Among the best concert DVDs I own, after you watch one you should pick up the rest in this order (and you will want more!):
1. Live at the Royal Albert Hall
2. Live in London
3. Live at Landsdowne Road (Region 2)
The quality of the 3rd disc is not as good as the first two but still excellent. It is though one of The Corrs best performance overall (save the best for last) and the highlight is the duet with the two sisters, Caroline and Sharon Corr. The sheer size and participation of the audience is amazing too.
You will be in audio nirvana with the first two DVDs if you have a high end audio system. After upgrading and tweaking my stereo system, I find that Live at the Royal Albert Hall is the best recording, also most of the songs on there are my favorites so that one is the most replayable to me.
If you were to only get one disc go for Live at Landsdowne Road.

In the modern age of Pop/Rock music, it is quite often a rarity to find a band as hard working and determined as The Corrs.And in 1998 in the heat of thier Promotional tour for their latest album Talk On Corners they landed what would be one of thier best gigs yet.
After practically selling their first album door to door in 1995-97,the band finally recieved mass success in the UK with their hit cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and that would only lay the foundation for a good many ears and eyes to recieve the music of The Corrs in their own home.
Originally broadcasted in the UK, The Corrs: Live At The Royal Albert Hall was finally recieved by American fans later that following year.
In My opinion their performance is raw yet flawless as they showcase thier true talents blended with a Celtic heartbeat. In fact as I mentioned above, with their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" they are accompanied by McFleetwood on (I believe) 3 tracks on this DVD. One highlight of the DVD is watching Caroline Corr play drumside with McFleetwood during "Dreams" and through the classic Irish traditional set "Toss The Feathers". McFleetwood truly looks like a primal beast up on that set as he beats out some AMAZING rythym and rolls.
Vocally They sound astounding. Visually the DVD provides a simple yet detailed look into a live Corrs show, Thus examplifying how they work as a unit live in concert. The Show has a few different sound options (that which I cannot remember at the moment) but if you have a good stereo system, this show will sound almost real . . . I played it on my Dolby system at my father's home and I was absolutely blown away, It sounds as though you are really there and once again visually (Along with Audio) the show is truly amazing.

Being an American fan, I don't get to see the Corrs on television often -- if at all. This was my first glimpse into the band's live performances, and I was amazed at what I saw.
Filmed on St. Patrick's Day, 17 March 1998 (which, incidentally, was Caroline Corr's 25th birthday), "Live at the Royal Albert Hall" is full of energetic singing and a thoroughly amazing performance.
It is obvious that the audience doesn't really have a clue as to who the Corrs are -- at the beginning. The Irish siblings enter with a bang, however, with the beautifully-performed 'When He's Not Around'. From there on in, the crowd is theirs, cheering them along through a great show.
What shocked me is how well they play live; it's almost better than on the albums. Some of the tracks are especially poignant, including 'Hopelessly Addicted', 'What Can I Do', and 'Intimacy'. Mick Fleetwood adds his expertise on the cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' (which is much better than the original), as well as the Irish instrumentals 'Haste to the Wedding' and 'Toss the Feathers'.
The DVD has no special features, but that doesn't stop it from being a great addition to any collection. The photography is wonderful, the sound quality is great, and the Corrs are, as always, amazing.

I first saw The Corrs on VH-1 a few months back. I had heard of their name, but wasn't familiar with their music. Right away, I knew this would be a band I would want to hear more of.
Since the VH-1 show was shot at the beginning of this year, it's not out on DVD yet. I couldn't wait, so I bought this DVD, The Corrs - Live at the Royal Albert Hall. It is from 1998. The quality of the sound recording is excellent! Very clear and clean. I'm not as impressed with the videography, though. The director chose to have quick shots of the individuals, back and forth. You don't really get a calm wide shot of them playing for more than a few seconds. I realize that's on purpose, but I think they miss the point that a lot of people buy a concert DVD to see the whole show, as if you were in the audience, not looking at just another snappy video production.
It's not unbearable, and it's not enough for me to say don't buy it, because I think it's good for the music alone.
...To summarize, if you know and like The Corrs, you need this for your collection. If you don't know who they are, this DVD should sway you to the best thing to come out of Ireland since U2.
