Gary Moore-Live at Montreux 2010
Great sound and Moore/s last concert before his untimely passing

Status Quo-Pictures (live at Montreux 2009)
the old guys still have it in them

The Rolling Stones-Some Girls
the Stones, a stage and an audience what else can you need?

I am looking to start a library of concert video’s on Blu-ray that are…

1 Great Performances
2 Excellent Sound
3 Excellent Video Quality

Where do I start?



Based on your criteria, Lady GaGa The Monster Ball. What concert blu rays should be.

Disappointing in the audio department (which makes for disappointing all around) is The Big Four (Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth), especially when compared to Metallica The Black Album on DVD-Audio (which was awesome).

I'd highly recommend John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and Friends – 70th Birthday Concert. Great playing, Clapton sits in, and Mayall's band is hot.

I also really enjoyed Cream Royal Albert Hall, London May 2005 on Blu-ray.

Yes – Live at Montreux on Blu-ray is well-shot, but the band is not operating at 1970s levels anymore. Still nice to see them up close on stage.

I think Linkin Park Live in Texas can be bought on BluRay. Best gig ever!

I have about 30 or so concert bluray and the only two that I see and hear that stand at the top are:
Jeff Beck(Live at Ronnie Scott's)
Eagles(Farewell I Tour,live in Melbourne)
The rest were okay to good,but these two stand out,especially with a ten foot screen and in house power to almost take you there.
I should add for Jeff Beck,if your sub can handle it,Vinnie's kit should sound like you are there as the audio is superb.
I found the bottom end sucked when I tried the disc with two JL F-113's(which I sold)actually four as I stumbled onto the 1812 which basically takes you to the venue,pretty incredible as I didn't know what I was missing until I got to audition one in store and free home audition :D.

Just watched Dido live at Brixton Academy. Brilliant concert! Wonderful surround work and top notch musicianship to drive it. Once things warm up, I prefer this concert's version of several of her hits.

If you like her music this concert is a real treat.

I picked up Los Lobos Kiko live yesterday. They perform their seminal album Kiko in its entirety. Blu ray + CD package.
I will check it out on the weekend when no one is around :wink:

I watched they first 7 songs of this amazing concert performance by Los Lobos. They are an incredible band and you can see the synergy they have from being together for so long. They have a sweet rhythm that can escalate into a controlled frenzy of instruments and then come right down to a slow ballad flow.
They really remind me of the Grateful Dead in this way.
This Blu ray and CD combo is a must for any music lover. :D

The best one I own is Metallica - Francais pour une nuit.

Amazing video, great sound. Much better than the "Big 4" bluray mentioned above. Such a cool location for a concert.

Three great blu ray concerts that hit the mark for all prefomance, audio, and video quality are:

Adele - Live at the Royal Albert Hall. Also comes with matching CD.

Grateful Dead - The Movie. (From 5 shows in 1974). This movie is a "Trip" in itself. 8)

The Band - The Last Waltz. (1976).

Both the Dead and The Band blu rays have exceptional audio tracks and very good video quality that was just film when shot.
Funny, both concerts were at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. 8)

8) Just got a couple Yes concerts on Bluray. The one in 2001 with a symphonic orchestra and another one Live in Montreux in 2003. Both excellent !
