5.0 out of 5 stars Solid performance from the greatest of bands ... January 22, 2002
Format:DVD
Although I am not a 'wild nut' type of Stones fan I saw this concert at the Orange Bowl, in Miami, and Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, et. al. are THE consumate professional showmen giving the audience more than their money's worth performance. Even though Mick may be getting a little long in the tooth for rock concerts (aren't we all) and rumours have it that Keith Richards is really dead, you could see and feel that this band loves performing, and would put together a 5 hour show if they could.
The band shows up on time, (something very unusual now a days for rock star wanna be's) and rocks your socks from beginning to end, non-stop.
The DVD brought back memories of that performace and did not fall short in any respects. The video is crystal clear, sound is exact and sharp, and the editing absolutely fabulous. The director seemed to know where one would be looking during the concert and it made me feel as if I was back there again.... some of the editors of concert videos that I have seen had no clue as to where and when to focus attention during the concert .....
Although I would give 'Voodoo Lounge' concert DVD a slight edge, (I mean a very very slight edge) over Babylon, trust me, this is a must have DVD that will, like Voodoo, go out of print and you'll be buying the DVD for 50.00 bucks just to have it in your collection......

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert....Average DVD May 21, 2001
By Maekju
Format:DVD
The Stones put on a great show and it's captured beautifully on video but this DVD is lacking in a few things that would have really made it special. First of all, why no DTS sound? If you're not sure what this can add to a concert video, watch the DTS version of The Eagles "When Hell Freezes Over" and compare it with this or another non-DTS DVD (provided your player supports DTS).
The other minor complaint is there are no bonus features (ie. interviews, backstage scenes, music videos, etc) that would have added greatly to the live performance. It's as though the makers of this DVD did not realize the potential of the format they were using. A few little additions would have made this one of the all-time greats. I'd still recommend this DVD to any Stones fan because it's wonderful to see Mick, Keith and the boys in this format and the concert itself is a fantastic performance. I just hope the next time they release a DVD, it has more bells and whistles.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a MUST HAVE if you like the Rolling Stones. This DVD has excellent sound quality and visual quality. This is the best Rolling Stones DVD on the market. This covers 40 years of hits with today's dvd technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! February 24, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here you'll find Mick, Keith and the boys together with some "cool friends" doing what they do best. ROCK & ROLL!

They have the lovely & talented Lisa Fischer on backup vocals. She really used her "assets talents," all of them. Her voice hits all of those amazing notes that few singers will ever hope aproach.

The "really cool" Joshua Redmond joins in with his saxophone.

Lets not forget the inovative theatrics that we've come to expect from the Stones. The never disapoint me in that area. In this film they do actually cross "a bridge" to Babylon.

If you love the Stones and you love seeing them live or wish you could, this is a great way to see them!

All right, I admit it. I am a huge fan, (can't fool you) since the begining. I've spent more than I'll admit this year on concert Tickets, T-Shirts and DVD/CDs. Not to mention plane tickets!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far more than a nostalgia act October 9, 2001
Format:DVD
The Rolling Stones, thirty years after their prime, are still the best live act in the world, bar none. This concert, which was originally telecast as a pay-per-view concert in December 1997, is indisputable proof. They still have their edge, they still give it everything they've got in live performance, and their sell-out concerts are proof of it. All music acts should look at this concert to see how hard work, huge talent, and impeccable professionalism is done. The Rolling Stones are the masters of live performance.
I spent the twenty dollars it cost for the pay-per-view telecast and even taped it over the air. I have seen it at least 60 times and still love it. What struck me is, despite his age, Mick Jagger still has tremendous energy to play so well in front of an audience (and this concert was late in the evening, finishing after midnight). It takes a great deal of energy to be able to go back and forth on a stage about the size of a football field and under those hot lights. Not only that but he looked the best he ever looked in his life. About 25 pounds heavier than in his youth, Jagger was filled out, and, for being a member of a band not known for pulchritude, actually looked almost attractive. The rest of the band was in fine form, too, and contrary to some reviews, Keith Richards does not looked bored here. He was very much animated and seemed to enjoy himself.
The concert consists of a mix of both old hits and more recent songs, with three of the original concert tunes cut out of the DVD version ("Corinna," with Taj Mahal--not a high point of the show; one of Keith Richards' songs; and "The Last Time," which should probably be the last time for this tune as Jagger and company can no longer hit the notes).

Differs slightly from what was shown on VH1 TV in the late 90's, but still worth purchasing for a Stones fan. Has a nice rendition of Gimme Shelter.
