"If you never got the chance to see Men Without Hats back in the 80's this will probably be your only chance, but what a chance! I was lucky enough to see them in 1983 when Rythym of Youth came out and they still can make you get up and dance after all these years with this video concert. The added Bonus videos are just a little more icing to the cake and well worth putting on this disc. Very well worth getting for any fan of the HATS or the 80's in general. Long live MWH!"
Maybe they need some hats afterall

"Since you found this review, I'll assume you are already familiar with MWH's music - techno-synth-pop I think I'd call it. This video comes from a 1985 concert, and was maybe a vanity production for the band. Most shots are of the vocalist's head, and a few of the rest of the band -I would guess they were using 3 or maybe 4 cameras at most. The quality of the video is good considering it's age. Clarity and color are good, but not nearly HD. The sound is is not mixed for 5.1, only stereo (and it sounds mono) but was recorded very well - it sounds great on a good home system. The performance is marred a bit by the keyboardists inability to hit the right notes on some songs, such as Antarctica. On the other hand, the drummer (who was not a regular band member) is excellent. If you liked the band, or are just curious about them, buy the DVD if you can survive the steep price without whining - you are hereby forewarned of what to expect. Two more thoughts: although it says Region 2, it played fine on my US DVD player without any modifications - but be sure YOURS can do the same. Also, I saw a statement elsewhere that this DVD was pulled from retailers in 2006 because it lacked proper clearances, but here it is in 2007."
