I had only seen clips from this concert and was delighted to see that both the CD and the DVD were available for less than £6 - what a bargain! The lighting, as has already been mentioned, is superb and the video is well edited to give the viewer a real sense of involvement. Mike Oldfield's stage presence is as commanding as it is irresistible and watching him play his guitar is definitely seeing the Master at work. Portsmouth may be as familiar as an old friend but every time I see or hear this concert my spine tingles when the first guitar chord is heard - it's thrilling, and I'm not given to hyperbole as a rule. Miriam Stockley singing Moonlight Shadow is a treat, she has such a pure and sweet voice, ideal for this song. I've played this concert over and over again since I bought it because it's such feel-good, exhilarating viewing/listening. If you can spare £6, this would be a wise investment in these troubled times - we all need all the feel-good factors we can get!! You won't regret your purchase. Sit back, marvel at the musicianship, and enjoy :)

I recently bought this CD/DVD set and I'm very impressed with the entertainment and value for money it offers. I have played the DVD through a Blu ray player onto a big HD screen as well as watching it close-up on a lap top; the picture looks good on both. Sound is available in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround or Linear PCM stereo, with surround sound reproducing the noise of the many fireworks to great effect!

The concert was recorded outdoors in a freezing Berlin just before midnight on the last day of 1999 and in conjunction with that city's 'Art in Heaven' lighting display (which appears as a bonus track on the DVD). The musician's and singer's performances are all of a high standard, especially considering the weather conditions that night. The only miming I could detect was to pre-recorded spoken sections on 'Sunlight' and 'Liberation' (spoken, I believe, by Mike's daughter) which certainly did not spoil the performance for me. Seven of the tracks are from Mike's 'The Millennium Bell' album preceeded by five old favourites so most of his supporters should find something to enjoy in this selection.

I really enjoyed watching and listening to this lively and unique concert and if you liked Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells III World Premiere on CD or DVD, I'm certain you will enjoy this concert as well. Thoroughly recommended.

Contains CD and DVD of Mike Oldfield perfoming his music in Berlin on Millenium Eve, together with DVD version of the "Art in Heaven" concert which he participated in.
Awesome musicianship from Mike and all the others.
A great introduction to his work and excellent value for money.

Bought for under £7 brand new. Sounds great and great addition to my Oldfield collection - DVD watched, yet to listen to CD. It raised an alert to arise on my laptop about the region however, which confused me.
