Bruce Springsteen Live in Dublin is coming to DVD & BluRay on June 5. As a huge Springsteen fan and a HD-DVD owner ( can't afford both and already owned a 360 ), it's my first taste of missing an important ( to me ) title. I guess I'll make due with the DVD.

I think I heard about that somewhere.

Sounds good to me.

I don't know if this will come to fruition but, people are at least talking about it and are on the case as it relates to Blu- ray.

By "this" I mean getting the performances from 2007 Grammys on a high-def optical disc with a sound tract audiophiles will appreciate.

I haven't checked but I'm guessing that the last time the Grammys was on DVD was in 2001 or so ? ?
(DVD by Sony) and since then, nobody has gotten it out on a commercial disc for home use.

This year's past show had some really splendid performances that I would love to add to my Blu-ray library.

This lady got the loudest standing ovation for a performance that night ....

That's "Gnarls" Barkley .................

And of course,(a clip that I posted before on some other thread) when you're introduced by Stevie Wonder with the intro "And I love all 3 of these fresh, powerful and uniquely talented individuals"- you know it doesn't get any better than that .................

P.S.
Actually one of the people that is a decision maker to getting this out on Blu-ray is in the audience seated around the mini-stage that Gnarls Barkley almost slips off while coming down the steps.

Bought the NIN Blu-ray, just skimmed through it so far, have to say great PQ and AQ.

Having said that, I didn't find the PQ much better than the "Motley Crue, Lewd, Crued, and Tattooed" concert on D-VHS.

Any chance of seeing Seal, Eagles, The Corrs, Eric Clapton, on Blu-ray???

I have these concert dvds (DTS) and they sound pretty good.

I would love to see in HI-DEF and improved audio.

What about old-time rockers like Def_Leppard???? Any chance of a blu-ray disk?

I would pick up all these concerts in a heartbeat if they came out in blu-ray.

Why doesnt the studios put out more concerts anyways???? The ones mentioned by other viewers (Toto, The Boss, Jazz artists) is a good start, but way too few IMHO.

I spent the weekend listening to Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis. It is phenomenal.

I am excited about the possiblity of concert disks on Blu-ray. I hadn't given much thought to it before, but it really makes a lot of sense. If a music cd is worth $15, how much more is it worth to get an entire concert in mind-blowing high definition video, and ultra-clear lossless audio? Most of them are sub-$20 right now, so the value is clear.

IMO, Blu-ray (and HD-DVD) are going to continue to struggle with the value proposition against DVD; most of the current Blu-ray releases are $10 clearance movies on DVD. And the clearer audio doesn't even begin to matter to most people buying movies. But when you compare concert DVD to Blu-ray, you are not talking about the same demographic, generally. This group likely cares about getting the benefit of both audio AND video improvements, so the value proposition is really much stronger.

If we start seeing a flood of concert Blu-rays, I'll be in a buying frenzy. And I'll probably stop buying SACD and DVD-audio altogether, because if I can get the same audio quality AND see the video of the concert as well, for only $5 or less difference, why wouldn't I?

concerts would have to been shot in HD or on film (and then rescanned in HD) for there to be a benefit. Many concert were however shoton SD video (like Pink Floyd's pulse concert) and that's the best they'll look...

Yep, its pretty much a no-brainer, huh? I bought the NIN disc and its AMAZING. I ordered Incubus and Destiny's Child last weekend and they're on the way. I find I get a LOT more replay value out of concert discs than I do movies. I can't believe that the concert Blu-rays are less than full feature movies. It just shows how much they mark up the price of retail movies. When I bought the NIN disc on Blu-ray, it was the exact same price($16.99 at BB) as the DVD. This price is significantly lower than a new release Blu-ray movie from Fox, Buena Vista, Paramount, etc..., yet I will watch the concert disc more times than I'd watch a typical BD movie. Great Value in Blu-ray concert discs! And, the quality of both the video and audio far outpaces anything on DVD.

Clapton "One More Car, One More Rider" and Godsmack "Changes" are 2 of my favorite DVD concerts for audio experience and entertainment. Godsmack would look and sound phenomenal on BD!

Misssed this thread the first time - anybody bought Last Waltz and noticed a significant upgrade to the BD? I own it on the newly restored DVD, DVD-Audio hi-rez sound mix, and the 4cd box set... I figure I'll inevitably buy it on BD, but it'd be interesting to hear from real people that are real fans whether or not they think it's much of an improvement over the SD ver (sound wise, to start with, then PQ).

Cheers.

