This DVD is obviously made of professionals. The DVD's quality is high in every way. I really enjoy watching it. McFly are such a great live performers - they really know how to entertain people. Also their videos are great!

The DVD contains load of fun stuff. A whole gig, all their videos, a documentary and more!

Great DVD and really talented lads! Highly recommended!

If This was six years ago and you said McFly, I would have said All about you, and urh. Now putting aside the boyband tag a tag I do find hard to understand, were the Beatles a boyband, or The Jam Stones, no I don't think they were. McFly came along at a time when teenagers wanted a little more creditability from there bands. At the time we were board with all the rubbish boy singing groups jumping on the bandwagon of Take That. However McFly were not manufactured, Tom and Danny met had a mutual interest in writing songs and then recruited Bass Play Douggie and Drummer Harry. This was realised by Island records after the band left for their own label, and was not the groups idea. I bought this after loving Above the noise and I was not disappointed, the DVD is packed with a full concert, all the singles up to 2007 a behind the scenes tour and two live performances from Manchester, and all in DTS!.However I would say the concert for Radioactive is better in every way sound quality,song selection and even though this is DTS, something is missing from the concert sound. I was surprised however how many songs I had missed like my Heart never lies and Transylvania two of my favourites, and a great cover of the Who's Pinball wizard.Don't dismiss this group thinking they are just for teenage girls they are not much different to all bands that start out, but McFly deserve to be around for a long time, and if the next album is of the standard of this they will. PS Going to the up close a personal concert and looking forward to it a lot

If there's one thing that's made McFly last as long as they have done for the past 5 years, it's the fact that they pull out pretty much all the stops when it comes to playing live and touring, which is illustrated perfectly on this DVD which accompanied the top 5 album of the same name.

Filmed last September at Wolverhampton Civic Hall, whilst their "Greatest Hits" show may lack some of the pyromaniac pizazz that their arena tours usually have - i.e. big video screens and a little podium for Harry's drums to levitate about on - this is an enjoyable, intimate and engaging set that shows off not only their performing prowess but also the funny, often heartwarming crowd interaction - particularly on performances of tracks like "Obviously", "Friday Night", "Transylvania" and "All About You".

Also included on the DVD is a short montage of clips from their hit MTV documentary series "Up Close and Personal", showing amusing moments such as Tom disecting individual members' taste in clothing, Danny "poking his head out" to an extremely overexcited audience, Harry showing us their "view" from their dressing room, and the band doing a vocal warm up via a rendition of their long lost support act V's "Blood, Sweat and Tears", and there's also rather handily all of their videos from "5 Colours In Her Hair" to "The Heart Never Lies" included here too.

Even if you're not a hardcore fan, but perhaps just like a few of their songs, for the price and what you get on here it's definitely worth investigation, and perfect viewing for a night in.

I have been to all 3 McFly concerts, at the big arenas, and loved them all, and loved the DVD's too. The problem with this one, is being shot in a smaller venue it missed a lot of the OOMPH you get with the arena. I love the band, but whoever edited this DVD did it to the max! It's even missing the Movie intro vid, and Harry's dance vid from in the middle! All in all, could be better, not due to the bands fault, but to those techs who messed around too much!

Filled with a full live show from 2007 along with all their music videos up to then, this really has McFly's greatest hits spread across this. (Again up until 2007) and with the addition of "The Heart Never Lies" having been released just before the show. As-well as their cover of the famous Queen song "Don't Stop Me Now" This will keep all McFly fans entertained either way :)

Having been at the gig in Wolverhampton that this was filmed at it saddens me that a lot of the dialogue between the band and fans has been cut
The atmosphere isn't captured aswell as it was either but that's expected
All in all the lads are great live performers and this obviously wasn't going to be as spectacular as the previous 2 live Dvds [filmed in Manchester and Wembley] being as it was in a theatre rather than a large arena
Kudos to them and looking forward to the next tour and hopefully dvd
