Seriously, I swear I started to feel an epileptic fit coming on by the end of this show. It's actually a really good performance (although Rob sounds kinda rough at the high-end of his range these days), but the ADD editing ruins the whole experience for me. VERY rarely does a frame last for more than 2 seconds before the camera angle changes, and it stays that way - FOR THE ENTIRE SHOW. I've never watched a more visually-fatiguing, headache-inducing live concert video in my entire life.

What a shame, the audio is pretty good for the most part, although I'd agree that the bass is somewhat lacking. I just can't believe a guy like Rob would approve something with this sort of amateur editing as an official release. Adding to my disappointment, it arrived loose in the case, and while I can find no visible scratches on the disc, it freezes up intermittently throughout the video. Sending this one back, may try to see if I can tell them to keep it and put the money towards the new Black Country Communion dvd. Color me vastly disappointed.

Saw Halford last year with this setlist in Chicago House of Blues. Great show! Was very excited to see this come out. This show was a few weeks or so before I saw them in Chicago so I wanted to have this so to relive. Well the video is great. Whoever recoreded the 5.1 hd audio needs to find other work immediately. There is no L.F.E. at all. In other words my subwoofer only detects sound if I switch it to 2 channel. Luckily I have enough tweaks with my reciever to make it sound decent. I have tried many other bluray music discs just to make sure and well it is only this one. When it starts out for all the recent and updated Halford releases including all the remasters it freaking jams. Then the show starts and you are like I can't hear anything? So then you turn it up. Cool well where is the bass? Oh its in the 2 channel. Well that's just great. Lets just go back to vhs. Halford is the greatest unfortunately the audio dude for this is not.

I was looking forward to this DVD coming out, but after the reviews here, I will not be buying this one. As the reviewer above states, frames jumping every 2 seconds is dizzying and not for me. I have an Iron Maiden dvd of Rock in Rio that does that, and its not watchable. Gives me a headache with all the fast changes. I have always wondered why they would not film from dead center showing the full stage, so you can see the whole band as they rock out? To me this over editing has ruined many concert dvds. Would you want to watch a football game and only see close-ups of the quarterback and then the receiver catching the ball and nothing else? That's not how you see things when you are at a game or at a concert. I just saw Priest 2 wks ago in Dallas, it was awesome, no close-ups, not fast cutting, it was great watching the whole band interact and rock the place out. Love Halford, but not buying this one. I would love the chance to re-edit this dvd among others, to restore all that was missed due to over editing. One last note: as to the sound, i too have several dvd's where the sound kicks ass on the intro, but once you get to the concert not so much. really wtf are these people thinking?

Want a great dvd concert? Buy Queens Live in Montreal. Excellent camera work, and the sound is incredible. That's how you make a concert dvd and it was filmed in 81.

btw: I am available to re-edit any and all concert dvd's that suck. lol.

These producers (including Steve Harris of Iron Maiden fame) would stop playing with the f'ing camera cuts and lenses and focus on the performances and stop editing every 2 freaking seconds. Quit changing the f'ing camera angles, you do NOT need a camera change every 2 seconds to 5 seconds. Sometimes I'm standing at a small arena and I can see just fine and I'm looking at the performers through binoculars to see how good they're doing.

The sound is 4.5 stars, halford is 5 stars, video edit is 3 stars (change scene every second¡), and for my taste the song setlist is 2.5 stars there are many fillers here and also they forgot to put more songs from the crucible album ( for me the best of halford), i dislike stupid songs like locked and loaded, cyberworld,thunder and lightning, likes theres no tomorrow, fire and ice and of cousre the commercial made of metal. Where is the mower, speed of sound, and hell razor for me the best cut of the last album , this dvd have 11 good songs and the six worst halford songs. Shame that he have so many good songs. Maybe its the fact that i dont like too much the latest album. Hope these words help you with all repect.

Its a really cool show, but i didnt like the tracklist, even it has a few classics, and the sound its not the better, i bought it with "Holy diver Live" by DIO, and comparing with this, the diference of the mixing of sound its amazing, i think that this blu ray it could be better. Thanks anyway

REVIEW FOR HALFORD FANS...

First,I want to thanks again to my friend Gianny Painkiller,that made me as gift some money to can buy this video,and also to thanks to Amazon team,that treated me with promptitude into send me the pack,that I ordered the pack,on 10 October,tow days before the birthday of my ex.man who died,but they couldn't fix my order then,cause I got some card problems,so I re-order the pack on 18 October(on my father birthday)with the most law cost tax services,cause that is what i could afford,a reason for which I never bought directly from Halford company,cause their postal taxes are more expensive than their products,anyway,they estimated to send me the pack on 3 November,but I received it on 24 October already,straight from Campbellsville,KY, South Columbia,USA,from the new office they had opened there,that is why probably they didn't had yet enough cartoon for envelopes,and neither enough paper for ,cause they had put the pack into a paper envelope,and the on a piece of paper, on which I neither saw my name,lucky that this was passed on the envelope,otherwise I didn't knew that the pack is for me,due the fact as in our house,live many family members.
