4 stars First of all, this is the longest DVD of all Hackett's DVD with a running time of 2 hours and 26minutes. So we have a lot of material here, but the DVD contains no extras. The quality of the songs is good from start to finish with 1 song from the "Beyond The Shrouded Horizon", and 5 from the "Out of the Tunnel's" cd. With this latest stuff, we have some favorites old songs and some Genesis tracks, and if i am not mistaken, this is the first time, at least that Hackett played "Carpet Crawlers" on a DVD.

The camera work is good and the only audio option available is a very nice 5.1 surround sound that offer some nice surprises along the show. There is some newcomer in the musicians department with a female guitarist (Amanda Lehmann) and Nick Beggs of Kajagoogoo, yes this is not a joke. They both did a nice job with their performance on that show. All in all, it's a very good concert to have in your collection, that would have been better if the picture quality for the distant shots in the back were not as blurry as they are here. Just for that detail, this DVD is not as good as is previous one "Once Above a Time". Oh Yes, Steven Wilson played on 2 songs, and John Wetton in one, the Bob Dylan's song "All along the Watchtower".
