Well, the slide is shown in slow motion, so everyone will be in different
positions when the action starts.  That didn't phase me.  Now, the missing
crowd, on the other hand, should have been a giveaway.

So, the original film had video spliced in from the laser show (I knew
that), Pete's slide and an ending from the second take.  Plus, there's a
point where the audio switches from the first take to the second, and the
ending is from the second?

The problem I have with that explanation is that the ending of the film
version and the multi-angle look and sound so similar, that I can't believe
they're two separate takes.  Pete tossing the cymbal in the air and into his
guitar looks the same in the film and the mulit-angle, but you're saying
they're from two different takes.  If that's so, then their performance was
planned to the point of doing the same moves at the same point in the song.
I need to get the versions side by side to convince myself.  I've got a new
computer coming soon with a DVD rom.  That should make it easier.
