DVD Errors[edit]

The 2001 DVD release contains errors not present on the original VHS and Laserdisc releases. According to sources close to the band, there are no plans to fix the errors at this time:

  • The video for "Bringin' On the Heartbreak (with Phil Collen)" contains a repeat of the audio from "Bringin' On the Heartbreak (with Pete Willis)" instead of the normal, remixed audio.
  • During "Pour Some Sugar On Me (UK Version)" the audio originally contained demolition sounds such as glass breaking and walls crumbling while the house they were performing in was torn down around them. The sounds have been removed from the DVD release.
