Here is the complete pro shot of Paul McCartney's 3/7/90 show at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, during the third leg of his triumphant "Flowers in the Dirt" world tour. This is certainly watchable, though you need to spend a couple of minutes with it to allow your eyes (and standards) to adjust to the color bleed and fuzzy images. This appears to be sourced from a VHS tape several generations removed from the master, so you have all of the hallmarks typical of multiple analog generations -- distortion/fuzz at the top and bottom of the screen, loss of clarity and resolution, and color wash-out. However, in the absence of a lower-generation upgrade, this is a nice souvenier of the tour.

On the plus side, the camera work is very professional and captures multiple angles/perspectives without employing the hyperactive modern-era technique of switching camera angles constantly. The audio soundtrack -- given that it's an analog video -- sounds pretty good and is well-mixed. Once you get used to the visual limitations, this is actually pretty good.

There was some discussion in the comments in the original posting about this video's origin -- I believe the conversation landed on agreement that this was never aired in Japan (either free or to a paying audience). If anyone has any further information on this, I'd appreciate it.
