Miley Cyrus performs as herself and also as Hannah Montana, in the same concert.

Guest stars include the Jonas Brothers.

What makes this disc special is that the concert is in High Definition 3-D, and all you need are the four pairs of red/blue 3-D glasses that are included with the disc.

Commentary

3-D and Blu-ray are finally hitting the shelves. Although most of the 3-D movies that have been released in recent time use polarizing filters to give you a separate left and right image, this one uses the oldest method, which is a pair of glasses with one red lens and one blue. It works in color by having one eye see the full color image, and the other eye sees the stereo image in only one color. The 1950's movie Hondo used this technique, and I hope it gets released in Blu-ray, as it was one of John Wayne's best movies in my opinion. Another old film that used it was called Gorilla at Large, and I would prefer that Hollywood not waste any money releasing it in 3-D Blu-ray.

Technical

The 3-D effect is excellent, but you can opt to just watch it in 2-D if you like. Some people get a headache when watching 3-D movies. Live concerts sure sound great in 7.1 surround, especially when it is high rez DTS HD Master Audio.

Extras

These include Backstage Disney, additional songs, and other things.
