One thing you will want to do with this copy is use your television's "Zoom" feature (on HDTV's). This show was filmed in the 16:9 aspect ratio (widescreen) but this is a 4:3 transfer. There are letterbox borders (black sides and/or top portions on the screen) when watching the DVD in the regular widescreen mode on a TV. But if you use zoom, it fits the screen like it is suppose to.

I am attempting to get the upgrade, hopefully the one I know that has LPCM audio too, and then I'll upload that copy here. I have no idea if I'll be able to get it or not. I've been searching for it and have not been able to find more than a mention of it so far. But there is hope with some news I got earlier this morning from another collector/trader. So we'll see what happens!
The last 15 minutes approximately of this disc are just black screen and there is no video. It seems around 1 hour, 45 minutes into the DVD the concert ends so the recording continues through to the SP mode 2 hour cut off and there is just black screen.
This is a bare basics DVD without any editing and it has flaws as I mentiuoned. I uploaded the DVD yesterday with the original text file that was in it (song titles pretty much). So my normal text file, or copy of this page and its details, is not included. Copy and paste this post yourself if you want to keep the details close by and add it to the EXTRAS folder.
This is still a decent recording and a great show from very early in the 1998 tour's opening shows and I hope you enjoy it..
