3 stars I was very excited when this DVD came out, I even pre-ordered it so I could have it right away. But I'm disappointed, since this is not one of their best performances I've ever seen, and I've watched all their official DVD's. I don't know if it has something to do with the fact that it's recorded from different shows around the world, but that would be strange, because I was in the Mexico show on April 29th and I was really impressed on that day, even when it was the second time I saw them live.But when I listened to Petrucci and LaBrie performances on this video, I was shocked, I didn't remember them playing so bad, so I made an extensive search, and this week I was able to put my hands on a recording from the show I attended to, and believe it or not, their performance was soooo much better, specially LaBrie's (it's incredible, because this isn't a mastered recording) I can't understand why, since usually Mexican fans are underestimated and they play poorly, with less gear, etc. For example, when they were touring with the XX anniversary theme, Mike Portnoy had only 2 kick drums on his drum set, they didn't used their screens and Jordan didn't use his spinning stand, even when the stage was big enough... Anyway, I only wanted to share my experience and my confusion, don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan, but if this is directly produced by MP, I think it should have a better quality (I agree with a previous review by juanvalverde on everything he thinks about this DVD). Fans will enjoy it, specially for the bonus material, but this video just isn't what I expected.

I apologize for my very bad English use.
