Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Like most festival shows, the Toronto Rocks concert, a SARS benefit held on July 30, 2003 before a teeming crowd of 490,000, is a pretty mixed bag. For one thing, the Guess Who, Rush, AC/DC, and the Rolling Stones--the headliners--are all well past their primes. They're still kicking, of course, and fans of each will relish their sets. But no headliner save Rush exudes the freshness and spark evident in the tantalizing snippets of the performances we don't see on this single-disc DVD: Canadian acts like Blue Rodeo, the Tea Party, and Sass Jordan (with a still-riveting Jeff Healey on guitar). The Stones command more than their fair share of screen time, and some would say they've earned it. Meanwhile, we're also served three helpings of Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi's ho-hum Have Love Will Travel revue. Who steals the show? The Isley Brothers, led by founding singer Ronald and axeman Ernie, who blaze through "Who's That Lady" and their classic "Shout" with a band of lock-tight musicians and dancers.

The DVD includes the kind of full-size color booklet every concert disc should come with, a choice of Dolby Digital 5.1 surround and uncompressed PCM stereo sound (both great), and a dose of "bonus" backstage ballyhoo. A unique extra is the director's broadcast call of the camera shots for AC/DC's "Thunderstruck," revealing the frantic, real-time demands of a live shoot. --Michael Mikesell

Product Description

On July 30, 2003, close to a half a million people gathered in Toronto for one of the most spectacular concerts of all time in fact, the largest ticketed single-day event in history. The Rolling Stones headlined the show, accompanied by 13 other acts, including AC/DC, Rush, the Guess Who, and Justin Timberlake. Now, this amazing day has been captured on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good show, but Timberlake embarrasses himself August 6, 2004
Format:DVD
.....as one would expect. This DVD is a much pared-down version of an all-day concert event. The meat of the show was Rush, AC/DC, The Guess Who, and the Rolling Stones. How Justin Timberlake got invited to this is anybody's guess. I don't know who thought that a rock and roll crowd would be willing to sit still and behave during a boy-band alum's teeny-bopper Pop set. Just a bad decision. A real buzzkill in that kind of music line-up. Imagine watching Rush and The Guess Who perform, then, while frothing at the mouth waiting for AC/DC and the Stones to perform, you have to sit through a set by an N*SYNC member. Whose lame idea of musical continuity was that?? Audience members were booing and pelting Timberlake with water bottles. To make matters worse, Timberlake joined the Stones onstage during "Miss You". And he looked absolutely ridiculous. Mick is up there gyrating as usual, and Timberlake is trying his best to look cool, but he looks like someone doing a lame attempt at dancing like a hip-hop artist.

I'm sorry, but if bubble-gum Pop and Rock and Roll don't belong in the same concert line-up, the CERTAINLY don't belong on the same stage at the SAME TIME!

My favorite part of the DVD was the camera work during Rush's brief set. I've been watching the "Rush in Rio" DVD quite a bit lately, and loving every second of it. But for some reason the camera work on Rush in this DVD is more approachable and accessible. You feel like you are there with them. That probably has something to do with the light - it is broad daylight during Rush's set. You'll have to see it to see what I mean. And the camera angles on drummer Neil Peart (who looks simply delighted when he meets Charlie Watts - as shown in the documentary footage) are more inviting and satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for any AC/DC or Stones Fan. March 20, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great DVD that should be on a priority list for all Stones and AC/DC fans.

The great thing about this is the pure rawness of The Rolling Stones performance. I'll explain. I feel for too long the Stones on stage have been so polished and professional that its lost a little of the excitement. The feeling that I got from this is that they plugged in and let it kick. When Justin Timberlake performs "Miss You" with Mick and disappoving fans show their angnst by throwing bottles on stage, Keith stops playing and confronts them during the performance.

That was a beautiful throwback (if only for a moment) to "Gimme Shelter Glory Days".

When Angus and Malcom Young of AC/DC join the Stones on stage for "Rock Me Baby" the atmosphere is filled with pure magic. The chemistry and the way their playing complements each other brings chills.

I'm not sure why Justin Timberlake was included with the line up. This is a Rock and Roll Show- The fans were there to rock, not see an ex-member of a "boy band". I actually felt a little sorry for Justin, but it was clearly not his fault. That type of mix was too extreme for 490,000 people standing in the hot July sun drinking lots of beer and ready to feel power chords in their gut.

The extras are great too- its fun watching AC/DC and the Stones get along like old friends and possibly offer a glimpse of a North American tour maybe someday together.

If you are a Rolling Stones or AC/DC fan as I am, Take it from me, If you do not own this already,- Get it Today!....Hurry!

2.0 out of 5 stars Justice not served to Toronto July 22, 2004
Format:DVD
Like many thousands upon thousands of other people, I also witnessed the concert live at the Downsview Park, and may I say that the only word to describe it was awsome, but this 2 Disc DVD set does not capture it.

The first problem is the fact that it is not the complete concert. OK so it would be almost impossible to have the entire concert in 2 disc's but they should have at least done it well. On the first disc everything seems alright, each band has at least 3 or so songs which more then enough covers the early acts.

But where things start to go sour is on disc 2, which should have been the most memoriable containing the star acts such as the Guess Who, Rush, AC/DC, the Rolling Stones and yes even Justin Timberlake. However, all the artists here seem to get LESS then 3 tracks, yes thats right LESS. AC/DC gave "a perfromance that won't ever be forgotten in these parts"(quoted from the booklet inside" get's 2 tracks, just 2, and that's a memoriable performance? They played 12 songs and they get 2??? The Guess Who also has 2/5 tracks on the disc, and Rush gets 3, which does not do this concert justice. And you would think that the Stones would get quite a few right? Nope. Instead, you get 6 tracks, but only 4 of them are done solely by the Stones withotu Justin Timberlake or AC/DC playing onstage. They get 4 tracks, which is the same amount as Sass Jordan received, and who gives a rat's buttux about Sass Jordan when you payed $19 for the concert, and $34 for the DVD, for the Stones, or maybe any of the other's that got the short end of the stick.
