See everyone right in front of me
What an incredible technology!!! It is so thrilling to get to close to individual persons of the audience. Moving right and left allows me to see the stadium from different angles of view and when I zoom to Larry;s drums I feel as if I stood on the stage myself. I hope that will be done at every show!

Zoom into the left bridge on the stage and you will see shoes walking without a body, ooh spooky. it's great how you can see all the faces even toward the back, but next time make sure you guys take the shot with nobody on stage, LOL.
