I noticed that too! The two locks coming from his temples were noticeably lighter than the rest. You normally don't see it because it's hidden by the rest of his hair on top but with it blown backward like that it was really visible.
Love and peace.

I found it on youtube. I downloaded it. It was amazing. The interview lady was a bit creepy though.

[Dare to be Stupid - Seems like Jon's drum pad wasn't functioning here. Still a good performance, and cool that we have 2 recording o
Smells Like Nirvana - It still baffles me how he is able to pull this song of vocally. Sounded great, minus a few sound effects missing
Handy - Bermudas mic wasn't working, nor was his drum pad, meaning we lost all the snare hits
Jeopardy - The snare is really loud. Also, laughing at the guy screaming "No!" when Don Pardo is listing off all the things Al didn't win
The Saga Begins - The crowd was really into this one. Unfortunately, Jim's guitar wasn't working for the beginning or end. And during the end, some guy was talking, so that sucked.
There were at least 3 feeds - our monitors, the audience mix, and the feed for DirecTV. My pad was definitely working and played in all the right places for the band mix, but I found out later that it was missing at times, at least on the streamed show. I don't know if it was working for the live audience. The guitar issue was apparently something onstage, as none of us had it, despite it working earlier in the show. And the unplugged medley snare mic was an issue during the run-through, but we couldn't trace it. Shouldn't have affected the mix, although we only hear what we hear from the monitor board.

Overall it was a good performance though. The few absolutely necessary fixes are in the works. :)

Someone mentioned TWO master recordings of the SOL tour? Is the other one from the Biography special or a different one? Also, is the BHT one from the Disney No Going Home Special or another one of the full BHT setlist?

There's No Going Home. It was fully recorded but not all of it was used.
