Captured in London at the Hard Rock Calling Festival on June 28, 2009 in HD, the 172-minute film documents 27 tracks of live Springsteen that begin in daylight and progress through a gorgeous sunset into night.
Established singer-songwriters and acclaimed newcomers perform country, blues, rock, folk, bluegrass, and related styles of music from Studio 6A of public television station KLRU (formerly KLRN) at the University of Texas at Austin.
You don't even have to be a huge fan of the guy to enjoy this disc. Billy Idol clearly loves what he does and energy just pours out of him. All of his big hits are presented here; including fantastic acoustic versions of White Wedding and Rebel Yell.
I've always like Billy Idol, but watching this DVD really intensified my respect for him (and his guitarist). He's the rare, real deal. Too few of today's "stars" represent rock with any respectable amount truth and motive. He just plain *likes* to rock. And you gotta love it.
10 out of 10. Almost deserves an 11 for the White Wedding and Dancing With Myself segments.
