A live Metallica concert backed by a 80 piece symphony orchestra, conducted by Michael Kamen. Two songs are debuted, "- Human" and "No Leaf Clover". A documentary is included. It also was released on audio CD.
I actually stumbled upon this DVD accidentally. I am a huge fan of the Chili Peppers but somehow hadn't heard about this concert. I of course purchased it, and after watching it, was just blown away. I have never seen the Chili's live, but I can say after about a decade of going to live shows and concerts, this was the best live performance I have ever seen. Every song is right on point, even the covers are amazing (1 cover is Havana Affair by The Ramones). Some highlights are Parallel Universe and Throw away your Television. Both songs are extended, mostly by John Frusciante just absolutely shredding the stage apart with his guitar. I have never heard guitar playing like this before, it's almost extra terrestrial. The intro to Californication by John and Flea is one of the more beautiful moments I can recall in live music history. John's 3 band mates are of course nothing short of excellent. The energy they display throughout every song is unmatched by any live band in music today. And John's harmonizing vocals to Anthony's lead is just perfect. I really can't say enough, I have probably watched this concert 15 times in about 2 months. And playing to 80,000 fans, with Slane Castle in the backdrop, it just doesn't get much better. If you want to see music played to absolute perfection, just check out Venice Queen, which is the last song they play before the encore. Breathtaking!
