Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. On Nov 24th 1996 over 120,000 Crowded House fans from all over the world gathered outside Sydney Opera House for the band's farewell concert, a benefit for Sydney Children's Hospital. 10 years on this legendary final show is available on double DVD, double DVD with Special Packaging and double CD for the first time. The double DVD includes the complete concert with optional new audio commentary by Crowded House's Neil Finn and Nick Seymour. Originally released on VHS in 1997, the DVD version of the concert has been re-edited, re-graded and has digitally re-mastered sound, and also includes five bonus tracks that were left off the VHS release. The 2nd disc features three documentaries, including the brand new 'Looking Back' documentary with a new interview with Neil and Nick, plus a photo gallery and a complete discography. EMI. 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars SENSATIONAL December 15, 2006
By Mark
Format:DVD
A perfect band,a perfect night,a perfect city. This is a visual and audio delight. The quality is top notch. Being the bands last show adds tremendous emotion to the event. These are absolutely fantastic songs played on the forecourt of the beautiful Sydney Opera House. It is just amazing to witness how good this band actually was. I had no idea until I saw this show.

Reflecting back on this show does evoke a sadness that the drummer Paul Hester is no longer with us. He was a true character and it comes through completely on this DVD. Its strange how we often dont realise/appreciate how special someone is until they are gone.

This show is a must for anyone who wants to hear brilliantly crafted songs. The spectacle of the Sydney Opera House and surrounds also makes this a show all Australians and KIWIs alike should be proud of.

I cannot imagine anyone being dissapointed in owning this DVD set.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Live Recordings Ever! April 21, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Recorded in 1996 at the Sydney Opera House plaza, "Crowded House" plays their farewell concert to an appreciative crowd of over 120,000. The 24-song set contains amazingly pure and tight sound with Neil Finn's voice at its best. There are no stand-out cuts, as the band gives it best performance to date on every track. It is flawless. The comments from the band to the audience between songs makes this one of the most personable concerts ever recorded. Slight variations on some songs and an accent here and there make the fans sing along throughout. The closing song, "Don't Dream its Over" is as emotional as ever, with shots of the crowd signing along and the band emoting, realizing this really is their last song together. It's one of the best concerts of the last two decades.

The extras include an optional commentary by the band in subtitles. The second disc has a 20-minute documentary about the enormous planning it took to stage this event, mostly narrated by the band's manager. Also included are a few featurettes, a photo gallery and the full "Crowded House" discography. This is one of those collectable packages that you'll never tire of.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Years on and More To Come!!! January 21, 2007
By Vinzo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As fans know, Crowded House was a tremendous live band. Each show I saw was always unique and great fun. The DVD version of the last CH concert only confirms the memories. What a great way to end (and kick start) a great band. The Farewell show is amazing for its song selection, so many great CH classics, the adoring crowd and most of all, to celebrate the talents of the band. The concert is filmed with no gimmicks. Just the band playing and the usual fun interplay between songs, obviously a little more somber on this occasion. Listening to the 5.1 sound is terrific: you get the full, clear sound of the instruments and to appreciate the wonderful vocal harmonies and counter-play of their voices. The full sound of the band, Neil's guitar, Paul Hester's talent as a drummer, Nick Seymour's ever bouncing bass and Mark Hart's multi instruments, never sounded better. They are tight and sound great. Tim Finn also appears on great versions of "Weather with You" and "It's Only Natural". Disc One is the full show, in all of its glory. Disc Two has three documentary/ newscasts about the show, which are not to be missed. There are also two unreleased versions of "Instinct" and Paul Hester penned "Italian Plastic".

As sad an occasion as this last show (for the moment) was, as Neil says in one of the interviews on Disc Two, it was a celebration of a great band. Now, with all of the rumors of the reunion, new album and tour, get ready world, for the rebirth. Farewell to the World will stand as a testament to the greatness of CH, Neil Finn's brilliant songs and the collective talents of the band. Paul surely will be missed and always remembered yet it appears that the time is ripe for more. While we gear up for what is upcoming, get this one now. This is one of the greatest concert DVDs and extras that you will find.

Seller didn't make it obvious the DVD was in PAL format rather than NTSC. Therefore, if you're an American there's a good chance you won't be able to view it in your DVD player. Read more

PAL vs NTSC: Irrelevant?
Yes, it does matter. NTSC DVD players, despite what Sam Tyler wrote, do NOT usually play PAL discs. It is necessary to have extra hardware to display the signal on an NTSC television.

Many PAL DVD players will happily play NTSC discs, provided there is no region encoding issue, which may be... Read More

Is this really PAL?
I'm pretty sure this one on ebay is ntsc if you're still looking. The copy I have is in letterbox and is NTSC as well. I would email the seller just to verify before I bid though. I think the video has been pulled and may be released on bluray soon.... Read More

What is unique in the deluxe package?
The standard edition is just your typical plastic "snap shut" DVD case, while the deluxe edition is a fold-open (like TV shows on DVD tend to come in) with an outer cardboard slipcase.
