Not sure if this is new fottage to be released but I've never seen it before and thought I would share it with you all.

I haven't finished watching it all yet but has some great camera angles of the guys upclose. Also, Darren's got some neat sunglasses.

EDIT: It's Jackson Cannery and Song For The Dumped, along with arguably the longest stool throw??

I checked setlist fm and it didn't have any songs in it. Maybe a more knowledgable person on the board would be able to share their wisdom on such matters and enlighten us?

I would imagine that their setlist would have been a lot more substantial than these two songs due to how big they were in Japan and the fact it is a festival where they would probably have had at least 30 mins to one hour. Perhaps this is the only surviving footage and the rest was scrapped by the broadcasters?
