5.0 out of 5 stars Petty Rocks September 16, 2003
Format:DVD
I've always thought that studio albums don't even compare with live performances. I've also always loved Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. But even I was astounded at how great "The Last DJ" sounds live. From the opening notes of the title track to Mike Campbell's solo on "Lost Children" to the final chords of "Can't Stop The Sun", Tom and the Heartbreakers sound incredible. It's almost like listening to a completely new album. And that's not all. The band goes on to play classics including "Change of Heart" and "I Need To Know", then closes with a ten-minute-long "Mary Jane's Last Dance" and a "You Wreck Me" encore.
Unfortunately, the editing is poor. In some songs the camera changes every three seconds. Some shots don't last for more than half a second. Occasionally the camera will slow down for a minute to watch Tom sing or to pan across the stage, but it doesn't happen often enough. One of the longest shots is of a woman in the audience singing along to two verses of a song. Who knows what's happening on stage. Also, the lighting on some camera shots leaves a lot to be desired. In other places, however, the colors and lighting effects are awesome. Overall, the quality of the music makes the camera problems seem minor.
The extra features are hardly worth mentioning: two TV commercials promoting "The Last DJ" album and some random outtakes of Tom making a video.
As of this time, Amazon hasn't included a track listing, so...

5.0 out of 5 stars Writing while I'm Watching October 20, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I am not sure who amazes me more, Tom Petty or every other member of this band. This concert shows why rock and roll will never die. Tom Petty, "old and bitter"? I think not. Fortunately for us, he seems to keep getting better. The sound makes this DVD - but how visual do you need to be at a Tom Petty and the HB's concert anyway!

A wonderful DVD with songs that link together a great concept story-line. Mr. Petty speaks his mind to the "Powers That Be" (Joe CEO) that are more interested in the flash in the pan artists that sell their smile (Making Joe CEO Rich) instead of quality music. The music and the lyrics are great. I found the production value to be superior. The additional CD of live music rocks as well. A great value, that I picked up for under fifteen dollars (new). Dreamville is the place to be.........

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Petty is The Man! September 22, 2003
By Annabar
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For the true Tom Petty fan, this is a must. I have not been able to see TP & the HP's in concert in years and this just made me smile. I get chills everytime I hear "Like a Diamond". Tom has stayed true to what he believes in and that has only made me even a more loyal fan. This also includes my two teenage daughters who also think you are The Man! Thanks Tom!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Petty, beguiling musical storyteller January 22, 2011
Format:DVD
I had intended to write a review, then happened to read those already printed. There is a quality that runs through all these reviews, and that is a love of GREAT rock&roll, and the love of the
uniqueness that is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Their music had me with their first album. The videos just reinforce what I intuitively knew, He is a genius, enhanced by the Heartbreakers, all genius themselves. How they found each other, and how they have all ENHANCED EACH OTHER is a great story of ROCK&ROLL.

Tom, charismatic, driven, gifted beyond belief. His is a story of a boy who was driven by passion to push ahead and make great r&r. His belief in that dream fueled a life, many lives
to reach great heights, and then continue to reach for more.

LONG MAY THEY PROSPER, AND LONG MAY THEY CREATE AND PRODUCE THEIR INCREDIBLE MUSIC. I intend to keep on loving everything I can read, watch or listen to by Tom Petty.
