I revisited a few tracks off this one recently, and admittedly I was kind of underwhelmed.

"Seven Bridges Road" is incredible, and it's worth buying the disc for that track alone, but the rest? Most of the music is in the fronts, the vocals and bass guitar are ONLY in the center channel, and the rears are mostly ambience with some light percussion and/or strings. You'd never know this was Scheiner's work, but in all fairness it's one of the first 5.1 mixes he ever did.

"Hotel California" (you can "see" the heavy center usage and that the rears mostly mirror the fronts):
38635

"Seven Bridges Road" (here the rears are fully engaged):
38636

The Farewell I Tour absolutely blows this away, if you ask me. That's a fully-discrete mix with the brass and keyboard isolated in the rears, and I like the setlist a lot more.

Interesting quote from the man himself, from a 1999 article.
I don't put too much of anything in the center channel anymore. I made a mistake with The Eagles, and on one song, I put Henley's voice just in the center speaker. This was the first time I had ever mixed in 5.1 and I didn't think about any of the possible ramifications of putting it in there-as far as people having the ability to really "eyeball" this vocal on the center speaker, just turn everything off and go, "Uh-huh, uh-huh, I can hear a punch there." So I won't ever do that again.
It's funny reading this now that we have all those Steven Wilson mixes with the totally-exposed dry vocals in the center 😆

I guess like with many things, people have to find their own way. Some can get certain things to work one way while others have to go a different route. It's probably that way also for both of these great masters - Scheiner and Wilson.

I'll be the first to admit it has made for fun auditioning with certain channels muted. I've listened to this mix with the center and LFE only, and again with the just center channel disabled for a quasi-karaoke mode. Both (IMHO) are very cool and each a quite interesting take on songs I've know so well.

After seeing and hearing edisonbaggins review i started wondering if i don´t have this disc but haven´t even looked at it. This was true, i have bought it very cheap some time ago. Well now i wanted to see it and the review is right, this is an very good surround video! The reason for me being slow with looking at it is that my big focus on this band is for the two first albums. The less "country" they became the less interested was i. But this was very enjoyable to watch so thanks for putting the spotlight on it! It is definitely worth having in your collection of surround material!
And the music is of course good i should add :)

I like this not as slick as there farewell bluray that is the beauty of this. They looked like they were having fun. The sound and mix are excellent which this was on bluray. Overall a solid concert that is fun to watch and listen to 9
