amazon.co.uk don't seem to list it yet. amazon.com does...
Note their earlier release date: "This title will be released on March 31, 2009."
Aha... I just realised that THIS IS A REGION 1 DVD. So not much use to us Europeans. Perhaps Jarkko's date is the European (region 2 DVD) release date?

This is brilliant news, especially as it was one of the shows I attended last year. DVD and CD of the same show, what a treat to look forward to. :D :D

I like the cover, and I'm glad the DVD is O2 (London July) as it was a phenomenal show and a major event. However, it seems that the CD is the same concert. I heard a rumour that they were ging to use the best versions of the songs from different concerts. This seemed like a good idea, but maybe the versions from different venues didn't hang together too well? I don't tend to play live CDS many times ("Live Songs" being an exception). I'll buy the CD in due course to complete my collection, but I won't be in any rush!

All good things, John E

Yes a shame that The Partisan and Famous Blue Raincoat are not on
this live CD as they were standouts for me in the Sydney show.
