"This is a first class DVD. Picture and sound are outstanding. Tom and the boys are in top form here. The eight bonus songs on disc 2 are very good. This band is so much better live. A lot of highlights on these two discs. If you ever thought about buying a Tom Petty DVD get this one."

"This DVD is different - a little more tame. It's an opportunity to hear Tom and the boys do some standards and some different stuff. If you are looking for rock and roll - you may be disappointed. Personally, I love it - but I love anything Tom does!"
If your a TP&H fan there is no question you are going to buy

"I will let all the other reviews discuss the songs the band does (originals and covers from other artists), the camera angles, etc. Frankly, if your a fan you will purchase this. If you are in a TP&H tribute band, you will purchase this. So my review will consist of an observation I had while watching this as one aspect of this production struck me as odd. When I have gone to rock & roll concerts, TP&H as well as others, as anyone who has been to a rock concert will know, there is (usually) an energy, sometimes a frenzy emanating from the audience. Sometimes this is more evident as the opening act may get a luke-warm response (most people remaining in their seats, politely clapping at the end of songs, etc) while the headliner elicits much more fervor.
In this Soundstage production, there is no sense of that fervor from the audience, it felt almost like a dress rehearsal from the band...I actually felt bad for the band as I know that they feed partly off the audience to get their energy levels and juices flowing to put on a great show. I have only watched it once so far, so maybe it is just that you don't hear the audience as they were not recorded well, or maybe they were recorded on a separate track and turned down in the studio, I do not know. The audience shots of the people you can see up front are generally older (whom can afford those choice seats of course) so you do not see a lot of movement from them. Is any of this important? NOT AT ALL. Personally, I would rather have 5 separate video feeds that focussed on each member of the band that I could watch separately as I love watching what each member does; what are the chord voicings the Mike, Tom and Scott are using, which keyboard or piano is Benmont using, what drum fill Steve is playing. This never happens in any concert video, so...sigh.
The only reason I gave that description above is to prepare one for the lack of energy and really audible cheering from the audience; it does not SOUND like a live show as some of the best live albums do. Again, this is NOT a bad thing, just different.
Still, I for one enjoyed most of the covers and all the original songs the band did, and I do Highly recommend this 2 DVD disc set. A LOT of music for the money."
