I don't think I ever got the video from Matt listed below. But here is the DVD version that I have of the show. This is the complete show, but a higher gen from a VHS tape. There is another version circulating that is 35 minutes of the performance and misses the last 4 songs. I will talk with Matt about getting the other transfer of this. The video itself is really good.

Initially, we had this recording from a random transfer and it was put under a lot of hiss reduction post-recording. I had a VHS tape of this recording and sent it off to my buddy Matt from the Depeche Mode Live Archive to transfer the video properly. In the process, he ripped the audio from the show and without any post work, it sounds amazing. Way better than the first transfer with I would assume was obsolete equipment. Big thanks to Matt for working on this for the archive! You can compare the new/old transfers with the sample above. If you really wanted to get into the minute details of the recording, there is 11 seconds missing from the new transfer at the beginning of 'Terrible Lie,' and even then, that was ripped from a lossy source and added into the previous version.
