eigenvalues of left and right eigenvectors are not same

Hi,
I have a problem wrt eigenvalue calculation using the eig() function. I have two complex matrix A and B, both of which are of size 576x576 . I calculated the right eigenvectors and eigenvalues using eig(A,B) and the left eigenvectors and eigenvalues using eig(A.',B.'). I assume the eigenvalues calculated should be same. I have proved this from a trial of two small 3x3 complex matrix. But for the A and B, I got some close eigenvalues and also very different ones. I do not know why? Any idea on this is appreciated. Thanks
