2010 saw Gary Moore make a return to rock music after a long period of time exploring the blues. He was writing and working on a new rock album when all was brought to a halt by his untimely death on February 6th, 2011. This concert from Montreux in July 2010 was his last performance to be filmed. The setlist draws heavily on his hugely successful rock albums of the eighties, stirs in a couple of his classic blues tracks with some memorable hit singles and includes three brand new songs that would have featured on the album left sadly uncompleted on his death. Gary Moore was one of the finest and most respected guitarists the British Isles have ever produced. This concert shows just what a talent we will miss. / Bonus Features: Four previously unreleased tracks from Gary Moore s 1997 performance at Montreux: 1) One Good Reason 2) Oh Pretty Woman 3) Still Got The Blues 4) Walking By Myself / TRACK LISTING: 1) Over The Hills And Far Away 2) Thunder Rising 3) Military Man 4) Days Of Heroes 5) Where Are You Now? 6) So Far away / Empty Rooms 7) Oh Wild One 8) Blood Of Emeralds 9) Out In The Fields 10) Still Got The Blues 11) Walking By Myself 12) Johnny Boy 13) Parisienne Walkways

Returning home from a party celebrating my Green Bay Packers win in the Super Bowl, I logged onto my computer to Amazon.com and went to the Customer Forums (remember them?). I saw the entry of a person saying RIP Gary Moore. I was devastated. Going from a huge high to an extreme low was a terrible thing. At least we have his albums and videos to remember him by. RIP Gary, love ya man. One of the absolute greats, a true guitar-god.
Therefore, I set myself on a quest to see everything he recorded on video, and to own every piece of music he put out. This video is most likely for true fans, because you get to see the late Moore at Montreux in 2010, and some extras of a previous show at the same venue. It is very hard to tell the difference between the two in terms of playing quality. His tone was beyond this world, and his singing was very particular and touching. I give this film 4 stars without hesitation, but I warn casual viewers and not loyal fans to Moore that this may not be your cup of tea. There are other videos of him that are considered better, at least for starters.
The proof is in the pudding, watch and listen to the audience you can see it in their faces and hear it in their voices.
I have read some of the other reviews and I was appalled that some would fault Mr. Moore for getting old!
Talking about the weight gain and voice not as good.
Let me say getting old is part of life and some of our bodies handle it differently.
Some loose all their hair, some put on wait in our middles, some our voices change. Shall I go on?
On that note I have been a fan from the beginning Skid Row and followed Gary through the years. I have all his music, and I love it.
Seeing him in one of his last performances, I consider it a very special moment in his life.
on a scale of 1 to 10 I give this concert a 20!!
After watching I did not run and get a older concert to watch I put it back in and watched a second time. This is on my list of all time favorites.
This is probably a 3.5 star show for me, but I am a big Moore fan so I leaned high. I know based on some other reviews that I may cop some flack for my opinion on the vocals, but I can only call it how I see it.
Hopefully down the road a concert that reflects how good Gary Moore was in his prime will be released. Sadly this won't get many viewings.
I'm going to miss Gary Moore, no question about that but I am so glad Eagle Rock has released this DVD and Gary's other performances at Montreux. I treasure all of those DVDs as well as this blu-ray.
The video and sound are great here. I have a 5.1 home theater set up and this blu-ray sounds and looks excellent.
The bonus tracks are 4 songs that were edited out of his 1997 performance on The Definitive Montreux Collection DVD set (another AWESOME DVD set!). That set contains his performances from 5 different years and some of the duplicated songs were edited out to fit on 2 DVDs. It's nice to have these 4 performances added on to this blu-ray.
