This review is from: Peter Gabriel: Live In Athens 1987 [Blu-ray + Bonus DVD]  (Blu-ray)
After having the POV release for many years, and seeing the DVD I was looking forward to getting this wonderful concert in full HD. The 1987 fully restored footage is absolutely stunning, there is no other way to describe it. The 5.1 audio is also excellent.
Additionally it is great to see the entire concert which includes 'Intruder', 'The Family And The Fishing Net' and 'Here Comes The Flood'.
Some people complain about reissues and re-releases however when the quality is improved to such a standard it really is worth seeing. Pictures will be improved vastly again very shortly and we'll all be buying 4k TV's so I really don't see the problem with such releases. Anything that makes Peter Gabriel's thirtysomething face clearer to me is very welcome. I'm extremely happy with this release in this point in time, it is superior to other blu rays I have with more recent footage. Progression in technology should always be appreciated, I just wish that other releases of that period could be reissued to this standard, sadly however many companies claim they don't find this cost effective.
You also receive Play The Videos DVD with this release which is a great bonus. Other bonuses include Youssou N'Dour and Le Super Etoile De Dakar support set, a 1986 interview with Peter and the 'Sledgehammer' video with 5.1 audio.
The Blu Ray is region A,B and C and the DVD is region free 0.
