only just catching up with all this ...
I think it's a beautifully photographed video and I do like the concept, however ...
... the contrast between the 'before' and 'live' segments isn't great enough, as the 'before' segment looks like a live segment without the crowd. In that respect I think the Chili Pepper's 'Snow (Hey Oh)' video, which is one of my all time favourites, does a much better job of the contrast, as well as of the fan element (see below).
That said, the '45' shows the band we know and like to see and hear.
This is a good point, but I feel like an empty small bar to full small bar has less of an impact than empty arena to full arena. so maybe it's better to highlight "hey look how intimate and intense this show is" instead of "hey look they filled this tiny space"
