    Dinosaur Jr happily invites fans to create audio tapes of their live performances as long as the venue allows for this. We are asking that fans please refrain from shooting video of these reunion performances as we are preparing a special DVD which will include footage from this tour.
    Thanks for understanding.

    yeah, well please try to include some shots of the crew, the crowd, and J’s butt and sneakers, oh and I hope you have a close-up shot of that broken D string in action, because the life of a rock star comes with all sorts of enticing perks but I don’t think most people are aware of the dangers.

    the band’s videotapers did a lot of crowd shots in London, I agree I hope to see a lot of these on the DVD, all the enthusiasm & movement :D

    i hope this dvd comes out well because i was a little disturbed to see the fans all pushed back from the stage last night in DC so the filming dude could prance around and get closeups :(

    awww, sorry to hear that.
    in London there was a gap between crowd and stage, where the tapers were recording, but in Berlin we stood right in front of the stage. and in Berlin, the videotapers were acting very decent, almost all the time only on stage, no pushing people around.

    I think for shots out of the crowd they should wait until they are in venues with a reeling in front of the stage.

    yes, i’m not sure if it’s become a normal practice for that venue to make an aisle/railing in front of the stage and have bouncers stand in it to keep folks back, or if they only do that for sold-out shows, but i seem to recall seeing shows there recently that did not have such a thing.

    just a quick note for those that don’t know.

    The user account Dinosaur Jr is in fact being used by the J, Lou, Murph and their management.

    don’t stare at the sun.
    thanks

    I was wondering why I got crammed up against the wall in the middle of the show.

    It would be totally sweet if the first, say, 1000 copies of the dvd would come with a bonus cd of a complete live show. Motorhead did that with their 25th anniversary dvd, so Dino would be following an illustrious precedent. Plus, I really need to get a professionally recorded version of "Tarpit" the way they’ve been playing it. It’s outta hand.

    sure, as long as those 1st 1000 copies were offered to <b> folk first…
    i’d hate to miss out on that because i was slow on the draw or not logged on the day they go on sale.

    Does anyone know a possible release date for this? Hopefully before October so Mrs Durly can buy it for my birthday.
    Wonder if they’ll record the YLAOM show at Koko in August.
    Agree, one disc with old and new stuff and another disc with an entire show from the current tour would be excellent.
