Last Tour... Buy It

"I was also worried about the region code problem. And the Corrs official website said the documentary was not available in the US, only the concert DVD. But I received Region Code 1 for US for both DVDs, so that was a relief.
The documentary should be of interest to all Corrs fans. It was not a terribly in-depth or powerful documentary, but still worth your time for the 90 minute look at their rise to the top.
The concert DVD is great for long-time fans. However, for those new to the Corrs I would highly recommend that first you buy Lansdowne Road (1999) and Live in London (2000) for the best big concert experience. Those performances are were energetic and magical from the peak years of this group. Geneva is a slight step down from those performances, particulary with Caroline being replaced on drums. Luckily she was at this performance, unlike most of the tour, and sat in on secondary percussion and harmony vocals.
The new songs are a nice change, particulary Summer Sunshine and Long Night. But otherwise, they seem to be playing most of the same set from 5 years earlier. Obviously they will always play Dreams, So Young, Breathless, What Can I Do, Runaway, Toss the Feathers, Queen of Hollywood as the core corrs songs. But it would be nice to see new covers to show off their musicality instead of No Frontiers and Old Town for 6 years now.
Documentary and extras make it worth while. Plus, it was probably their final big tour.
Get the old stuff first and you will be hooked. My must-see rankings:
1- Lansdowne Road 1999
2- Unplugged 1999
3- Live in London 2000
4- Geneva 2004
5- Royal Albert Hall 1998"

"The DVD they sent was a European format. When I call customer service they just sent another copy of the same."

"I ordered this 2-Disc Set and, like many others I was worried that I would get a Region 2,3,4,5 & 6 Set but, luckily I got an NTSC Region 1 and, it's also compatable with PlayStation2 so, I am very HAPPY!!!! This is definitely 1 INCREDIBLE DVD Set. Andrea, Caroline, Sharon & Jim are just GREAT! The Corrs are my 2nd favorite group of ALL-TIME!!! Hopefully everyone that orders this AWESOME package from now on will get the right Region Code. Long live The Corrs (especially Andrea, she's so BEAUTIFUL!!!)"
