Thanks to Vienna for granting permission to capture the set. I've only my first show to serve as a point of reference, but I thought both sets were absolutely superb.
Both 16-bit / 44.1 kHz (for Red Book CD) and 24-bit / 176.4 kHz (for DVD-Audio, more than 4x the resolution of CD) available for those interested. Complete uncompressed file set is > 8GB, so I suspect I will upload just the .flac16 unless there is demand for the 24-bit. If you have 24-bit playback capability, I highly recommend the show in this form; the master was captured with some of the finest-sounding solid-state 2-track hardware available anywhere in the world.
I will refrain from uploading the sets in their entirety until granted permission from moderators, but I sincerely hope the evening may be distributed far and wide.
