Does anyone have any links to when and how the recording of the O2 Arena concert will be released? Hopefully not digitally - Blu-Ray would really capture the show well!

It would be great if it got international release - even if it was only on iTunes - then those of us geographically challenged could enjoy it as well.

I hope too it released internationally.

No one has said much about the New Generation DVD, it was only through Michael Falzon on facebook and Kerry Ellis and Will Stapleton and I think the people involved in the recording on Twitter that we found out and no one has said much else about it, I just really hope it WILL happen.

DVD's can take a while to put together, but luckily unlike a movie it doesn't take years of cutting and editing for a concert, the sound mixing however takes much longer to get right. I think the 2006 DVD was recorded in April 2006 and released November 2006, so about 6 months after the recorded took place, but it could be a long wait, maybe even christmas 2013. I hope though it is not that long :/

I know there were a few technical issues at the O2, which can be easily sorted on the DVD though

They said they are aiming for November or the quote was "It will be available in November"... which means it could even be later than that

I really hope though, that's not the case and they can release it sooner.
According to someone on the FB page, who spoke to Jeff after one of the shows in Germany, he said they would start work on the DVD when they all returned to the UK "They should be working on it right now" was the quote

So who knows? Maybe it'll take longer because of extras going on to the DVD? Sound editing takes a lot longer than the visual editing for concerts usually I think, since it'll probably be in Surround Sound, and the O2 show had a sound issue with Carrie's hologram which would need editing.



For the 2006 show, it was about 5-6 months from the day it was filmed to the day it was released so, we might get lucky?

Thing is, with releasing it in November it coincides with the Christmas rush and the thinking could be that it would sell more for people expecting to receive it for Christmas, although I'm sure true fans would buy it no matter when it is released

The Christmas-sell is a point for November.
And yes, Soundediting will take a lot of time - luckily there were just sound issues with Carries hologram...
We have had not hearable actors, because the band was too loud
I think, to fix that would be really hard (also little technical errors with the Fighting machine).

Indeed, it'll be a sell point

I think all they need to do with Carrie is add the vocals that SHOULD have been heard out of the front of house sound back into the mix of the DVD which will be easy, Jeff apparently mentioned that the in ear monitor mix sounded fine where as the front of house mix sounded off :/


Luckily, despite what people may have heard out of front out house during the show they were at, for a DVD they can mix and remix the instruments and vocals so the whole thing is balanced but that's why it'll take a lot of time, especially with all the elements of the New Generation show . Notice that in a live show the acoustic drums usually overpower everything else, yet with a DVD, they no longer do so, it's all about balance and of course syncing the visuals with the music can take time too

Were there any technical faults with the Fighting Machine at the London O2 show? I noticed there was at the show in Holland, the Heat Ray didn't strike when it should have ect

i live in germany and visited the show nurnberg.
if there were difficulties in uk with the tripod, i don't know...

and yes - for a recording, every instrument and vocal has it's own channel, as far as i know, so the remix shouldn't be the problem when you have the timecodes

On some performances it did misfire but then again you could claim it wasn't supposed to, the only important ones are the first and the last!
