Awesome meat loaf concert with a twist...,
This review is from: Live In Australia With The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra [DVD]  (DVD)
I only discovered this DVD a few months back , after getting into meat loaf more in depth , as I really liked the "Heaven and hell" CD with Bonnie Tyer so I know most of Meats best songs or so I thought anyway.
Well this DVD just blew me away, the orchestra perfectly compliments the songs which i didnt think would work, meat sings all the best hits from the bat trilogy of Albums, and the Band are excellent, along with Patti Russo and CC on backing vocals , the whole thing is just so well glued together. You can play the concert through and each time find that a lesser known song you weren't as keen on has grown on you and have a new favourite. Although all are great , I can watch this repeatedly and still enjoy it, and pick up on a part that I'd missed previously, although this was filmed in 2004, around 8 years ago now, meat shows no sign of all the various health problems He's suffered in recent times and really powers his way through the songs. and there's no shortage of hot women dancers either between songs just to keep your attention!
If you're interested in this DVD there is also a Cd available as well, some rare versions of the cd feature a bonus DVD with bonus videos and tour photos - this is also a great package if you can get it.
All in all a fantastic concert , and the orchestra adds a great twist to some fantastic rock songs, and has very quickly became one of my favourite music DVDs, well worth the price.
