One of the best live music DVDs ever....,
This review is from: Red Hot Chili Peppers: Off The Map [DVD]  (DVD)
First up for all those people mentioning the continuity problems on this DVD - it was filmed over two nights !
Anthony's hair changing, Chad's hat, John's pants, etc, etc, etc.
The footage was was taken from two concerts and the best bits were picked out and spliced together to create an absolutely amazing live music DVD.
That aside, let's get down to the performance itself.
Amazing. Astounding. Brilliant.
I've been to a great many Red Hot Chili Peppers concerts over the years in several different countries and even more cities, and since they toured the crap out of 'By The Way', their live performances have started to lose some of the frantic energy that us long time fans are used to. Let's be honest though, John aside, the rest of the guys are 40+ !!
Although I wasn't at this gig, it's one of the best shows I've seen them put on.
I think this performance catches them at the peak of their 'live' careers. They still have the energy to put on a great performance, and their catalogue of songs is excellent - picking the best of everything up to 'Californication'. My collection includes all the RHCP DVD's, and this one is far and away the best.
