Beware of this release. The NTSC DVD's are defective. I went through two of them, that would not play in 4 different players. They skip, freeze, and pixelate like crazy. It is especially bad switching from the first to second layer. Also, all NTSC DVD's are missing the documentary and photo gallery. Until Universal addresses these problems, avoid this product. Too bad, because the CD's sound great, well mixed and not too loud and compressed like many modern releases.

The folks at Amazon graciously sent me a replacement "Deluxe Edition" when the first DVD was missing the Bonus Features. However, the replacement DVD is also missing the Bonus Features. It seems that all the Deluxe Edition sets in NTSC format are missing the Bonus Features. Hopefully, Universal will get on this now that enough folks are getting these faulty NTSC formatted DVDs. Pity, the concert video was well done--but both my DVDs did freeze for a moment during playback. Something is most certainly not right about this DVD production.

A-Ha went to great lengths to produce a live DVD that was as good as a studio album, and this DVD just doesn't do it justice. First, the DVD does not contain the extras it's advertised as having: the documentary and photo gallery. Both are missing from the DVD. Second, the quality of the DVD is non-existent. My first DVD stopped playing half way through the concert. So I returned the item for a replacement. Bad idea! The second DVD is even worse. It doesn't even make it through the first song before the picture becomes pixilated, and then the DVD stops playing altogether. And you can't get around it by choosing another track from the menu, because none of them will play. I hear the Blue Ray disk is fantastic, so if you're considering purchasing the final concert, you may want to skip the DVD and pay for the Blue Ray disk. Too bad the manufacturer has messed the DVD up so badly. I'm giving this one star because it is A-Ha and the CDs are still good, but the quality of the DVD doesn't even deserve that.

The importcds seller on the marketplace has the correct (2nd pressing). Guaranteed.. Universal Int'l acknowledged the first batch was defective (missing DVD content).

Shame this happened to a much sought after release.

The NTSC dvd in the "Deluxe Edition" is missing the documentary and photo gallery and the disc is embarrassingly poor quality. Universal should be ashamed of themselves for doing this to the band's last concert and to fans in N. America who need a NTSC dvd. On a blu-ray player, the dvd only freezes a few times, although on a standard dvd player the picture is terrible and it is completly unplayable by the third song in. I highly recommend the blu-ray version (sold separtely) because the concert (like the band) is simply AMAZING. The only problem is to get the two cds (20 songs) vs. the 1 cd (16 songs) you must purchase the not-so "Deluxe Edition". So to have the 2 cds, you're subjected to purchasing a messed up, incomplete dvd.

I bought this Deluxe Edition from Amazon, and received a defected DVD as result. (ie. As the others mentioned,the DVD's video and audio cannot be played smoothly and also excluded the bonus content)
I contacted Amazon and they sent me a replacement. Unfortunately, I still received a defected DVD again.
As I read through those related product reviews, I found this problem only in the first pressing.It seems that the stocks were not yet cleaned.
I know Amazon was not the one to be blamed as they really provided an excellent service! I hope this issue will be fixed soon.

Besides the DVD, the CDs are excellent! But it would be perfect if more songs from the album "Foot of the Mountain" can be included in the concert!

I understand from some fans that a couple of songs were missing from this, but they did a bang on job with what you do get. Of all the concerts i've seen of them, Morten made the best effort on this one. His voice sounds really great and they all seem to be having some bitter sweet fun. Worth every penney.

I didn't know A-ha was so great live. It seems like going back 20 years in time. Really great purchase.

After all these years I finally got to see this one of a kind group that the USA really missed out on. My only regret is this was their final concert together and since have went their own way. If anyone wants to see what they missed I highly recommend you order this DVD/cd combo. The DVD is Region 2 so it will not play on the DVD player for USA which is Region I but we searched the web and found a store locally that carried a DVD player and invested $39.00 or maybe $49.00 + tax that way if we ever wanted to purchase other DVD's from Region 2 countries we would have no problem watching them.

This cd is amazing!! I'm very excited a-ha put this together for their final concert. The quality of the sound, and song choice, really feel like the listener was there! Thank you for turning me on to this final concert with a quick delivery (the compact disk) and the perfect condition. I encourage anyone who likes a show to check this out - the livelyness is enough to get anyone in moment!!!
