Lastly, there was also a Blu-ray release which includes a 2D and 3D recording of the show. All three packages also include the behind-the-scenes tour documentary, Just Add Water.
For the live album, Kylie's talk with the audience, between "There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart)" and the mashup between "Can't Beat the Feeling" and "Love at First Sight" and also between "Better the Devil You Know" and "Better Than Today" were shortened.
