an unhappy owner.....of the BR,
This review is from: Made in Japan [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I was very hopeful when I saw this scheduled for release... and a bit less excited when I picked it up at Best Buy today and noted barely a dozen tunes (not counting drum and guitar solos listed as songs). When you can buy the latest Scorpions set on BR which is a full 2+ hour concert and another nearly half hour of bonus features .....this barely over an hour set with virtually nothing in bonus features seems more suited for a VHS release rather than DVD or .... Blu Ray. The Whitesnake show on DVD from a few years back Whitesnake Live: In the Still of the Night (Deluxe Edition + CD) has this one beat on just about every count and would have made a great BR entry for Whitesnake. Another bummer is that the DVD can be purchased with a two CD bonus set up while the BR is bare bones? Even though it was short and lacking in features I gave in to my desires for some more great Rock video and brought it home today... only to be terribly let down by the actual footage and performance in comparison to the previously noted show.
My suggestion would be to get the 2 CD / DVD set for less money .... I wish I had .. rather than buy this half show blu ray. Another complaint of mine is when the artist/group leads a sing along during one of their best tunes ... I know they enjoy that but I didn't buy a BR of a Whitesnake concert to hear a Japanese audience singing their finale ... it was however a terrific way for this let down of a disc to end.
I like Coverdale and Whitesnake, but can't give this BR any more than half a full rating of 5 stars as this is half a show and no extras.... sorry.

Half a show? What you are getting is the band's full performance at the 2011 Loud Park festival in Japan...there is nothing missing...it's the whole concert that is released.

If this is the whole concert, shame on them, there no band nowadays the play less than 2-3 hours shows. See Rush, Dream Theater, etc....

pay attention, it was a festival....i bet they weren't the headliners, therefor it's only an hour long due to a shorter set time i'm betting...would it have been nice to have more on it?? yes!, i do think there should have been something else on here, but it truly is the full show from the show they are advertising it as, so people should really quit their crying due to them not looking into what they bought a bit more...

CD-heaven is critical about everyone who is unhappy about the BD, but you'll notice that he contradicts himself when he admits he didn't buy it either (he bought the DVD/CD version).
What is it? Are you just bored CD-Heaven???
