This is the second
bootleg of this show. This bootleg only misses the
Freebird Jam and All Revved Up from the encore.
Boneyard is incomplete but the other songs are in
full and all the Meat Loaf banter with the crowd is
on this DVD. With
that it's 30 minutes longer than the first bootleg
and thus almost complete. Video is overall very
decent. Many close up shot of Meat and the concert
itself is a fun one at Meat Loaf's home ground.
Audio is not fantastic. It has a continues
distortion which you get accustomed to but it's not
the audio you hope to get when the concert itself is
so much fun.
In fact I think this was one of the best shows Meat
Loaf gave during this U.S. tour. Meat looks and
sounds energetic. The crowd seems completely into it
and there is plenty of interaction between Meat Loaf
and the fans. The band is fantastic. This was the
last tour with CC Colletti and the first of Danny
Miranda and Justin Avery. You can tell everybody is
having a great time at the House of Blues in Dallas.
Also, the fact that it's a small venue gives the DVD
a certain atmosphere as if you are right there in
the crowd. What a shame the audio isn't any better.
If the audio was good this would have ended up with
a 5 star rating, for sure! Despite the bad audio but because of the great show
and the very decent video this DVD still gets a very
decent 3 out of 5 stars.
