Just got my DVD/CD this weekend and that is by far the best money I've spent lately! What a cool show!

About the vinyl, my local shop keeps my pretty well updated on Alice Cooper vinyl, well, actually all vinyl I might be interested in... and he has not mentioned any official vinyl being available.

Will ask just to make sure, though.

Incredible show on the DVD, and the CD is a great addition!

Can't wait to see this show in person!

Did you know that this one came out on vinyl? :8):
That was absolutely new to me.
That`s because the single is a pirate. Not an official release.
It turned up last year in various colored vinyl, but, unless this is something new (doesn`t look like it to me), it's a pirate release.
Surprised it would be sold by Nuclear Blast, who as far as I know were a reputable record company.

Thanks for the info!

I've seen various versions of it now on the net today. If you google it you will find some mailorders who sell it as well.

But I want to have it anyway.. :grin:

Otherwise like you said: Nuclear Blast is a big Metal-Mailorder so I can't imagine that they would sell bootlegs. Maybe it will come out official and they will anounce it soon... but who knows...

Lisa, because of the language on the DVD cover:
I can only say that on EVERY Alice DVD I have bought in germany the text on the covers is always english so I doubt they will change that on the new release. But of course I haven't seen it yet...

Oh, and if you don't have a record player or don't like the vinyl here's another pre-order bundle -- this time the DVD with an Alice keylace. But sorry its all in german - can't find an english version of the site right now...

Thanks so much Atlanta Santa!
I'll buy that one instead (there's a Dutch EMP too, we call it Large here, it's exactly the same!)
:clap:

edit:
Pre-ordered it... Finally! :clap:

And pff... I hate that they show a different clip from the DVD each day @ AC.com... I'm so avoiding that website now :grin:
Want to wait for the real thing :clap:

Really Shoey? HMV? way to support STUK..

FYI for some of you new people, Ordering from the amazon links on the news page or the store helps support this wonderful site... Thanks to everyone who has ordered though our store, every little helps!

>I think that the vinyl is an unofficial release.

The possibility of releasing this recording again with different graphics and on vinyl is being considered.

I had a gift card that was about to expire.

I really enjoyed the DVD; good angles, good mix of band shots and certain audience members. The venue looked quite regal with those red curtains on the sides.

CD is good too, playing it now while I type.
If I may put forward a slice of personal colostomy...

Well I popped in to HMV today and picked up my copy. Spent a happy 90 minutes playing 'spot the sickie in the audience'!!

Brillant stuff, really sets me up for The Roundhouse.

I think I recognised 6 sickies, but you know who you are...and no doubt there were many more

Wish I had been at that gig. Would be great to appear on one!

For folks who care, the Blu Ray edition finally came out today. I held off on picking up the DVD version, as I've been waiting for this one. Picked mine up, but haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

My Blu-ray arrived Monday, and I watched it that evening. Fantastic show, and the Blu-ray quality is phenomenal!

It was released today in Finland. So I bought it, watched it and I loved it (That is a understatement). The performance was great, theatrics awesome and the setlist is one of his best ever and I have never seen such a brilliant Camera work in any concert DVD. It a was cinematic, mezmerizing, hard rocking and action packed experience. I even enjoyed the end credits(Welcome to my nightmare was played background during them).

Simply the best concert DVD I have ever seen.

Just finished playing spot the sickie, the DVD sure was worth the wait! Shame Alice doesn't do a commentary though like on GTSYA and WTMN, those are two of the funniest commentaries I've ever sat through. He should do one for every DVD :p

And they forgot to list us sickies in the credits ::((:

Yes, the Blu-ray includes the audio CD. And the mini-poster. Well, to be more precise, the U.S. version did. I assume the others do, too.

After having watched the TOD dvd, in my opinion, the Brutal Planet video/dvd is still the best.

I have finally got my copy of the DVD/CD

I went into the HMV shop in Crawley the day it was released, expecting to see a number of copies on the racks, but they didn't have it

So I had to order it, expecting it to take a few days for it to be delivered to the shop

Almost a fortnight later, it eventually comes in

Haven't seen it yet, but have got a nice bottle of vodka, and have told the pet dog that we will watch it tonight, at such a volume that he will not be able to hear (and be scared of) the fireworks that will be going off outside

He said 'woof'!
