Customer reviews & ratings
This DVD is excellent. I have already watched it many times, especially the bonus features which were not aired in the original show on the CMT channel. The music is great whether you are a rock fan or a country fan. I bought it because I love Def Leppard but the whole thing was very well done and blended well all together. I only wish they also had it in Blu ray.
Got this for my Husband for Father's Day. Taylor Swift is his new crush. She replaces Stevie Nicks. This is an excellent DVD. He really likes DEF LEPPER too. He watched it 3 times and loved it. I like it too so I would recommend it to anyone who likes great music.
This is a great concert DVD. There are great songs in this concert. Taylor Swift and Def Leppard did a great job. You can tell they had a great time doing the show. The 3 bonus songs and interviews are a great bonus.
They go together like peanut butter and chocolate!
I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but this concert has so inspired me that I have to spread the word... It's an absolute revelation! Taylor Swift is a genius! Thank you for reintroducing Def Leppard in all their glory to all of us. The twist of the male/female duets gives new flavor to familiar songs, especially on "When Love and Hate Collide" (absolute magic!). TAYLOR ROCKS! Once you've seen the performance, you realize that Taylor and Leppard's music share more similarities than differences: simple, poetic, passionate, well-crafted lyrics with anthemic pop choruses and great guitar work. Watching this on a big screen TV beats watching it for free on the internet on a little computer screen any day of the week. Buy this DVD now, you will watch it over and over again.
Taylor Swift and Def Leppard
This is a great video.
Great DVD and music
I never would've put Taylor Swift and Def Leppard together on stage...but it totally works. Taylor's and Joe's voices complement each other well, and everyone on stage looks like they're having a blast. It's just a fantastic concert video and I highly recommend it for fans of Taylor Swift and/or Def Leppard!
Now the whole family loves Def Leppard!!!
I've always been a Def Leppard fan, and recently attended their concert. My wife and 3 daughters love Taylor Swift so this was a great combo for us. We were all surprised how great they sound together. If you like to own any music videos or concerts then this is a must-have. Well worth the money and it will permanently remain in my collection. My wife never liked 80's/90's rock and didn't know any Def Leppard songs. Now she really enjoys listening to them, with or without Taylor.
awesome but short
Bought the tape because I love Taylor Swift and think she is so talented. I wasn't disappointed. DEF Leppard was also good and the short interviews between songs were entertaining as well. Taylor sings with DEF Leppard and they sound very well together doing her songs and theirs. Only disappointment was that it was only 45 minutes long.
Nice to see these artists trying new things
I'm a Def Leppard fan myself. I like it when they go off and do different things. Some people call it selling out. I call it flexing your artistic muscles. It was an enjoyable show and included many of each artists hits. Keep an open mind when watching and it is enjoyable.
Taylor Swift & Def Leppard GREAT COMBO SHOW!
I seen the show when it aired on CMT's Crossroads. I have been a die hard fan of Def Leppard for 25 years and have never cared much for Taylor Swift. I gotta tell ya, this performance swung my vote. Still Love Def Leppard more than ever and actually enjoyed Taylors performance. They both interviewed Great and they both complimented each others music well. For me to say that is something. No one is good enough to compare or pair up with Def Leppard as far as I am concerned but I gotta tell ya, Taylor swung my vote and I really enjoyed the show. Adding this DVD to my collection will be very enjoyable and with the bonus interviews and songs, you can't go wrong for the price... Enjoy!
Taylor Swift and Def Leppard match very well together. Taylor's pop sensibilities and Leppard's rock blended into a very entertaining hour of music, fun, and lively personalities. She softened areas which benefited from a lighter touch and they pumped some additional life into the ballads she pens. I had (honestly) not heard much Def Leppard or ANY Taylor prior to the broadcast last year of this "Crossroads" and found I liked both. Well-done.
New CrossRoads DVD
Glad I heard about this with the addition of the bonus tracks that were not shown on the original broadcast. VHS tape of the original broadcast had the commercials and the skips and jumps that are usually associated with the broadcast so it was great that this did not occure with the DVD. The Bonus section is a great addition. Anyone who is a fan of either Def Leppard like myself or Taylor Swift should add this to their collection. They will be pleasently surprised at the great combination of the two artists.
Two of the hottest acts of all time, on one stage!
This DVD is very well integrated with cuts to interview excerpts between each song, a nice touch. Plenty of extra content, from extra songs to extended interviews. On stage Swift and Elliott complement each other well and "almost" made me wish she was a regular addition the the Leppard sound. Elliott carries his years well on stage next to Swift as they make a stunning singing duo. It was nice to see Swift's band in action interacting with the Leppards. Being primarily a Leppard fan, I could have enjoyed even more footage of Swift's entourage. The slide guitar and violin added to Leppard's style gave it a slightly different and refreshing sound as well. I was surprised that the Acoustic onstage attack of Two steps Behind was saved as an extra, that was phenomenal! Though I would have liked more of Swift on one verse of that song instead of just as backup. It is just so unique to hear a different vocal style accompanied by the Genuine Leppard band with Joe cheering them on. Also I liked the fact that Joe got to horse around more with the band than he usually does since he had some vocal breaks. Swift's outfit for the occasion was off the hook and she showed off some great moves! I just kept waiting for her to jump through a ring of fire and touch her toes in the air! But that unfortunately didn't happen...maybe next time. :) I would give this DVD 6 stars out of 5!
New Swift Def Leppard
The DVDs I watch again and again are the concerts and this is now one of my 3 favorites: Swift-Def Leppard, Metallica (Ft Worth & S. F. Orchestra Concerts), & Pink Floyd in Concert at Oakland. Like Salt & Pepper, Bread & Butter, Swift & Def Leppard are a timeless combination--a classic performance that should appeal to a wider variety of music lovers than other performances. Includes excellent interviews which make you feel like you are there.
An unlikely collaboration.
This is a great concert - I only wish they didn't have any "interviews" between tracks. It would be much better if the concert were uninterrupted and the dialog was separated at the end. I bought it as a Def Lepard fan but I am now a Taylor Swift fan as well. She is adorable!
Taylor Swift with Def Leppard dvd Product
I loved watching this dvd today. I watched it on t.v. and just had to have it went it came out. The preformances are amazing. And the quality of the dvd is amazing also. The dvd is vary clear and seems like HD! Its simply amazing! I would recommend it to anyone!
You will love this
You don't have to be big fan to enjoy the wonderful collaboration between Swift and Def Leppard. It's very well put together and the hits are HUGE. There is a reason it's the only Crossroads released on DVD...it's THAT good!!
Very cool video
I saw part of this concert on the Palladia HD channel on t.v. When I found out it was on dvd I had to buy it and I'm glad I did. I only wish it was on bluray instead of dvd.
Great for both Def Leppard and Taylor Swift fans!
Great concert. I'm a fan of both Swift and DL, but if you just happen to like only one of them, go ahead and get it anyway! I guarantee you won't be disappointed =]
