Filmed by 2 separate cameras within the audience, both from very similar positions - 1 is directly in front of the stage at the back of the arena, the other is slightly to the left of stage. The first camera position never zooms in, however it has an excellent, unobstructed view of the stage. The second does use the zoom, and follows Prince
around the stage with some fantastic results. One of the annoyances of both camera angles used here is that there is a large metal pole running from the ground up to the sound rig - and even though it is quite thin, it is slap-bang centre shot whenever Prince is in the middle of the stage. They have been mixed together very well (with some special effects thrown in), however to synch them up, the person editing has had to pause the picture occasionally - which looks rather.....crappy. The picture quality can also be rather grainy in parts, and the sound quality isn't the best (with a group of women constantly screaming and yelling) - however all that said - it's still a very enjoyable release. Mayte guests on stage to dance during 'The One', and for the encore Doug E Fresh comes on and manages to ruin both 'Erotic City' and 'Sign O' The Times' by "rapping" (using the term loosely) all over them.
