    I just bought it today, so far it's great.
    Great sound, great image. Better then the secret world tour IMO.
    Anybody else bought it so far?
    What do you think?

    I bought it at archambault in Boucherville, it was only 20$.
    We wanted to see the concert but it was so expensive. When you think about it, we saved 280$

    Yeah Cole was great on Secret World Live. I enjoyed her so much that I bought her solo album...which turned out to be utter poo-poo.

    I lvoed the movie also!
    And it was regular price.
    Come watch it here if you want!
  10. Better than Secret World? not so much better as different, Growing Up is much more personal and Intimate, Opening with Here Comes The Flood was very moving, how many concertts do you go to and here a pin drop on the opneing song.

    Gabriels Daughter is great for backup , but her solo singing was and is the weak point. shes definitly no Paula Cole.

  11. sorry, hit the wrong key!! :eek:

    Tony Levin was the man as usual. He must be in the guiness book for most recorded bassist, or at least close to the most recorded.

    anyway, the DVD is a must have for us poor folks who couldnt shell out the $$ for the tour.:bassist:

    I saw a preview of "Growing Up" and it didn't look like Manu Katche' on drums. Who was Gabriel's drummer for this tour?
  13. Might it have been Jerry Marotta, who played with Gabriel throughout the '80s?
  14. No, It was a guy named Ged Lynch, he worked with Gabriel on the OVO project. the guy is very good, follows the tradition of Manu and others

    My gf recently gave me the DVD but we haven't watched it yet. I saw PG on his Nov 2002 tour and it was killer!
