Welcome back again,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Emerson, Lake & Palmer - 40th Anniversary Reunion Concert, High Voltage Festival, 25th july 2010 [DVD] (DVD)
At long last, a full length concert release.
Been an ELP fan since they started and seen them perform many times over the years. The quality of their shows has varied as with any live band but the one thing ELP always gave was 100%. This performance is no exception. I was there and it was a special moment. To reflect a 40 year career in a 90 minute set was no mean feat but they did it in some style.
I have seen various critisisms about the bands performance but hey, these guys are in their 60s now so give them some respect for getting up there and doing their thing. They gave their fans a 40th anniversary concert to remember and the bonus was that it took place here in the UK.
As for the complaints about the sound quality, this was an outdoor show so it was never going to be perfect. Anyone wanting precise HiFi sound should have stayed at home and listened to a CD.
For me there is nothing better than watching a band perform live and this was an excellent example. If, as we are led to believe, this was their final performance together then what a way to go.
I have great memories of that weekend and having the whole concert on DVD now means that the memories will not fade as I can re-visit it whenever I choose.
Thanks very much guys
