Default Who else is into concert DVD's ?

One of the things that has me excited about the new DVD section is having a convenient way to keep track of my concert DVD's. I've added 55 Concerts to the database to help in this regard. Concerts are mainly what I still watch on DVD and the only thing I still ocassionally buy on DVD. Of course I buy them on Blu-Ray if they are available but due to cost I rarely upgrade from DVD. I wanted to start a thread to discuss concert DVD's so hear it is.

I have plenty plenty of concerts on DVD. To be honest though, I no longer play any of them. One of the greatest advantages Blu-ray has (as far as I am concerned) is that live shows/concerts simply sound incredible. For me personally, the upgrade in quality here is even more dramatic than film's transition from DVD to Blu-ray.

Plus, Eagle Rock Entertainment have been absolutely incredible. With the exception of their Ted Nugent: Motor City Mayhem, which I could not bring myself to like, every other release has been simply amazing.

And Universal Music should release Depeche Mode: One Night in Paris already.

I couldn't have said it better myself. I rarely play my concert DVD's any longer (with the exception of The Eagles Farewell I Tour and a few others not available on BD), and that's simply because the AQ/PQ on Blu-ray is vastly superior to their DVD counterparts.

I still have a few Blu ray concerts but I like my DVD concerts (ordered 7 more this past week), sure the Audio PQ is better on the BD but I found that the AQ on the concert BDs I use to have were 1080i not much better looking than my upconverted DVDs...

I agree the AQ is normally superior on BR but I have so many that will never be on Blu. I can't however imagine not watching one of my Stevie Ray Vaughn, (older) Rush or Pink Floyd: Pulse, Etc... any more.

I tried playing an old Tangerine Dream disc I have a couple of weeks ago, and it was just horrible. The sounds was so incredibly flat, I could not believe how I had enjoyed it in the past.

The other night I was in the mood for some Annie Lennox, so I took out her Live In Central Park DVD.....I couldn't listen to it or watch it. A real bummer as I love Annie Lennox.

Just ordered from Amazon, Experience Hendrix (tribute) mainly for the Kenny Wayne Shepherd performances. Reviews were mostly good, hope the DVD is.

The DVD of The Dixie Chicks "An Evening With The Dixie Chicks: Live From The Kodak Theatre" is actually quite good.

Genesis - When in Rome
Phil Collins - Finally....The First Farewell Tour
Eagles - Farewell Tour
Leonard Cohen - Live in London
Depeche Mode - Devotional
Depeche Mode - Touring The Angel Live in Milan
Depeche Mode - One Night in Paris
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Live at Slane Castle

Does anyone know when/if these will be released on Blu-ray anytime soon? I remember Genesis was supposed to be but was cancelled. What's the status of it today?

I love music but only a few of those I like are on Blu-ray.

I don't have any info, Matti, but have to say that One Night in Paris should have been amongst the very first music releases to transition to Blu-ray. I've commented so many times on it.

I also keep hoping that Warner would release Everything But the Girl: Like the Deserts Miss the Rain. I would love to replace my DVD.

EBT are my favorite band.

I have a few concert VHS and DVDs. I have some Depeche Mode concert which is from the late 80's, I want to say. And I have the uncut Live Aus Berlin from Rammstein on VHS since the DVD is missing one of the songs. And I have Rammstein's two other DVD releases; Lichtspielhaus and Volkerball.

I'm really glad that I've not succumbed to the "it's not crystal clear A/V so I can't enjoy it anymore" disease.

I have footage of bands/musical events/concerts on DVD/DVD-R/blu-ray that true fans would give their eye-teeth for, and I still enjoy it immensely, and expect to for the rest of my life.

This is a Custom DVD cover I had made:

This live DVD from WEDNESDAY 13 was only sold in a Jewel case and I wanted to be able to display it with my other DVD's



I hope someday it gets a Blu-Ray release but until than the DVD will have to do

Me too, I have too many great performances not to watch them any more. Sure I prefer great AQ/PQ but prefer great performances even more.

Hey John

Only as far as non-rock music is concerned (I love EBTG because Tracey's voice is the best I have heard in my lifetime, and I have seen live quite a few great singers, from Sade to Mick Hucknall). Otherwise, I would go as far back as Deep Purple and Creedence Clearwater Revival (the Fortunate Son ). As sacrilegious as it may sound, I always thought that Creedence were a lot better than the Stones.

This cover is superb:


And this is pure bliss:

I heartily agree with you, Svet. Great, great band.

Picked up Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Runnin' Down A Dream for $8 new and enjoyed it quite a bit. Also picked up Neil Peart: Anatomy of a Drum Solo for $15 used (still sells for close to $50 new) and recommend it to any Peart fan. A lot of insight into where the ideas come from and of course a lot of ridiculous drumming. He's my single favorite musician (and lyricist) so of course my opinion is slanted but you don't have to be a drummer (I'm not) to appreciate it.
