    This DVD arrived this morning (lets hear it for my poor neighbour! :devil:)
    After the disappointment of the "Live & Dangerous" DVD I was hoping for something better & I got it - this is a great DVD - Gary Moore is the driving force here and opens with his own "Walking By Myself" but then introduces Brian Robertson who plays on "Don't Believe a Word" "Emerald" & "Still in Love With You" - Scott Gorham for "Black Rose" "Cowboy Song" & "The Boys Are Back In Town" - Eric Bell for "Whiskey in The Jar" - Gary M then closes the show with "Parisienne Walkways"
    So the set is great - The sound IMO is pretty good with choices of DD2.0 DD5.1 DTS
    I havent watched the "Extras" which consists of 25mins of interviews
    Possibly the best Lizzy show ever without Phil Lynott & a great reminder of what a talented singer, bass player & writer Phil was :smashin:

    Off to see Lizzy on Sunday night. Really looking forward to it and will pick this up in the next few days.

    Thanks.

    Pete.

    Just to correct myself Robbo doesn't play on "Dont Believe a Word"
    I have now watched the "Interviews" - nothing special but a few interesting snippets from Lizzy's turbulent career
    I'd still recommend the DVD! - Paul :smashin:

    A nice DVD, and a great set list, especially Black Rose, but I do have a number of negative points:-

    1. Considering what the gig was about, I was surprised GM never mentioned Phil Lynott's name.

    2. Robbo was on poor form, and slaughtered Emerald with bum notes (OK, I couldn't have done better, but he could).

    3. Eric Bell - good guitarist, iffy singer!

    4. Why no mention of John Sykes?

    Given the limited supply of Lizzy material, anything like this is a welcome bonus, and I'm not knocking it on the whole. We really could do with some quality live Lizzy on DVD, but perhaps it's just not out there - are you out there...?!!

    Simon - can't really argue with any of your points there but despite those faults still a great dvd especially soundwise - maybe one day L&D will make it to dvd (not the POS that came out recently which should come with its own bargepole!)

    Was that the one which came out on CD? Not a bad recording, that, and they played like they were on fire!
