Live 8 DVD

I just got the Live 8 DVD for Christmas and was saddened to see 'Unchained Melody' after 'One' was cut off

but did any of you laugh your asses off at Chris Martin's yelps at the end of 'In My Place'?

He sounded like a monkey

When Chris Martin tried to segue 'Rockin all over the world' into one of their songs it was so cringeworthy

I've only gotten to the end of Coldplay's bit, but his yelpings are comic gold

U2's set was pretty awesome and Bono has an F-bomb edited out in Vertigo

mmmm.... I think the point was that Status Quo opened the original Live Aid...there was lots of press in the UK that they should also open Live 8....Chris Martin was meerley nodding in the direction of this methinks....

Anyway cut the U2 vs Coldplay crap - there both great in the own right... (If you have any doubts go see a Coldplay show - )

I'm not comparing U2 to Coldplay

I'm just talking about my favorite Live 8 moment so far that just has to do with me laughing at Chris Martin

I have it, and its incredible how they have edited the thing, not tven the "ehen in london its 2 in the afternoon, we welcome the world to LIVE 8"... or the apoteosic entry of Macca and U2...

and if you recorded the show, you can clearly see that some takes in the DVD were not the originals, also the sound is changed... like in Bon Jovi's LIVING ON A PRAYER, when it happened live, the loudest crowd readction was in that song: the OH, LIVING ON A PRAYER were deafening.. and in the DVD, they were rturned down or at least they increased the ritchie/bryan vocals..

I want to get this, as I didn't get to see much of it, it started at 1am here and I was alseep.

I think I might avoid Elton John and Pete Doherty's version of "Children of the Revolution" though .

I laughed until I cried. The least they could have done was edit it out to spare the boy some grief. But I suppose the DVD editors felt it needed some comic relief.

The only performance worth watching again and again on that DVD is Pink Floyd's. It gives me chills. Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour occupying the same stage for the first time since 1981.

Yes, I also miss the classic intro. Its on another clip I recorded however.

Some sound editing is just natural for a DVD release so thats fine with me. The backstage blah is nice to watch. Nice you know. The Floyd rehearsal is more interesting.

Other than that, I can´t find the JoBurg set was released anywhere and that is a heavy mistake.

I'm a fan of the entire dvd... yeah, it's missing some stuff. yeah, some things were edited... but as a record of the incredible performances that day... it's one of the best live dvds I've ever encountered... if only for sheer volume! lol

Some of my favorite bits are

* Annie Lennox singing "Why"
* Robbie William's entire set
* The Scissor Sisters entire set ... though editing out "Everybody Wants the Same Thing" was a shame... that's a great song I can't wait to see on the new album!
* Coldplay and Richard Ashcroft doing "Bitter Sweet Symphony"
* Snoop Dogg -- to me, THIS was comic relief

And MacHat... you should definitely indulge in Pete and Elton doing "Children of the Revolution" ... it's so bad it's good!

I probably will see it at some point, out of morbid curiosity

Pete isn´t scary at all - he just sucks - actually you can see pretty much talent for ruining a great song on this DVD. I mean, everyone hated that performance because pete was so unprofessional.

Sure there are good performances. salut to Madonna´s dancers Snoopy Dogg does a fine set. Same for Annie Lennox. Stevie Wonders set is just fucking incredible.

Coldplay and REM have always bored me and that´s not gonna change anytime soon.
