    I was at BB today looking for something in the rock or electronic genre to watch. I was looking at DVDs from Nine Inch Nails, Linkin Park, Moby and a couple of others - but I didn't buy any of them because I got the feeling that none of them were widescreen.. Bad enough that Tool's DVD video compilation wasn't, that still bums me out.

    Anyone know of any that are?

    Oasis: Familiar to Millions is widescreen (16x9)

    Queen: We Will Rock You is also 16x9

    The Freddie MErcury Tribute concert was broadcast in 4x3, but the DVD release has been cropped to 16x9 by the director.

    U2 Rattle & Hum is widescreen. I don't think it is anamorphic though.

    Cranberries Beneath The Skin: Live in Paris is anamorphic

    The only problem is that there are some annoying sync issues and the menus are horrific. Supposedly a remaster is underway.

    Otherwise it's a killer 5.1 track

    If ya get Queen "We Will..." make sure you get the NEW remastered version! Older DVD is fullscreen and awful!

    Do you have to perform in Paris for it to be widescreen? I sense a trend here.[​IMG]
