First, this concert looks just beautiful in high-definition. You can see all the details in the Indian rugs on which the band stands, for instance. It also sounds pretty darn good, too, thanks to the terrific musicians in Tom Petty's band. Mike Campbell on lead guitar and Benmont Tench on keyboards were particularly good, I thought.

Petty has never had that good a voice but yet he's interesting to hear and he comes across as a real likable guy. All of the group's members, which also include bassist Ron Blair and guitar-harmonic-harmony vocals Scott Thurston and drummer Steve Ferrone all look like they're having a good time. I suspect they usually do when they're playing.

Everybody has their favorites songs of each artist and group and, at least in this concert, mine was "Melinda," which featured fantastic piano by Tench and an interesting guitar sound from Campbell. You can't go wrong either with rock "oldies" like "Baby, Please Don't Go" and "Born In Chicago," "Red Rooster" and "I Got A Woman." There is a good mix of fast and slow, rock and blues and ballads.....all adding up to an entertaining show.

While our music/movie room gets more use from operas and classical music, I do have a few rock and jazz blu-rays (Chris Botti, Legends of Jazz, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds etc.)
I saw part of this performance on TV in my living room with only a 4.0 setup, but I liked it enough to order the blu-ray.
Upon hearing the DTS-MA sound track now twice in our 7.1 setup, I found the recording mix a tad unbalanced. The rhythm guitar on the right when viewed from the audience is often not loud enough compared to all the other instruments/voices.
You can hear it best when comparing "I got a woman" to "13 days". The mix on "13 days" is much better.
Everything else is well recorded and I still enjoyed it. But it can get only 4 stars from me.

Well here we go guys. I think I have quite possibly discovered the find of the year. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on SOUND STAGE. Picked it up Sunday at SEARS. I don't know where to begin. Lets just say if you don't have it GET it! If you do have it I am preaching to the choir. I have the Tom Petty Box Set and listen to it when the mood srikes. Not a huge Petty fan but do like his stuff that has not been played to death on top forty. Saw him in 2008 mainly to see Winwood who opened for him. The Show was good but nothing that gave me goose bumps. This DVD gave me goose bumps and actually brought tears to my eyes on Melinda. This DVD is probably the most polished best recorded DVD on the market today. The color on the stage is un-freakingbelievabl. No I am NOT kidding! The two songs that will blow you away are Melinda and Two Men Talking. I HIGHLY recomend this disc to anyone who truely enjoys REAL music. Let me know what you all think.

It's hard to understate the Quality of the Audio, Video, and Band Performance of this disc. Special treat: make sure to catch the Benmont Tench piano solo on "Melinda". A true Demo disc to wow your friends.

This blue ray disc is one of the best i've ever seen.The sound quality is outstanding and the song selection is as well.
The concert is over 2 hours of great music , from "Crawling back to you" and "I won't back down" ,"Handle with care" "Love is a long road" to old time rock and roll classics ,such as "Baby please don't go" "Carol" to blues like "Born in Chcago" and "Red rooster". Video quality is also outstanding with some nice extra tracks as well. I think that even at 30 bucks it's well worth it to any Petty fan!

I bought this blu-ray for my show floor demo, and it get's good reviews from a lot of customers. Maybe not so much for the picture quality but the music and quality of the sound.
