Concert DVD recommendations

So I'm trying to add to my video concert collection. I've searched the forum and got a few great recommends (thanks Josh). I thought I ask here to see what the members have to say. Before anyone says "what style do you like, or who's your favorite artist?" Let me just say its eclectic and wide ranging.

So if anyone has or has seen a great video concert with well mastered audio I'd appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance

A recent addition to my music video collection is "Seal's: One Night to Remember." It was excellent on Dish concert series, HD quality, and superb audio. Unfortunately, it is only on DVD and although the audio still sounds great, the HD version was better. It's also a PAL DVD so be sure your display handles that video resolution (have to adjust Region in Player to import).

For quite awhile I had a copy on my Dish DVR at our Hawaii home, even bought the DVR from Dish after service was cancelled just to keep that particular recording, but unfortunately one of our housekeeper's mistakenly erased the content (long story), so I'm hoping Dish will air that concert again at some point so I can re-record. Until then this DVD will suffice.

Adele's video sounds great but the video was shot by somebody with ADD.

For a great concert video, see Michael Buble's one at the Wiltern. I think it was "Caught in the Act" but I am not certain. Top notch audio and video.

The Dave Matthews / Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City B_R is outstanding for content and production. The HD video is almost 3d without being 3d and the black levels are amazing. It's also 24-bit/96kHz Dolby TrueHD and that's still pretty rare. Well worth the purchase. I suspect you'll love it and also use it often when you demo your system to visitors and friends.

I'm new here, but have been reading for a while. Great call on the Dave Matthews Blu-Ray. It was amazing!

Eric Johnson - Live From Austin Tx

This is some sick, sick, playing to be sure. "Cliffs of Dover" and "Desert Rose" are positively inspired and incendiary. An essential, unbelievable live performance; anyone who wants to hear truly great guitar needs to own this. Eric extracts more nectar from a Fender Strat than anyone since Hendrix, but even more versatile (if that can be imagined).
