Pictures taken during the rehearsal, sound track recording (yes, Eric used the tube as a musical instrument).

This happened right before our performance. The countdown you see top/right is the time left before Kim and I jumped on stage. How cool that we did light-tube right after a music-tube session. At 1:25 on that video, my heart stopped beating ;) Thanks Samajam. *Update: this video seems to be visible only from Canada. - Said Eric-
