Even the new material sounds good.
George Dionne
The music is tight and the band seems to really be having a great time on stage and the audience is with them song after song.

A great live DVD to add to my collection.

Finally in 2008 "Winger" fans have something to stand up and cheer about. In the 20 plus years that "Winger" has been rocking they have amassed a legion of loyal fans that just can't get enough of them and their metal sound. Winger "live" is the bands first entry into the DVD concert market and fans won't be disappointed by what they see and hear. The Song list and level of musicianship by the band is sure to please any casual or hard core "Winger" fan. From the second they take the stage there's no doubt why Kip Winger, Reb Beach, John Roth and Rod Morgenstein have been able to hang around for so long.

The DVD concerts 19 song set list is really impressive and the level of showmanship and precision of playing from the guys makes for a great concert experience for those lucky to be in attendance. Kip Wingers voice seems to have stood the test of time and the backing vocals and harmonies are as good as they ever were. The music is tight and the band seems to really be having a great time on stage and the audience is with them song after song.

While this DVD release from Shrapnel is very good it could have been much better. For one thing the Audio mix is only in 2.0 Stereo, so there's no 5.1 Digital or DTS. The picture is really clear but some segments switch from color to black and white for a different effect. I would have preferred they just present the concert straight forward and in color. In my opinion the camera editing could have been so much better, there's a little to much crowd shots for my liking.

When I buy a concert DVD I want to see more of the band performing and less of the crowd. Aside from a couple minor complaints this is an excellent entry into the DVD concert forum for "Winger" and their fans. I highly recommend it!

A fantastic performance from a hair metal classic. Kip Winger gives such a great performance with his meaty vocals and connection with the audience. Not only does he handle bass duties, but he switches it up between piano and acoustic guitar as well. The individual band member's solos are kind of boring, except for Reb Beach's fiery guitar solos. The band as a whole never skips a beat, and delivers some of the most melodic backing vocals. Each and every Winger hit is included and sound great. Even the new material sounds good.

It's not hard to tell that Kip has improved vastly as a songwriter. The material is far more thought-provoking. It was nice to see that the band can have a good laugh at themselves. During their performance of "Seventeen," the group changes the lyrics in the third chorus to `she's only thirty-five.' Has it been that long? I though the group should have closed with this one, but they chose their first hit "Madeline." A definite `must have' for any fan of the hair metal era or fans of great melodic rock in general.

The band gives you a vulgar display of musicianship whilst being highly technical and yet conjuring great melodies - a feat in itself. The band is made up of Reb Beach and Jon Roth on guitars, Rod Morgenstein of drums (this guy is a monster) and last but not least Kip Winger on bass, keyboards and vocals (what a voice!).

Visually the camera changes happen at just the right moment and there are no special effects that ruin so many of the recent live DVDs!.

Get it...thank me later!

This DVD is a great package and certainly a must have for all Winger fans. It contains a comprehensive set list covering all the songs that made Winger famous and highlights their awesome musical abilities. The band is tight and definitely having a great time throughout the show. Winger show us that their musical chops haven't faded one bit with each member proving their reputation via solo spots and flawless playing. The only negative I must mention is that the quality of the footage is average and there is very little in the way of a light show to add to the overall vibe of the concert. These are minor points but with the quality of concert DVD's these days this one is below average in comparison to what's considered standard. Regardless, Winger was always known for their virtuoso playing, great songwriting and interesting arrangements and this DVD gives you front row seats to one of the best bands of the hair metal genre.

Format: DVD
80's hard rock veterans, Winger, rock solidly on their first ever live concert DVD, in a performance recorded at the Galaxy Concert Hall in Orange, California, in 2007, nearly twenty years after their debut record Winger (1988) was released. The band lineup features original members Kip Winger on bass and vocals, Reb Beach on guitar, and Rod Morgenstein on drums, with long time member John Roth also on guitar.

In this show, Winger is emphasizing their newer material. You won't hear anything from their breakout album until almost an hour into this 95 minute show. The band goes instead with selections from In the Heart of the Young (1990), Pull (1993), and their reunion album, IV (2006). The newer material sounds pretty tough and edgy, with the expected punchy bass work from Kip Winger. This version of Winger is mostly keyboard free, as there is no keyboard player onstage, although Kip Winger forgoes his bass, to play keys for a couple of songs.

A master at the tapping technique, generating squeals, and tripping all over the fretboard, Reb Beach is the consummate heavy metal chameleon. Besides Winger, Reb has the versatility to also play in bands like Dokken and Whitesnake. John Roth is less flashy, but as can be seen in this show, is also a very talented player.

Winger isn't exactly a band with a ton of hits, but distancing themselves from their most popular material is an interesting approach. The venue is an intimate one, with the audience (many who are women) right up at the front of the stage. The crowd is either very well behaved, or not that much into crowding up and headbanging. By the time the band rips into Seventeen, at the 70 minute mark, the audience doesn't seem that excited.
