I really didn't expect much, most bands with 40+ years under their belts are looking a little bored and tired but The Moody Blues still rock out like it's 1980!
There are 20 songs with not a lame one in the bunch. The video quality is better than any other concert disc I've seen so far and the audio is right up there as well. Most important, the band was cookin' that night and the live audience was in to the show.
So many great songs but I have to say "Isn't Life Strange" was the standout with many others not too far behind. Thanks to everyone involved for such a great disc!
So what is your favorite concert?

Those are precisely my sentiments regarding "Eagles Farewell I". I have two copies of it and am wearing it out on my 3 active players.
Never been a huge Moody Blues fan ... but I guess I should check this out.
Eagles: Farewell Tour is also awesome!!
Toto: 25th Anniversary is also a favorite of mine.
I too, have never been a big fan of the Moody Blues, but will check it out.
On the other hand, I was very disappointed in "Deep Purple: Live in Montreux". I thought it was a horrible concert.(lead singer was not good) Just my opinion though.
I have the "Heart" concert on SDDVD and would definitely like to get it on HD if I can find it at a good price.
The Wilson sisters were on top of their game for this one.
Also, Cream at the Royal Albert Hall was a pleasant suprise. Not being a huge Cream fan, my expectations were low. This is an excellent show IMHO!

I totally agree, although I like the Earth, Wind, and Fire part of the concert more than the Chicago part
Third favorite for me is Song Remains The Same. It would be #1 if they had gotten rid of those silly dream sequences.
+1 has awesome concert look and sound stage. When I watch it, I FEEL like I'm there.

TrueHD = DTS-MA = LPCM
Low Bit Rate AVC > Low Bit Rate VC-1
High Bit Rate VC-1 > High Bit Rate AVC
MPEG-2 = Great for DVD and that's about it.
The worst disc without a doubt is the Method Man disc. (Great music--lousy AQ, lousy PQ)
I don't own this title and never really thought about getting it ... until now. Just ordered it
Has anyone seen the Pat Metheny Group Concert HD DVD- THE WAY UP?
Yes, note it's 1080i, so my de-interlaced screenshots may not be the best:
"If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music." ~ Keith Richards
I think Cream is also not available in BD. And ofcourse my vote goes for Cream.
Can only say this is the best so far... I thought concerts via the dish were great. Maybe so, but we need adjectives for what lies beyond great because this is so much better.
Can't wait to get more concert disks!
For me, it's
#1) R. Kelly
#3) Nine Inch nails
#5) Robbie Williams (UK import)
I've been trying to update the first post with favorites of posters here. I did get your vote on R. Kelly. Have I missed something, if so I'll add it. I could add Robbie Williams as mentioned.
