The ever -popular Peter Kay returns with a special edition DVD of his 'Mum wants a new Bungalow' tour. This new DVD features the show as filmed at the Manchester Arena (instead of Bolton Albert Halls) and includes the smash hit 'Show me the way to Amarillo'.
Peter Kay has rightly earned himself a reputation as one of the countrys finest comedians, mixing in wry observations, northern humour and good, old-fashioned joke-telling at its finest. And yet even the most ardent Kay-fan, including this reviewer, would have to concede that this DVD release of Peter Kay--Live At Manchester Arena is a misstep.
Its not that the material here isnt funny, as frequently it is. Kays observations on the likes of Crimewatch, Bullseye, the daft things that people say and weddings hit home with resounding accuracy. Yet all this has been delivered before on a far better DVD. His Live At The Bolton Albert Halls disc, released two years prior to this one, is a taping made on exactly the same tour, and as a result, the material across the two discs is virtually identical. Furthermore, the show on this latest release is cut down to a dramatically shorter length. Save for a strong DVD extra that takes you behind the scenes of his tour, theres simply no reason that anyone who bought the previous release should fork out for this one.
Kays talents are undisputed, and the aforementioned Live At The Bolton Albert Halls DVD is a must-have for fans of strong stand-up comedy. But you really should give Live At The Manchester Arena a miss, and treat is as the unwelcome cash cow it clearly is.--Simon Brew

If you already have Live at the Bolton Albert Halls then there's no point in duplicating what you already have, except for the "show me the way to Amarillo" insert which I believe is the only difference that sets it apart from the other.
It's just another ploy by the record company to get you to buy it again by wrapping it under a different title.
Don't bother! Unless you don't have the Bolton DVD!!
Very disappointed to have parted with my hard earned cash for nothing. Tell as many people as you can.
Please Please Please buy another stand up DVD, like Jommy Carr Live or something.
VERY disappointing that only 47 minutes of the show is here - WHY cut stuff out??? Will never understand that with stand-up shows. If I buy a live show on DVD then I expect to GET the entire show - not severely edited "highlights" - the bits they do include are often not even the funniest bits from the show.
That aside, the 50 or so minute Tour Documentary is simply excellent and goes some way to making up for the disappointment of the actual show itself.
All in all, I would have LOVED to see a more in-depth collection of footage from the entire tour - would have been a lot more interesting than the 50% of the Manchester show you do get.
Why then has he produced an exact repeat of his live 'My mum wants a Bungalow Tour'? I rented this DVD expecting to hear new material, new tag lines, and have a fresh burst of laughter from Mr Kay. Sadly, I was left feeling somewhat cheated. Just glad I didn't actually 'purchase' the DVD, byt both my wife and I agreed afterwards that the DVD publishing firm or Peter Kay himself are going to be leaving some fans feeling a bit cheated and let down.
My advice is to rent it, or to simply buy the Bolton Hall DVD; excatly the same matieral, just a different wrapper.
I bought my copy (as I am sure many did) based on the fact that the cover said “Live at Manchester Arena”, knowing that I already owned a DVD titled “Live at the Bolton Albert Hall”. I do not think that based on the titles it was unreasonable to assume that these would be two independent routines.
For example if I buy Jack Dee Live at the Apollo, I would assume that it would contain different material to say Jack Dee Live at the Duke of Yorks. Similarly I would expect Billy Connolly Live At The Royal Albert Hall to be a different show to Billy Connolly - Live In New York, To put out two DVDs of the same routine did leave me feeling as if I had been “caught out by the small print” which is not a nice thing to do to a fan.
But what left me feeling even more conned was the fact that we only got 47 minutes of the routine. After all the Bolton version does go on for 84 minutes, so what is the point in releasing a second version of a routine that actually contains less material than the original.
So all in all, still funny stuff, but a waste of money if you already have the Bolton DVD.
