4.0 out of 5 stars An unusual and unexpected concert March 18, 2006
Format:DVD
Poison's new DVD "Seven Days Live," (2006) from the band's performance at London's Hammersmith Apollo is a very unusual and unexpected concert that the band would choose to release. One might expect Poison to release a DVD from a more recent tour (which is more or less a nostalgia act) or release a DVD from the 1990 "Flesh and Blood" tour, when the band was at its commercial peak. But a show from 1993 is totally surprising for a few reasons.

First, this lineup of Poison features guitarist Ritchie Kotzen, stepping in for C.C. Deville, who left Poison from 1991 to 1996. Kotzen made only one album with Poison, 1993's mature and bluesy "Native Tongue," before being fired for shagging drummer Rikki Rocket's fiancé. It seems odd to release a DVD with Kotzen, considering that his tenure in the band was so short lived and that the classic lineup of Poison, with C.C., is hands down the definitive version of the band.

Another reason a show from '93 is an unusual choice is that the set list relies heavily from the band's "Native Tongue" (1993) album. Although "Native Tongue" is a strong and well-written album, it was a relative failure. "Native Tongue" was the band's first album that failed to go platinum, winding up in the dreaded cut-out bin, sitting next to Vince Neil's "Exposed," (1993) Motley Crue's 1994 self-titled album, and David Lee Roth's "A Little Ain't Enough" (1991) by the end of 1994. "Native Tongue" is now out-of-print and is only available used or as a cut-out. It seems odd to release a DVD from a concert showcasing an album that was virtually ignored upon its release and is now forgotten.

All this taken into consideration, a show from 1993 is either desirable or undesirable, depending on what you're looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poison doing what they do best! June 5, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I actually own the original video release of this concert and having been a fan since I was 7 years old(and too young to go to their Perth concert a year later) this is the closest I will most likely ever get to a live experience of Poison. And from other vision I have seen over the years, while yes re-releasing this particular concert seems an odd choice given the history, I think it completely captures the band as performers. I love the selection of songs in this concert first & foremost because they cover so much material from Native Tongue, my far & away favourite album. While I love all their earlier party anthems, I think going that bit deeper with Native Tongue really gave them a new depth which is reflected in this concert. And it seems that the influence is not entirely with Richie Kotzen, because anyone who has listened to Bret Michaels solo effort "Songs of Life" will hear that same mature and amazing soulfulness coming through! Three cheers for re-releasing this concert! My vid is nearly warn out from constant watching!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun February 14, 2006
Format:DVD
I bought this on video back in the day when I was living in the UK. This concert was in support of the Native Tongue album (very underated) and was filmed in London. It's a small venue but Poison were never very big in the UK and frankly their popularity was waning when this came out. It's a great show with Richie Kotzen doing a fine job as lead guitarist and getting in to the groove. Highlights are actually one of the "new" songs "Until You Suffer Some" and a rip-roaring "Fallen Angel" and "Ride The Wind". It's a great concert video and if you're a Poison junkie a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poison at Their Musical Apex August 2, 2006
By KingV
Format:DVD
First let me say I have seen the original lineup live several times with the latest being 7/30/06 and these guys always put on a great show.

That being said, I would have loved to have got the chance to see a show during the short lived Richie Kotzen era. I am a fan of Kotzen's Shrapnel work and think Native Tongue is one of Poison's best albums.

Though CC's solos fit the "classic" material better, it was so refreshing and entertaining to see Kotzen rip it up in the songs. The sweep picking on "Look What the Cat Dragged In" was KILLER! All of the Native Tongue material is played to perfection. After Kotzen finished his concert solo I thought, "Man that was short". It was hilarious to hear Bret's comedic rant when returning to the stage concerning the length of the solo.

The audio and video are OK, considering this was filmed in the early 90's. This is extremely entertaining and it's awesome to have the chance to see a show from this era. If you prefer the original lineup, buy a ticket and get out and see them on their 20th Anniversary tour. Highly recommend both the DVD and the current tour!
