    These two chicks haven't got a tired bone in either one of their bodies. They are as fresh as day one. The cinematography is first rate and the audio track is one of the best live show recordings I have ever heard.
    If you haven't ever seen Heart in concert, know these things. There is not now or has ever been one hint that these ladies ever tried to play catch up with their male counterparts in rock and roll. These women are rock and rock and they wrote the rock performers guide book. Nancy Wilson is a classic rock performer who looks like she is having as good a time on stage as she did the first time she played on a stage. Ann wilson has one of the most dynamic voices I've ever heard and has lost nothing over the years. Truly a great audio/video experience.

    Very nice write up Igo. Heart Alive in Seattle is one of my favorite DVD's too. I was actually at that concert in Seattle when it was being taped. I was sitting in the balcony. :D

    I only have the DVD in SD format. I would love to pick it up on BD. Even the SD DVD's audio quality is pretty good.. plus the picture looks good too. I am so happy they decided to release Alive in Seattle on Blu Ray. I'll pick it up if I can find it.

    You are right about Ann and Nancy Wilson. Truly they are in an elite group of female women who can really rock it out. They have sometimes been called the female version of Led Zeppelin. ;)

    I also want to pick up the Heart - Dreamboat Annie Live DVD recorded in 2007. :)

    They (Heart) often pays tribute to Led Zep in their concerts. Certainly on LIve in Seattle, they play some of their tunes. Even 30 yrs after their main success, it's clear that Ann and Nancy Wilson can still wow a crowd. How about when she sings the song Alone on the DVD, doesn't she blast that out? that's the song that makes the hair on my neck stand up... I mean she gives it her all. What a voice.

    I don't gamble. That's a good thing if you live in this town but the one thing I do love about living here is 24 hours a day of something to do. It's funny but all entertainers come here sooner or later. I watched the Heart video and thought, "I wonder if they are on tour " and"will they be in town this year"? I logged on to their web site and they are here in 3 weeks. Tiny venue and I got great seats. What's not so funny is I paid $103 for the ticket. I have 1978 ticket in a frame with dozens of other old concert tickets that are part of the audio motif that surrounds my stereo. It's Heart Live at Tarrant County Convenetion Center with a 17 peice orchestra and they were doing a nationwide radio simocast. The ticket cost $9.50.

    Chris Botti Live with Orchesta and Special Guests is an amazing blu-ray concert. It is one of my favorites, even it you don't like jazz it has something most people can appreciate. It is very articulate and precise and it has some extraordinary musicians.

    Add Jethro Tull Live at Montreux 2003 to the list! Have it playing now. Someone took some care with the DTS Master HD soundtrack. Best soundstaging on a multi-channel concert DVD that I have heard.

    I really wish KID ROCK would put out a live DVD/BLU RAY. His shows are one of the best mixed shows of music i have ever seen,everything from blues,soul,rock,metal,rap rock,and country all rolled into one.and watching his band play live is something to see.the sax player he has in his band is fantastic.the female drummer (Stef) kicks ass.i know most people think "KID ROCK WTF" the guy puts on one hell of a show.

    "Jeff Beck performing this week...live at Ronnie Scotts" is my 1st venture into BR, and have to say the SQ is good- but not polished. By that I mean, between the video, and the audio, you actually feel as though your in the nightclub, witnessing the performance live.
    The other thing I noticed, was that the band didn't seem to be performing, but rather just jamming. Made me nostalic for my days ion H.S., when we'd walk around Boston, Cambridge, and see these street performers, just plug in anywhere, and start playing.
    Anybody who has been to Faneuil Hall/ Govt. center on a Saturday night can relate.

    Things of note: With bonus footage, it's 191 minutes long(3 HOURS), and you get 2 songs with Beck & Clapton playing together!

    As for PQ, I have a 32" lcd @ 720p, so I can't testify to that, but, I'm sure it's fine?

    This gotta be the best BD concert I've seen. The sound resolution is excellent. You can easily differentiate the instruments, mid-bass is plentiful, plucking of strings, horn sections, etc. etc.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Pretty awesome. I saw that tour (With Teeth) 5 times. Once on the first leg, twice on second and third leg each. The Disc is a very good representation however I prefer the 2ch mix to the 5.1.

    I have seen this on Palladia and thought it was amazing. Imogen Heap was a real treat too. I have a huge crush on that little bass player chick. Smokin. :)

    That's how I feel about Dave mathewes. I can't stand his music when he has a band behind him, but when he does the acoustic stuff with tim reynolds he is one of my favorites.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions - I added several to my Netflix list. A couple I have seen:
    - The Who at Isle Wright - very good. Can't believe a human can play drums like that - amazing.
    - Earth, Wind and Fire / Chicago - Musically, it was awesome - especially when both groups were on stage at the same time doing a song. Vocally, I thought Chicago would have been much better if they had a voice (like Peter Cetera) that was as good as the rest of the band.

    Wife and I just watched "This is It' by Michael Jackson. Technically, it's not a full "concert" video since it is rehearsal footage. Sound of the band was amazing. But to me, his vocals sounded a bit weak. I'm not a MJ fan, but after watching the blu-ray, this would have been a spectacular concert.

    At the risk of redundant posts....Eric Clapton and Stevie Winwood at the Madison Sq Garden....the magic those guys pulled off left me in tears - Clapton just makes the guitar a natural extension of what he is feeling. And I never knew Winwood could jam on guitar!

    I don't know how you don't enjoy the band. They're all quite the musicians. Their studio albums have no energy, but their live releases are generally very well recorded and gives me goosebumps. The acoustic sessions are a completely different feel though so I guess I could see how you like one and not the other, I just don't agree :D

    The DM + TR live at Radio City has much better sound quality on BD than on CD. I have to watch the BD at least once a month.

    I want to hear The Police before I spend the money on it, but I bet its pretty solid. Seal also has a Soundstage BD out and I've heard it was (hour long) short but very well done.
