SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Heavy / RPI / Symphonic Prog Team
4 stars This show called previously "P.O.V." has been restored and remix with the new technology. I can't compare this version with the first version. I can only appreciate the sharp picture quality. I have seen worst picture quality on recent high definition concerts, it just tells you how good it is. This was the "So" tour which was the album where I lost my attachment to Peter Gabriel music, but there are enough old songs to satisfy me like the great "San Jacinto" and "Family Snapshot". It surprises me that "Red Rain" didn't show up on this set list. The final 2 songs "In Your Eyes" and "Biko" are too long and kind of boring, but was a wise choice to put them at the end to get the crowd doing. It's always fun to hear Tony Levin on bass and naturally the voice of Peter Gabriel. The package contains second disks of Peter Gabriel videos. I have never been a fan of music videos, it is more a distraction for me, but here, the surround sound mixes by Daniel Lanois and Richard Chappell makes things worth it.
