I'm kind of surprised.

Really enjoyed it in Liverpool earlier in the year but reception was so mixed here.

Will the DVD put people off going to these new dates though?

I'm not surprised they want to keep milking this cash cow. I am surprised that Minchin is sticking with it though as he will be on Californication in the states and Matilda will be in previews, I'd have thought he would be spending time with the press over there boosting his profile. It's a shame they haven't put it in the west end, I reckon I would have enjoyed it in a theatre.

I think that they hope the DVD will boost sales as people who are unsure about getting a full ticket but are happy to get the DVD (such as me) might like it and then be more tempted to go!

Picked up the DVD for 7 in Sainsbury's yesterday. Watching it now. It's not inspiring me to see the arena tour.

Dear Lord (Webber), when Chris Moyles is one of the best bits of your show you have a problem.

I'm actually quite shocked - I'm a big Tim Minchin fan, but his Judas just lacked any nuance. Mel C was, well, Mel C, the staging annoyed me, and even the subtlety of the score was lost.

Gethsemane was more like a teenager throwing a strop than a man having a spiritual crisis.
