Over 300,000 people bid farewell to one of Australia’s leading bands, Powderfinger, earlier this year as the band traveled the country for their most extensive tour of Australia ever, which was also their last. The curtain came down for the final time, fittingly where it all began nearly two decades ago, in the band’s hometown of Brisbane.

Sunsets Farewell Tour DVD was released so this tour and it's timeless moments for fans shall radiate on and like so many Powderfinger releases before it, the Sunsets Farewell Tour DVD was flooded with accolades by industry and the rock press.

It debuted at #1 on the ARIA Music DVD Chart and became the highest selling music DVD debut this year, beating the likes of Michael Jackson and U2. Within a week Sunsets Farewell Tour DVD was certified 4 X Platinum.

Powderfinger’s Sunsets Farewell Tour DVD is a double disc DVD which feature a full live concert almost two hours long covering the band’s vast array of greatest hits spanning over their extensive career, plus a documentary of the band on the road of their final tour and looking back at their extraordinary achievements. It is also available on Blue Ray (one disc).

Madonna, Sticky And Sweet

This would have to be Madonna's best tour ever, and not for the fact that I was fro and centre at Madison Square Garden either… this is truly a fans show - with so many hits and magical reworkings, you will be stunned by the brilliance of this production.

The show, from the dancers agility and pure strength in performance, to Madonna's own never stop, never give less than 100% attitude is what makes this show great.

Give an added dose of amazing staging, production, choreography and lighting and your senses are overloaded.

The only issue i have with the DVD release is that it is slightly "over produced" in the editing and overlay of effects and video packages… i would have loved to have seen this show from two or three key cameras and just let is unfold on screen, as it was spectacular enough as it is without the need for post production.

without rabbiting on for pages about individual details, just go out and buy this release - you will love it, even if your not a fan. This is how a show SHOULD be done and is now the benchmark for all other artists to follow.
