Having attended the concert, I was keen to get the DVD as a momento of the show, and it provides a good representation of what happened on the night. Overall a great gig, with Gary Moore, Joe Walsh and Dave Gilmour providing the showcase performances that befit the type of event this was intended to be.
There are numerous questions to ask, however:-
Why Jamie Cullum and Ami Winehouse were included on the bill I'll never know, especially the latter, who was given far more time to bore the audience with her dreadful performance than Gary Moore, who set the place alight with his one song (Red House). Gary should have had far more time ... he opitomised the sort of dynamic, exciting guitar playing that the audience came expecting to see.
Why was Paul Rogers, as great a singer as he is, allowed to drag his kids on stage to bore the audience with some of their own (poor) material ..what have they done to contribute to the esteemed history of the Strat?
Why did Brian May revert to his own guitar instead of sticking to the Strat, bearing in mind the show was a celebration of the Strat after all!!?? A bit of an insult in my opinion.
Why did Jeff Beck not turn up? Many people, including myself, bought tickets on the promise he would be playing.
Overall, buy the DVD for the great performances, which thankfully outnumber the duff moments.
