Meat Loaf's show at
Newmarket from Friday August 16, 2013 will be best
remembered, by his fans, because of the absence of
female singer Patti Russo. Instead two new ladies
were introduced: Stacy and Lyssa. The concert itself
was about average. Meat Loaf performed a 90 minute
show with mostly songs from the Last at Bat tour.
The quality of the DVD is fair. Different video
sources to make the show complete but not all video
material was that good. In the end 70% to 80% of the
footage looks good to very good where 20% is filmed
from such a distance, that it's hard to make out
what you're looking at. The concert is almost
complete. The last song has audio only (and comes
from the Newbury concert, one day later). Speaking
of audio, the sound from this DVD has basically 2
main sources. Other, less good, sound is used to
fill in eventual gaps. The main sources sound okay.
Lots of audience noise to be heard and not much bass
but vocals are clear. Nothing special but also no
distortions. Although Out of the Frying Pan has a 3
minute gap that needed to be filled and the audio of
the 2nd part of the song sounds terrible with
distortions all over. Luckily it is just 3 minutes.
The rest is about or just above average. So is the
video. I will rate
this DVD with 2 stars.
