Ever since the live album was announced I have waited with much anticipation for it. Now that I finally got it I just want to say that this double cd/dvd is incredible. A great compilation of songs old and new and they played so well that night, the sound crystal clear and more powerful than the studio versions, Tarja can pull off every note live flawlessly and better yet her Finnish accent comes out much more in the live performance making it slightly different and in my opinion more personal to her. The songs themselves are generally replicated very well though several have been slightly altered/extended, 'ever dream' for example has a very haunting extension of the piano introduction and is slowed down while 'nemo' for example is a lot heavier and a few of the musical interludes have also been extended. The dvd is also incredible, the visual quality is terrific and the band members are all hugely dynamic and lots of stage affects going on like flames and confetti so it is quite a sight. I was lucky enough to see their last performance with Tarja in England ever, for all those who never saw them live prior to this, it is the closest you will get. Not just any live album with imperfect versions of studio songs with dodgy vocals (coughoasiscough), after Greenday's 'Bullet In A Bible' this is the best live album I have ever heard.

This is a must buy if you are a fan of Nightwish. This is the complete final concert to feature Tarja as the singer (the band fired her after this tour). Some bands disappoint with their live performances, Nightwish never do, their enthusiasm and passion for the music really comes through.

The sound quality is fantastic with the mix on some of the songs, such as Siren, sounding better than on the `Once' album. There is a good range of songs, although there is a leaning towards the Once album, their most recent album at this time - but this is no bad thing as Once is arguably Nightwish's best album.

Stand out songs for me are the beautiful live versions of Siren, Phantom of the Opera and the sublime Sleeping Sun.

This set also includes the DVD of the concert which has an interesting documentary showing the band on tour. The music quality is excellent as you would expect, but it is a very poorly filmed concert with lots of faraway shots of the stage and irritating zooming in and out in time to the drum (especially during Wish I Had An Angel). That said it is still a fantastic concert and the only way to see the band and Tarja doing what they did best. Well worth the money.

I'm a late comer to Nightwish, I came across them through their song based on Dee Brown's book, Creek Mary's Blood. However, this release is excellent value. A great performance on DVD and you get the audio CDs as well.

Nightwish's combination of rock, opera and orchestration - obviously inspired by film scores - is an exciting mix. But its the vocals of Tarja, who was asked to leave after this show by all accounts - that makes Nightwish special. Plenty has been said about her departure and having heard the new singer, Nightwish are now just another rock band. Like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, how long will it be before they realise that they've lost that magic ingredient and get Tarja back? Roll on the reunion!

This show has a lot of energy and their songs take on an even more powerful dynamic live. Highlights include the aforementioned Creek Mary's Blood, with a spooky spoken word part from Lakota native John Two-Hawks, Bless the Child, the epic Ghost Love Score, and brilliant Ever Dream. My only criticism, and its not just Nightwish who do this, why cover others artists' work? Their rendition of Gary Moore's Over the Hills and Far Away is quite good, mainly because its swept along by the concert's atmosphere, but their guitarist, plainly a good player, doesn't seem to be comfortable with Moore's licks and hooks. If I want to hear Gary Moore, I'll put on the Irish guitarist, and I'm sure Nightwish have others songs in their catalogue they could have performerd - The Carpenter perhaps? And we get Highest Hopes too, which again, is a Dave Gilmour composition, fairly good, but then i was never into Pink Floyd.

This is a brilliant DVD.

This is of Nightwish's last tour with Tarja. It's actually the bands last gig together, and although the band knew this, Tarja, of course, did not.
As soon as the gig ended, the band handed Tarja a letter asking her to leave.
You can see in Tuomas' face that something is wrong, but he, and the rest of the band, really are playing as if it's their last gig together.
The energy is fantastic.

A great set list, and a guest apperance from John Two Hawks.

It always makes me a little sad to watch this knowing Tarja was leaving.
The documentary is very good and the band really let you in. It's pretty long!
You can really tell things aren't right with the band and i think it's very brave of them to let you see this.

Really is a must for any Nightwish Fan.
