For sure, The Eagles concert is hard to beat. I have about 150 BD concerts, and Jethro Tull in Montreux 2003 is still a favourite

Do you have a list of the concert blu-ray? It's tough to navigate what is available easily, and what is no longer easily available (like the Concert for Diana blu-ray).

Or a list to some resource for what concert blu-rays exist would be ideal!

Thanks.

Good question. If you go to blu ray.com, select any movie and a list will pop up on the left. Select "by genre" and choose "music". There is a list of concert and BD music, sort by release date or however you want. Some others may chime in with listings available elsewhere. If you click on my signature here, it will take you to my page on blu ray.com and you can see my list of BD music and concerts under "collection". If I have any titles you might be interested in, I'd be glad to answer any questions you might have as best I can

Fans of The Eagles who don't already own the documentary--Showtime is re-airing it tonight (and a few more times this week). Fantastic doc.

I love watching Metallica thru the Never, I see if you get the German version its in Atoms. And love Rammsteins Live In America. I have Porcupine Trees anesthetize, I like it but I think misses that big sound of the others. I do also enjoy both Katatonia live at union chapel Blu-ray and Anathema Universal Blu-ray. Roger Waters The Wall is amazing, just wish you could watch the concert only

Lee Ritenour Overtime - Incredible sound, great band. The only drawback is that sprinkled through the concert there are short clips of talking head interviews where the sound level is ungodly loud compared to the rest of the program.

The Eagles Farewell Tour I and David Gilmour Remember That Night are two very high on my list.

It's too bad Steely Dan Two Against Nature didn't get the blu-ray treatment (and a 16:9 aspect ratio). Even though it's only a dvd, it does have a DTS 5.1 option which sounds fantastic. Highly recommend it.

Another good non Blu-Ray disc is the Alice In Chains Unplugged DVD.


The songs and their lyrics sung by Lanye Staley, who was by then deep into the clutches of addiction, provides the listener of this top notch performance a very powerful and emotional experience.

Just before HD took off for the home market I remember thinking "can it really look better than my Alice In Chains DVD does on my Sony Triniton?"

....and if you like this type of music, I'd also highly recommend Pat Metheny: Unity Sessions - another true reference quality disc. I guess technically it's not a "concert" (no audience) but it is live... in a studio-type setting within a small theater.

Which has the better audio quality between "Hell Freezes Over" and "Farewell Live From Melbourne"? As only a mild Eagles fan, if I buy one, which should it be?

Has "Hell Freezes Over" ever been released on Blu-ray, or is it DVD only?


Extra Credit Question: Are any of the Peter Gabriel concert Blu-Ray or DVDs worth purchasing?

-thanks

If you are a Peter Gabriel fan, all of his releases are worth buying. The Gabriel camp always pays attention to the details so PQ and especially AQ are top shelf. I recently bought the Athens and Back to Front Blu-rays and it's interesting to compare the performances. I am also a big fan of the Growing Up DVD. The AQ in DTS is fantastic and it looks great on my OPPO/Kuro combo. YMMV

I have both and IMO "Hell Freezes Over" is mixed better. With that said the Melbourne Blue Ray has a better picture and is a bit more fun to watch (Joe Walsh is a riot). I was fortunate enough to see the "Hell Freezes Over" tour when my fabulous wife to be bought me front row tickets to there concert when they were touring back then, and I have to say it was a concert I will never forget.

Another Pat Metheny live concert that has excellent PQ and AQ is The Way Up - Live. Also Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City. Both are good concerts too!

the audio is very good on both. Farewell is much better for viewing unless you like the laid back unplugged type concert. i don't think Hell Freezes Over has been released on blu-ray.

One of my favorite as well, if not for the horrible surround mix, the stereo mix is what I choose all the time now.
Pat Metheny: The Way Up Live would be my choice. I actually owned this on HD-DVD first, but my player broke, so I re-purchased it in BD as well.

I wouldn't use a concert BD at all. I'd use a BD/DVD-A/SACD with an excellent studio surround mix to show off my sound system. Steven Wilson's outstanding mix of Yes' "Fragile" comes immediately to mind, as it is likely to be familiar to the listener and they will be able to appreciate the value of the fidelity and surround mix since they at least have a memory to compare it to.

Display: Panasonic P60UT50 (Plasma)
Speakers: (4) Monitor Audio Silver 9i (Front and Surround), (1) Monitor Audio Silver 12i (Center), (4) Monitor Audio Silver 4i (Rear and Wide), (2) Aperion Audio Bravus II 8d (Subwoofers)
Receiver: Pioneer Elite SC-87 AVR (9.2)

Same here, although I wouldn't pick "Fragile" (nothing wrong with that choice, just not what I would choose). Not sure what I would use as there are a lot of great choices between blu ray audio, DVD-A and SACD.

As far as concerts go and if we are talking strictly audio (not taking PQ into the equation), my go to is still Talking Heads Stop Making Sense studio mix. Blows me away every time I listen to it! I wouldn't object to using a number of other suggestions made in this thread as well though.
