More like a circus

"Having listened to all of Tiesto's mix albums over and over (and over!) and seen Tiesto many times, I was excited when I saw this on the shelves, and bought it right away.
What's great about Tiesto mixes in general is that he goes from song to song and you don't even know he's doing it, and he keeps lifting your spirits higher and higher. By the time you get through an album you fill like a million bucks.
But not this. I think he tried too hard at this concert -- he brought in a bunch of performers and dancers and (it felt like it anyway...) clowns. He basically tried to pull off too much, and frankly it felt more like a circus than a DJ show. The music was similar. Too many styles, even when spread over three hours.
When I want to listen to Tiesto live mixes, I'm back to listening to Magik mixes. This DVD is gathering dust. I may even give it away."

"When this came out, it was way ahead of it's time. No other DJ has done this since, especially on this scale. In a world that flips almost once a year you cannot critique track selection. If you missed it, you missed it...it was progressive at the time. The second "concert" was no where near as good. This had the "around the world" theme and mixed in "world" music interestingly. I bought this in '04 and was blown away. If you have never seen it, I think it is probobly still worth watching despite the fact some of the tracks might be worn out by now."
One of a kind!

"Words can simply not describe this incredible concert that took place on May 10, 2003....but here's a little info. Dj Tiesto gives an extreme set and covers just about every angle in this brilliant performance. The DVD captures a significant 200 mins(Plenty to leave you breathless) of the actual performance which was about a 7-8 hour set. An extra DVD is included with 95 minutes of Bonus material such as the Traffic Music Video, TV commercials, the Making of, etc. Any true fan of dance music will truly appreciate the time, effort and dedication that went into the making of an event of this magnitude...Camera's do a great job of covering different angles of Tiesto, the crowd and throughout the whole Stadium in which the concert was performed. 25,000 fans sent into a musical journey around the world with stunning visuals, effects and especially lighting effects which were completely amazing..! Throught watching the DVD you will fall into all sorts of high's that the "Journey" sends you on which will leave you with goosebumps shivering down your spine! Live performances By Andain, Dinand and The Lady of Trance herself miss Jan Johnston (and more)...makes you truly appreciate the quality and consideration to make this a wonderful night to remember..A definate recommendation for anyone who appreciates good quality music from the worlds #1 DJ! Events of this magnitude don't come around too often...do yourself the favor and check this DVD out!"

"I'm surprised that only one reviewer has noticed this. Where is the sound of the crowd roaring? This is cd quality music from start to finish with no crowd roaring. But if that's what they wanted, then why release it on DVD? I'd watch it much more often if it had the original concert soundtrack. As far as the concert itself: the performers they featured between sets was a little too much; they were more like clowns. Another thing I didn't like is that you don't see much of the anyone except Tiesto. He's in 90% of the scenes. Why? We know it's his concert; it isn't as if devoting much more of the footage to the kids attending the concert would've confused anyone. This is why I'm not giving it 5 stars.
Visually - this DVD is absolutely stunning. I didn't mind the camera angle changing every 2 seconds. The best part of the concert is when Tiesto gets to the middle of Nyana. The combination of the stage effects at the climax of that song, together with seeing Tiesto just lose himself was incredible."
