Movie Reviews

The first 25 were great
Jeffrey D. Messer | Asheville, NC United States | 05/26/2005

"Here's hoping that there will be 25 more to follow. Of course the time between new material has stretched over the past decade, and as fans we might be lucky to get one more full album of new material from this band before they hang it up.

In the meantime, here's a great way to celebrate what we already know to be a super band.

Sure there are songs I would love to have seen make this release (Couple Days Off, Rythm Ranch (though it is in the bonus section), Change of Heart, and anything from hard at play) but what is here is enough to satisfy any fan. And any passer by who happens to pick this up as a nostalgia item. I am sure those who think the band ended around 1988 will be surprised at how they get pulled into the new sound and new songs. And here's hoping they go out and buy Plan B and discover where this band is now. They are a rootsy rock band, who know how to play a live show.

While most acts of their day have either faded or have resorted to gimick tours (Bryan Adams and Def Leppard anyone?), Huey and the boys are still packing 10,000 seat amphitheatres every summer, playing to around half a million or more fans each year. And since bands make their real living on the road, this bodes well for the boys hanging around for a while to come.

This show is them at their best, playing tight arrangements and enjoying themselves as much as (if not more than) the crowd who loves them

The produciton is first class, and the extras are nice. Here's hoping that this release inspires a new round of songs, that we will get on a new album in the next year or two.

A nice bonus is the song YOUR LOVE IS KILLING ME, a song they have had in their songbook for about 10 years, but have played only a few times. It was left off the Plan B album, but an instrumental version appears over the menus of the DVD when you load it. Lets hope that song turns up in full form again soon.
As well, let's hope we hear some hot new tunes this summer.

The heart of rock and roll is still beating and will continue to as long as this band keeps on rocking.

Long live the good news!"
The Heart of Rock & Roll is Still Beating!

"This is a terrific DVD of Huey and the News in concert. They perform many of their best songs on this DVD and each and every song is a killer. This DVD should be required viewing for any one starting a rock & roll band. They inject passion, energy, soul, and love into each song. I've been a Huey Lewis fan since his days with Clover, the band that preceeded the News and his voice and harp playing are as strong as ever. The new guitarist does not detract from the performance, as some have suggested, his playing is as strong and soulful as on the original recordings. Yes, the heart of rock & roll is still beating."
Front row and center!

"Even though "Live At 25" has not been released, I was at the taping for this monumental event. I'm sure "Live At 25" will exceed all expectations of Huey Lewis & The News fans from around the world. I was front row and center for the best show that I've seen Huey & The News ever perform. The band played a lot of their hits and then some. Here's to 25 more years of great rock and soul music!!!!"
