Nice indeed. But I have to admit that I'm not so eager to but it (I will buy it anyway)... Do we really need another live version of What do you want from me or Money or Time, since Pulse and Gdansk are ageing pretty well? :roll: The blue.... again? [-X

I'll be buying it just because it's in Pompeii. But I can't say I'm all that excited about hearing The Bore for the umpteenth time. At least there's a "skip" button on my DVD player :wink:

agreed; never listen to the blue. live, however, it was amazing. I think it really came alive on this tour, compared to 2006 (not that I was at any show then). the guitar solo is just incredible live; no guitar player that I know if plays quite like that (makes me wish for a knock-out live version of marooned...). faces of stone also came alive on the stage during the solo though I'd never really listen to it at home or in my car.

I'll be buying the Blu-Ray, and I'm looking forward to the tracks that weren't part of the cinema screening.

It is so appetising I'm tempted to buy a Blu-ray player.... but I'm unclear as to whether those play dvds as well.

I'm pretty sure that all blu-ray players will play DVDs as well. Mine certainly does. It'll also play VCD, raw data DVDs with files on them (if it likes the format), etc. etc. etc.

Sadly I won't be buying the Blu-Ray or DVD - being a uni student, there are some things I cannot have. However I am getting the 2CD version. I was tempted by the LP set, but that would be an expense that would be hard to justify.

My Blu-Ray player plays ordinary DVDs too. I can't remember how much I paid for it (could be two years since I bought it) but it wasn't that expensive.

I will probably buy it and I expect it will be like the Live In Gdansk dvd - it will still be unwatched in the wrapper 9 years later

It'll fill the skip headed for landfill when you pop your clogs.

has anyone got their hands on the deluxe version? it's not available for download (edit: legally on itunes/amazon etc!). I saw the edited concert in the theatre, but I'm particularly after information regarding the north america 2016 and europe 2015/2016 videos.

Listening to it right now. Disc one very good, although the great gig....mh. Disc two: is Lisa Simpson the sax player?
