5 stars Phenomenal!!! If you really have a prog heart and do not have this DVD yet, get out and get it, and you can read this later. One of the best concerts available out there in my opinion. Everything is perfect. Starting with a special fogy atmosphere, where you can see so many face and body expressions from a surprised, sometimes wild, amazed, very emotional and at one point terrified (18 min, Grendel) teenage audience, who lived this, one in a life time experience a 100%. The audience remained me Bowie´s Ziggy Stardust concerts, where there is people crying, screaming and making complete silence at certain moments. "Garden Party" for example, is played in a slightly different on drums, but this is because we all know what the memorable Ian Mosley did later there. This concert captures the last gig of first drummer Mik Pointer. The performance of all musicians is awesome, Trewavas, Rothery and Kelly are concentrated on their collaborations within their spaces, so you can feel, that the stage belongs to the Jester, to the one who is in charge of the amazing, theatrical and very emotive singing. Fish sings, talks, acts and leads. It is his band and time. His skills to sing a melody where there is nothing, are unbelievable. Changes clothes too. A little talking against wars and politicians, about the future generations and a very honest performance. You can´t miss it!
