    It seems most music is shot with TV cameras, and therefore 4:3. Now that I have a big widescreen TV, I'd love to know of some that are shot in widescreen.

    I have one- Queen's 'We Will Rock You' and it is GREAT.

    If anyone knows of others, please post them. Thanks.

    Bruice Springsteen does a live performace 2-disc DVD set that is an awesome HD downconversion (16x9). Incredible. It looks practically HD on a 100" screen.

    What *really* ticks me off are music videos that are 4x3 lbxed!!! if they knew they were going to be widescreen videos to start with...why didn't they record/edit them in 16x9 to provide better resolution? Ugh.

    Roger Waters - In The Flesh
    This is from his US tour in 2000 and was filmed at the concert held in Portland. I went to the show immediately after at "The Gorge" in George, Washington. The way the band played and acted on stage was practically identical (no complaints here!). The DVD sounds awesome, probably better than live (although I was pretty amazed at how excellent the sound at the concert was).
    Lots of good oldies from The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, etc, and some of his newer stuff. Also, if I remember correctly, it was pretty cheap.
    Rick.

    The new "Brian Setzer; Live in Japan" is a good 16x9. Not the absolute best video as there are some very tricky comprsession issues to tackle with very colorful stage clothes and sets, but the audio is AMAZING!

    I'm not a huge fan of "Godsmack", but it's the best 16x9 concert video I've seen. Absolutely hi-def looking!

    Godsmack and Nine Inch Nails are both 16x9 with great transfers.

    My favorite "widescreen concerts":

    Diana Krall: Live in Paris

    Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense

    Coming soon (5/7?) the amazingly spectacular and possibly unequaled in the annals of rock-n-roll film history (and also in anamorphic widescreen): "THE LAST WALTZ"

    Another 16x9 concert disc not mentioned so far is Paul Simon - You're The One.
    My personal favorite is the Springsteen set. Over three hours of great Bruce concert footage from a HD transfer. Could a Springsteen fan ask for anything more?
