I am a Steve Hackett fan for almost fourty years so I owned already the cd and the dvd version of this concert. I was happy with the sound of the cd but in my opinion the sound and picture quality of the dvd is not what it could be. I looks like a transfer from a vhs tape to the (then new) dvd format. I was very disapointed that the quality of the dvd in this edition is just the same as the old one. I can imagine that it's not cheap to remaster a dvd (sound and picture) but this is really a missed chance. Then why the four stars then? Well, the (double) cd has been remastered and although the original was already very good, this remastered version has much improved sound quality. the sound is ritcher and more detailed and therefore more enjoyable. So if you care about good sound quality this could be a nice buy. A big thank you to Ben Fenner, the remastering engineer. And the Music? Well if you read this you already know the music I think...

This work is very good. There is the presence of excellent and inspired musicians such as John Weaton and Steve Hackett, and battery strong and convincing Chester Thompson. There are songs from the time of Genesis, King Crimson and Asia, in addition to solo Hackett. This show held in 2000 deserves all the applause, both on CD and video and this version includes all this. Who monitors and is a fan of Steve Hackett can not have and those who appreciate good music is a great option. Excellent! Note 9.5.
