4 stars Having been at the Lille and Ittervoort shows before this was delivered I was interested to see how the DVD would compare.

No worries here!!!, this is an excellent DVD with an interesting setlist, sure it would have been great so see Indigo on here but it good to see the likes of Breaking the Spell, Voyager but also more less played tracks such as And we'll go Hunting Deer and Learning Cuve.

What really comes across here is the togetherness of the band, they are all having a great time, Nick is always smiling and the addition of Scott Higham has really made this band a force to be reckoned with.

Scotts metal background has been cleverly integrated to give Pendragon more bite and it really works, his backing vocals are also well used.

Great performances from Peter and Clive, especially Peter doing a sterling job on guitar on The Voyager, you get the impression that this is a band on top form with a stonking album and live show.

Nick as ever is in blistering form and it shows, great technique, feel and sound, the standout tracks for me are King of the Castle, Freakshow, Easerhead, The Voyager and Queen of Hearts for the finale which is superb.

The bonus edition comes with the soundtrack as well and this is also very good listening, bad points? only one the crowd seem so quiet and inactive I appreciate that it is a seated venue but although they seem to be enjoying themselves I would preferred a little more participation.

I thoroughlt recommend this DVD good value and you will watch this again and again.....enjoy!!!!
