"First off let me say I am not a fan of "double dipping" but I made an exception for this disc after purchasing the DVD version several months back I knew it was a must own on BD when I saw it come out last week. For those who thought it was full screen, relax it just like the DVD, 16:9 widescreen. I give the picture quality 4/5 stars. It is an amazing improvement over the SD DVD. Slight grain and some noticeable edge enhancement keep it from being a perfect 5.
Now for the hidden Easter Egg I found! The Menu list only 2 Channel PCM Stereo or Dolby Digital 5.1 BUT I was cycling through the audio formats on my remote and low and behold DTS 5.1 - HD Master popped up on the screen !!!!!! It was a HUGE improvement. All of the sudden the audio exploded out of the A/V receiver with jaw dropping clarity. I give the audio 5/5.
This has become my defacto concert demo disc until David Foster gets together with Andrea Bocelli and they re-release the 2006 "Under the Desert Sky" on Blu-Ray (please, please!). This concert has something for everybody. Over 2 dozen stars in just over 2 hours that goes by in what seems like only 30 minutes.

Excellent concert superb in blu ray with amazing hidden audi

"I saw this concert when it was on PBS and thought it was superb. When it was released as a cd/dvd combo I was intrigued but cautious. The cd had just a few songs and I have a blu ray player. Thank God I waited for here it is on blu ray and it is spellbinding, using blu ray and all its capabilities to their full effect.
The video is crytal clear, crisp with vibrant colors. The thing that is truly amazing here is the audio. The menu just shows a 5.1 surround option but be sure to go thru the audio options on your blu ray remote for there is a spectacular lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 option. This is reason enough to purchase this concert. I don't understand why they don't show this option on the menu or on the case. The music will soar out of your theater system. Spoken word as well as singing and instrumental are all stunning.
The concert itself deserves the highest accolades. There is almost 2 1/2 hours here of music. It t is the perfect mix of conversation between David and each artist with the majority of the time being given to the music. And it is music of the highest caliber. Everyone will have some favorites here but each artist is in top form and each performance is perfection. I didn't fast forward through any part of this. My personal favorite is Katharine McPhee's powerful performance of SOMEWHERE and spellbinding duet with Andrea Bocelli on THE PRAYER. I am also a huge Michael Buble fan and his charm and talent are put on full display here. Kenny G, Josh Groban and Boz Scaggs are all superb. I had never heard Blake Shelton before and I am a new fan. I also got to relive my disco days with the amazing vocals of Cheryl Lynn on GOT TO BE REAL.
This concert is a production of total class from beginning to end. Each artist is given their time in the spotlight. David Foster shows grace and true humility as his full musical legacy is displayed. This concert is a must have and if you have blu ray you will be astonished at its visual and vocal beauty. Even if you already have the dvd it is worth double dipping to get the glorious blu ray. And if you don't have blu ray then you must get the dvd.
Enjoy this must have concert. It is a definite treat you will watch over and over."

"For anyone that likes all kinds of music. This show was probably the best show I've seen. I live in Las Vegas & go to a lot of shows. I was in the audience for this show & I've seen the PBS special. I took my sister & we walked out of there after 4hrs just amazed. I'm glad I can buy the DVD so I can always watch this when I want. There are not enough words to describe how fantastic this show was."
HIT MAN:David Foster-Absolutely Stunning Show!

"This is a celebration of 30+ years of David Foster's career.
I didn't know he wrote or produced so many great songs especially
during 80's & 90's.
As a Blu-ray Disc, I'd rate Video Quality 4.5 Star and Audio 5 Star.
As stated this show won't be complete without proper 5.1 surround
sound system. The sound with DTS Master Audio 5.1 was just fabulous!
It really gave a good workout for my home theater system.
There are several big name artists such as Andrea Bocelli,Peter Cetera,
Brian Mcknight,Josh Groban etc..however there are some surprises too.
Young singer Charice from Philipines was fantastic!
This concert is enjoyable for almost everyone especially if you like pop
music from 80's and 90's. It's definitely recommended for music lovers.
