HASH(0x8a37ed08) out of 5 stars 5 star review from someone who has watched it!! 2 Sept. 2009
By Richardson - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Just finished this..and its a good size meal, over 2 hours!! So many "concert" DVDs end up being truncated highlight affairs so this is a breath of fresh air. It was a pretty magical night and the boys traced much of their "Tap" history as well as "Mighty Wind" era in good voice and instrumentation but more than that in good spirit and a bassfull of humor! Over the course of 35 chapters they cover every quality tune from their catalog and rarely falter and the film itself is sharp , well directed and the sound is jumping out at me. The venue is beautiful and there is just enough audience interaction to give the feeling of being part of this wonderful event.

I can not recommend this strongly enough...the mix of music, humor and good cheer is such a pleasure. The BEST thing I can ever say about a concert film/DVD is that it makes me kick myself for passing on the show when it came through town and I certainly do. I've seen both Spinal Tap and the full Mighty Wind concerts (one of the few benefits of being near Los Angeles) and figured this wouldn't measure up....well I was wrong ...this DVD will be enjoyed for years!!

HASH(0x8a34c2dc) out of 5 stars This DVD Goes To Eleven 30 Nov. 2009

I've always been a fan of Tap and Mighty Wind. As a singer/songwriter myself, I admire a good song no matter what the genre. And I admire showmanship. The effortless ease and good humor with which McKean, Shearer and Guest present their songs (with worthy additions from others) make for a rich listening and viewing experience. They may have skimped on the costumes and wigs, but they are plugged in in a big way! I highly recommend this DVD to anyone. It's fun for the whole family!

I'm a big fan of all things Spinal Tap and Christopher Guest so it is great to hear the guys in this type of setting doing all of their songs unplugged. What I didn't expect was how good they sound both vocally and instrumentally. They've grown some serious chops over the years.

Hearing the old classics, some of wholich in a new light, mixed with comedy and crowd interaction makes this a great purchase for any fan of the Christopher Guest movies.

HASH(0x8c5e85d0) out of 5 stars Love these guys 5 Aug. 2010
By R. Williams - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of these guys. I have really enjoyed their videos, "This is Spinal Tap", "Waiting on Guffman", "A Mighty Wind", and "Best in Show". These are some truly amazing talented individuals. You can see in this video, which is recorded at one of their Unwigged and Unplugged concerts, what a cult following they have. I felt like I had the best seat in the audience as they did all the favorite songs for everyone. The acappella song done at the beginning and end of the DVD showcases some of their great talent. I highly recommend this DVD. If you were not a fan before, you will become one after watching this.
