 The Sting and Co Reunion in Buenos Aires

| | See all Bigal1870's reviews (36)

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

There can't be many of us of a certain age who weren't into The Police in the 80,s. Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland were in a select group of "Supergroups" along with the likes of U2 and The Stones who dominated the charts with just about every song they released. It seemed they could do no wrong and then at the top of their game they were gone.
That was in 1983 and despite never actually announcing they had split we all know that Sting went on to a very successful solo career and Andy and Stuart also went onto do other things.
When asked if they would get back together and do another tour the reply was "We would have to be certifiable to do that", but they did, hence the title of this 1 disc Blu Ray and 2 disc CD package.
The 30th anniversary tour covered 10 legs and 152 shows and this Blu Ray disc is one of the Buenos Aires concerts in Argentina at the River Plate stadium in early December 2007.
By all accounts during the early shows the boys were a little rusty, but by the time this concert was recorded they were back to their best and anyone watching this Blu Ray presentation is in for a treat.
Recorded with HD cameras this show is an hi def visual extragavanza, you could really only top it by being there in the crowd. From the very start you realise that this is a very special and lovingly put together package with no expense spared by the producers to get it right. Opening up with "Message in a Bottle" we first hear and then see Stewart Copeland behind a huge drum kit which, in Hi Def, is beautifully detailed. These days Copeland looks like a college professor with his round spectacles and thin face, but the amount of energy he puts into his craft is unbelievable and proves he has kept himself fit. Also looking superbly in shape is Sting who throws himself around the intimate stage with the gusto of a man half his 57yrs. Sting's voice has lost none of its uniqueness and despite the fact that he must have sung these songs a zillion times he keeps the crowd on it's toes with his enthuastic performance. In Hi Def it is easy to pick out the aged appearance of his guitar and we even see individual fingerprints on the fretboard. Andy Summer takes it easy on the stage and it is clear that time has taken its toll on him. Hi Def does no one any favours and despite not losing any of his ace guitar skills the same cannot be said for his waistline.
The quality of this HD transfer is stunning and the new reference disc for my system (yes even better then The Dark Knight). The stage work featuring our heroes is bathed in high intensity studio lighting which obviously gives the boys a whitewashed appearance, but this transfer handles it brillantly and glare is non existent with no detail being lost. The contrast between the brightly lit stage and the warm glow of the huge crowd is a bit like watching the night/day terminator on a high altitude picture of the Earth, but nothing suffers in terms of picture quality and the detail of the individual crowd members just adds to the experience that you are there with them.
With this being a musical concert different coloured stage lights are the norm, and what a treat they are to behold on Blu Ray. The stage is also back lit by two huge screens which shows the boys in action, and even this looks good. Blacks are inky deep and the 3D effect is in abundance.
The 1080p video transfer is supported by a Dolby Tru HD 5.1 soundtrack that is literally out of this world. The subwoofer gets a real working over and although the audio is a little front heavy Stings vocal soundtrack remains stable and clear.
Even if you don't like the Police or weren't around in the 80's ,and this is your first experience of them, this is a 5 star transfer

The picture and sound quality are amazing in 2.0 stereo. The songs are great performed, and I have to say this is maybe the best concert blu-ray/dvd I have ever seen. Genesis "When in Rome" is at the same league. Bruce Springsteen, Keane, Morrissey, U2 and many others are not even close.

 what to say?!?!...

Always loved The Police so was looking forward to this.
The Blu-Ray is stunning: very crisp image and great sound.
Of course the music is what you buy it for and the boys don't disappoint. Some superb guitar work from Andy Summers, Stuart Copeland is ace on the drums & of couse Sting is on top form.
Got this for Xmas, can't stop watching the disc, transferred to MP3 player as well.
Thoroughly reccomended. Best to send your wife out & ideally make sure the neighbours are out as well so you can crank the volume up & enjoy this properly.
