4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 19 July 2009
I love Keane a lot, and I feel this DVD gives and interesting insight into what touring was like for them. It also helps us to understand why the band began to feel the pressures which eventually led to them taking an unscheduled break in 2006 - Tim Rice-Oxley is shown trying to write in the back of the tourbus.
The live performances are, as ever, wonderful. Keane are and always will be amazing live because of the sheer genius but simplicity of their music and their talent for it. Tom Chaplin's voice, while much improved today, still makes each and every song perfect.

I love how Astrid and Sam's relationship blossoms throughout the book, and how Quinn and Sam grow slowly apart due… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 14 April 2009
I may be echoing what has already been said, but...
I love this DVD! Keane is my favourite band, and many people from the official forums recommended it to me. I was not dissapointed - Tom Chaplin sounded amazing, even after 21 songs. The best performances of the DVD are Everybody's Changing, Somewhere Only We Know, This Is The Last Time and Bedshaped. Although, seeing these are possibly their four best songs, it's no surprise.
They also brought songs like Leaving So Soon (the should-be single), Broken Toy and Can't Stop Now out of the woodwork. They even (somehow) managed to make the acoustic b-stage bit feel very intimate and personal, despite the huge crowd ('the biggest crowd… Read more
