5 stars Just got through watching this for the 1st time and now got it going for a 2nd time. Never seen Pete solo, just with Genesis in ' 72. Absolutely terrific! His theactrics still mesmorizing and tasteful. His magic tricks still there, (remember the black hood and white gloves trick with Genesis?). What really kicks me is Tony Levin (usually a straightfaced type on stage) just having a ball onstage with all the antics going on. Peter just pulled out all the stops here on this tour, sorry I missed it. He still can keep a light-hearted atmosphere while still being serious. To get a little arty, it seems that the film was delibritley filmed with a little grain which is ok, kind of reminds me of Marty on The Last Waltz (for you die-hard proggers, Martin Scorsese directed one of the best concert films of The Band's farewell concert in ' 76 and has become a staple of concert filming). Now to get technical here, if you don't have an amp with DTS capability, you better get one with this. The sound is absolutely immersive! The drums just thunder all around you. Manu Kache, IMHO is got to be one of best drummers today. As for concert DVDs, I have to rank this with Zep's DVD, Roy Orbison's Back and White Nights and Eagles Hell Freezes Over disc's as far as sound. All in all, great performance, stellar sound and great Peter, hair and all! Enough said, a full 5 stars.
