Live at Monsters of Rock is a live album Northern Irish blues guitarist and singer Gary Moore. It was recorded live on May 21, 2003 at Sheffield Hallam Arena in England, during Gary Moore's appearances on the 2003 Monsters of Rock tour.
Although not billed that way, this live DVD finds guitarist/band leader Moore backed by his Scars group of Cass Lewis on bass, and drummer Darrin Mooney. Recorded without overdubs or additional sweetening at a single Monsters of Rock gig in Sheffield, England on May 21, 2003, this is the video equivalent to the previously released audio CD. As such, if you have a choice, it's preferable, since the audio is mixed into startling 5.1 surround sound, which provides an even more explosive and live feel to an already intense, and very loud show. The camera work, which eschews the MTV style of quick cutting, is very good. It captures the performance from a variety of angles, focusing on Moore's guitar and generally making the watcher feel like they are on-stage with the band….
Power guitarist Gary Moore's Live at Monsters of Rock is a dream come true for every guitar freak out there. Teamed with his trio of Cass Lewis and Darrin Mooney, Moore turns it up to 14 and powers his way through razored, crunching covers of the Yardbirds' "Shapes of Things" and Free's "Wishing Well" before delving into his own rather voluminous catalog…..

On Saturday 16th August 1980 Rainbow took to the stage to headline the first rock festival to be staged at Castle Donington. It was the culmination of the band s tour in support of the hugely successful Down To Earth album, released in 1979, and would prove to be the last live show featuring this particular line-up of the band: Ritchie Blackmore (guitars), Don Airey (keyboards), Graham Bonnet (vocals), Roger Glover (bass) and Cozy Powell (drums). The set featured tracks from the new album alongside classics from earlier in their career. There are virtuoso solo spots for Blackmore, Airey and Powell which serve to highlight the sheer musical prowess in the band. The show climaxes with Ritchie Blackmore destroying his guitar and thrusting it into an amp which promptly bursts into flames before fireworks burst overhead at the conclusion of an explosive show.
