    5Summer Rock Concert Fun
    By Stella Carrier
    I’m actually fortunate to have grown up with the music of Red Hot Chili Peppers because many of their songs were played on the local rock radio station where I lived as a pre-teen and teenager (I remember even seeing someone sport a Red Hot Chili Peppers t-shirt when some members of my family and I visited the Cedarpoint Amusement park when I was around 12 or 13 years old). Anyhow, this dvd of Red Hot Chili Peppers Live At Slane Castle contains 18 of some of their classic hits and is listed to be 102 minutes (with song hits such as Give It Away, Californication, Under The Bridge, Around The World, Scar Tissue, Other Side, By The Way etc.). I enjoyed their performances of Parallel Universe and Can’t Stop the most. However, there is something in this dvd for those who enjoy rock music. The end of the dvd lists their performance on this dvd to have taken place on August 23, 2003 and filmed on locaton at Slane Castle Co, Meath Ireland. There are also wallpaper extras that accompany the dvd of Red Hot Chili Peppers live at Slane Castle such as; The Can’t Stop Wallpaper extra has an image of a buffalo running through what looks to be a colorful and green countryside. The following other imagers for the other five wallpaper extra tracks; Throw Away Your Television-an explosion of various colors, Parallel Universe has a figure shaped as a woman running inside a blueish square (rectangle maybe?) against a turquoise blue background mixed with other colors. There are also wallpaper images for Give It Away, The Zephyr song, and Right On Time.

    5One Of The Best Live Concert DVDs EVER!
    By Loren West
    "The Red Hot Chili Peppers Live At Slane Castle" deserves more than five stars. I would give it ten stars if I could.

    On this DVD the Chili Peppers prove they are one of the best live bands in the world and one of the most important bands in rock! I have watched this DVD at least 10 times by now and it remains one of my favorite live concert DVDs. Anthony, Flea, Chad and (the great!) John Frusciante are absolutely at the top of their game here performing favorites like "By The Way", "Under The Bridge", "Scar Tissue", "Californication", "Give It Away", "Power of Equality" and a killer cover of the Ramone's "Havana Affair". Frusciante's clean, delicate, powerful guitar work is effortlessly brilliant and his high soprano harmonies blend exquisitely with Anthony's lead vocals. Anthony puts on an amazing show leaping around the stage like a man possessed. Chad Smith is an absolute monster on the drums; displaying power and precision equal to any drummer in rock. Finally Flea. Oh Flea how I love thee. Let me count the ways. There just aren't bass players this good out there. A true virtuoso. And he plays a pretty mean trumpet too. Buy the video and see for yourself.

    Watching this video prompted me to go out and purchase the remainder of the Chili Peppers body of work on CD and purchase every other live DVD of them I could find including one that keeps getting sent to me in the wrong region code. From what I can see this is the best live document of the band out there. At $7.99 it is an INCREDIBLE bargain!! I can't recommend it highly enough! "Live At Slane Castle" is one of the best live concert DVDs ever made!

    5great dvd if you love the Chili Peppers
    By Dirk Diggler
    I count myself a medium fan. Love all the radio play hits, and know a few deeper tracks, but not a super fan knowing lyrics and deep cuts. This was well filmed and music to vocal ratio was very good. For me they brought it home in the last 3rd where they played most of their radio play stuff, but the entire show was very good.

    The only thing I could have done without, was they seemed to change camera angels almost to the pace of the music. So during the fast songs or parts of songs you almost got whip lash the camera changes so fast. But that didn't take away from me wanting to watch it again, or regret the purchase.
