"I was not an Oasis fan, i like many songs that i listen to through the past years (and watched the videos on MTV). But i have not any CD of them.At first, i wanted to buy the double CD set, but i prefered to bought the DVD.This concert is really amazing, the stadium,the images, the sound,the stage, the Gallager brothers, the crowd, this is much more than i was expecting. Now, i really say that Oasis is one of the better rock & roll bands in the history of England.Now, i am an Oasis new fan."
A must have for any fan of great music....

"Oasis in my mind is one of the top acts out there right now. Their passion for making great music is absolutely incredible, and it shows in their gigs. This dvd brings to you all you could ask for from this great band. Unlike 'There and Then'(although that was also awesome), there are many other features to the dvd than just the show. There is a very well done interview with Liam and Noel, along with 6 camera views on Cigarettes & Alcohol, which is a very cool feature. There is also stunning special effects on almost every song to bring a little kick to the show. And the best part; the gig itself is amazing. 'Familiar to Millions' is well worth it."
Even better than expected....

"I had high expectations for this DVD, and I was happy to have them exceeded. There are a few flaws- 1) the 5.0 sound is pretty good, but it is VERY (read: too) conservative in volume and bass, and 2) the set list is good but omits a few of Oasis' best songs. With that said, the picture is as good as a NTSC gets, it's very nicely directed with high energy camera work and video bits mixed in at appropriate times, and the gig itself is quite good. If this DVD was only the concert it would merit 4 stars.As a bonus, the extras are almost worthy of a 2nd DVD. In addition to playing with different camera angles, there is a fun documentary showing rabid fans before, during and after the concert and a short but sweet interview with each of the Gallagher brothers in seperate locations. There are many other good extras, but the best is the seperate video clips that were assembled for the screens behind the band during the gig. These 5 videos are set to the original studio music tracks and would make wonderful REAL music videos- better than almost everything on MTV these days. I won't ruin the surprise for you, but I suggest watching the videos before the concert- AT LEAST the one for "Live Forever".If you like Oasis and have a DVD player, consider this a must purchase. If you want to experience a great Rock and Roll concert at home, it doesn't get much better than this."
Three and a half, actually.

"Make no mistake, I'm a huge Oasis fan. I saw them in concert twice and actually got to meet Liam and Noel (even if it was for two seconds). Thus, I know what they're capable of in their live show and this DVD doesn't capture the full experience at all. Some of the versions on here are downright mediocre (Champagne Supernova, for one) and the rantings between the brothers Gallagher are incomprehensible. Is it really English they speak? Anyway, some of the good things about the DVD are the fact that, well, it's Oasis and they're just plain cool to look at. Noel's version of "Hey Hey, My My" is phenomenal as is the resurrected version of "Rock'n'Roll Star". If you're an Oasis fan, you should obviously buy this, but I'm still partial to Noel's acoustic set on "Live By the Sea" and almost every minute of "There and Then". I just wish they'd play more songs off of "Be Here Now" (yes, I'm one of the noble few who actually liked that album). Oh well, they're still an awesome band and I owe them a lot for getting me through High School!"
A Must For All Oasis Fans

"I watched this DVD as soon as I got it in the mail, and was not disappointed. On top of the excellent concert footage, which gives an accurate feel to actually being at an Oasis concert, the extras are a welcomed addition. The brothers Gallagher put on a supurb performance, along with new band members Gem Archer and Andy Bell on lead and bass, respectively. The new guys have taken the band to a new level musically, as can easily be seen on the DVD."
