This is without a doubt the best Music DVD of 2003. With it's stunning location and setting, this DVD will leave you enthralled. Mick Hucknall is at his best, with a voice that compliments a line up of fabulous musicians. The sound that fills this Greek theatre, in Taormina in Sicily is Simply Wonderful, with the Italian crowd enjoying every minute of it. It certainly makes a good nights viewing, and the songs, both old and new leave you wanting more. For anyone who has bought this DVD will agree, that this is one concert you'll want to watch over and over again. This DVD has been given high ratings all over the world, so for anyone who has not yet purchased a copy, get one now, you won't be disappointed.

Simply Red - Home (Live in Sicily)

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.

Mick Hucknell's exceptional voice is like a total body massage to my ears! His performance is unbelievably perfect. As he performs each song, his love of performing the music and love of the audience is obvious. I've never seen any performer so HAPPY while performing. He is "Simply Joyous". And the fun he is having on stage is contageous. The person who spent their entire comment here selling a projector...totally missed the entire point of the concert. So sad. I am lucky to have a widescreen HDTV and Bose sound system...and he used every inch and sound available! As a side note to anyone who wondered why Mick Hucknell performed in Italy, Italy has been his BEST venue over the years. Nearly every album released has done better there than any place else. THEY love him...and so do I. His is the best voice for the past 100 years...performing live...and NEVER missing a single note. Many of my other fave groups would do well to perform ONE song without missing notes. Mick is EXCEPTIONALLY talented. His backup band/singers are also great performers. We are blessed to be able to see and hear these concerts. PS: I am very happy he recently became a dad. I'm sure it will inspire even greater music from him.

This is such a superb concert that i can't bring myself to deduct any stars for a video editor hellbent on changing screen shots every one to three seconds. All the changes are abrupt and a little fade in and out would have at least helped. Anyway, Mick Hucknall voice is in fine form as always and the band sounds so good topped off by a fabulous horn section. I only wish if performed, 'For Your Babies' was included.

It's been a while since I listened to Simply Red on CD, but that's going to change effective NOW! I bought this DVD without any expectations other than watching Mick Hucknall perform his standards. I was blown away!! I highly recommend watching the documentary before watching the concert. It started out great and simply got greater over the 90 minutes that Simply red performed. His band is exceptional! It was interesting watching the crowd at the beginning of the show and subsequently standing and participating with every song. His talent and the bands tightness created a masterpiece with "You Make Me Feel Brand New." The concert continued uphill. Bravissimo! Not having the opportunity to attend, the next best thing was watching this DVD. It renewed my faith in music.

This is a great show, great and interesting DVD..beautiful setting for the concert. The audio is good but expect only sound from the front and center speakers. You won't hear much from the surround speakers at all (not even the audience' applause at the end of each song...). I don't know who did the surround sound mixing but it is pretty bad if you compare it to other DVD concerts with DTS 5.1 surround options (check Peter Gabriels DVDs, Elton John's recent Box Set and even Rolling Stones latest DVD set) and you will see what I am talking about.

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.

This is a wonderful performance captured in concert in a gorgeous setting outdoors in Sicily. I originally saw a shortened performance of this concert on PBS, so was thrilled to have this dvd with the entire concert, plus a documentary and two extra songs.
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!
