For people who had heard of the band but never heard anything by them I implore you to buy this DVD. This was a band at the top of its game that everything came together on one special night - performances - unity so it appeared - an unsurpassed stage production in sound and singer - only for them to sack their unique focal and vocal point two hours after the gig!! To say they will never attain these heights again is perhaps rash but "Once" ( pun intended ) seen never forgotten and leaves wanting you to watch it again and again. As talented as the replacement singer is she and the band secretly know that the songs will never be performed like this again, hopefully until the necessary re-union if at all hatchets can be buried and not into each others heads!!

I am an avid Nightwish fan, I eagerly awaited my copy of the Blu-ray as soon as I realised it was available. I was eager in anticipation to see this, Tarja Turinen's last with Nightwish in HD.

Firstly, the 'negatives.' No, it's not 1080p HD...... Well, actually that is the only negative. The concert is however in HD, 720p and has come out very very well. It's a beautifully filmed production that really does capture the power of Nightwish's music and the emotion of th occasion brilliantly.

This is the best quality version of the this concert available, as such I cannot recommend it highly enough. I give this product 4/5 rather then a perfect score to reflect the lower resolution then many purchasers may expect. The quality of the show itself though cannot be questioned, it's spectacular.

This was an amazing DVD. A great performance and great quality. A complete bargain too. I've seen this DVD in a local shop for 33 euros and in another for 29.95.

Got the DVD in 2007. When I play it for friends, they are all thrilled of the stunning performance from all musicians. And not only people who like hard rock or heavy, my wife and grandchildren from 4 year are loving it as well, and have seen it many times. Especially Tarja makes a fantastic performance on stage in Finland (Helsinki) were they come from, moving around that gives the whole show a sense of "far from static", like other concerts. Not only as a pretty woman, but her powerful voice fits the music perfect. After the show is ended I ask my friends how many different dresses she was wearing? They can gladly watch it over again to count!

All musicians have their moments many times in the concerts, keyboardist (who started the band with Tarja) show his skills. Guitar is very often taking your attention. Bass-guitar is very often invicible (sometimes also sound) but not this guy. And the drummer really bang the drums. Not to forget when they take a brake, they let a strange guy play and sing (it cant be silent during brake), big chance you dont take a brake!

When you see how nice they perform together in this concert (which is the end of a long tour) it is completely not to understand why Tarja was fired the same night!!! She was by the groups decicion fired before the concert, but was informed 10 min after the show? I guess she didnt had a nice time that night. Maybe she had been to much of a primadonna, but there must probably be many egocentric persons in the group to be able to end up in such a disaster.

Ive bought the BD in 2012 to see if the concert was better than DVD on my new BD player and full HD nano-LED screen. It was maybe not much better, because the audio on both is exellent, and picture is not the fantastic quality like BD can be.

As far as the video quality goes for blu-ray this is very poor.
an average of 24mbit MPEG-2 at 720p isn't good enough, infact its insulting.
to me it looks like they shot it in HD, downscaled it to DVD, and then upscaled it back to HD and slapped it on on disc. very blurry washed out picture.
DD5.1 is fine but for gods sake if your going to the hassle of a Blu-Ray release do it right! a DTS HD / Dolby HD or similar track would of been far more appropriate for music of this scale.
tested on a Sony S760 with a 50" 1080p plasma.
otherwise excellent gig. but 720p.. Unbelievable, but more importantly, WHY??
NuclearBlast, dont bother with Blu-Ray releases anymore, you clearly have no idea what your doing in that department!

After watching this 1 hour and 43 minute performance a couple of times on YouTube I just had to buy the DVD and CD Album. Yes you can criticise the quality of the camera work and the long shots etc but surely that seems to indicate you are not paying full attention to the brilliant musical composition, energetic performance and great stage craft of this group.
