I first saw this performance on DIRECT TV channel 101 -- I have always been a SIMPLY RED fan but this performance blew me away. When I found a DVD of this live performance of many of the group's (what I consider) most loved songs I didn't hesitate to buy it -- I probably should buy at least two more as I play this DVD almost every day and I'd like one for my car so I can listen while a drive. ALTHOUGH lead singer (and undoubtedly the band's musical inspiration) Mick Hucknall seems to be the star -- the musicians behind him are unbelieveable!! YOU may think I am giving this TOO MUCH hype -- but believe me -- once you LISTENED to this performance, then WATCHED it, you will understand and feel just like me. GREAT EXAMPLE for anyone under the age of 20 who weren't around when this band first starting performing and FANTASTIC for jazz lovers.
Don't get me wrong...the sound is acceptable but don't expect a fully 5.1 surround mix nor in Dolby Digital nor in DTS.
Having been a Simply Red fan since the 80's, this is a wonderful way to experience Mick and his band in a perfect setting on a perfect night.
I have always loved the way Mick owns the stage and his audience and also how tight the band is together. Sara Brown and Dee Johnson also are fantastic doing the back-up vocals.
I also purchased the 25th anniversary concert, and am glad to have both. This dvd features the "Home" album prominently, mainly in the first half of the concert.
For die-hard Mick fans, the "Mick Cam" is a fun featured extra, which allows you to watch the entire concert with cameras only on him!
I would also highly recommend this dvd for it's outstanding production, sound, lighting, etc. If you are a Simply Red fan, this is a wonderful addition to your collection. Having never had the opportunity to see them perform "live" here in the States, this is a way to enjoy the amazing concert experience!

Simply Red never disappoints me with his music. It's truly magical. He's one of the best songwriters ever. And I don't know what I would do for my mental state of mind without it. Read morePublished on March 11, 2014 by sanderella56
