4 stars Actually I was suprised this DVD was not yet included in the archive. Thanks velvetclown. I want to be the first one who submits a review on this "jewel". This DVD, includes the 20th year anniversary show, held in 2001 in London, and some nice parts taken from various soundchecks held during the whole tour. Starting with energic Awake and Nervous, going through various hits such as The Seventh House, Capricorn, Headlong (together with former bass player Tim Esau) the first part ends with an integral version of The Last Human Gateway, which alone worths the buying of this DVD. Disk 2 includes 5 encores and a nice part of old songs by The Lens (group which then has generated IQ) with the 4 musicians Paul,Martin,John,Mike (no vocals during this part of the show) dressed as seventies groups, with long hair (even the serious Martin Orford!). In spite of the limited budget which is showed by a very simple scenography , what is outstanding in this DVD is the excellent sound quality, and the warm atmosphere created by the band in relation with the audience.. A must for IQ fans, and for those who wanted to be part of that show and for different reasons, could not (just as me!)
