Sometime in the 1980's, Journey released a live video on MTV featuring parts of this very concert. Fortunately, it's now on CD in its entirety (or I think its entirety - I wasn't there). This was the band at their commercial apex, featuring 8 out of the 10 songs from Escape. Also included are three very good solos by various members. A lot of this album was released several years earlier on Greatest Hits Live, so it may come as a bit of a disappointment that so much here was already previously avaialbe. Still, it was a nice, full concert. They put out a DVD release as well.
