During the song "Breathrough", in certain shots with the backing singers in the background, the leftmost singer is a woman wearing a black top with something white tied around her waist, and a black hat. In other shots, she's not there. Throughout the song she "appears" and "disappears". See more »
A good lecture must begin approaching some very interesting subject, or a joke, to catch the attention of the audience. I believe the same principle applies to the opening of a concert. In this regard, David Gilmour almost spoils a great concert with an awful presentation of the wonderful "Shine on You Crazy Diamond Parts 1-5", with a very cheap and boring lonely solo. In this moment, I was completely disappointed with the DVD. Fortunately, he seems to be only warming-up for a great presentation.
Listening to the songs of Syd Barrett, and the most of the classics of Pink Floyd sang in the soft and beautiful voice of David Gilmour worth the show. I loved also Caroline Dale, magnificently playing the cello. The singers are efficient as usual in a Pink Floyd concert, only in a higher number (twelve, I guess). I personally did not like the narrative of "Confortably Numb" made by a guy in a wheelchair, in the Melldown Concert; and Bob Geldof reading the text, in the Royal Festival Hall Concert 2002, disappointed me a lot. I am Brazilian and I know the lyrics by heart, and the guy needs to read them? Further, lasting the arrangement of the song, extending the compass to change the guitar to an electric guitar is also very unusual in a live presentation. David Gilmour singing in French is also weird. The DVD has lots of Extras and I believe no fan will be disappointed with its content. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "David Gilmour in Concert"
