Received my Blu Ray last week and waited till the weekend to watch it, The wife and i are big Take That fans only recently becoming fans as we're in our 30's and really didn't like them the first time around. I have to say this is possibly the best concert release i've ever seen. Technically and musically. I never see them live on this tour but now wish i had. It's pure entertainment from beginning to end. Its not just a concert its a huge show. with amazing dance routines from the performers. They get the old stuff out the way at the beginning, bringing it up to date too. The show seems to just get better and better.Another thing is the editing of the show, For once its not too choppy with cuts every couple of seconds which i've noticed on the last 2 Take That releases, which makes for an enjoyable experience. This Blu Ray has one of the best quality picture i have seen. if you was there you will certainly find yourself amongst the crowd. even at long distance. Sound quality is top notch too with a DTS HD MA track which is like being there. a standard Dolby 5.1 and PCM 2.0 is included also which was nice. A good bonus was the Abbey Road recording of 11 songs from the last 2 albums. very much keeping in tune with the recent channel 4 series Abbey Road, The guys all remain seated and are accompanied by an orchestra. Songs are toned down a bit to fit the ambience. All in all i can't recommend this Blu Ray enough, I just wish i had been there. One thing i wished for was more extras, maybe a doc on the making of the production. If you like Take That then your mad not to get this.
