Best Concerts on Blu-ray Disc and DVD

Surely depends on musical taste, but not listed here yet is Steven Wilson, Get All You Deserve. Fantastic concert in Mexico City with video and surround audio out of this world, played but wat has to be one of the best rock bands in the planet today.

Someone mentioned Supertramp In Paris 1979. Also a great Blu-Ray.

Re: Best Concerts on Blu-ray Disc and DVD

Indeed, Get All You Deserve is superb!

Here are a few more to add to the growing list of excellent concert films, and I'll refrain from naming other Gilmour shows, etc. The list below forced some tough choices (and a little cheating) because most of the listed artists have other live shows that are also must-haves, at least for me. It's hard to resist simply citing every concert disk I've purchased (kind of a long list), but I will. So here are a baker's dozen (from a range of genres) that have yet to be named, in alphabetical order:

Jeff Beck - Live at Ronnie Scott's
Clapton's Crossroads shows (all of 'em - sorry for cheating)
Al DiMeola - Speak a Volcano
Steve Hackett - Live Fire and Ice
Hiromi - Live in Marciac
Stanley Jordan Trio - The Paris Concert
Pat Metheny - Speaking of Now Live
Opeth - Live at the Royal Albert Hall
Return to Forever - Live at Montreaux
Riverside - Reality Dream
Steve Vai - Live at the Astoria London
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Live from Austin Texas
...and I'm still waiting for my favorite, which will be:
Frank Zappa/The Mothers - Roxy and Elsewhere (Come on Dweezil, you promised me that it would be released last year!)

Obviously, that's a far from a complete list, but I think they're all essentials (but, yes, it surely depends upon one's musical taste). Still, when mentioning Metheny, how could I not suggest The Orchestrion Project (more cheating), which is the most amazing 'one man band' I've ever witnessed.

Re: Best Concerts on Blu-ray Disc and DVD

Thanks for reawakening an excellent thread, Kevin.

Another one that stands out in my mind for picture, audio and performance:
Joe Satriani - Live from San Francisco

Here's one with only fair to good quality audio and video, but sports a spectacular performance:
Allman Brothers Band - Live at the Beacon Theater

And last but not least, this one has a surprising combination of all three metrics that just makes the experience rewarding:
Live from Austin, TX (Austin City Limits) - Norah Jones

No problem. Often, old threads disappear for good reason, but it seems to me that there's a lot of useful stuff in this one that is the very reason we build our systems in the first place.

I'll have a dig through my DVDs and see if anything else catches my eye. Haven't found much on BluRay, but I have quite a few concert DVDs and if the picture leaves something to be desired, the sound certainly doesn't.

Here's one I forgot I had bought that surfaced a few weeks ago.

Rush: 2112 5.1 (DVD)

I have this on DVD as well and it is a great performance, If it ever became available on Blu-ray I would purchase it again.

Both of you probably know this already, but it bears repeating... Just because something is on Blu Ray, doesn't mean it will have high-quality picture and sound. Sometimes the Blu Ray release is just a copy of the DVD. It pays to check out online reviews before buying!

While I'm here, might as well toss another into the ring for its undeniably high-quality performance:
John Mayer - Where the Light Is (Live in Los Angeles)

A great concert. I wasn't a big John Mayer fan but purchased this one based on the positive feedback. Highly recommended!
