The album is the first ever official footage of a live The Wall concert. Due to high demands on organization and room, there were four concerts following the release of The Wall in 1979 only (in New York, London, Los Angeles and Dortmund, 1980 to 1981).
In the beginning of the concert the band appeared on the stage with masks on their faces (see the cover of the album). No one knew that these people were not the actual Pink Floyd, but a so called "surrogate band." The four of them played the first song, In The Flesh?, like that, without anybody knowing that they were not the real Pink Floyd.
Only just when the real ones came to the stage, the fans recognized that they had been tricked. For Pink Floyd that was just another confirmation, that it was enough to look like Pink Floyd and the fans would go mad.
The deluxe edition is conceived as a book which includes photos from the show and the backstage with commentary from Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, Gerald Scarfe (cartoonist and illustrator, author of the animated parts of The Wall film, giant puppets for the live show and the album artwork), Jonathan Parker (the show coordinator), Mark Fisher (stage designer), and James Guthrie (sound engineer). The CDs are "hidden" on the endleaf.
