Year Page Guide
All other shows that do not have audience or professional recordings are shown in dimmed text.
Regular text is used to indicate that a recording of some kind exists for the show. However, due to some shows being in both regular text and blue text (example: Zürich 2009), there are some shows with recordings that are listed in blue as well.
Blue is used to indicate a rescheduled show. See the show page for more info on it. As mentioned above, a few of these shows have recordings.
Orange-colored text is used to indicate a cancelled show. See the show page for more info on it.

Intros/Outros: Any time the song is performed differently than the studio version, the intro/outro/change is listed. Most of the names are from LPLive staff and the community but a few (the AMBO intro of 'What I've Don', for example) come from the band. Some songs

Example: If Mike raps a verse of 'Petrified' over the intro of 'Points Of Authority' or if 'Sabotage' (Beastie Boys) is performed during the bridge of 'Bleed It Out'. Information on new setlists that are played will be in Show Notes as well.
"Comebacks": If a song is performed that hasnâ€™t been played in quite a while, or is either dropped or added to a setlist it was not in at the time, this is mentioned.

We attempt to list every single known recording of a show. Please do NOT ask for recordings that are NOT listed on the live guide in the forum. If there is a recording, it is listed - otherwise, we know of no recording of the show. LPLive does NOT host any recordings of shows; we provide just info and samples. This is an example of the sources (and their formats) that are listed in the live guide:
Source X: Audio/Video - PROSHOT/AUD/... (TV channel/Equipment info)
Location: Where the source was recorded from in relation to the stage
Taper: Alias / real name (alias)
Time: In minutes and seconds
Format: DVD (generation)/lossless/mp3.../ file size
Comments: Comments on the recording itself
Note: Each source number stands for an individual source, where letters (a, b, ...) stand for various edits/recordings of the same source material.
New in 5.0: Source 0 (and variations of the zero number, like 0a, 0b, etc) are official sources that are generally not allowed to be shared in the forums. For more information about those, see the LPL terms and/or rules in the forums. For the format of the official sources, we list the song and the format; further information on where it was released can generally be found in Other Notes as well as in a list in the wiki.
