The Bad: The packaging is weak because the discs keep sliding out.

With that out of the way this CD/DVD package is a miracle of great mixing and whatever post production fixes they did. I saw them twice on the '07-'08 tours and own bootlegs of them playing in various countries on this tour. This package sounds better than anything I ever saw live or heard in a bootleg format. They also play their set list better on this DVD package than they ever did from what I heard. It was recorded live in Buenos Aires over two days so the editors had some brilliant performances to choose from.

This piece of product is everything a TRUE Police fan would want them to sound like. They're not arrogant, ambitious and faux punk-rock-reggae guys hungry to make it anymore. They're mature, famous, top-notch musicians, playing excellent songs.

The overall sounds, guitar tones, bass, drum sounds and mixing is top of the food chain. The video coverage and shot composition is superb. Purists who still think it's 1983 may not dig all the song modifications such as the lowered keys, modulations and new-fangled textures, but they can bite me. Sting isn't 27 anymore and he sings those old songs with the honesty of a guy in his 50's the way he should.

Summers got raked over the coals on guitar forums for playing too much outside stuff during his solos on this tour. It was like he forgot what a pentatonic scale was. He was also hitting a lot of clams (bad notes) and sounded under rehearsed. In this package he brings it all together and wails with precision, great ideas and wild abandon. His patented shimmering chord textures are ungodly. Whoever helped him design his pedal board needs to get The Nobel Prize.

Format: DVD
As a fan of The Police and Sting's solo career, I couldn't pass this one up because I didn't get to see the tour. I broke out the CD's first and listened to them while driving around. Didn't know what to expect, but I quickly progressed from "Hey, they sound pretty good" to "Oh My God! They sound #$@@ing GREAT!" All of the classics sound awesome, and when they want to play the songs traditionally, they sound better than ever.

But what I liked the best was when they changed it up a bit. My favorite song in the package is "Voices Inside My Head/When The World Is Running Down." They start out with this light jazz/funk groove and the song sounds completely fresh and then they bust right into the normal arrangement of When The World...and it sounds as good you remember it, if not better.

I saw Bono a couple of times last go round and I think he's losing a step vocally, at least when he's not hiding in a studio. Sting, on the other hand, sounded perfect and his solo years have given him an expressiveness that adds to their songs.

Anyway, I watched the concert after I knew all the songs and it's even better when you're watching them. Andy looks a little punchy, but he sounds great. Otherwise, they look like they own the stage together. The documentary is also well worth watching.

If you've ever bought a Police album, you need this.

Let me first say that this review is for the blue-ray only. The package came with 2 cds that I have not listened to and probably never will. Anyway, the band's performance is first rate. They all played with enthusiasm and there were no slackers! There's big sound coming from such a little band. And that sound is fantastic! The Dolby TrueHD recording is flawless. The mix is just as good. I find most 5.1 live recordings to be unlistenable, usually because the producer thought it would be cool to actually put instruments behind you. This mix is perfect. The show comes at you CLEARLY from up front and the surrounds have just the right amount of ambient sound (audience and reflected music) to put you in the crowd. I'm really not a big Police fan, but they played and sounded so good that I enjoyed all the songs, even the ones I don't particularly care for (do do do, da da da, etc). Don't let the "compression conspiracy fanatics" scare you off. This is a LIVE show that sounds like a well recorded LIVE show. If your equiptment handles the new audio codecs and you even like just a few of their songs, buy this!
PS Buy-the-way the camera work is also excellent. Not alot of incessant jumping around with inappropriate close-ups. Enjoy!

Format: DVD
Many people have commented on how generally great this DVD is, and I agree. I wanted to write this to specifically say how awesome I thought the drums were. Stewart Copeland was always one of my favorite drummers. His unique style of rock/jazz/reggae playing helped define the Police's sound, a degree of influence most drummers don't have on their band. His beats and fills were always interesting. Based on this album, I think he has only gotten better, and it is so great to get to listen and watch him play on a modern, state of the art concert film. It isn't mentioned on the packaging or any reviews I've seen, but there is a drums only angle choice on 2 songs. Cool! If you a drummer and you are reading this, just buy it! (I wish I hadn't waited 2 years.)
