    This is good news. Single Video Theory sounded amazing in 5.1

    I can't find anything about the DVD on a website e.g. Amazon.

    What's it called?

    I hope it is Region 1 as I can't play English Region 2!

    Epic Records to Release Pearl Jam DVD on April 10
    "Pearl Jam: Touring Band 2000" Includes Two Hours
    of Live Concert Footage From 2000 US Tour
    DVD to contain 50 minutes of special band and crowd bonus features

    NEW YORK -- Epic Records will release the first Pearl Jam full length DVD featuring three hours of live and montage footage from the band's 2000 US and European tours. The DVD will be available beginning April 10 at retail outlets. It will be available via the band's website at pearljam.com beginning April 3 for Ten Club members. VHS format will also be available.

    The main body of the DVD program is comprised of 28 full song performances filmed in various cities on the band's 2000 48-city US tour, reflecting the time and composition of an actual concert set list. The DVD was filmed by Pearl Jam crew members without directors or producers. An additional fifty minutes of special bonus features includes footage from the band's 2000 European tour, backstage footage, previously unreleased music, special consumer chosen camera angles, the previously unreleased video for "Oceans," and more.

    Special bonus features:
    -- Stationary "Matt-cam" footage is available with a heavier percussion mix for two of the songs featured on the main body of the DVD: "Evacuation" and "Even Flow" and also for "In My Tree."

    (The "Matt-cam" is a special camera positioned behind drummer Matt Cameron that the consumer can switch to while viewing the DVD.)

    -- European montages: City, band, and fan montages from the European tour with "Yellow Ledbetter" live and previously unreleased instrumentals recorded by Pearl Jam during early Binaural sessions. Instrumentals titled: "Thunderclap," "Foldback," and "Harmony."

    -- Outtakes of band on US tour, set to the song "Smile"

    -- "Do The Evolution" video- animated by Todd McFarlane

    -- "Oceans" video- never before released in the US directed by Josh Taft

    Pearl Jam has always filmed its live shows for archival purposes, but the idea to compile a selection of songs from the US shows and release them on a DVD evolved over the course of last year's tour. The band began by posting stills from each of the European shows on its website as they had done on their 1998 tour, then started posting 30-second live clips. The feedback was very positive and fans were asking for more. As a result, the band expanded the roles of three of its touring crew members to include videoing each of the shows from different positions in the house to see what they could come up with.

    The newly formed film crew began playing around with some of the footage on an AV production bus out on the road. About midway through leg one of the US tour, they presented some of the footage to the band. At that point, they were contemplating creating a web video using one or more songs.

    Kelly Curtis, the band's manager, explains how the project progressed: "The band liked what they saw, and the idea of creating a mock set list of songs from different cities on the tour and releasing them via DVD came up."

    Crew members went to work, juggling their regular tour jobs with filming, producing and editing footage out on the road and after the tour ended. "About three months later, the band had a full length DVD that everyone was excited about--it's very raw and realistic footage done without directors or producers, and it gives fans a chance to see a little more behind the scenes stuff than has previously been available," says Curtis.

    DVD footage filmed by Pearl Jam crew members: Liz Burns, Steve Gordon and Kevin Shuss.

    Edited by Steve Gordon. Recorded and mixed by Brett Eliason and engineered by John Burton.
