Fan Can Six - Copenhagen is a Metallica Fan Club EXCLUSIVE, limited to 7500 units (combined DVD/Blu-ray.) This is a show filmed from July 27, 2009 at the Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is ONLY available in the limited edition Fan Can Six. This is not a stand alone Blu-ray disc.
Review : This one is above and beyond what the other are for many reasons. Most importantly being it was shot by Metallica Fan Club Members... FOR Fan Club Members. You will never find this for sale at your brick and mortar stores. You won't find it on Amazon.com... or anywhere else for that fact.
This Blu-ray is ONLY available to the Metallica Fan Club in what is simply known as "Fan Can Six." Once every couple of years, the Fan Club releases these "Fan Cans"... a simple paint can with a cool design, loaded with exclusive memorabilia. Usually limited to only 5,000 units, they go fast, and once they are gone, good luck ever getting one at a reasonable price.
But buying one wasn't as simple as ordering it. Fan Club members had to enter a reservation contest in order to purchase one. If you won the contest, you had a Fan Can secured. This Fan Can would be different from any before it, in that you could choose what format you got your video in... DVD, or Blu-ray.
Fan Can Six had it's production numbers bumped up by 50% up to 7,500 units. But these units would be a mix of either DVD or Blu-ray concerts included.
Now that I got the history of "where this Blu-ray" came from... onto the review.
From the get go, you get the bootleg feel of this show. But not your typical bootleg... this has some serious polish. Missing are frantic cuts and takes with special effects (camera edits) that you've become accustomed to in a concert movie (Slipknot - Disasterpieces, Metallica - Live Shit! Binge & Purge.) You get the sense that you're in the show because of this. All the footage is from the fans perspective, looking up at the band, or down from the balcony. So you get that type of realistic feel in the shot selection.
Smooth transitions and beautiful picture. Shot in true 1080p HD all through out. But as nice as the picture is, the audio is even better. Nicely mixed for great low tones with awesome highs. The music is nicely balanced all throughout each song. The mix is awesome between the crowd and band, giving you the real feel of being at the show.
If you can ever get your hands on this, it is a must own... not only because of it's exclusivity, but because it is the only way you could experience the World Magnetic show in the round... that is if you didn't go to a show.
