SOURCE: PRO SHOT          -        GRADE (OVERALL):
For those not familiar with the concept let me first explain the Night of the Proms concerts. It's an annual thing in October to December where a symphonic orchestra plays classical music in combination with pop/rock music. The tour goes through Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. And every year another pop artist highlights this event. In 2001 Meat Loaf was the main event for the 12th annual Night of the Proms. And what suits a symphonic orchestra better than the music of Jim Steinman! The opener is Bonnie Tyler with her performance of Steinman's Total Eclipse. And then Meat brings us 4 great Steinman/Meat Loaf hits.
I had to create this DVD myself. All performances are from TV broadcasts but none had all Meat Loaf songs in it. So I gathered footage from Belgian, Dutch and German TV and combined them into one concert. I also created the Proms logo on top (to mask out the different channel logo's) and made the concert widescreen for viewing pleasures. Because of the different sources the quality varies a little. But it is overall good. Paradise has been cut short for the TV broadcast (the 'fighting dialogue' between Meat and Patti has been cut short) but the other songs are complete. I edited them together and now it does feel like one 40 minute concert. Anything for Love is fantastic, Home by Now is also superb and the other songs are simply great. All in all a 4 star bootleg!
Running Time: 43 minutes
