One of the best concerts in human history
16 February 2012 | by fuscobalSee all my reviews

Perhaps the best concert I've had the pleasure to watch in my entire life. You can't see that often so many big names in music gathered in one place. The video and audio quality of the blu-ray is really amazing so get it as it's worth every penny ! After hearing so much cheap commercial music all around everyday, you will be delighted to hear these guys singing tens of years after the original releases with almost unchanged tonal qualities and of course no computer aids for the voices ! I've most enjoyed Simon & Garfunkel, U2 & Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen & Tom Morello. I would have only also invited Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits to join this concert and it would have been perfect !
