5.0 out of 5 stars Lights up 20 Oct 2008
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am new to John Mayer & have bought this DVD on the back of his performances on the 2 'Crossroads' DVDs.
It's a bit difficult to categorize Mayer as although he is undoubtedly a very accomplished guitarist he does not seem to highlight his own playing very much. Rather he seems to throw his real efforts into his singing which, as has already been noted, is very Stevie Ray Vaughan in quality, so that his guitar work seems to come second in his priorities. A shame as he really has some talent that works equally well when unleashed & raw,(his work on 'Who did you think I was' is really very impressive), or when stripped down to the bone in the quite beautiful & moving cover of Tom Pettys' 'Freefalling' with just mayer, an acoustic guitar & 2 others providing contrast & harmonies.
Not everything works here. Although the offstage footage may be of interest to Mayers fans it detracts from the concert feel & quite frankly he is a bit of a pretentious 'artiste',(his getting the hump with the papparazzi- what did you expect? Then his 'oooh which of my ever so expensive watches shall I choose to wear on stage?' bit was immature & crass),. A shame as quite frankly I didn't buy this to get to know the guy but just to watch a concert. Also the idea of splitting everything into 3 separate sections is just too awkward & stagey. Just get out there & play, some acoustic, some as a 3 piece, some as the whole band, don't make a big thing of it.
The moans aside this is still a 5 star DVD because when Mayer gets it right he is superb, touching & vulnerable,(he is obviously very grateful to his fans & treats them with respect & thanks), with a soulful voice & a deft touch with the guitar. His choice of accompanying musicians is also spot on.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Mayer is Where The Light Is. 4 Feb 2010
Format:Blu-ray
I was first introduced to John Mayer when I saw him live at the Crossroads gig in 2004 on VH1. Since then I have listened to Continuum and some of his earlier stuff, and borrowed the CD of Where The Light Is from a mate. I loved it. John Mayer live is like an animal being freed from captivity. I find with his albums it sounds like he's being held back by snooty Music Execs who only wish to produce mainstream easy listening songs, that sell but are a safe option. Every single song Mayer plays live sounds better than its album counterpart. The bluray quality is awesome, the picture is great and the sound is even better. I would suggest this DVD to anyone who has never heard of John Mayer before - its like 3 gigs for the price of 1 and really gives you a feel of what he's about, and not what his management want him to be about. The DVD extras are excellent and its interesting to see what Mayer and the band do immediately before and after they have played infront of 7000 people. This DVD proves that Mayer is one of the greatest guitarists of the modern day.

Buy the CD. By the DVD. Get it on bluray. Invite your mates round. Be in awe of this guys musical talents. I will guarantee with all honesty that you WILL NOT regret buying this DVD.

P.S Ignore the fact he carries a puppy with him everywhere, nobodys perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar/muso heaven 3 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
I've slowly got into john mayer over the last year or so, being introduced to him by guitar students. there's so much good about this.

for any musician of my generation pino paladino and robbie macintosh are well known. Real quality pedigrees. for those of you that don't know the names, they've played with everyone...and the reason is they're perfect. Each of the band line-ups present a lesson in how to play the right parts for the song. Which is why paladino and mackintosh, and the others got their jobs.

mayer's own guitar playing is of such good quality, referencing any great guitarist, including SRV, Clapton, Even a little of Beck. His song writing is great quality. (i transcribed Neon for a student, and it still takes me an age to work it up, and then trying to sing to...oh dear).

The bad bits - ok...at times the 3 piece section sounds like his voice and playing are too SRV. but imo he rescues it with some great mayfield/hendrix rhythm playing.

Er...he's too handsome.

If you like guitar playing, have an open mind, and want to hear someone completely classy - get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars No words... 23 May 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Well what can I say apart from absolutely jaw-dropping from start to finish.

Being on a blu-ray, the soundtrack is pristine, and the video quality is bright, vibrant and pure, which is as expected. It feels like you are in the concert.
I first got into John Mayer when I had to learn 'Gravity' for a University Performance (Musician). After listening to this song, I discovered his other music and back-catalogue, and his music really grabs you and doesn't let go; you become absolutely hooked.
Mayer provides evidence of his flawless technicality as a guitarist, as well as a very talented vocalist (not forgetting him being an extraordinary song writer). The concert starts with him performing five songs acoustically, and these are some of my favourite parts of the concert. Such effortless talent!
He then goes on with the second set, as the John Mayer Trio (featuring Steve Jordan on drums and backing vocals, and Pino Palladino on bass guitar), and finishes with the third set as the John Mayer Band.
Myself being a drummer means that I get lost and caught up in the metronomic groove of Jordan and the band drummer, J.J. Johnson. These guys are just superb, and really do a great job.

As well as the concert itself, the blu-ray comes with a few cheeky little extras. There is a backstage performance of 'Belief' available through download via bd-live, a picture in picture experience of all three separate musicians of the Trio for 'Who Did You Think I Was', and another feature called slow dancing on mulholland drive, although I haven't got around to taking a look at this yet.

All in all, if you want to see and hear musicianship how it should be from an artist of today's modern music scene, then this really is for you, and I very much recommend listening to John Mayer's back-catalogue... I think you will be pleasantly surprised, there will undoubtedly be a song that particularly reaches out to you.

Hope this helps :)
