I just got back from the Taking Back Sunday show at the House Of Blues here in Chicago a little bit ago and there were at least a couple of professional quality cameras filming the entire set, including one on a crazy robotic crane. The band didn't mention anything about them, but I'm guessing a potential DVD coming soon.
