Rod Stewart Live at Hyde Park 13-sep-2015 BBC Radio 2

The biggest danger to health as Rod Stewart closes BBC Radio 2’s “festival in a day” in central London isn’t any of the singer’s old vices, such as riotous behaviour and blizzards of cocaine. Instead, it’s the risk of broken limbs from people tripping over an Ikea’s worth of garden furniture that litters the park and is invisible in the darkness.

 

It’s a curious event – Stewart is preceded by the Corrs, Bryan Adams and a DJ set from Giorgio Moroder (in a backwards baseball cap), that he keeps interrupting with short anecdotes – made even more curious by Stewart’s choice of set. Instead of his usual, slightly tired arena set of singalongs, he promises to showcase less familiar material. Given that he has been a global superstar for 45 years, the concept of “less familiar” is relative, but the result is fabulous.

Download and watch

This concert is a basic piece of history in Rod's career, a must keep for every Rod Stewart fan. Here you can choose to watch the concert online (as long as the BBC allows the concert to be hosted on Youtube) and also you can download the video of the concert as a stand-alone mp4 computer file or a DVD ready file which contains a set of 2 DVDs in order to preserve good image quality.

 

This version of the concert is 90 minutes long: it includes the intro by the BBC, the track "Angel" which is missing from the high quality versions already available around the internet, it includes the "fuck off" moment banned for the BBC, and the outro. The image quality of these files is amazing.

 

THESE FILES ARE INTENDED FOR FANS AND ARE FREE DOWNLOAD, PLEASE DO NOT SELL THEM - DONT MAKE MONEY FROM THE ARTIST AND COMPANIES INVOLVED IN THIS PRODUCTION. THEN AGAIN, THIS IS NOT FOR SALE AND NOT FOR PROFIT. DO NOT ASK US TO SELL A DVD COPY TO YOU, IT WILL NOT HAPPEN: IF YOU CANT DOWNLOAD A FILE, ASK A FRIEND OR A RELATIVE WHO KNOWS ABOUT COMPUTERS ON HOW TO COMPLETE THIS TASK.

This is the easiest way to have the video of the concert stored in your computer or maybe even in your tablet  forever - TABLET WARNING: the file is 2.41 GB size, so if you are using a tablet be sure you have that free space before start this task.

 

I strongly recomend you perform this task on your computer.

 

To download the video file, you have to click the image below these lines and you will be lead to the MEGA server. It is a very safe server which works better with Google Chrome and/or Mozilla Firefox browsers. It might ask you to install an add on in order to download the file, you can perform this action without any worries - it will not imply spam or any other thing to your system (you DO NOT need to open an account).

 

Then click on "download with browser" and a count down progression on how the file is downloading will start. It might take from 15 minutes to few hours, depending on the speed of your internet conection - we are dealing with a BIG video file.

 

Once it reaches the 100%,must likely a window will pop up asking you on where to save the file on your computer - be sure of choose a familiar location, like "my documents" or so. On some browsers (depending on your browser settings) maybe that window will not appear, and must likely the file will end in "my documents" folder. Once you choose the location to save it, it will take a few more minutes for the file to finish the download. Once it finish, go to the folder where the file is, click "play" and enjoy.

 

You could also put the file in a USB stick and hook the stick on your smart tv and watch it there.

Download 2 DVD set.

USE YOUR COMPUTER FOR THIS TASK - YOUR SMARTPHONE OR TABLET IS MOSTLY USELESS FOR THIS TASK.

 

To download the double DVD set, you have to click the image below these lines and you will be lead to the MEGA server. It is a very safe server which works better with Google Chrome and/or Mozilla Firefox browsers. It might ask you to install an add on in order to download the file, you can perform this action without any worries - it will not imply spam or any other thing to your system (you DO NOT need to open an account).

 

Then click on "download with browser" and a count down progression on how the file is downloading will start. It might take from 30 minutes to few hours, depending on the speed of your internet conection - we are dealing with BIG video files.

 

Once it reaches the 100%,must likely a window will pop up asking you on where to save the file on your computer - be sure of choose a familiar location, like "my documents" or so. On some browsers (depending on your browser settings) maybe that window will not appear, and must likely the file will end in "my documents" folder. Once you choose the location to save it, it will take a few more minutes for the file to finish the download. Once it finish, go to the folder where the file is.

 

You will get a .zip compressed file, which contains the DVD Ready folder. You need to have the ZIP or the winrar software installed on your computer, you can get it from clicking on a link below in case you dont have it already on your computer.

 

Once you have the .rar saved on your computer, you have to extract the 2 DVD folders inside (DVD1 and DVD2).

 

Tthere is a  VIDEO_TS folder inside each. That VIDEO_TS folder contains all the files needed for a DVD, so just have to drag and drop the folder (do not touch, move, rename or delete ANY file inside the folder!!) into a blank regular DVD and burn it.

 

Remember to set it as "finish" or "close" the disc before burning, or also choose the "Track At Once/TAO" option which is the same. Burn it at 6X speed so it can be compatible with your regular dvd player.

 

Once you are done with the first disc, repeat the burning procedure with the DVD2 and enjoy this magnificent piece of history on your tv.

 

There is included a regular .JPG image file: it is the artwork of the DVD. If you happen to have a spare DVD case you can print this file and use it for your case - it has the precise measure of a regular DVD case - but you have to print it on LEGAL SIZE PAPER, since it is slightly bigger than regular size paper: set your printer settings to print at original image size and the minimum bortders your printer allow, even better if you can choose the "no borders" option.
