Last night I watched "The Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour - Live From Melbourne"
The 5.1 sound is incredible with all kinds of music
and audience participation coming from everywhere.
The camera work/angles gave great visuals and the quality is incredible.
The Eagels were on top of their performance and Joe Walsh was great.
I'd highly recommend this DVD :up:
So which ones have you seen?

Ohhhh...My dad and I have a bunch... :D
Metallica - Cliff Em' All!
Old bootleg and TV stuff of the Cliff Burton-era Metallica...Sound and video is kind of sketchy (Since VHS was still the thing back then), but as long as you get to see them...Kind of interesting seeing them live, especially Cliff when he does his improv bass solos...I didn't care much for Cliff until I bought this DVD...The guy's a lead guitarist trapped inside a bassist's body, and yet he always played with his fingers...Nuts! :D
Metallica - Cunning Stunts
Metallica from 1996 or 1997; Filmed in Fort Worth, TX...They had just cut their hair and were on the verge of releasing "Re-Load"...Has alot of interesting stuff on here...There's a nice bass "doodle" that Jason Newstead does in the middle of the set, and then Kirk Hammett comes in later too; James Hetfield does the solo to "Nothing Else Matters"; Jason puts the bass down to play the drums during the warm-up for the encore; And they even destroy the stage after the guitar solo in "Enter Sandman"... :D
Rush in Rio
Rush after they had released their "Vapor Trails" album in Rio...So many great camera angles on this one! Focuses so much attention to the music...If you're a musician and a fan of Rush, then this is a DVD to pay attention to...Especially if you're a drummer; Neil Peart's drum solo is so fuckin' awsome, that words can't even begin to describe it... :D
Iron Maiden - Rock in Rio
Another great band playing in Rio; This one being off the heels of their "Brave New World" release...I love this DVD so much because it's 21st century Maiden; I mean, how could you not see yourself being entertained to the sight of a band that has 3 guitarists? :D They play everything too, from Iron Maiden's first album to their latest prior to the filming...And of course, Bruce's antics and his "Scream for me!" are all immortalized on DVD... :D
Judas Priest - Electric Eye
Judas back in the 80's somewhere along the time of "Turbo Lover"...My dad watches this more often than I do, but you can definitly tell when Judas get into the pocket with some of their songs like "Living After Midnight"...The only thing that sucks is that the DVD never focuses much on the drummer or bassist throughout the set...But aside from that, it's still classic metal...Especially when they strech out and kick ass with "You've Got Another Thing Coming"... :D
Ozzfest - 10th Anniversary
This is a compilation of most of the bands that played on the 2005 set...Great DVD with a lot of variety...Not much to say here, other than just a great fistful of metal... :D Of course, I can't say much because it's a DVD when I attended Ozzfest myself back in July 2005, although the DVD allowed me to see some bands I missed during my admission (Such as Trivium and Black Sabbath)...
My cousin Justin also has DVDs I've seen...Black Label Society's "Boozed, Broozed, and Broken Boned" is nothing short of pure metal with some of the best Limp Bizkit-Fred Durst bashing I've seen coming from Zakk Wylde...Godsmack's "Faceless" is another great metal DVD with a kickass drum solo face-off between front-man Sully Erna and drummer Shannon Larkin (Which Shannon's style reminds me of The Who's Keith Moon)...And his Metallica's "S&M" is also awsome ("The Call of Ktulu" fits so perfectly with an orchestra backing them up :D )...

This weekend I went out and bought PULSE by Pink Floyd...
First, if your a hard core Pink Floyd fan, you have to get past
the absense of Roger Waters.
Once you do that, this DVD is awsome.
The concert footage is 145 minutes of magic.
And the light show and visuals are like nothing I've seen before.
They open with "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"
which is quite fitting now that Sid is gone,
and go from there into allot of other great Pink Floyd songs.
On Disc 2, they perform Dark Side of the Moon in it's entirety,
and then 3 encores.
Everybody in the band were at the top of their game that night.
Including the 3 female backup singers, who will blow you away
with their solos on "The Great Gig In The Sky".
The 5.1 surround sound is excellent, where they give you
the options of a standard 448kbps bitstream,
or a 640kbps output for higher-end DVD players, in the audio setup.
My system handled the 640kbps so it rocked!
And the camera work is equally as excellent.
The rest of the 2 DVD's are full of extras and goodies.
My opinion is this is well worth the money.
Out of 5 stars I'd give it 4.75.
If Roger Waters were on bass, it would have gotten 5 without a doubt.
