"Like the other reviewers, I couldn't agree more. I went to the concert when he came down here to New Zealand, and the concert still stands as one of the best concerts I have ever been to, and believe me, I have been to a lot!!
So I was very keen to have a record of this great concert but this was total [hogwash]. Not the show!! The visual presentation of the show. I can't even watch it, its done so badly. Here's a tip Mr Director, just point the camera towards the stage area - and walk away!! Believe me it would have been better if he did.
See if you can rent it first before you buy it."
Hey Jude is worth it all by itself.

"If you grew up with this music like I did, than some of the tunes are likely to draw out some memories and possibly along with a tear. The DVD and performance just gets better as you go. Of course I would love to have 20 more songs and 2 more hours, but this is a great DVD. I was at the show in Dallas, TX in 1989 and it was great. There are moments that you think Paul is 28 again on some of the songs. The old Beatle classics just reminds me of how huge of an icon this man is and what an incredible talent. And of course the fab four classics are the highlights here but put it there is really a nice piece. This is just a great release for any Beatle or Paul McCartney fan. For the budget conscious its a bit pricey and takes a while to get, but if you can foot it, grab one and hold on. The memories will last for a long time."
Just get it, you won't regret

"I was at Maracana, Rio de Janeiro, where Paul broke the record of attendance on a single artist show, and it was really awsome and no words can describe that show. This DVD is only one piece of the full lenght show but it is really one of the best tours that Paul McCartney has ever made. The sound on DVD is very good and I believe it worth any cent you spend to buy it. I've got mine here in Brazil a few weeks ago and i am still watching on the screen to remind that day. I think the only think they missed it was the lack of the documentary about the tour which was released after the VHS was done and so this is why I gave four stars to this title. I now is only waiting for the release of the Cavern Club show on DVD to complete my colection."

"This is a DVD of Paul McCartney's 1989-90 world tour. Twenty tracks were selected and accompanied by enjoyable, but unnecessary, extra footage of the Beatles and the '60s. The concert is filmed very well, and Paul plays some of his best material. From the minute he kicks off "Band on the Run" to the moment he ends the beautiful Abbey Road medley, he never ceases to come through strong. Other highlights include "Put it There," "I Saw Her Standing There," "Back in the USSR" and "Let it Be." Paul, to me, is not 48 years old in this film. He still rocks as hard as he did at 22. Good work, Paul."
