Just received my Blu-Ray+2 CD version of the new Celebration package. (from the 2007 concert)
Still in its wrapping as will definitely need to be watched/heard when the neighbours are away.
Anyone else taken the plunge yet?

Watched the bluray and dvd. I have been listening to the cd's in the car, to and from work. Simply brilliant, the chemistry between the group is interesting, quite some time taken facing into each other on stage taking cues. First two tracks were subdued, but once they get into their stride by track three and four they have assumed their own previous sense of pomp. Two hours later as the pull two encores and walk away, the emotion on the crowds faces reflects how I felt. Best two hours I have spent for some time in front of my tv.
Utter brilliance, the like of which we may never see again, i personally sent 39 emails for one of the 18000 tickets and failed in 2007, now I feel saddened that I may never see them live again.
I implore you guys, buy this piece of work, you wont regret it.

I've just ordered this and seen the preview. Percy's voice has lowered and matured somewhat as expected but I think, as you say, the chemistry and magic is still there. Looking forward to the show........
The Celebration Day concert is on BBC 2 - Sat 8th at 10.45pm.....in case it's of interest.
