Is there another must-own that I have missed?

Cheers!
The Justin Timberlake concert's audio mastering isn't great. Not recommended. The only other one I have on that list is the John Mayer one, which I do recommend. It sounds really good and lively.

+1. This is the only concert Blu I've seen. It is flat out awesome, no matter the year of release. The camera angles and timing by Scorsese are impeccable. Can't go wrong with uncompressed 5.1 either.

Yeah, you've got to hate those people that set-up their own charity organizations to benefit well over 80 different causes and do at least one free show every year to benefit a particular city's causes.

Hall & Oates at the Troubadour is pretty darn good-sounding (and it is in TrueHD) if ya dig that sort of thing (I was surprised to find that I still liked 'em a lot, didn't know if I would).

Many of the concert and music Blu-rays with some type of lossless audio offer very good to excellent fidelity depending on your music taste.

Chris Botti Live with Orchestra and Special Guests Blu-ray has a bandwidth killing 5.1 PCM 96kHz/24-bit/13.8mbps track. It'll make even a low end system sound bombastic with exquisite sonic detail and great enveloping surround sound.

If you enjoy Opera or Classical type releases, I viewed Mozart: Die Zauberflote released by Opus Arte on Blu-ray which is also excellent. Didn't get get a chance to check bitrates but the disc came with a 2.0 PCM and 5.1 PCM track.

I was hoping to buy Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 2 Resurrection on Blu-ray, but apparently it has only been released on HD DVD so just placed an order for it, which contains only a 2.0 DD track but does have a 5.1 Dolby TrueHD track on it. Read some excellent reviews so far. It seems many of the Opus Arte releases have great audio tracks and I believe BDs get PCM tracks for both 2.0 and 5.1 while HD DVDs get DD for 2.0 and TrueHD for 5.1

As others have mentioned, Dave Matthews Band, AC/DC, Nine Inch Nails are all good choices. I also enjoyed Kanye West: Late Orchestration on HD DVD, which is available on Blu-ray. Both versions contain DTS-HD MA for 5.1 sound and Blu-ray gets a 2.0 PCM track, superb LFE and crisp tones for the orchestra instruments and voices on 5.1

Tenacious D Master Works 2.

It is a really fun concert and its a pretty solid transfer.
Really good documentary on the disk as well.

In regard to the Beyonce Blu-Ray:

No. Blu-Ray reviewer says: "There is no doubt, this is a first rate production, and no complaints can be found in terms of video presentation." They rated it 4/5, but if there are no complaints, I think it should be a 5/5.

Have played this BD probably more than any other I own (perhaps rivalling the Chris Botti disc). I like it so much I bought the 5 LP Live In Gdansk boxset!.

My Elton John @ 60 should be arriving any day now. I Netflixed it sometime back and looking forward to owning. I enjoyed the breadth of material from Elton's catalog and the audio/video was inpecable. The 24bith PCM made it a great listen.
