An ok recording. There are a lot of talkers around and a few screamers/sing along fans. Still a very enjoyable recording.

This was added back on June 27th, 2009 as a shitty iPod video conversion. Remember that was a thing at one point? lol. Anyways, thanks to Frank G. for taking a drive of the archive's collection and editing the footage for me to something that I could present on the archive. Being on the floor its hard to keep your camera still above your head to get a shot above the crowd as well as having people bump into your arm. So at times it shaky, but there are some good zoom in shots here and there. Overall, for a 107 minute show, I think the camera work was decent and was happy with the results. This show on the tour was a “NIN Only” show. Jane’s Addiction was slated to play Lollapalooza that August and due to contractual agreements, could not play in Chicago prior. This was the start of a 3 day NIN road trip with my brother and I that we called “the nin binge.” It was a great trip, seeing them here, Indianapolis and then back home in Michigan. It was a lot of driving, but a great time seeing our favorite band. Also noted that there was an encore on the setlist that sadly was not done because of curfew. There is a DVD version floating around as well. But that is in standard def. Enjoy the new edit!

Recorded from the right-rear risers at Charter One Pavilion in HD. The recording was released in SD as a dual layer DVD. This also includes Street Sweeper Social Club's opening set. The camera maxes out on the zoom and can only go so far. I would love to see this footage in high-def if it is out there. Show is synced with source 2 audio.

JW sent this over to the archive a few years ago. This was shot an SD Panasonic PV-GS400 camera from the front-left. Good camera work and this was synced with Source 1 audio. The last two songs were not recorded.

Albawild's YouTube page was from over a decade ago and there has not been much activity on it in the last handful of years. There is a lot of footage from the tour from the rail. Some really great shots. Yes it is in SD, but I can get on board with it for how amazing it is. Filmed from the rail and this is pretty much a complete show! Awesome stuff! Here are a few noticeable skips during the recording below: end of Piggy/beginning of Metal, first verse of Burn, first verse of Suck , a few seconds in the middle of Hurt, and intro of HLAH.
