Get Your Sting & Blackout: Live In 3D (Blu-Ray)
March 2012
Released: 2012, Sony Music
Rating: 5.0/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

The first Scorpions concert to be released in Hi Definition and they have mastered it flawlessly. The picture and audio is crisp and clear. I viewed it in 2D on a Panasonic Plasma in THX Mode. The colors look very natural and not enhanced or washed out. Very well shot video. The audio is the next best thing to being there with just the perfect mix and not too much in the rear surrounds. I have yet to view it in 3D so this review is solely based on the 2D version.

If any of you have seen the Scorpions on their ‘Get Your Sting & Blackout’ tour you will thoroughly enjoy this release as it captures the show perfectly. This Blu-Ray captures a full show in all it’s glory. Everything is there including Kottak’s drum solo with the on screen visuals that played behind him. All the ‘Hits’ are played from “Blackout” and “Rock You Like A Hurricane” to newer songs such as “Sting In The Tail” and “Raised On Rock”. There is something here for everyone, ballads to all out heavy numbers. Everything is covered.

After watching this Blu-Ray you will know why they are still one of the greatest and most respected bands in the business. There are few bands out there that can top them for musicianship and showmanship. They give it their all for over an hour and a half. I know after watching this disc several times I would love to go see this tour again. It was one of the best I have been to.