P/Q isn't the best - given the source.
You can see Marty S.(the de-rect-toire) in his formative years.

The audio brings tears to eyes of some folks that appreciate the performers.
Like moi.
This was the first Blu-ray disc I bought.

P.S.
A few clips from the concert to whet your appetites.
These video clips should be played LOUD !

You know this guy, I think !

Yes, it's a definite audio improvement if you're a connoisseur of such things.

For instance, this is an easy example to appreciate the difference in the discs, even if some cannot readily appreciate the increased clarity in the vocals or musical instruments..
I've listened to the DVD and the Blu-ray disc (with the PCM 5.1 soundtrack enabled) on the same sound system.

Remember the song sung by The Band and The Staples Singers..The Weight.
It was actually not recorded in San Fran during the concert but at MGM in Culver City.

At the end of the song, one of the Staples Singers says beautiful.
With the SD it sounds muffled and difficult to hear.
On the Blu-ray version with PCM enabled, it is crystal clear.

You can extrapolate that example to the sound for the remainder of the Blu-ray disc.
The P/Q is also an upgrade but, still very grainy as this is a source issue.

After being blown away by the picture and sound quality of the NIN Blu-Ray disc, I'm also hoping we see many more concerts released in BD.

The one concert I'd love to see re-released in BD format is the U2 Vertigo Tour in Chicago from 2005. I bought the U2 Chicago dvd when it came out, but I'm a huge U2 fan so I'd definitely buy it again in BD format. HDNet aired a shortened HD version of the Chicago concert last year, so it was definitely shot in hi-def. There is a U2 in Buenos Aires concert film coming out in theaters and IMAX later this year, shot in Real3D format, but they've already come out and said it won't be released on standard or high-def disc as they wish to keep the movie in 3D format and current home HDTV's won't support it. I already have a dvd of that Buenos Aires show as it was aired live on Argentina cable tv commercial-free. Knocks the socks off the Chicago DVD, but I doubt the Buenos Aires show will be released in BD.

Chris Botti..

If you've never heard his sound, he opened the Vic's Secret Holiday Show the year before last (which also featured Seal), so give this a listenHeck, if you don't like his sound at least you can enjoy the visuals on this clip.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoshsvDcAOo

Amazon, and I guess all your favorite online sellers are taking pre-orders.

I heard the Chris Botti CD is a first time 24 bit/96 audio!. It think it is coming out on Tuesday the 29 of May.

I bought and listened to the Destiny's Child disk with my wife last night. This disk sounded so good, I just kept turning the volume up. I've never played a disk of any kind this loud. The sound was so natural and unstressed. Anyway, anyone have an idea where I can find other quality Blu-ray concert discs since my Best Buy only carries the DC disc?

David Gilmour - Remember That Night will come on both HD-DVD and BD in September which is the full document from the shows at Royal Albert Hall and the final song will be Comfortably Numb and his famous guitar solo.

However i wish the Pink Floyd Pulse concert will be on HD format soon as well

Damn, where did you hear this? This is from the shows they recorded from his recent tour right? Link please.

And about Pulse, it will never happen. It was shot on video, so SD is the best it is ever gonna be. Lossless audio would be an improvement though, and for that I would easily double dip.

Pulse was shot on standard def 480i video, 4x3. Won't ever be in HD.

Oh God, I can't wait for this. Thanks for letting me know the concert scene in high def is not about to absolutely suck (other than the Botti disc, everything has been either bland-looking or nonexistant).

Davids solo album in Sept. will be on both HD formats.

I have talked to the author and he confirmed it

There are some info at www.davidgilmour.com where you can also download a 5 minutes preview from the new disc coming out.

excellent! Stellar concert. Would be nice if they re-edited the show back to the correct running order unlike the DVD which was the "show" for HBO and then a 2nd BONUS dvd of the rest, also out of sequence...


do you have a link to the info...?

I had to order "Pat Metheny Group - The Way Up Concert" on BR, I'll give feedback on this title and the new Botti disc when I see them.

I have the Pat Metheny Group on HD-DVD and it's definitely worth picking up if you like their music. The transfer looks great and the audio(despite not being lossless) is terrific. I'm assuming the Blu-ray is identical.

Now that I've had a chance to see this disc, I have to say I'm pleased with it. The PQ is good (4/5?) and the DTS HD sound track is excellent. Certainly a worthwhile buy for those who like the Group's music.





Now I just wish there were more music titles on BR!!!

BTW,

Any other recommendations for BR music discs?
