This is a must-have for any Alter Bridge fan. It's MILES better than Live In Amsterdam and features some incredible playing by Mark Tremonti. The thing that REALLY stands out with this DVD is the quality - Blu Ray HD at it's very best. This is a gig to watch over and over again. The sound quality is fantastic, the band are out of this world and it's got to be one of the best DVDs that I own. If you are hesitating about getting this, hesitate no longer - buy it! I didn't really get into AB III until after I'd watched this and then I understood the dynamics of the guitar playing a whole lot more. It's an awesome product and I would highly recommend it.

Not only is this Alter Bridge's best performance to be captured on film, it is also the most visually impressive. The songs are pitch perfect with stunning picture quality. Thankfully there is also plenty of value for money here with 21 songs and a CD of the performance. It was a pleasure to be there on the night and a must have for any AB or rock fan.

The Band Alter Bridge were a group of individuals I knew nothing about other than the adverts that I spotted in a couple of music magazines attempting to get you to buy "One Day Remains". This is a thing I very rarely if ever buckle to. I like to hear a bit of something of the band before I stick my hand in my pocket to hand over hard earned cash. For some unknown reason, I took the plunge with Alter Bridge and for another unknown reason, I discovered probably the best album I had heard for a considerable amount of time, years. No fillers, no time wasting, just a complete in your face diamond. So unsure was I over my reaction, I passed on my album to me eldest son and waited for the knock back. It never arrived. Like wild fire the album took off with all of my family and thence progressed to their friends and the "Alter Bridge" phenomena had started.
I have since followed with great interest, nay, dedicated addiction to a superb line up that are stunning on record and if possible even better live. I had the greatest of nights seeing them on the AB 3 tour. Yes, due to working commitments it took that amount to allow me to catch up with them for the live experience.
This album shows all the best elements of ability, technical and feeling that the band have to offer. From the start of "Slip To The Void" all the way through to "Rise Today", not forgetting "Blackbird", "Metalingus" et all they are simply stunning. Don't delay, buy the expanded copy with the extra DVD that shows how close they are to the fans that in their words" put them where they are".
The DVD shows first hand just how good they are, when I saw them there were no pyrotechnics, just simple light changes. The pyros don't detract anything from the songs, just give them an extra edge and complimentary visual. Loads of close work and wide angles just the way it should be done.
This is a band that have worked very hard with little or no radio or TV exposure. Just hard work and a total belief that the music they were producing was worthwhile getting out to the punters like you and me. Their hard graft has paid off in bundles. I refuse to single out any one member of a complete entity it's not fair. Bung their music into your machine and crank it up a bit. Music as it should be. Sooooperb.

I came to Alter Bridge through Myles Kennedy's performance on Slash's latest CD Apocalyptic Love Sometimes live recordings miss the atmosphere but this album does not and really puts you in front of the stage for what is an awesome concert.

This album comes with 2 DVD's, not Blu-ray. They play fine on my normal DVD player and I would probably have paid the money for either the CD or DVD's, to get both included makes this a really good purchase.

Myles has a tremendous rock voice, it is powerful but he always keeps it in focus and I never heard it break in the whole concert. The band are all very talented musicians in their own right and fans will enjoy this on many levels and from the perspective of not only Myles but the other guys too.

With the band embarking on their first ever arena tour, what a better way to remember it than with this amazing live recording. The blu-ray is great with top class high definition visuals and 5.1 surround sound, it makes this blu-ray a must own for any Alter Bridge fan. It comes with a great in depth documentary with interviews each band member (I'm in it!! woop!) and the bonus of the whole gig on CD. Can't fault it in any way, a big step up in quality from their Live in Amsterdam blu-ray. Can't wait to see them again this year with their next album, hopefully there is another blu-ray planned somewhere down the line for that.

This Blu-ray concert really raises the bar and sets a new standard which I hope others will match. The picture is razor sharp but it is the audio that truly shines. Play this in 5.1 surround sound and you will not be disappointed. I wish the recent `Big 4' Blu-ray could match it for sound quality.

As for the performance, it's good but it's only really Miles and Mark putting effort in. Miles is constantly trying to get the crowd going and the shot of every single person in Wembley waving along is quite impressive. Mark is head banging and pulling all the appropriate lead guitar faces. They both look like they are really enjoying the show but the drummer and bass player are there, but that's about all you can say for them. There's not that much in the way of a stage show, a few lasers and a bit of pyro is all you get but the show works quite well and grows as the concert go's on. The quality of the music is what makes or breaks a concert and its all good in that respect.

If you're an Alter Bridge fan then this is an absolute must, especially if you have 5.1 audio. The low price for a quality Blu-ray with a free CD of the concert makes this a great starting point for people new to Alter Bridge as well. Again, I hope other bands take note, if you deliver such value for money then people will buy your product.

One of my favourite bands. Never actually got to see this gig live but now I can get the next best thing and watch it back again and again on my TV. Cracking price for what you get and it came with the the MP3 album so during that time of waiting for it to arrive I could still enjoy the music, although it wasn't much of a wait as I have Amazon Prime and it was here the next day. My only complaint was the packaging seemed a little excessive, would have been an awful lot of waste if I hadn't put it to better use.

First I'd like to say kudos to Amazon for shipping this DVD so fast, I live in Paris and I got it 2 days after its release, great job guys!

As for the DVD: it's all in the title.
I didn't think AB could top their Amsterdam performance but in my opinion they did. All of the classics are there plus 7 songs from AB III; the energy the band put in their performance is amazing and the fan response is even better, the mosh pits are awesome!! You can tell playing at Wembley was really a dream come true for them (plus the fact that Myles can't stop smiling and laughing says it all)

Highlight of the concert in my opinion: The breathtaking wonderful life/watch over you combination (that you can listen to over and over again thanks to the Audio CD included in the package).

Overall an amazing package that YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO BUY!!

I've been an Alter Bridge fan since their formation and I can honestly say that they are just getting better and better. Myles sounds great on this and personally I believe that they are one of the most consistent bands out there, all of their albums so far have been incredible and they can follow it up live. I recommend this DVD to everybody!! A perfect performance recorded in brilliant quality.
