Guns N' Roses
2016 Las Vegas: Double Shot - XAVEL Silver Masterpiece Series
Catalog Number: SMS-069c - DVD #1 Liberated Bootleg
April 8, 2016
Las Vegas, Nevada
Lineage = 2016 Las Vegas: Double Shot DVD #1 [Silver] -> DVD Decrypter -> YOU
Four In-Ear Monitor feeds + AUD capture = Matrix Audio Recording + Multi-Cam Audience Video Recording
Sound Quality 9/10 - Double Shot is superior to all other GN'R 2016 Las Vegas sources out there, including Sin City Illusion I & II.
I've noticed that some of the random audience noises on the April 8th Double Shot source match up with background noise on Sin City Illusion I.
This gives me reason to believe that the 16/44 Limulus edit of my April 8th source was used as part of the Double Shot matrix.
As a fan of XAVEL's IEM+AUD recordings, I'm flattered.
If XAVEL had simply asked, I would have provided access to my raw 24/96 master recording so they'd have been able to produce a higher quality matrix.
If anyone associated with XAVEL is reading this, please be in touch!
While hanging out with Limulus in Las Vegas on the eve of the Guns N' Roses Double Shot at T-Mobile Arena,
I recall mentioning that I had a good feeling XAVEL would be on site capturing IEM feeds of both nights.
Upon learning XAVEL did in fact capture IEM feeds of both GNR Sin City reunion shows,
I immediately placed my order for 2 of the pressed 4CD/2DVD Las Vegas 2016: Double Shot packages.
The April 9th CDs and original footage Multi-Cam April 9, 2016 DVD5 of the Double Shot set will be shared soon!
NOTE: The Double Shot cover is shown on screen between virtually every song!
There is also a small XAVEL watermark on the lower right side of the screen for the duration of the video.
XAVEL must want people to be well aware of who produced this DVD.
I am *extremely* disappointed that 148 minutes of video content was crammed onto one DVD5 disc.
If XAVEL was insistent on using the obsolete DVD format for Double Shot, a DVD9 disc would have been much more appropriate.
The main angle is a wide angle full stage shot from the back of venue.
This angle reminds of me of those Montreal concert videos from the 80s that were shot by Pierre.
There are also two angles on the floor, right in front of the stage.
One on Duff's side and one on Slash's side. It may have been the same filmer.
The floor angle isn't used very often.
There was also an angle based in the left side of the lower bowl, that was used at the beginning of the show.
Please feel free to re-author this release onto a DVD9 or 2 DVD5 discs using the Double Shot lossless audio as a PCM soundtrack.
All I ask, is that you provide me with a copy of the finished product.
I'd like to encourage XAVEL to release both Double Shot video recordings on a single pressed 50GB Blu-Ray disc.
I'd happily buy the GNR Vegas 2016 performances if they were released in full HD/Hi-Vision.
In addition, I'd like to STRONGLY encourage Guns N' Roses Inc. to release both Las Vegas 2016 gigs in Blu-Ray/DVD/CD/Digital Download format.
Releasing the Vegas reunion shows would be easy money and would eradicate these pesky bootlegs!
