VIDEO:

This concert arrived at blu ray with 1080i/AVC-MPEG-4 1.78:1 encode. It was filmed on June 24, 2005 as an episode of PBS's 'Soundstage' series, presented at the newly restored Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, Illinois, and broadcast in 2005 as part of the Soundstage series jointly produced by WTTW, the PBS station in Chicago, and HD Ready.

From the first shot of the (then) recently renovated Genessee Theatre in Waukegan, Illinois, you will notice the popping bright vibrant colours projected on the drapes, walls and backdrops. Colours, contrast and black levels are solid throughout the entire show. There is fine clarity, detail and vivid colour. (4/5)

AUDIO:

There are two choices: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 or LPCM Stereo. I personally prefer the lossless DTS track, which is dynamic and rich, plus being fully immersive, utilizing every channel in the best way possible. The thick Gibson guitar solos are just as audible as the bass riffs. The same goes for the harmonica, keyboard, drums, saxophones and star-shaped tambourines. You can always hear it all. Just as you can hear every instrument at any given time, none of the vocals are lost in the mix, only making the several-part harmonies sound exquisite. (4.5/5)

CONCERT:

The former Beatles drummer is accompanied on stage by his band, the Roundheads, as well as special guests (meaning they only show up for a song or two) Colin Hay of Men at Work and Hay's wife, the talented salsa and soul vocalist Cecilia Noel. With nearly a dozen musicians on stage, I can honestly say that this is the best that Ringo has ever sounded without the rest of the Beatles.

Ringo did a fantastic job in this abbreviated concert.

Great performer and a lot of fun! Jan. 11 2012
By Robert D. Keller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Even though this concert is only about an hour long, you feel like you spent the whole evening with Ringo. He is very concious of the fans. He seems to always be relating with them while you watch this Blu Ray. He makes you feel like your right there along with him too. You never feel disconnected or left out. I love the way he did the UN-Encore. That cracked me up! You have to see it. I can't tell it in a way that would equal the way Mr. Starkey does it. I 'LOVED' seeing him get behind the drums for a while too, even though he also had to be the front man. Oh, and he even played the Piano at the beginning of 'Don't Pass Me By'! The band was tight and sounded great. I don't think there was a moment that Ringo didn't smile, and I appreciated that. What a showman. I HOPE I get to see him live at least once, before he decides to call it quits. He never acted like he was special, or elevated himself over the other band members. He was just being one of the guys. Although, we all know he's special,....and always will be.

Great concert! Dec 20 2012
By Beatle Fan 1970 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This concert features Ringo playing Beatles classics that he rarely performs live (if ever)... Don't Pass Me By and Octopuses Garden! Ive seen Ringo live several time and these great songs are left out. Considering how great they sound on this concert i hope he considers including them as concert staples. This show lacks the usual greatest hits night of the supporting band (although it has Who Can It Be Now by the Men At Work guy). Wish it included more songs from the band....their contribution is half the show! Instead you get Ringos new material which some songs are surprisingly catchy..others the usual B-side at best type songs. Sound quality and picture on this blu-ray are awesome! Loved it!
