Live at the Olympic: The Last DJ and More [Bonus CD]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Filmed at Los Angeles's Grand Olympic Auditorium on October 16, 2002 -- a stop on Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' tour for The Last DJ -- Live at the Olympic is an 18-track DVD concert home video packaged with a bonus CD. On the DVD concert, the band performs the entire Last DJ album in sequence, followed by four Petty originals and two covers. The Los Angeles Times said of the concert, "This is the grand, heartfelt, gimmick-free rock whose demise Petty mourns." The bonus audio disc includes four previously unreleased live tracks taken from the band's PBS Soundstage performance.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released nine months after the studio album The Last DJ, Live at the Olympic: The Last DJ and More is a DVD project that contains a performance of the full album, in order, plus an encore of some old Heartbreakers favorites and rock & roll oldies. Petty must value The Last DJ, since he not only performed the full album in concert -- a rarity in rock & roll -- he also released it as a live video, indicating that he had more faith in the material than his audience had demonstrated thus far. To a certain extent, it's hard not to admire that stubbornness, and by releasing Live at the Olympic, Petty does give listeners a second chance to evaluate the material. To be fair, it sounds a lot better live augmented by Jon Brion's orchestral arrangements, since the Heartbreakers are always a strong live band, but when "Change of Heart" and "Need to Know" come in after the album, it's a relief, because the bandmembers are playing material worthy of them. It's a professional DVD -- it's well shot and the sound is excellent in both the PCM stereo and DTS mixes however, it takes entirely too long to cycle through the menu screens -- and that may make this a good souvenir for the hardcore fan, but those final six songs are so much fun that it makes anybody else wish that this was a straight-up hits concert instead of a showcase for The Last DJ. [The bonus CD, Bad Girl Boogie, contains four covers cut during the Last DJ sessions -- "I'm Crying," "Done Somebody Wrong," "I Got a Woman," and "Carol." It's inconsequential, but it's a fun bonus disc.]
