One of the best concerts ever filmed.

Excerpt: This performance, single handedly made me a Peter Gabriel fan, so many years ago on DVD. I was eager to upgrade to BD more so than any other concert I've yet upgraded. I'd barely paid attention to Peter's music before the original dvd - which I bought primarily because fan anticipation was so enormous - but the energy, the spirit of it were so incredible, seeing them performed live, each and every set instantly resonated.
Excerpt: PQ and AQ are both perfect. Of course source material is 18 years old, but this Blu-ray feels really fresh and the whole show actually feels fresh and timeless. Musicians are top instrumentalists of the World and Peter´s voice sounds perfect. As a Peter Gabriel fan, I had high hopes for this release, but it is even more I expected! It´s "being in concert" -like experience. My new favourite music blu-ray! The must own for every fan of Peter Gabriel!
Excerpt: I love this album. I remember buying the 2-disc cd. The yellow and red one. The one with the super long In Your Eyes. Always makes me think of Say Anything. I can't find it though. Still I think I will buy this one.
Excerpt: Okay, not the best BR I have ever seen from a PQ perspective but the PQ is way above the grainy DVD version. No contest. Also, the audio has just that extra sparkle and clarity to it. The DTS on the DVD version was about the best that lossy DTS can get but the DTS MA is a step above that. A must have for PG fans even if you already have the DVD as I do.
Excerpt: I’ve had the double CD of Peter Gabriel’s Secret World concert since it was first released and it never gets old. In fact it’s on my iPod and still cops a thrashing. Having said that, I don’t believe music videos have the longevity of a classic film on blu-ray, the only other one I own being the rather excellent Chris Botti Live concert. Secret World, however, finds Peter Gabriel at the absolute height of his power and is a no brainer for anyone who cherishes his music.
Conclusion: I had the first release on VHS, then the DVD. The Blu-Ray is simply a massive improvement over video and audio quality. Don't be confused by the NTSC description, this is a 1080i encode and plays normally on any UK system.
