  Coldplay Live 2012

The bands performance and song list is superb. The band gives an outstanding performance and it is definitely worth a watch, however, there are a couple of things to look out for. Firstly, what I thought was a single concert is actually extracts from several concerts glued together by the editor, which is not necessarily an issue but unfortunately nearly every song is punctuated by back stage and on the road footage and interviews. Why oh why oh why do Directors still insist on doing this? It was novel in the seventies but its not what people want, keep them separate, I just want to watch the band in concert then perhaps enjoy a back stage interview, but not both at the same time. The main issue though, is that there is absolutely no point in buying the Blue Ray, as the fluffy chinned Director, who is clearly experimenting with his first Apple Mac software editing package, has decided to use grain filters on nearly all the camera shots. The result is that not only do you get a feel of seventies editing, but it looks like videography from the seventies as well. If I had wanted both effects, I would have bought the VHS version! Stick with the DVD as I see no point buying the Blue Ray version unless you want the free CD that comes with it and in my opinion the band have been let down by the Director and poor editing. Have the remote by your side when you watch this so you can skip through the chaff to get to the concert footage.

An great Concert and a long time coming Last one was 2003.
Featuring music from Paris and Madrid its a concert that can not be missed.
The Menus are OUTSTANDING and awesome, easy to negociate.
My only quarm is that its upscaled SD recordings and Superwide screen. Otherwise brill
