All I can say is Have you heard the new Nightwish album with new singer?

Yes, she sounds spectacular.  If you like Nightwish you would like After Forever.  One of the highlights of the weekend.

Spot on, April. AF's Floor has a voice to die for.

What a treat to watch this DVD. I appreciate the great performance of the guys and how the editing features the right performer at the right time in each song. Sound and picture are crystal clear and allow the emotion in John's voice to really shine through. The crowd were on their feet from the opening bars and stayed there. Stellar musicianship throughout. As someone else mentioned the only better thing is being there. I bought 4 copies and now some of my Christmas shopping is already done!

this weekend I went to Best Buy to purchase the Fantasia DVD and they totally didnt have it in stock...I hate Best Buy..s000 Worst Buy. Im just g0nna order FantAsiA from the band's web site directly.. its pr0bably the best way to buy it IMHO...I really cant wait to watch the AsiA DVD .. so Best Buy also didnt have the new David Gilmour DVD "Live at Royal Albert Hall".. I have never been so upset at Best Buy in my life... I saw a ton of GnR DVD's but no AsiA or DG ... I kicked rocks and bought Pete Townshend "Psychoderelict" Live in NYC, SER version of "Emminence Front"..

not a whole lot i can add about the Fantasia dvd. the sound is awesome, the editing and camera movement are great, and 18 tracks. i had to turn down 'Fanfare' as it tripped the breaker on my system. God knows i love those bass pedals. all i need now is a HD tv. also i was glad to get to see and hear 'Without You' live...finally.

I finally got Fantasia, and I can do  nothing more than agree with most of the comments above, quality performance as always and quality DVD this time.

I only wanted to note that the distribution of the item has not been very good (at least in Barcelona, I know in the states must be everywere), and that may have affected its sales, especially in these days. A couple of friends have also been trying to buy it directly (not by internet) without success, and I found it after a tour of 10 or more record shops. On the other hand, numerous other John Wetton releases were easily seen, including "Chasing the Dragon", which I didn't know was re-released in 2007, with a slight change in the cover and 2 extra live tracks from Argentina.

I know it has to do with the distributors, but I wanted to express it (I have my copy, but I don't want people to get other DVDs instead of the one they had in mind) and, even more important, that DVD makes you want to live the experience, buy the concert ticket, etc.

Well I got it off my chest

I agree Roger - same story in Calgary anyway...it was difficult to find, but worth it.

Finally got to see the DVD all through and just wanted to say I thought it was brilliant.  I especially like the versions of 'The Smile Has Left Your Eyes' and 'Don't Cry'.  Also fantastic version of 'Roundabout' which prompted us to add 'Fragile' to our Yes CD's.

I received the DVD for Christmas, and I have to say it's the best concert video I've ever seen.  The music was great, of course, the sound quality was spectacular, and the camera work was top notch.  Loved the interviews as well.
