No frills here. Only a simple cd-sized cardboard cover (no booklet), approx. 2GB of data, no menu, no warning screens (it immediately starts playing quickly, and loops back when it's done), no chapter stops (!), and only one audio track choice - 2 channel PCM stereo @ 48KHz. I'm not sure why, but the color has been drained or turned down so much it almost appears to be black & white at times, especially in the background.

The mixers screwed up with the backup vocals - they are barely heard in parts, especially near the beginning. At least Lou doesn't believe in post-production editing, so what you hear is what you heard at Lollapalooza (minus surround sound and minus most of the crowd during the songs). I was at this show, and I swear I think it was me that he pointed to at 11:08 because I shouted "Looouuu!" as loud as I could while standing on tip-toes and pointing at him as high as I could for about 10 seconds right as he was looking my way and pointed. :D I could be wrong though, because I was maybe 40 rows back and it was a good sized crowd. Somehow, I am enjoying watching this DVD more than seeing him there live, because I can see what's going on better.

I really enjoyed hearing Senselessly Cruel live (if only the backup vocals were properly mixed it could have been even better). Dirty Blvd, Mad, and Paranoia Key of E are other highlights. I think only Sweet Jane and Waves of Fear left me wanting more in terms of energy and sound. If you're a Lou Reed fan like me, you know you're going to buy this so just do it already. I'm sure you'll enjoy it all the same.

0:22 - Sweet Jane
5:43 - Senselessly Cruel
11:00 - Dirty Blvd.

Verified Purchase
Let me preface this by saying that, lo & behold, I have actually viewed the dvd. Friends, let me say that it doesn't get any better than this. Lou Reed is a living legend, and this becomes very clear in those opening chords of Sweet Jane. Great writer, here playing a great set of incomparable songs. Yes, this man has the fire. I urge everyone interested in Rock 'n' Roll to purchase this show and watch in, dare I say it, awe. There's nobody like Lou, and here he is with a tight band, including some old friends, and a set-list that just won't quit. This is what Rock music looks & sounds like; this is the real deal. Guess I'll go watch it again. Lou: long may he reign.

I'm not sure why Lou Reed's office choose this show to put out on DVD instead of many other shows he have done between 2005 and 2011 (except Berlin shows who already have a tremendous BD/DVD edition)
I just loved some shows from the mini european 2006 tour, or the 2008 USA tour were very strong. Even the last "power rock tour" from July 2011 was unbelievable.
In 2009 Lou choose to play his album "Metal Music Machine" on stage with new young musicians like Sarth Calhoun (on fingerboard continuum here) and Ulrich Krieger, a fantastic saxophonist (here too). And he also made shows with his beloved wife (Laurie Anderson) called Yellow ponies and other stories, if i remember correctly.
I didn't liked both of them for a lot of reason i won't explain here but pretty obvious for a lot of Lou's fan.
So this show is the ONLY moment of the year where Lou plays his songs with his musicians, my expectations were high and some of them were fullfilled.
On the good side there is no menu or waiting, the show start,the show end and the show start again !
Filmed on a strange but beautifull washed colour,almost black & white.
Rob Wasserman is on the bass and he do a terrific job, all along the show you can hear his powerfull and omnipresent instrument. The combination with Tony "Thunder" Smith drumming is really good, as always (Fernando is not there anymore)
In addition you hear the "frantic" sax by Ulrich Krieger who fit well with Lou's songs, but maybe too high in the mix.
The songs have an interesting "not polished, raw side" but i wonder if more rehearsals wouldn't be better to put these songs at higher levels like Lou can do when he really wants.
