5.0 out of 5 stars Gary Moore + Rock = Let me scratch my head on this one! November 4, 2003
Gary Moore performing at the Monster's of Rock, opening for Whitesnake? What is this a joke? Gary Moore
and the word Rock in the same sentence?!$&*(@ I thought Gary sworn off rock, sworn off all his old 80's heavy
rock songs and just wanted to concentrate on the "blues". Well guess what my friends, Gary Moore has finally
awaken from his coma he slipped into around 1990, and it back fricking rocking again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And he hasn't missed a beat!!!! I just picked this up to cure my curiousity of if time has affected Gary's rock chops
and I got my answer with the first note played on Shapes of Things, Gary Moore proves again that he is still the
best rock guitarist period! My jaw hit the floor, as Gary Moore just shreds, and rips through new rock tunes, old 80's
rock classics from his solo years/Lizzy years, and some covers that just quite simply question why he had abandoned
rock music for almost 14 years.
This DVD concert is incredibly done! The sound and picture quality are first rate. Beautifully shot with multiple cameras
but not over done (ala Iron Maiden's Rock in Rio release). Gary and his band just smoke. The band was touring in support of their Scars
album released in 2002. Gary's band only consist of 2 other memeber. Cass Lewis on bass and Darrin Mahoney on drums.
That's it. No synths. No keyboards. Nothing but guitar, bass, and drums. And of course Gary's vocals.
Gary was opening for Whitesnake on this tour, and was given a 60 minute performance time to crank and he waste none
of that time. 10 songs performed including Shapes, Free's Wishing Well, Scars' Recitfy, Stand Up, and Just Can't Let You Go.

4.0 out of 5 stars We Need Moore DVD's Like This January 19, 2005
I have enjoyed the music of Gary Moore for several years, but being in the States he seldom makes his way over here. Since this was the case, I was glad to see the release of a DVD filmed at this years "Monsters Of Rock" tour. This piece was filmed as part of Gary touring for his "Scars" album. Joining him in the band is Cass Lewis on bass, and Darrin Mahoney on drums. Fans might be interested in the fact that Gary seems to have stepped back into his roots of Rock once again. He took some time off and became a blues man (and while it was done quite well), I still like to see him kicking some serious ass on the strings. He has not lost any of his skill at this medium.

This DVD is essentially a straight ahead concert from beginning to end. The only additional footage is several minutes of sound-check and some backstage interview footage. These two portions serve as the Bonus Features, making that aspect somewhat lacking. Given the scope of Gary Moore's back catalog, Sanctuary should have included a couple of videos, or perhaps even some vintage footage from other "Monsters Of Rock" festivals. Gary Moore has been a steady performer at this festival, so the footage has to be out there and this is what fans will want to see.

The DVD moves quite quickly also. I found this not only because of its 63 minute length but because the songs flow so smoothly. It was over before I knew it, so I let it run again to just listen to the songs. I am guessing the shortness of its length was because Gary was on the opening spot during this tour for Whitesnake. 63 minutes seems like a normal running time for a pre-headliner goes onstage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moore Shreds Right Before Your Eyes September 19, 2004
If you appreciate Gary Moore for what he is...arguably one of rock's best electric guitarists, you will thoroughly enjoy this dvd. Moore's playing has few peers and it shows on this release. The sound is great and so is the camera work. The version of Phil Lynott's "Don't Believe a Word" is worth the price of this dvd alone. The only reason I did not rate this at 5 stars is the length. Yes the original concert only ran a little over a hour; but for a medium that can hold 4 hours of material, some interviews, backstage footage or bonus stuff would have been nice.

Chances are if you a dedicated Gary Moore fan you already own this, if you don't just get it. For any casual or newcomer to Moore's work, you need to see him live to appreciate just how talented he really is. Add to cart now, you won't regret it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long Time Fan Dislikes This One November 24, 2004
Where to start, Well the playing is excellent but the vocals are horrible. Other than the new songs from his then current disc he forces all of the vocals on this. I was glad to see the older tunes on this release but could of done with out the harsh vocals. I was also not very happy with the length on this DVD. Oh well I'm waiting for the Gary Moore:Live at Montreux 1990 DVD I know that one will be better. Being a fan for over 25 years I can't say to the casual listener to buy this this is for hardcore fans only.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a surprise... December 3, 2003
Over 50 years old and still an amazing hardrock guitarist, who would have thought so? His melodic soloing is quite exceptional by anyone's standards, including people like Dave Gilmour and Jeff Beck. This DVD serves as an excellent showcase of his chops and will hopefully inspire a new generation of rock guitarists. As a singer and song writer, Gary Moore has never impressed me. Even though the new material from the latest studio release "Scars" does sound relatively fresh, it is not surprisingly the old Phil Lynott classic "Don't believe a word" that provides the highlight of the concert.
