This is one of those videos that make you wish you had a bigger TV. It is crystal clear and the closeups are phenomenal. The music, of course, is superb.

The reviewer who gave it one star is off base saying it should have included mp3s. Anyone who buys this DVD probably already has all of ZZ Top's music on mp3.

The reviewer who gave it two stars said it changed camera angles too rapidly. I, too, get dizzy watching shows that do that but I didn't notice it with this DVD.

ZZ Top has long been known as an outstanding live act, one of the best in the business. Loud, proud, three guys, three chords, with so much cool it just drips from the stage. Having seen these guyzz live twice, I know they can bring the funk better than most. Problem is, how does this brilliant of a live band not release anything live (except for side one of Fandango and the second half of XXX, and the bonus tracks on the Tres Hombres and Fandango remasters) until now? Well, regardless of the situation, that's been remedied. I picked this up at Wal-Mart for 10 bucks, and it is ABSOLUTELY worth every penny and then some. The band is hitting on all cylinders. Billy is playing like a madman, Dusty's holding the groove, and Frank is killer on the skins. Sure, Billy lip syncs during Legs. Sure, they use synthesizer backing tracks on some songs. It doesn't matter. What does matter is that this band just brings it, every night, every song. The show is filmed very well, very clear and sharp. The sound is amazing and the set list is so full of hits even a classic rock station can't keep up. The Eliminator hits? Check. La Grange/Tush? Check. Bus Jesus? Check. Cheap Sunglasses? Check. Plus, the bonus features are very cool too. There is a poker game where the band discusses their past and tells all sorts of stories. They show all the pre-show goings-on that happen before the band hits the stage. There is a cool photo-shoot. And they also have a tremendous cover of Hendrix's Foxey Lady, which they take and make it heavy ZZ-style. Overall, this is one of the best concert dvds I own, right there with Clapton's Crossroads Festivals, SRV's Live At The El Mocambo, Joe Bonamassa's Live At Rockpalast, and Led Zeppelin's DVD anthology. They have waited a very long time to do this, but when they did, they did it right. Get it, turn it loud, put on your cheap sunglasses, and like ZZ say: bear down on the meat, ease up on the potato salad.

I wondered why ZZTop never produced a concert DVD before, so I preordered this new release when I heard a radio announcement about the release party at the Hard Rock Cafe here in Houston.

I noticed that the boys are incredibly tight as a team, but the individual players get a tad sloppy or loose here and there throughout the concert. However, I knew this about the band members from seeing them in concert four times. Fortunately, they remembered all the words to the songs they sang and appeared alert and sober!

I had tickets to see ZZTop in Beaumont, Texas and they cancelled the show the night before the event... so I bought this to enjoy the concert I missed.

The audio and video quality is excellent, even though it's not a bluray, so I'm giving this edition of it five stars.

Billy's guitar work on "Just Got Paid" is worth the price of the DVD. I watched it twice and now I have to stop writing this review and go back to watch it a third time even louder. My wife is gonna scream, but I don't care.

This is not a reflection on ZZTop's performance. The video editing had the 30 different angles a minute mentalality that drives me crazy. I do have an attention span that lasts more than a few seconds. You could not get much of a look at the fretboard during a solo before it flipped to the audience or somewhere else again and again and again. Same with the drummer. The bass player? Forget it......The WORST part was the sound. Instead of getting the audio feed direct from the board for a DVD, you get what sounded like a hand held mike from the back row with all the echo intact. This made the singing and speaking an audio blur. Dusty could have taken the night off because his bass was inaudible. Why can't editors/directors and sound engineers figure this out themselves? This is supposed to be a professional DVD of a concert. We expect much better editing and sound.

I love ZZ Top , and was looking forward to this Blu Ray disc but the audio is bloody terrible.I re checked the audio set up on both my ps3 and the disc it self but still made no difference.However the picture was pretty good, but thats not the point is it.
This should have been a first class, thumping , guitar driven, rockin roll disc, and like another review wrote it sound like somebody used a hand held mike to record the audio, not happy!!!!!

Awesome DVD, I've been waiting decades for live ZZ Top.

The audio quality is messed up for me. I thought it might be my system, but even after checking the Dolby 2.0 on my computer, It's weirdly fluctuating the overall level constantly like a compressor turning on and off. Maybe it's my stuff, and not the DVD, anybody else have this problem?

Don't let this review stop you from buying this right away, the performance is fantastic, the direction is great, unlike so many concert films. It's simply amazing these 3 guys can pull off live songs that have dozens of overdubs on the studio recordings, and Billy is showing that he is simply one of the very best guitarists ever.

To all the purists who don't like the Eliminator and later material, don't worry, this is heavy on the classics, only throwing in the required hits from the MTV days, plus one of the bonus feature is a cover of Foxey Lady by a guy who was actually a friend of Jimi Hendrix.

Best $10 I've spent in a looooong time.
