BUYERS BEWARE: I should start off by warning you that that there are 2 different versions of this DVD available on Amazon.ca. One of them has been censored (unfortunately this is the version I purchased.) They both appear to have exactly the same content although for some reason they're different prices? The explicit content version being cheaper. So If you think you might get annoyed (as I did) by having Chad Kroeger continually beeped as he talks to the audience or during some of his song lyrics then you should bear this in mind. Also, (although this didn't bother me as much) the audience is having quite a good time and there are several shots of topless babes showing Nickelback their `goods' as they sing and dance along, they have all been blacked out in the censored version. *The uncensored version says on the cover in a black box Explicit Content.
Now about the DVD. If you're a Nickelback fan than you'll love this, it's a great bleeping show and Chad and the boys are having almost as much fun as the bleeping audience. Filmed in Sturgis in front of 35,000 screaming, half naked, mostly female fans I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. It's just a great hard rocking show, featuring 12 of the bands majour hits. The sound and camera work are flawless with super close ups of the boys and the pyrotechnics are awesome. I can only imagine what they were like live if they looked this good on DVD. A couple of songs that stood out for me were; Woke up this morning, Side of a bullet and the awesome crescendo of Figured you out. The concert only runs about an hour but it's a really good hour.
Some great extras have also been include with a behind the scenes look at Nickelback feature, photo gallery, Sturgis 101 vignette and the Rockstar Video.Read more ›
