First of all I was waiting for a Stone Temple Pilot DVD to be released a long time ago, they are the last "grunge" band (are they really?) of our time, they survived the 2000's.
Why Scott Weiland always surprises me? I mean you could swear that his voice and performance will suck big time after all he went trough but like always he surprises me again and again:
Very nice intro, nice lights and background. They did make lots of effort on that point and results are beautiful. A big screen with waves during Creep, Circles during Plush...beautiful set up and different in EVERY single song.
Apparently Dean DeLeo added some effect on his guitar that really shines his playing. It does some amazing solos to end the songs, lots of personality in his playing and more depth than before. A guitar player will learn a thing or two.
Robert has a nice voice that you will have a chance to ear! Excellent backing, the DVD sounds very good in general.
Then Scott climbs his podium and it's on you know that's going to get crazy, he is on fire threw the whole concert. What a voice !!! He is a lot more mature then before in his voice and his performance at 44 years old don't except him to jump and bend like before and that's a good thing. My gosh what a style he has! It will inspire your dancing, I dare you not to dance above your bed during Crackerman. Make no mistake Scott might speak slowly and so on but on stage he is ELECTRIC.
If you want to see a stylish, mature and tight rock band live, buy this it will be your best purchase in a long long long time!
Technically, it's a fine disc -- with great picture and sound (at least on my system).
My main complaint is not so much with the DVD, but the set list for this particular concert. This is a usual gripe I have with bands. While all the hits are covered here, it would have been nice if gems such as Church On Tuesday, Big Bang Baby, Army Ants, Unglued or Glide had been part of this set. But, I suppose that's a no-win wish list for me and I know we all have our own preferred set lists that never become reality in a live show.
The interview with the band -- included as an extra -- is a complete joke. The questions are not very in depth, but then, the responses to the questions actually made me chuckle. I don't know if the band was stoned or tired at the time but the whole interview was like something out of This Is Spinal Tap. The questions and answers were laughable. I found myself saying "Well, duh!" to myself quite often while watching this.
If you're an STP fan, this DVD is worth having. And, since it's all we've got...it's hard to be too critical. I wish older performances from their 90's heyday were available on DVD for purchase.
Overall, I recommend it.
If you like STP you will like this.

Solid concert and good production. The interview at the end is pretty cool. Overall, they don't blow me away with a five star performance, but all the STP classics are very strong... Read morePublished 1 month ago by W. Law
