The great camera work and audio and film transfer means watching this will be 10x better than having been at that massive outdoor venue at the time.
Surround sound is in it so if you have a 5.1 or better system your in for a treat. Big screen to see the beauty of the digitized film. Awesome.
If you're a guitarist who loves Angus' playing, get this. You won't regret the shots of him shredding, and you'll be amazed at the sound he gets from his wireless GS.
If you're a bassist who loves Cliff's playing, get this. You won't regret watching how the bottom end should be done correctly -- while singing.
If you're a rhythm guitarist who is curious about the brains behind this band, get this and watch how it's done -- with a Gretsch guitar.
If you're a drummer who needs to learn how to play without using ride cymbals or elaborate fills, get this. Chris Slade, the replacement for Phil Rudd (who'd now back in the band) is a master of killin' it without flash or fills. And if you want to see how 1/8th notes are done at 200 bpm, he shows you how to do it, -- for over ten minutes.
If you're a singer who loves Bon Scott, too bad. You'll have to suffer through Brian Johnson's screeching. I know, I know, you either love his singing or hate it. Now you know where I stand.
If you're just a fan who wonders how Angus stays so thin, get this so you can see him run about 5 miles during his performance. It's almost unbelievable.
I'd bought the original dvd when it came out years ago, and the blu-ray one recently; it's well worth getting blu-ray as it's sharper and clearer than ever.
I think Chris Slade is the best AC/DC drummer I've ever seen, he rocks on Donnington and I would've liked to seen him on this one too. Slade's work on Donnington is the best drumming I've seen on any concert dvd in history.
This dvd rocks hard and it's one I've played dozens of times, it's great to watch on a big tv or projection system with sound turned Way up. Rock on!

And I'm certainly glad that I've finally taken the plunge. The visuals, with all the different camera angles, keep you interested without feeling that there are too many cuts. And I thought the sound was very good, with good stereo separation.
I went for the 2009 Sony release, and certainly didn't notice any negative instances of overdubbing or re-recording (as mentioned by other reviewers) while I was watching it.
This is a great setlist, ranging from Bon Scott era classics to The Razor's Edge (one of my favourites), which was their most recent album at the time.
One of the hightlights for me was "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", which sounds great - I didn't even know that I like it so much!
As well as a few tracks where you can watch a camera that follows just one of the band members for the whole song, extras include a commentary by Angus and Malcolm Young on the event, and a few words of background information on each of their albums.
If you like AC/DC but don't own this, it's time you did! It's the Brian Johnson-fronted line-up at the peak of their powers!
However, this is a classic AC/DC concert and is still one of their best full-length DVD concerts, along with 'Live At River Plate' and 'Let There Be Rock'.
