    Live at Budokan Blu-ray article

    Can anyone confirm the audio format for this release? Eagle Rock (or most concert videos) are shot in 1080i and I'm okay with that. But I'm wondering if it'll be lossless or lossy? If it's lossless, YAY! And what format? DTS-HD MA? Dolby TrueHD? LPCM? All three?

    I've been waiting for a DT Blu-ray and this is great news. I just hope the audio is "hi-def" and more Blu-rays are on the horizon (esp. Score).

    Also: Was it mentioned on this web site? I missed it if it was.

    I can't wait until Tuesday!

Blu-ray.com lists it as a single disc.

I would assume that the audio options will be LPCM 2.0, Dolby Digital 5.1, and DTS-HD 5.1. This seems to be standard for other Eagle Rock Blu-ray releases (such as Deep Purple's [i]Live at Montreux 2006[/i] and Heaven & Hell's [i]Live from Radio City Music Hall[/i]).

None of the articles have confirmed audio format, but past Eagle Rock Entertainment Blu-rays have been lossless so there's hope.

Eagle Rock has confirmed an October 18th release date for the Blu-ray edition of DREAM THEATER's 2004 video Live In Budokan.

According to a press release, "Live at Budokan presents an entire three-hour performance at Tokyo's famed Budokan arena on April 26, 2004, along with a bonus disc rich in supplementary material. Disc 1 finds the metallic progressive-rock quintet at its awe-inspiring best, plowing through its catalog of dramatic epics and jack-hammer instrumentals, including five of the seven songs from 2003's Train of Thought. Disc 2 features an extended drum solo from percussionist extraordinaire Mike Portnoy; gear tours from guitarist John Petrucci and keyboardist Jordan Rudess (fascinating for lay people and downright revelatory for musicians); and a half-hour documentary on DT's 2004 stint in Japan punctuated by tantalizing snippets of band rehearsals. The shooting and editing for the concert are a music lover's dream, with lengthy shots that linger on the performances of individual band members. Disc 2 takes this even further with a multi-angle sequence of the 12-minute 'Instrumedley'."

I saw this on the BW&BK web site. Eagle Rock i believe said it would be released this month.

I would love to get my hands on a bluray version of this concert! I was there for this recording and it was definitely a show that will stick with me till the end of my time. It would be nice to have a super high def version of that memory no doubt.

All the sites that have posted press releases have been the releases from the DVD. Amazon lists this Blu-ray as only having one-disc, while all the articles are still talking about the two-disc DVDs.

Would be nice to get a confirmation from the band on this. As they weren't on RR at the time I doubt they'll be involved.

I thought this was still unconfirmed at this point. I saw the track listing for the supposed audio and there's apparently a bunch of bonus tracks.
