"I dare any Foo Fighter's fan to watch this concert video without getting a major case of goose bumps! If you've ever had the distinct pleasure of seeing Dave Grohl and company perform live, you will cherish every moment of this show. Wembley is a very grand, and fitting venue for one of the greatest live rock bands out there today. And after an hour and a half of non-stop, blood-pumping live jam, they bring out Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones for the encore...are you kidding me??! Gotta go...I'm still watching!"
SIMPLY PUT, THIS SHOW *IS* ROCK 'N ROLL

"I wasn't even a huge Foo Fighters fan before I bought this blu-ray disc - I was partially getting it for the Jimmy Page/John Paul Jones experience. Well that all changed in a matter of two seamless hours of spine tingling Rock 'N Roll! Folks, this is one of the best shows you'll *EVER* see.
After watching the disc for about the 10th time I'd have to say Dave's ferocity, accompanied by the insane jam session and drum solo during "Stacked Actors", makes this one of the best performances I've seen on video in the past 20 years. By the time Page and Jones come out it's like icing on top of icing on the cake - no wonder Dave breaks down like a little girl for a second. And when Dave switches with Taylor to pound on the pig skins for "Rock 'N Roll" and you see the look in his eyes, I do believe he's actually dead and in heaven. As for Taylor Hawkins nailing Robert Plant's vox (less the impossible highs)... WOW, who knew? I didn't. These guys are AMAZING. And to see every detail of them, their instruments, the crowd, and Wembley Stadium in fine detail is simply breathtaking.
The *only* flaw in the entire TWO HOUR performance (and I wasn't even going to mention this but I must because it's actually kinda funny) is Dave has no clue what half the lyrics are to Zep's "Ramble On". They should have titled the song "Mumble On" for the disc - it's all good though, the triangle solo makes up for it :)
As for anyone who complains about extras missing from the disc, all I have to say to that is, "86,000 FANS plus JOHN PAUL JONES and JIMMY PAGE for TWO ZEPPELIN SONGS" (THERE'S YOUR EXTRAS)!
SIMPLY PUT, THIS SHOW *IS* ROCK 'N ROLL"
One of the best concert DVDs available

"I saw this tour at Red Rocks, and thought it was solid. However, this DVD captures a truly great performance with some great surprises. The boys (and gal) aren't just slugging through the hits -- they're having the time of their lives. You always hear about those "amazing moments" and this DVD captures it perfectly. Looks and sounds amazing, too.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I personally wanted to hear some different songs on the setlist. If you dig this setlist, consider it a 5."
Great Band / Great Show

"I saw the Foo Fighters this year at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas. We were in the very front and the show was amazing. I bought the DVD hoping it would be half as good as going to the show. The songs played for the most part are the same as the concert I saw. The footage is amazing and the sound is fantastic. Watching the DVD is almost as good as seeing the band live, in one aspectic it is better as no one is spilling beer on you in the comfort of your own home.
Get this DVD you will not be disappointed."
