I would like to point out that the production of this video is excellent. The video portion gives you two angles, but that is not what sells me on this DVD, it's the quality, just great! The audio portion is well done also. It gives you the feeling of being in the front row. Put this DVD to a big screen tv and a good sound system, and you are there!
I just attended an Alice Cooper concert in Cincinnati last night. It was pretty much the same as what is on the Brutally Live DVD with a few exceptions. A few of his newer songs off of the Dragontown disc had been added in place of some others.
I must say that I think that the Brutally Live DVD is better than the live show I saw. Don't get me wrong, the man and his band put on a hell of a performance, but the sound in the theater was not as good as what I get from the DVD.
In summary, if you get a chance to see Alice live, do it by all means. Then buy this DVD to enjoy when you can't see him live. In either case it's entertainment money well spent.
Great production values with an alternate angle for some songs and a bonus video for "Gimme".
Recorded July 2000 in London (105 min)

If you care anything about Alice Cooper, you need this DVD.
Thanks Coop, you continue to rule!!!
There are quite a variety of new and old songs on this disc and the band is in rare form! The musicians are incredibly talented, have great stage presence, and are having a blast nailing every song... as good or better than the studio recordings. Besides the music we are treated to a visual feast of colorful characters, grotesque half monster/baby creature, swords, whips, straight jacket, and of course the guillotine execution. Alice's voice cracks a little in places but he is still a great showman who always interacts with the audience. For instance, when he points out those wearing Manson, Ozzy and Kiss t-shirts in the audience and refers to them as "all of my disobedient children". Or when a lucky young boys face beams when Alice gives him his cane.
The audio options are DD 5.0, DTS 5.0 and stereo. All mixes are excellent and the absence of the subwoofer is not an issue. Not much for bonus material - a video of "Gimme" and some songs give you the option of multiple angles. When I purchased this it did not come with the DVD/CD package. It would be worth the extra cash to get that version.
That was fine , I turned most of the classmates onto the record anyway. Curiosity always takes over a young mind and half the class wanted to know what it was all about. I still remember it even though it was 33 years ago. I also have been listening to AC ever since.
Now about this concert dvd. This was filmed in 2000 at the Hammersmith in London and it is a treat to watch a master performer do his thing at 52 years of age , you would never know it. This show is very entertaining and all of AC's musical styles are represented well by a superb band that captures the creativity that singed many brain cells from 1970 to 1974. Alice is in command here and he looks and sounds better than ever . Imagine what it would be like if Bowie succesfully pulled off his Ziggy character in current times , that would be really cool.Read more ›
