Re: Best Concerts on Blu-ray Disc and DVD

Okay, now I am super impressed. Just took delivery of a brand-spanking new copy of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd & Second Helping Live" on Blu Ray. Complete with HD Master audio track, this performance is simply amazing, IMHO. Both audio and video are top-notch, and synchronize well. What I mean to say is that some concert videos swap camera angles willy-nilly without regard for musical context. This concert has a nice visual flow that doesn't give you whiplash trying to follow the on-stage action. This review on Amazon says it better than I.

Muse - H.A.A.R.P. - Live at Wembley Stadium 2007. I used to like Muse - saw this video and then I REALLY liked them! Great energy live.

I watched some of the Muse concert last night and thought I wouldn't mind having some of their music.
I caught a couple of their performances on the Palladia Channel. My all time favorite is "Supermassive Black Hole". I almost freaked when seeing front man Matt Bellamy's showmanship and psychedelic LED glasses! Most cool.

Re: Best Concerts on Blu-ray Disc and DVD

Here is my list, simply based on the fact that I keep going back to them time and again…

Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour-Live from Melbourne
Eagles - Hell Freezes Over
Adele - Live at The Royal Albert Hall
Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains the Same
Michael Jackson - This Is It

Thanks guys for the other inputs, I will definitely be looking into them.

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)
Yes, absolutely, I always read reviews for audio and video quality especially if it is going to be a double dip.

I am a big John Mayer fan and love that album, the audio and video quality are excellent.

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

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.

And last but not least, this one has a surprising combination of all three metrics that just makes the experience rewarding:

Thanks for reawakening an excellent thread, Kevin.
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)

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
