A Real Diamond.
on 4 July 2012
Been waiting a long time for this DVD,and believe me the wait was worth it.This is yet another polished and professional performance from Duran Duran,all the classic hits are there(well most of them)plus the strongest tracks from the All You Need Is Now album.Making its DVD debut this time out is their cover version of White Lines,which they knock clean out of the park,Im not really a fan of covers,but they really do own this one.Dom Brown has now truly found his place within the band,and knows how to contribute to the Duran sound perfectly,while bringing his own style in as well.
Technically the DVD doesnt put a foot out of place,the picture is sharp and crisp,the editing,if a little frantic in places,ensures you see everything you need to,and the sound quality is excellent from start to finish.If I had to find fault with this DVD its that all the new material is clumped together at the start of the concert,it might have been better if it had been spread out a bit more,Girl Panic could easily close the show in my oppinion,but then again you cant have a Duran concert that isnt closed by Rio.
The behind the scenes documentary is okay,pretty open and honest about things,a little predictable but interesting none the less.You also get Is There Something I Should Know and Come Undone as bonus tracks,as always though they would have been better included in the actual show than served up seperately.
Playing live is what Duran Duran have always done best,and this DVD showcases this perfectly for me,and is up there with the Live From London show.As a die hard fan all I can say is its worth every penny.
