Having seen the great TAAB shows in Gateshead and Amsterdam I was really looking forward to seeing this concert on DVD and I am equally impressed. The sound quality is excellent and the first part of the show (TAAB1) brings back great memories from the 70's.
As followers of Ian Anderson/Tull will appreciate, Ian's voice isn't what it was a few years ago but this does not detract from the quality of the show. To me, Ian's vocals are noticably better on the second part (TAAB2) and the excellent musicianship from each band member continues practically note perfect. A great live DVD. I just want Ian Anderson to go on and on......how about Homo Erraticus 2 followed up by a DVD similar to this one?

My first ever review on Amazon. I'm so impressed by this it had to be done. Ian Anderson and the tightest band you'll ever see or hear, perform the classic JethroTull Thick As A Brick plus Ian Anderson's TAAB2 in their entirety.

Not a bum note anywhere. Superb theatrics from IA and a few surprises along the way.

I have a s*** hot hifi and cinema system and many live concerts leave me unimpressed. Not this. Sound quality is stunning. As good as it gets. Trust me.

If you like Tull you just have to get this

Standard Definition in 2014 isn't acceptable. Even smart phones these days shoot HD. Why release a Blu-Ray that has only standard definition picture quality - soft and with interlacing comb effects on distant shots of movement? The concert itself is excellent, although I could have done without the "Dame Edna" corny audience interaction on prostate cancer, he embarrassingly amateur video footage and the drum solo. Fortunately the DTS 5.1 audio makes this worth purchasing - it's a superb recording of a great performance. Unlike others I didn't have a problem with Ian Anderson's vocal performance, but I felt the second singer added for the performance was too quiet in the mix and do got lost. I'd have preferred Anderson even if he hasn't got the vocal range he used to have.

Good to have both Thick As A Brick and Thick As A Brick 2 in full on one DVD (especially after attending this concert in the UK). Ian Anderson's voice has deteriorated somewhat since the original Thick As A brick but still a magical performer. Guaranteed to please his fans.

This is a very good deal-you get to hear two albums in their entirety for a low price! A lot of excellent music done live in concert. I don't miss Jethro Tull because he can do more diverse types of music.

TAAB is my all time favorite album by Jethro Tull. Great music and good performance, Ian Anderson's vocals needs a collaboration by an alter ego actor.This tour deserves an official release, it's a shame not including subtitles with songs lyrics and comedy gags. Martin Barre and other historic members would have become this anniversary unforgettable.

I have been following Jethro Tull/Ian Anderson for ages, the past couple of years have been quite amazing, especially remastering and plenty of box sets, Thick As A Brick box set, T.A.A.B 2 box set, "A Passion Play" 4 disc set, a couple of years ago add Aqualung
5 disc set, Ian's latest studio album, and now T.A.A.B. 1 & 2 in their entirety. By the looks of Ian Anderson has been quite a busy man.
I for one enjoy everything, to have the above 2 albums back to back must have been a hell of a lot of hard work. It's a great sounding concert with the usual silly things thrown in for good measure? I will let you decide, all in all a great concert, as we all perhaps know by now Ian's voice at times does struggle, so we have another singer who can sing Ian's difficult parts, with ease but i guess it's still
not quite the same. If you are a fan of either i would highly recommend the concert.
