, you are usually asked to stop, since even cell phones can easily be recording 4K now.

I had a crack at recording the entire Christchurch gig in 2015 - on the basis they wouldn't play there very often and it was the first of three (though that became two after the truck crash going to the Auck Town Hall event). It's a huge ask grabbing a whole gig in any shape, let alone video lol
