The interview includes clips of another interview with band founder Bob Hartman. There are also fan interviews as they arrive the concert, and an interview to producer Peter Furler.

Another special feature is the band's rehearsal before the concert.[3]

Missing Material[edit]

There were three songs that didn't make it into the album or DVD. They were "Judas' Kiss", "Lord I Lift Your Name on High" and "C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N". The first two were cut to save space, while the latter wasn't intended to be in the CD. "Just something for fun we threw in" as Hartman said.[4] During one of the takes of Hartman's guitar solo, he broke a string. While he was fixing it, Paul Simmons delivered an impromptu drum solo which was also cut from the album and DVD. As the president of Inpop Records said "That was really spontaneous, if you remember... We did not get a clean run at it."[4]

The live recordings of "Judas' Kiss" and "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High" eventually appeared on Bob Hartman and John Schlitt's album, performing as II Guys from Petra, Vertical Expressions.
