"We're not obsessive at all!" claims one member of the audience at this New Year's Eve gig, the sarcasm of her words evident by the fact that she is clad from head to toe in Manic Street Preacher-styled glam-rock nightwear. In truth, it's difficult to think of many bands whose fans are quite as devoted as those of the Manics. Certainly any MSP follower worth their salt would have been at Cardiff's Millennium on December 31, 1999 for a gig that not only celebrated the dawning of a new era but also a decade of Preaching which has seen the band overcome the disappearance of guitarist/lyricist Richey Edwards to become one of the country's most beloved acts. Nor did James Dean Bradfield & Co. disappoint as they tore through a set ranging from early tracks like "Motown Junk" and "You Love Us" to more recent crowd-pleasers such as "Everything Must Go". --Clark Collis On the DVD: Stacked to its heavily mascara-ed gills with extras the DVD also includes a brace of bonus tracks, discography, photo gallery and a series of interviews in which, among other things, bassist Nicky Wire reveals that they once wanted to release a record covered with sandpaper "so that when it was in the rack with all the other records it would destroy them." --Clark Collis

5.0 out of 5 stars live ! this is how it should be done ! 23 Sep 2002
I was VERY VERY fortunate to have been there that night and was truly one of the best gigs I have ever been to - the crowd was awesome, the Richy clones were surreal and the band was superbly contradictory as ever ! there was no camping up of the Millenium midnight just a short break in what was a tremendously powerful and hugely energetic gig, knocking out a battery of songs as if their lives depended on it !
As for the DVD its a brilliant capture of the band, the audience and the whole vibe of one huge party, this gig was broadcast on BBC shortly after the event but was mediocre by comparisn. There's fast edits close ups and movement that really drive the whole pace. Even the extras are worth a look but nothing can touch the gig !
This is one DVD that live music fans must have - the sound is superb and the presentation first rate - my favourite music DVD !

5.0 out of 5 stars re-living millenium night 27 Nov 2002
For those of us who weren't that fortunate or lucky to be in Cardiff to witness the Manic Street Preachers millenium concert, this DVD is a wish come true. You will throughly enjoy every live song such as If you Tolerate this then your children will be next, The Masses against the Classes (both reached number one in the chart)to James Dean Bradfields unique opener of Motown Junk comprising of the intro to Motown classic baby-love and Guns n Roses Sweet child of mind opening riff!! This is a must have... for any Manics fan out there!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what DVD was invented for 19 July 2000
Ok if you want the music review then check out the video reviews!
This has to be the best quality (SOUND) music DVD I have seen and heard. If you listen using the TV speaker then get a life (Decent AMP). Picture quality is of the highest quality and also 2 extra videos that will appeal to fans the interview section is a little silly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Champion 13 Jan 2002
By Vicky
Format:VHS Tape
I think one of the best things about this video is that it proves the Manics' strength and actual talent at their biggest gig of the time, without their fourth member. Yes, there are songs cut which one would really have liked to have seen, but the ones performed are done so with that exemplary performance so often seen from the Manics. "This one's for Albert Camus" heralds in Motorcycle Emptiness, which spirals into your heart like no other song, and provides one of my favourite links, into No Surface All Feeling, performed with true emotion to a backdrop of flames.
While there are tracks such as Yes and Stay Beautiful ommitted, you do get to hear (and watch - just as important!) songs like Faster, Roses In The Hospital and La Tristesse Durera. It's important to bear in mind that this WAS an Everything Must Go tour, so it is likely that there'd be more EMG songs than others. And of those which are, Everything Must Go itself, Kevin Carter and Australia are all the incendiaries you could want, along with the beautiful Small Black Flowers, and the raising A Design For Life, possibly the best song anyone has ever written.
I'd say the most beautiful moment was simply James Dean Bradfield dedicating a lovely This Is Yesterday to Richey's parents and sister. This Is Yesterday is one of my favourite Manics songs, and this would really show you why.
With all the ommissions from The Holy Bible etc, we are treated to Motown Junk. Yeah! Rawk!
And of course, the Manics end in true RAAAAH style (eloquent, I know) by launching into You Love Us after Design, performed in front of captures from early videos and live performances.
I don't normally like remixes, but even the Chemical Brothers' remix of Faster is ace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unquestionably the best band in the world. 14 April 2001
By A Customer
I would have given my right arm to been there on New Year's Eve. This is the closest I'll get. It is absolutely fantastic. The video includes the whole performance and what a performance it is. Songs old and new are included, from their greatest song Faster to all of their other great songs like A Design For Life and Motorcycle Emptiness. This was a once in a lifetime performance and you would be stupid to pass up a chance to own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty damn worth it 9 Oct 2000
By A Customer
If you think the sound quality is bad on this, then quite simply you are talking out of your lower portal. The sound quality is fantastic, the camera shots are amazing and this is an excellent gig video.
It has some of the Manics' more popular stuff and also introduces you to some of their little-known tracks.
I cant say the DVD extras were particularly fantastic but the extra 5 quid or so is worth it for the benefits DVD provides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manics rock into the New Millenium! 9 April 2009
Manic Street Preachers enter the new Millenium with a bang with this smashing DVD!

When I sat watching this live concert I thought 'too bad I was 12 years old' when this gig was going on and I didn't know about it. I just knew of the band but didn't realize how much of an impact they'd have on me later in life. Do you remember where you were on the eve of the new Millenium?

Going back to the DVD. The Manics were at the height of their career. Kicking the gig off with 'You Stole The Sun From My Heart' with a superb audience that were singing their hearts out. The tracklisting is superb and Manic fans can't complain. Songs featured from five of there studio albums (Remember at that time only five albums were recorded). So there is something there for everyone! Personally I enjoyed hearing tracks from The Holy Bible and the superb 'Motown Junk'

This is a must for any Manic fan or if you love the hits this DVD is superb.
