Incredible LIVE performance
J. Tyler | 07/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I also just saw this concert on PBS, and was FLOORED. It is obvious that these guys have been performing live, non-stop since the late 1970s. On stage, these guys are a well oiled machine. The talent and skills are higher now than when they released Hi Infidelity. My wife and I watched this concert over and over on our Tivo, and like this live concerts vertions of the REO songs better than the original album vertions. The audio and video quality of the broadcast concert were outstanding and I hope it is on this DVD also. I am trying to find this concert on Blu Ray, but if it is not offered that way, I will still buy the regular DVD vertion because this is a performance I know I will enjoy with my wife for years to come.

After being so impressed with this, I will admit that my wife and I went to the REO Speedwagon web site to see if we can go see them live in concert! I have not been to a concert in over 20 years, but can't wait to see these guys in person."
Terrific concert!

"I've never been a major REO fan in that I've never bought a record or CD by them. But, after catching this concert on public TV, and being pretty wowed by their performance, I have to say I was very impressed by how tight these guys play together. The classic hits here really are done justice by these live performances and. because they have been ingrained in the classic rock public consciousness over the past 25+ years, they really hit you with more power than the first time you heard them ("I Can't Fight This Feeling", etc.). And, one of the new tunes, "Find Your Own Way Home" blew me away by how good a song it is - I've got to get the CD, and will also get this DVD when it comes out next month. REO has been around a long time and that fact makes viewing this tight & enjoyable performance even more amazing. This is no nostalgia act - these guys still rock, big-time!"
REO Speedwagon-At Their Best-LIVE in Concert!

"REO Speedwagon has been touring non-stop for 35+ years. They have sold well over 40 million records worldwide. Now, SOUNDSTAGE gives REO their due, and long over due it is. Performing from REO's heartland, right where they started the whole Speedwagon thing, right smack in the middle of the U.S., Chicago that is. Right away they start out with a rocker, Don't Let Him Go and keep it going with Take It On The Run. This gets and keeps the crowd on their feet. They then cut into a brand new song, the title track off of their new cd, Find Your Own Way Home. The reception after the song felt like the crowd wanted more new REO. But, instead, they kick into high gear and start jamming one REO classic after another. Even when you think it is going to slow down when they start playing their signature rock ballads, like Keep On Loving You and Can't Fight This Feeling, to the contrary, the audience is begging for more. And does REO Speedwagon satisfy. You get over 75 minutes of classic REO. You even get some rare interviews which wraps this Widescreen HD DVD taped in 5.1 Surround Sound up nicely. I gave it 5 Stars because that is just what it deserves."
The Wagon is still rollin.....

"REO is still rollin at full speed!!!. I saw the band at the height of their success on the "High Infidelity Tour", (along with 18,000 others at that particular time,) and i enjoyed this show as much as that! This is a great show, the stage,the sound, and song mix of old and new tunes are perfect.Although the crowd on this show is much smaller than the full size arena show when I saw them,the energy level between the band and the crowd is well documented here!Do not miss this dvd!!!"
