I have seen Tommy numerous times on stage and enjoy every minute of his superlative playing, and wonderful personality. This DVD brings all that right into your livingroom.
Too much singing!! the Mel Bay DVD is far superior...IMHO

"I love Tommy Emmanuel..but the previously released DVD in concert is much more to my liking...Tommy playing his great repetoire of standards and originals like nobody else in the world! This DVD has him singing too many songs and a guest female vocalist on at least 4 numbers....I allmost feel its misleading to not have her name on the front of the DVD!
There are many better singers in the world...few better guitarists...stop singing and play!"

"I have seen Tommy Emmanuel perform live twice, both times at the Little Fox Theater in Redwood City California. The venue is small, tiny really, and accoustically near-perfect. If you get there early you can sit with your feet on the stage and watch him work from five feet away. Tommy's skills on the guitar surpass all others I have seen. I am officially a "senior" and have marveled at the skills of many.
This DVD, "Tommy Emmanuel - Live at Her Majesty's Theatre," captures the Tommy you see in person. Each song is prefaced by Tommy telling you about it, and what it means to him. The production is wonderful. There are shots of all of him and shots of just his guitar and his fingers flying in a way that looks impossible, but there it is. Listen for the influences of some of his heroes. There is Chet Atkins "The Chief" who inspired, mentored, and recorded with Tommy. There is Les Paul and Doc Watson. You will likely pick out more.
Whether you are a long time fan or are just learning about Tommy Emmanuel the guitar player, singer, song-writer, humanitarian, Son, Dad, and most delightfully captivating entertainer, do youself a great big favor. Buy this DVD, put it on your player, and settle in for a wonderful, magical, experience."

"This man can play! But the sound and production is not too hot on this one. Also his choice of songs did not grip me. Think Eric Clapton Live on Tour 2001. That is how to do it.
But I'll rent his other ones - he is a master on the guitar. No doubt."
